My Top 3 Priorities

  • Jobs! My focus is to revive the economy of the North State and bring jobs and opportunity.
  • Build Infrastructure: I support building additional water Storage projects such as Sites Reservoir and additional highway construction. I also support bringing better broadband access to the north State so we can connect and compete.
  • Reduce government debt: We are nearly $20 trillion in debt. The government must reduce spending and focus on it's Constitutionally defined priorities such as defense and infrastructure. I oppose tax increases.

Doug La Malfa
United States Representative, 1st Congressional District
Party Preference: Republican

America’s middle income families, workers and small businesses are struggling to make a better life. Meanwhile, our nation faces serious threats from terrorism. The values I learned growing up on the family farm are needed in Washington. I’m working hard to bring those North State values to Congress.

As your representative, I have: Passed legislation in the House of Representatives to protect north state water rights and build new water storage, including Sites Reservoir. This project means jobs and water for Northern California. Voted for significant tax reductions for Families, Small Businesses & Farms. I’m honored to be endorsed by the Howard Jarvis Taxpayer’s Association. Worked to reduce debt and waste and bring balance to the federal budget. Voted to strengthen our military, increase America’s national security and help our veterans get the care they deserve. Fought to repeal Obamacare and reign in out of control federal bureaucrats such as the EPA and IRS while stopping tax-hikes on gas and families. Wrote legislation to properly designate the Tule Lake internment camp a National Historic Site. Passed a law to transfer surplus government land to a productive community use.

Government cannot and should not do everything and is a big part of the problem. Certainly, more government is not the solution. I'd be honored to receive your vote. Thank you. Please visit or call me at 530-712-3675.
