Meagher, LaMalfa win endorsements

The National Tax Limitation Committee announced its endorsement of Dai Meagher for Nevada County Treasurer.

Based in Roseville, the committee has represented the interests of Northern California taxpayers since 1975.

Meager would “be a strong voice for fiscal responsibility,” said committee President Lewis K. Uhler. “I commend Dai’s willingness to sign a written pledge opposing higher taxes. That’s the kind of real leadership taxpayers need in county government.”

Doug LaMalfa

California Farm Bureau Federation has endorsed Doug LaMalfa for California Senate District 4.

A fourth-generation rice farmer from Richvale, LaMalfa served three terms in the state Assembly, where he compiled a strong voting record on behalf of family farmers and ranchers, bureau officials said.

“He makes the future of agriculture a top priority,” California Farm Bureau President Paul Wenger said. “As a family farmer … he recognizes the urgent need to improve the state’s business climate and protect its rural communities.”

LaMalfa consistently voted in the Legislature to support private property rights and enhance California water supplies, Wenger added.

The seat represents Nevada County and all or part of Butte, Colusa, Del Norte, Glenn, Placer, Shasta, Siskiyou, Sutter, Tehama, Trinity and Yuba counties.
