North State Forestry Leader Bill Dennison Endorses Doug LaMalfa for State Senate


NorCal leader and long time advocate for wise forest management, retired Supervisor from Plumas County. 

REDDING – Longtime north state forestry veteran and former Plumas County Supervisor Bill Dennison has announced his support for Doug LaMalfa in the upcoming campaign for State Senate.

“As an Assemblyman, Doug LaMalfa has proven that he will protect our state and U.S. Constitutions and will work towards a healthy business climate in California,” said Dennison.

The well-respected forester and grassroots community leader Dennison formerly served as President and CEO of the California Forestry Association for 14 years before semi-retiring to Chester and serving the people of Plumas County for three terms on the Board of Supervisors. A national advocate for rural and forest counties, he helped organize the National Forest Counties and Schools Coalition. He also served as the Executive Director of William Jessup University’s Pacific Forest Institute and the Sierra Cascade Logging Conference.

He added, “As a farmer, he has a commitment to supporting the wise use of our natural resources. He had a proven track record of listening to and acting on behalf of his constituents and I’m sure he will serve an even greater role as our California State Senator.

LaMalfa thanked Dennison noting, “I’m thankful to have earned the support of Bill Dennison, who has been a tireless advocate for the wise stewardship of our natural resources over a lifetime of work and service. I look forward to continuing to work with Bill as we seek to improve California’s forest management policies.”

The 4th Senate District spans much of rural northern California.  LaMalfa represented much of the district when he served in the Assembly and is well known throughout the area.  Doug LaMalfa is a fourth generation rice farmer and business owner who represented the 2nd Assembly District from 2002 through 2008.
