Small Business Endorses Sen. Brian Dahle for Reelection

Date: September 17, 2020

Northern California farmer scored 100 percent on NFIB voting record

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Sept. 17, 2020—The political action committee for California’s leading small-business association today announced its endorsement of state Sen. Brian Dahle for re-election to his 1st District seat.

“Senator Dahle brings a wealth of experience on issues such as farming and water rights that small businesses don’t get from most other elected legislators, making him unarguably one of the most valuable lawmakers in the California Legislature,” said John Kabateck, California state director for NFIB. “Throughout his entire legislative career, he has been an unwavering champion for small-business owners, of which he is one himself, once again giving him a distinction setting him apart from most of his colleagues in fundamentally understanding that small businesses are not smaller versions of big businesses but often have different difficulties in remaining solvent. The importance of his reelection cannot be overstated.”

The endorsement of Dahle was made by the NFIB CA PAC and based on six votes taken in the first half of the 2019-2020 session. A minimum 70% was needed for endorsement consideration. Dahle had a perfect 100 percent.

Dahle represents all of Alpine, El Dorado, Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou counties and almost all of Placer County.
