I received this press release:
Assemblyman Dan Logue Formally
Announces Re-Election Campaign
North State Assemblyman and Chief Minority Whip Dan Logue today formally announced that he would be seeking a third term to the California State Assembly running in the new 1st Assembly District seat which includes approximately 50 percent of his existing district. A small business owner and staunch opponent of government waste and over-regulation, Dan Logue has served two terms in the Assembly where he has taken the lead in restoring California’s beleaguered economy.
About Logue, Congressman Tom McClintock stated, “Dan Logue is of the great forces in the Assembly, Californians could not possibly have a more fearless or energetic defender against over-reaching bureaucracy than Dan Logue.”
“Dan Logue has fought tirelessly for the working families of California,” stated north state Assemblyman Jim Nielsen, who currently represents a large portion of the new district.
“For the past three years it has been my distinct honor to serve the voters of the north state In the Assembly,” stated Logue. “I know that California’s economy and California families are struggling, businesses are leaving and taking jobs with them.”
As the Chairman of the Caucus Task Force on Jobs and Economic Recovery Logue has defined the greatest challenge confronting California. “The challenge of our time is to build bipartisan consensus that leads to real reforms. Reforms, which reduce regulatory and tax burdens, encourages business and job growth and restores our economy. I have a record of doing just that and we have had some noteworthy successes.”
Logue has clearly established himself as California’s leading voice to revitalize the economy and keep jobs and businesses in California. The National Federation of Independent Business has awarded Logue a perfect score based on his voting record and support of small business. His widespread efforts have also drawn the attention of media outlets across the nation, including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, FOX News, CNBC and the Los Angeles Times.
Logue organized and led bipartisan legislative hearings up and down the state to listen to the concerns of business owners.
In 2008 He held the first out-of-state hearing when he took fellow legislators to Reno, Nevada, to hear firsthand from businesses their reasons for leaving California.
More recently, he led a bipartisan delegation of policy makers including Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom to Texas to meet with economists, Texas legislators and with businesses who had left California in order to better understand why Texas was adding 165,000 jobs while California was losing 1.2 million jobs during the same time period.
Logue has also demonstrated his effectiveness in getting his legislative package and priorities successfully through the process with six of his bill passed and signed into law this past year, placing him in the top tier of successful lawmakers in his Caucus. Those bills passed represent important progress in several areas including; encouraging job creation, public safety, saving taxpayer dollars, and supporting law enforcement. Several of which are critical to the rural areas of the north state and most will have a significant statewide impact. Some of those bills include:
AB 415 The Telehealth Advancement Act of 2011
AB 44 Notification of Inmate Release
AB 434 DNA Forensic Testing
Prior to serving in the California State Assembly, Logue served on the Yuba County Board of Supervisors. While serving as a Member of the Board of Supervisors, Logue worked to bring new businesses and manufacturers to the North State, growing the economy and creating jobs. Logue also worked to change the culture of local government to make it more responsive and business friendly. As a result of his efforts, Dan was voted the best political leader in the region by readers of the Appeal Democrat.
“As a small business owner for 30 years, I understand the challenges that working families are facing in California and I think about them every day,” stated Logue. “I am committed to doing everything I can to fight to restore opportunity, hope and economic prosperity to California.”
