Elizabeth Emken, middle, speaks with Ann Ohlund (right) and Tammy Pecis (left) during one of her three Meet & Greets in Siskiyou County. 

California Senator Doug LaMalfa is no stranger to Siskiyou County. He and his staff have traveled to Siskiyou many time during the past two years, Doug has served as our representative.

But rarely does a California candidate for the U.S. Senate venture so far north, but Republican candidate Elizabeth Emken did on Oct. 2, 2012.

Doug LaMalfa, who is now running for the U.S. House of Representatives, accompanied Elizabeth Emken to Siskiyou, where they were treated to a helicopter ride over the Klamath dams. Yes, the well-maintained and functioning hydro-electric dams the majority of Siskiyou citizens are trying to save. Greenies and corrupt federal and state agencies want the dams out, without even following their own protocol and regulations (EIS-EIR and CEQA have not been followed.)

Residents on COPCO lake (one of the dams slated for the ridiculous removal creates the lake) held a luncheon for Candidate Emken, where she learned first-hand the truths about NO honest government over-sight in Siskiyou.

At 5 p.m. and again at 7 p.m. Doug LaMalfa spoke and introduced Elizabeth Emken to a crowd of up to 50 enthusiastic folks.

Elizabeth Emken is a bright star ready to fly. She is down-to-earth and has developed skills and talents needed to SAVE America.

Together, Doug LaMalfa as our Congressman and Elizabeth Emken as our U.S. Senator they will be a powerful force for a GOOD change in government.

Please join me in voting for Doug LaMalfa and Elizabeth Emken.

Update – Yes, CA. AB 2179 was defeated

CA Sen Doug LaMalfa, Dept. Fish & Game

LaMalfa Applauds Defeat of Fish and Game Administrative Fine Measure

Bipartisan Group of  Senate Legislators Defeats AB 2179

 (SACRAMENTO) – Today, Assembly Bill (AB) 2179 was defeated on the Senate Floor after a robust debate.  AB 2179 would authorize the Department of Fish and Game (Department) to impose administrative penalties of up to $15,000 for violations of the Fish and Game Code.  The Department now has the ability to self-determine violations, the level of the fine, and the appeals process.

“This is especially disturbing given the ravenous appetite of this state for taxpayer dollars,” commented LaMalfa. “AB 2179 would empower the Department to become the judge, jury and executioner on Fish and Game violations and in a time when farmers and ranchers are struggling, the Legislature is attempting to make it more difficult to operate,”

“Farmers and ranchers in the North State have bent over backwards to accommodate the environmental concerns of the Department,” commented LaMalfa.  “Unfortunately, the goal posts are moved at every turn and my constituents are unable to comply.”

 

Although AB 2179 was defeated with only 11 votes supporting and 23 votes opposing, it is eligible for reconsideration in the Senate tomorrow

 

“With the legislative session ending at midnight tomorrow, my hope is that Legislators will continue to realize the long-term consequences of this bill on California and defeat it one final time,” said LaMalfa.

Senator Doug LaMalfa is a lifelong farmer representing the fourth Senate District including Shasta, Tehama, Butte, Colusa, Glenn, Siskiyou, Sutter, Del Norte, Placer, Trinity, Yuba and Nevada counties.

LaMalfa resigns Senate seat, says move will save taxpayers $2 million in election costs

CA Sen Doug LaMalfa

He says move will save $2M

    • By Sean Longoria

      Posted September 1, 2012 at 12:12 a.m.

    • Redding.com

State Sen. Doug LaMalfa on Friday announced his resignation from the California Legislature, a move he said will save taxpayers at least $2 million by consolidating the November general election with a special primary election to fill his seat.

LaMalfa is running for the seat of
Congressman Wally Herger, R-Chico, who’s retiring after his current term ends. The senator’s resignation coincided with the last day of the 2012 legislative session for the state Senate.

“With the 2012 session now over, most of the state Senate’s business for the year is done,” LaMalfa said in a statement issued Friday afternoon by his office.

Breaking News* – Doug LaMalfa resigns from State Senate, effective at the end of session!

CA Sen Doug LaMalfa

Posted by at 2:11 pm on Aug 31, 2012

I just heard from longtime FlashReport friend (and blogger) State Senator Doug La Malfa. He wanted to let FlashReport readers know to not be alarmed at the news that this fine conservative has resigned, effective at the end of the legislative session (sometime in the wee hours tomorrow morning, no doubt). For those following North State politics, La Malfa is now the Republican nominee for Congress in the sprawling First Congressional seat, which is considered a “safe” seat for the GOP. The makeup of that seat is largely that of one currently occupied by retiring conservative Congressman Wally Herger.

State Senator and Congressional candidate Doug La Malfa

“I’ve thrown my hat over the fence and am taking nothing for granted in my campaign for Congress, but I do not feel it would be right to wait until the end of the year to resign from the Senate. Resigning now gives the Governor the ability to consolidate elections, saving local counties and taxpayers at least $2 million.”

As mentioned by La Malfa, by resigning from the State Senate now, it allows the Governor to consolidate the special election to fill the State Senate race with the November election, eliminating the additional costs of at least one special election (and possibly eliminating all of the costs if a candidate gets over 50% of the vote in the special, eliminating the need for a runoff). Senator La Malfa spoke today with Governor Brown, who has said that he will in fact consolidate the special election.

“I met with the Governor and he told me he will move quickly to consolidate the elections. Resigning now will ensure that the North State is not left without a representative when the legislature reconvenes.  It is the best decision I can make to protect the taxpayers and ensure the North State has a voice in the Senate.”

It is certainly noble of Senator La Malfa to forgo several months of pay and the other perks that come with being a Senator between now and mid-January when he likely will be sworn-in as a member of Congress. But, of course, this isn’t all about doing the right thing. Politics plays heavily into this decision. La Malfa’s election to Congress sets up a major North State battle for the State Senate between long-time rivals Assemblyman Jim Nielsen and Assemblyman Dan Logue, both of whom represent large portions of the La Malfa Senate Seat. La Malfa has already endorsed Nielsen’s bid to succeed him. Nielsen decided not to seek re-election to the Assembly, “to focus his political attention on running for the State Senate in an anticipating Spring special election.” So no doubt this “set the table” for Nielsen to immediately start running in what would now be a November special election.

While Dan Logue is currently running for re-election to the Assembly, he would also be able to concurrently run in the special election for the State Senate on the same ballot. There is recent North State history of this being done, and successfully. Then Assemblyman Ted Gaines ran in a special election for the State Senate (after the unfortunate passing of Dave Cox) in a special election that was consolidated with his re-election to the Assembly.

There is no doubt that the politics of the North State continues to be a fascinating spectator sport for most, and to those who live there, they may need a power-point presentation to understand all of the rearranging of the deck chairs up there.

We’ve received a column on this decision by Senator La Malfa that has been authored by FR friend Lew Uhler, President of the National Tax Limitation Committee, that he asked that we share with you. You can read it here. (Uhler has endorsed Jim Nielsen’s candidacy for the State Senate, so bear that in mind.)

LaMalfa Urges Further Hearings on Parks Vacation Payouts, Hidden $54 Million

CA Sen Doug LaMalfa

Parks Department Refuses to Identify Account Used for Illegal Vacation Payoffs

 (SACRAMENTO) – Senator Doug LaMalfa (R – Richvale) today urged additional oversight hearings on the Department of Parks and Recreation’s (Department) operations after officials avoided questions during a meeting of the Senate Budget & Fiscal Oversight Committee. The Senator was particularly disappointed that the Department would not identify the account used to fund vacation payouts to workers. The account name was redacted in an internal report released by the Department, possibly in violation of the Public Records Act.

“The administration’s refusal to name the account used for the illegal vacation payouts prevents us from verifying that there has not been more abuse,” said LaMalfa. “At this point, assurances that the administration has a handle on these funds are ringing hollow. We need to see how every dollar in that account has been spent, and only then will we know the extent of the corruption.”

LaMalfa and other senators held the hearing in the hope that Department officials would be able to describe how $54 million was hidden while the Governor threatened to close 70 parks and over $260,000 was spent cashing out employee vacation time. However, the committee did not find the cooperation it hoped for, instead receiving evasive and incomplete answers from Department and administration officials.

“It’s difficult to get answers when the administration and Democrat-controlled committee fail to compel witnesses to appear. Until those involved with these payoffs are required to testify under oath, we’ll never know what truly happened,” the Senator added. “Unfortunately, today’s hearing seemed aimed more at public relations than getting to the bottom of these ongoing problems.”

Senator Doug LaMalfa is a lifelong farmer representing the fourth Senate District including Shasta, Tehama, Butte, Colusa, Glenn, Siskiyou, Sutter, Del Norte, Placer, Trinity, Yuba and Nevada counties.

LaMalfa Rural Sheriff Legislation Signed by Governor

CA Sen Doug LaMalfa, Sheriffs

SB 1254 Addresses Realignment Problems

July 10, 2012 

(SACRAMENTO) – Senator Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) today announced that legislation he authored to help the Trinity and Yuba County Sheriffs deal with realignment was signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown. Sponsored by the California State Sheriffs Association, Senate Bill 1254 grants more flexible custodial authority to the two sheriff’s departments in an effort to help them cope with the effects of realignment.

“We need to give sheriffs every tool available to deal with the massive influx of state prisoners realignment will force on counties,” said LaMalfa. “Giving sheriff’s deputies more flexibility in custodial situations increases their ability to transport, guard and transfer inmates. While I’ve opposed this dangerous course of action from the start, I’ll do everything I can to help our rural sheriffs.”

The so-called public safety realignment plan passed by Sacramento Democrats last year is already resulting in the transfer of thousands of unrehabilitated state prisoners to county jails. At the same time, Democrat lawmakers recently eliminated billions in existing prison construction funds that could have eased overcrowding. LaMalfa’s bill passed with unanimous support in both houses of the Legislature and was signed by the Governor on July 9, 2012.

LaMalfa Comments on Resignation of Parks Director

CA Sen Doug LaMalfa

State Parks concealed millions in surplus funds while attempting to close parks

 

(SACRAMENTO) – Today, Senator LaMalfa issued a statement regarding the resignation of California Department of Parks and Recreation Director Ruth Coleman amid allegations that the Department has concealed $54 million in surplus funds.

“Though I am happy to discover there is money to keep California’s parks open, I am disappointed in the State Parks Director and her staff for concealing money from California’s taxpayers while calling for the closure of 70 state parks,” commented LaMalfa.

Director Coleman resigned, effective immediately, and a senior staff member was fired when it was discovered there is as much as $33 million in the Off Highway Vehicle Fund and $20 million in the Parks and Recreation Fund.

“Given the State Legislature’s tendencies to steal money from special funds, I understand the Department’s wishes to conceal millions of dollars from the Legislature,” stated LaMalfa.  “However, it is still highly inappropriate.”

“I now expect this Legislature to ensure the money is spent on only the designated issues highlighted for each of these funds and not stolen to fund a completely unrelated program,” continued LaMalfa.  “This is our chance to show the public we can do what is right and continue to make all parks available to taxpayers.”

Senator Doug LaMalfa is a lifelong farmer representing the fourth Senate District including Shasta, Tehama, Butte, Colusa, Glenn, Siskiyou, Sutter, Del Norte, Placer, Trinity, Yuba and Nevada counties.
