Tateishi earns Farm Bureau endorsement for state Assembly
» October 9, 2012 «
A longstanding community leader who will work to improve the California business climate, Peter Tateishi, has earned the endorsement of the California Farm Bureau Federation in his campaign for state Assembly. Tateishi, R-Carmichael, seeks election in the newly created 8th Assembly District, including portions of Sacramento County.
"As someone who grew up in the district, Peter Tateishi has deep ties to the area and will work to ensure residents in his district succeed, including family farmers and ranchers," California Farm Bureau President Paul Wenger said. "Peter understands that agriculture is an important part of the economy within his district, and he has won the support of the Sacramento County Farm Bureau."
Tateishi also has experience as chief of staff for Rep. Dan Lungren, R-Gold River. He plans to revive the California economy by supporting tax incentives for small businesses that hire new employees and by reducing regulatory burdens on businesses.
"Family farms and other small businesses often struggle with the burden of regulations, and we appreciate Peter Tateishi's commitment to work across party lines to achieve common-sense reforms," Wenger said. "With his congressional staff experience and cooperative approach, Peter will be an effective representative for his constituents."
The California Farm Bureau Federation works to protect family farms and ranches on behalf of more than 74,000 members statewide and as part of a nationwide network of more than 6.2 million Farm Bureau members.
