Farm Bureau endorses Jack Sieglock for Assembly
» April 29, 2008 «
Business owner and former San Joaquin County supervisor Jack Sieglock has won the California Farm Bureau Federation endorsement for election in the 10th Assembly District. Sieglock seeks the Republican nomination in the district, which serves Amador County and portions of El Dorado, Sacramento and San Joaquin counties.
Sieglock's history of public service includes election to the Lodi City Council, where he served as mayor in 1994 and 1998, and to the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors.
"Throughout his career as a county supervisor, Jack Sieglock worked to conserve farmland and enhance the region's growing reputation as a winegrape region," California Farm Bureau President Doug Mosebar said. "He understands the role government should play in protecting family farms and ranches."
Farmers and ranchers in the four counties that make up the 10th Assembly District sell crops and commodities worth more than $2 billion each year.
"Family farmers and ranchers worry about tax increases and new fees that can make it harder for them to sustain their businesses," Mosebar said. "Jack Sieglock has built a history as a strong fiscal conservative who wants to cut waste and inefficiency in government. The state Assembly will benefit from his budget discipline."
Sieglock seeks to replace Assembly Member Alan Nakanishi, R-Lodi, who has served the maximum three terms in the Assembly and has also endorsed Sieglock.
The California Farm Bureau Federation, the state's largest farm organization, works to protect family farms and ranches on behalf of 91,000 members statewide.
