Logue, Gaines to host Yreka jobs hearing

Two state lawmakers are apparently set to send a message to Siskiyou County voters that they won't lose effective representation when Assemblyman Jim Nielsen and Sen. Doug LaMalfa are redistricted away from their area next year.

From Assemblyman Dan Logue:
North State Assemblyman Dan Logue today announced that LA Fox News 11 Investigative Reporter Heidi Cuda will be covering his upcoming “Jobs & Economic Development Hearing” scheduled for Monday, December 12th at 10:00 am. The hearing will take place at the Yreka Community Theater, 810 N. Oregon St. in Yreka. Assemblyman Logue will be joined by North State Senator Ted Gaines, along with several local elected officials as part of a panel that will hear from local business owners about the difficulties they are facing.

Fox News 11 Cuda Investigative Reporter Heidi Cuda, representing the 2nd largest media market in the nation, has spearheaded a special news series entitled "Saving the California Dream" which looks at what's working in our state economy and what's not and why businesses are leaving in record numbers. Cuda will travel from LA to Yreka to participate and to examine why some are saying state and federal agencies have gone out of their way to shut down North State farms, water and the timber industry.

"This is very significant that Fox News is willing to come all the way to Yreka to hear firsthand from North State business owners, farmers and ranchers about the regulatory challenges they face as they struggle to keep their doors open during this economic downturn," stated Logue. "It is not very often that we are able to tell our story to a statewide audience and I think it is critical that folks from throughout California, even Los Angeles hear for themselves, the incredible hardships that out-of-control regulatory agencies are putting on our North State farming, timber and other industries."

"They are putting entire sectors out of business and the fact is, when they do it to California's rural regions, it effects Los Angeles and the rest of California."

Logue has held similar hearings throughout California, including recently in Redding, as well as in the states of Nevada and Texas bringing this critical issue to the forefront of the discussion in California.

“I am honored to work with business leaders in Siskiyou County,” said Logue. "I look forward to hearing how we can help make California a better place to do business.”

Assemblyman Logue represents the 3rd Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes the communities of Butte, Lassen, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Sierra and Yuba.

I just hope Fox 11 keeps in mind that Logue and Gaines are candidates in an election and there are other hopefuls running.
