FROM THE CAMPAIGN OFFICE OF BILL DODD:
Napa County Supervisor and 4th Assembly District candidate Bill Dodd last week announced that long-time Congressman Mike Thompson (D-St. Helena) has endorsed his bid for State Assembly.
“Working closely with Bill Dodd for the past 15 years to solve big, difficult issues facing our community, I have repeatedly seen Bill rise to the occasion under difficult circumstances to deliver for our community,” said Congressman Thompson.
“Along with his experience in business and public service, his tenacity, respect for other viewpoints, work ethic and ability to draw out the best in other people make him the most qualified and prepared candidate to represent us in the State Assembly.
“In addition to Bill and I sharing a lot of the same values and political philosophies, Bill is someone I can count on, someone whose handshake still means something,” Congressman Thompson continued. “I am proud to endorse him.”
“Mike and his ability to work with everyone, his principled leadership, and passion for serving others has been the model for me as a public servant,” said Dodd. “I am deeply honored to have his support.”
Congressman Mike Thompson represents California’s 5th Congressional District and has served in the Congress since 1998. Thompson is a small vineyard owner, served our country in Vietnam, and was elected to the state Senate in 1990.
Dodd is a Democrat from Napa County. After a successful 25-year business career, he has served four terms on the Napa County Board of Supervisors. The 4th Assembly District includes all of Napa and Lake Counties, and portions of Colusa, Solano, Sonoma and Yolo Counties.
