Candidate for
United States Representative; District 1

This is a copy of information submitted to elections officials by the candidate

Doug LaMalfa

Family Farmer/Member, United States House of Representatives

As a family farmer and businessman, I find that we spend more and more time fighting overreaching regulations and bigger government. That's part of what spurred me to run for Congress two years ago; we need to fight back.

I am working hard to do just that, to bring North State values and common sense to Washington D.C.

As your representative, I have passed legislation in the House of Representatives to protect north state water and build new water storage, including Sites Reservoir. This project means jobs and more water for our district.

I authored and passed legislation in the House of Representatives to protect 47 million Americans from electricity rate hikes caused by over-regulation.

As well, I helped to permanently reduce federal spending by $115 billion since I was first sworn in.

I believe in limited government and will continue to work to repeal Obamacare and reign in its IRS bureaucracy. I support actually completing the Keystone Oil Pipeline and developing more of our North American energy resources, which results in much needed energy independence.

Government cannot and should not do everything. Big government is a problem, it's the people that innovate the solutions.

I'd be honored to receive your vote. Please visit www.DougLaMalfa.com.
