Farm Bureau endorses Guy Houston for Assembly re-election
» October 5, 2006 «
A two-term Assembly member with a proven track record as a fiscal conservative, Guy Houston, has won endorsement for re-election from the California Farm Bureau Federation. Houston, R-San Ramon, seeks a third term representing the 15th Assembly District, which consists of portions of Alameda, Contra Costa, Sacramento and San Joaquin counties.
"Guy Houston has been an active, effective representative for his district and for family farmers and ranchers throughout California," California Farm Bureau President Doug Mosebar said. "He understands that improving the business climate will help farms and ranchers remain sustainable."
Mosebar noted that Houston had posted a perfect score on the 2005 Family Farm Scorecard, which measured legislators' voting records on key bills affecting farmers and ranchers.
"Guy has been a key ally of Governor Schwarzenegger as he seeks to improve the business of government," Mosebar said. "During his third term, he will continue to insure that state government delivers services efficiently, without the need for new taxes."
A former mayor of Dublin, Houston brought fiscally conservative solutions to city government before winning election to the Assembly in 2002. The four counties in his district generate more than $2.2 billion in sales of crops and commodities each year.
The California Farm Bureau Federation, the state's largest farm organization, works to protect family farms and ranches on behalf of more than 88,000 members.
