Senator Brian Dahle is a voice for public safety, lowering taxes, and reducing homelessness. He opposes onerous government regulations that are driving up the cost of living forcing many to leave California and businesses to shutter their doors.
A longtime advocate of building a better business climate in California, Brian Dahle was the California Chamber of Commerce’s top-rated senator for pro-business votes in 2021 and has a 100 percent rating from the National Federation of Independent Business.
He was chosen by his peers in 2017 to be the Assembly Republican Leader, leading the caucus until after the 2018 elections, when he stepped down as leader to run in a special election to fill a vacant seat in the 1st Senate District.
Through his decade in the Legislature, he has worked to pursue environmental health to keep communities safe from devastating wildfires, passing multiple bills to modernize outdated laws and streamline regulations for landowners.
He has worked on a bipartisan basis to expand broadband internet access in underserved communities, better protect Californians’ digital privacy, and stop the gouging of hospital patients with surprise out-of-network bills.
He served on the Subcommittee on Sexual Harassment Prevention and Response, reforming the Legislature itself so members weren’t protected from consequences of their own abusive behavior.
Before winning the election to the Legislature in 2012, he served his community for four terms on the Lassen County Board of Supervisors. He was especially proud of leaving the county debt-free with its pensions fully funded.
He continues to operate his family’s farm and seed business back home in Bieber, with his wife, Megan Dahle, and their three children — Chase, Reagan, and Roslyn

Candidate for U.S. House of Representatives, District 2
As the parents of 4 daughters, 2 granddaughters and a grandson, my wife Bonnie and I feel that our family values are not currently being represented by our District 2 U.S. Congressman.
Having a Bachelor Degree in Business from UOP, a Masters of Divinity Degree from IWU, as well as being an Indiana Wesleyan Seminary graduate and an Ordained Reverend, I feel I have been uniquely prepared to represent our district with core Biblical principles and sound business decisions.
As a public servant, I have served on the City of Ferndale Design Review Committee, the Planning Commission, as an elected City Councilman, an educator at local drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs as well as various other committees. I feel that I have a finger on the pulse of our district with regards to our major issues like homelessness, economics, wildfires, drought, Covid-19, gas prices, taxes, and infrastructure.
Candidate for US House of Representatives, District 8
A little about me. I am a small business owner, former US Department of Agriculture employee and a Retired US Army Major, having served 26 years. While serving in the US Army, I was stationed in Illinois, South Korea and Washington DC. My last military duty station was in Fairfield, California. Retiring in 2014, my wife and I liked California so much that we decided to stay. I am a husband, brother and uncle to many nieces and nephews. One is currently serving in the US Marine Corps.
Like you, I have watched career politicians, in Washington DC and in California, work just to keep their jobs, negatively impacting the way adults and children view the world. At the same time they ignore the needs of the community. If we keep voting for the same Legislators we will keep losing!
While serving in the US Army, I was fortunate enough to be stationed at the Pentagon with the highest levels of the military. I walked the halls of the Pentagon and Capitol Hill to coordinate with various staff and agencies, each with their own flavor, throughout Washington DC. I became savvy in the ways these various types of people conducted their duties. I learned the language of Washington and how to successfully accomplish what needed to be done. So I am again choosing to serve and make a difference for California and our country as a candidate for California’s 8th Congressional District.

Candidate for US House of Representatives, District 32
Lucie Volotzky is known and respected for being a resilient mover and shaker—a dedicated wife and mother of four, a seasoned businesswoman and active community leader with a zest for life and a desire to improve people’s lives. Now she intends to shake up Capitol Hill as a determined, commonsense congresswoman who will put America first and stand strong to defeat the radical progressive agenda hijacking our country. But, first, she must unseat career Democrat politician, Brad Sherman, who has been compromising America’s best interests for 25 years. Volotzky is very qualified to be the wise and courageous leader we need in Washington, D.C. She and her husband have been owners of retail businesses for over 35 years in the Los Angeles area. The obstacles to operating small businesses under California’s high taxes, overregulation, the diminishing economy, and the unfair China trade deals, have been challenging—and have prepared her well to represent District 32 in Congress. She understands the state, national and global issues that have put America in crisis and are determined to protect our freedoms and our way of life. Volotzky has a long record of serving her community and has held many positions of leadership. Born in Montreal, Volotzky speaks with a French-Canadian accent and has plenty to say. She is running on a platform of “Faith, Family, and Freedom.” She will stand against the deceitful Green New Deal, the attacks on fossil fuels, the open border, illegal immigration, human trafficking and drugs, rising crime, defunding of the police, the unconstitutional COVID-19 closures and mandates, the “woke” sexualized school system, a weakened military, the censoring of conservative speech, and foreign companies buying U.S. land. Volotzky says there are many issues tearing down our country, and destroying the economic and moral fabric of America we know and love. She is anxious to tackle each one of these problems with insight, knowledge, common sense, courage, and respect for our Constitution. She is a proven leader, not a career politician. “We’re losing our freedoms and our children! Without freedom, we have nothing. Defending freedom is my number one priority!”
Candidate for US House of Representatives, District 38
I am running for Congress because I believe that I was called to serve. As a Congressional member, I promise to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. With my 9 years of experience serving in local government, as well as my 30 years of experience managing a business, I believe that I am the best person to improve our congressional district.
In 2012, I was elected to serve as a member of the Walnut City Council. I was then re-elected in 2016 and 2020. In 2016-2017, I served as the Mayor and twice as the Mayor Pro Tempore. Before joining the City Council, I was the President of the Chinese American Association of Walnut, bringing attention to the Asian community and providing support for those in need. During my service on the Council, the City has maintained over 100% of reserves, was ranked the 17th safest city in California by Patch in 2017, and was voted 49th as the best city to live in by Money Magazine in 2013. While I cannot completely accredit these accomplishments to myself, we were able to build up this beautiful City due to the relationship between the City, residents, and public agencies.
Over the course of the last decade, I have dedicated my life to helping others through volunteer work. While volunteering at local churches and non-profit organizations, I have gained a passion for working with others and serving my community. During the Covid-19 pandemic, I was blessed with the opportunity to distribute food, supplies, and face masks to thousands of people, including seniors in the housing communities. As a mental health advocate, I have teamed up with a few of my friends to support those who have struggled with substance abuse. Through various treatment centers, we have been able to provide many resources to help victims get their lives back on track. As a frequent blood donor at the Red Cross and Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles, I have learned to become more compassionate for others and to dedicate my life to serving the people.
Since the passing of my wife in 2017, I have been raising two beautiful girls who I am extremely proud of. Through these experiences, I was able to find my true meaning and purpose. I know that I need to use my energy, talents, and efforts to serve our country.
While we all may share different political, religious, or social views, we all have a common interest. Our goal is to provide safe neighborhoods, good jobs, and a place to comfortably grow old and raise our kids. We need leaders with proven results. Through my persistence and background, I believe that I am the best person to represent our district.

Candidate for CA State Senate, District 14
Born in Israel, Amnon Shor immigrated to the United States in 1980 following the woman he fell in love with. Shortly after, he married his wife Lynette, and together they have three children and seven grandchildren. They decided to settle in California and call it home. Shor began working in the jewelry business, owning his own wholesale and retail operations. In 1986 the family moved to Fresno, to pursue a passion for Arabian horses and bought a ranch for that purpose in the beautiful Central Valley.
Throughout his life, Shor was instilled with the conservative values that we all cherish. At an early age, he learned what it means to serve others and to serve a greater purpose. Shor served in the Israeli Defense Forces, where he defended his country during the 1973 Yom Kippur War.
In the early 90s, Shor went back to school to further his education in religious study, starting a new path by founding a congregation in 2004. He has served as the senior Rabbi until the present. He has, and continues to travel the world helping to advise religious institutions in other countries, and helping individuals in authoritarian countries to find religious freedom and practice their faith freely. Shor’s experiences have led him to an incredible appreciation of this country and our freedoms. He came to the United States with a dream, to raise a family, start his own business, pursue his faith, and help others pursue theirs.
Following this journey, he has lived in the Central Valley for decades. During this time, he has watched our great state deteriorate before our very eyes. From observing our freedoms diminish, our highways and freeways fall into disrepair, the uncontrolled influx of illegal immigration, and rampant crime. Today, California appears less and less like the ideal, prosperous state of its early years here. However, Shor believes that we can get our state back on the right track. He has always fought for what he believes in – from serving his home country of Israel in the Special Forces to fighting to give religious freedom to those in need across the globe. Now, he is ready to step up again and fight for the values and needs of the Central Valley.
Candidate for CA State Senate, District 22
I was born and raised in California. I’ve lived here my entire life, so I’ve seen first-hand how politicians have made this state a harder place to live. Homelessness has gotten consistently worse, crime has risen dramatically, and California has some of the most repressive covid rules in the country.
On top of that, the prices of homes have risen to a level that makes it difficult for many people to afford a home, let alone, rent.
It is because of those factors, that a mass exodus of Californians are leaving to other states that offer more personal liberties and higher quality of life. Instead of leaving with them, I have vowed to stay in this state to help be part of the solution to make California a great place to live in again.
I am currently happily serving LA County as a deputy sheriff, but in my current capacity as a law enforcement officer, my ability to affect positive change only goes so far. An accumulation
of events over the years, particularly the past two years, has motivated me to run for office. I do so not because I want to be a politician, but because I refuse to sit back and allow the degradation of our democracy and God-given freedoms to continue any longer: I want to affect change to make this state a better place to live. I don’t work with special interest groups that have me on their payroll and tell me what to do. I do not fraternize with lobbyists. I do not have million-dollar business deals with companies with ties to China. I am a lifelong California resident, an American, a regular person like all of you, who is tired of being strong-armed by an increasingly authoritarian government. I am just one person, but with all of your support, we will be a force of good to be reckoned with.
Together, we can make our neighborhoods, our cities, our counties, our state, and our country, a free and wonderful place for us to be in and for our children’s future. We should not be divided based on political party preference. We are all one people, interconnected, living here on this Earth together, at this specific time in history.
Let us come together and turn things around.
Candidate for CA State Senate, District 30
I’ve spent my whole life in and around the district I am running for. Born in La Mirada, raised in Whittier and Norwalk, and attended high school in Santa Fe Springs. When I married my wife in 2000, we moved to La Habra and raised our 3 kids there for 18 years before moving to our current home in Whittier 3 years ago.
I am a man of faith. I trust God for all things, and I do my best to follow Him. This leads me to desire to care for others in my community. I have been involved in many community service efforts throughout the years, mostly through the church I attended. I participated in the relief efforts in Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina to serve the local community in Bay St. Louis. I’ve encouraged my employees and brought a dozen of them with us to help stuff backpacks for the needy at Giving Children Hope in Fullerton, CA over the years. My wife and I have assisted in different food and clothing ministries for the poor and homeless.
I believe serving others is not only encouraged by our Lord, but it also gives hope to the person in need, and is such an important way to give back to our society.
I’ve been a business owner in the plumbing industry for over 20 years, serving our communities, my customers, and my employees. My goal when going into business was to offer top quality plumbing services at fair prices, and to put the overpriced plumbers out of business. Over the years, I have trained many plumbers. For the ones that serve the customers the same way I do, I help them get their own plumbing license, and help them start their business. By doing this, I lose my best plumbers, but when they start their business in another area, and do the same thing in a new community, providing top quality plumbing services at fair prices, everybody wins. Having an attitude of serving others has helped me to be successful as a business owner and has enabled me to help many others learn this same attitude in business.
I’ve also worked in the corporate world as an operations manager. It was my responsibility to take a bankrupt $180 mil / year distribution company and make the operations profitable again. I was able to use my leadership and teaching skills, data collection and analysis skills, and my ability to listen and work with others to find the best solutions to any given problem. Solving complex issues requires listening to the people to understand their problems. I analyzed each department, worked with the area managers, supervisors, and staff to determine solutions, and then implemented the new solutions together with the team in each department. The result of my efforts was a successful sale/merger deal after we had turned the company around.
Both as a business owner and a corporate manager it is necessary to work hard and find solutions to be successful. I will work hard for the people, to serve them well, to represent them well, and to do my best to help find solutions. I will be willing to work with other lawmakers for the benefit of people and stand against legislations that promote special interests.
Jesus calls us to follow His example of being a servant leader. I will do my best to follow that example. I would appreciate your support in this election. I would also ask that you would seek out other servant leaders to elect this season. It’s time to give the government back to the people.
Candidate for CA State Senate, District 40

Seeing the challenges the faith community experienced with California’s bureaucracy, Brian transitioned into commercial real estate, where he assisted churches with navigating through land-use issues.
Brian met his wife Heather while working at the local pizza franchise. They have been married for 29 years and currently live in Santee with their two Rhodesian Ridgeback dogs Cash and Koda. Brian and Heather enjoy spending time with their three adult children, Christopher, Matthew, Melina, and her husband, Justin.

I immigrated to America at age 8 and grew up in Los Angeles. My elementary school was over 90% Latino. Spanish became my second language and I continued studying Spanish until College. This background has helped me connect with our diverse community.
My parents were typical first generation Korean immigrants who worked hard and struggled to achieve the American Dream. I learned sacrifice, hard work, and the importance of faith from them. I believe these have been the cornerstones of my life, and what I will bring to serve our community in the Assembly.
I was a tomboy growing up! I enjoyed sports, and was on the Varsity Volleyball team in high school. I believe we need our children to be well-rounded, and that our education system should allow students to enjoy both academic and extra-curricular activities.
Extended families are the core of our community. The help provide financial and emotional support that we need in a hectic society. I have been married for 31 years and have four daughters. My husband is a pastor, who retired from being the senior Pastor of New Life Mission Church in Buena Park. We pastored two ministries together, and those were some of the best years of my life.
I was elected to ABCUSD School Board in 2013. I have served as board President twice. I’m proud of the academic success that our school board has accomplished, and strongly believe that parents should have more input into how and what their students learn.
As your Assemblywoman I’ll be focused on lowering our cost of living, making our community safe again, and making sure our students get the kind of education they deserve.
My education and career experience include:
- B.A. UC Irvine (Social Ecology with an emphasis on human behavior)
- M.A. Westminster Theological Seminary (emphasis on Counseling)
- ABC Unified School District Board President
- Founder and Director of Gateway Academy since 1994, (College Admission and SAT prep)
- Youth Counselor since 1990 (helped many youths with depression and addiction problem)
- American Red Cross – Founder/Director Gateway Chapter 2007
- American Cancer Society Relay for Life Sponsor since 2008

Laurie, like so many Californians, wasn’t born here. She visited California multiple times as a child, and it was during those trips she knew she wanted to live here as soon as she could. Laurie was born in Wisconsin, where she and her three brothers and one sister were raised by her parents Richard and Lois Davies. Her parents instilled in her the value of hard work and the importance of family. After graduating high school, she worked for a year, and in 1981 after saving enough money to buy a Cutlass Supreme, she moved west to attend Cal State Long Beach.
Upon her arrival, she knew she made the right decision, and this is where she would call home. The values of hard work she learned growing up would serve her well during her college years. While attending school full-time, she worked nights and weekends as a waitress at the Queensway Bay Hilton to pay her way through college.

She partnered with police services to establish programs including Girls Empowerment, Anti-Bully Prevention, and Teen Drivers Safety. She also worked in close collaboration with parents that lost their children to prescription drug abuse. To Laurie, education is everything when it comes to protecting our children and teens.

Corbin earned a master’s degree in Criminal Justice from Xavier University by the young age of 23.
Being the Son of a Naval Officer, Corbin decided to follow in his Father’s footsteps and become a Naval Officer himself after graduating, and now currently works as a civilian contractor in support of the United States Navy.
Due to his father’s military career, Corbin traveled the world growing up, and as a result, developed a powerful love of his country and a unique appreciation for the freedoms and quality of life that Americans enjoy.
Taking nothing for granted and seeing the people’s freedoms and quality of life disintegrate by our corrupt government’s overreach, Corbin made a decision.
That decision was to stop doing nothing and start doing something in order to preserve what we all love and cherish while our country is being split in half.
As a result of that decision, Corbin co-founded We the People Coalition, a non-partisan endeavor designed to unite all American people, Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, Independents and everyone else under the 99% we all have in common instead of the 1% we differ on, which the powers that be want us to focus on.
After fully understanding the damage done to our country by the wealthy elites and corrupt politicians and seeing the people’s liberty and power disappear, Corbin decided he could do even more by running for political office.
Candidate of CA State Assembly, District 35
I am the Family Man. My objective, and overwhelming motivation in this political pursuit, is protecting, preserving and providing for our families.
Currently we are attending Chino Valley Community Church. I am the co-founder of the San Bernardino County Patriots and the co-creator of the Tri-County Sheriff’s Forum.
As a husband and a father with many good friends, I feel truly blessed to have the opportunity to be a Representative for some of the most wonderful people I’ve ever met.
Through the years I have been a coach, a crossing guard for my kids, a Booster President, Ways and Means Chairman and a deacon at my church.
Professionally, I have been a writer, an actor, a director, a producer, an editor and a marketing director.
Additionally, I helped run a small indie music label and managed a rock band from Australia and somewhere in the middle of all that, I helped handle the private label manufacturing for The Power Rangers food products.
Prior to my move to California in 1991, I had a short stint as a Quartermaster Army Officer and then went Individual Ready Reserve after Desert Storm. My family has a long history with the US Army and I thought it would be exciting to try something new…Hollywood. I was not disappointed.
Southern California is where I met my beautiful wife, Nan, and where we’ve raised our two kids.
I understand that to whom much is given, much is required. And from that is born my desire to serve the people and businesses of the 35th Congressional District of California.
This is not about ME, it’s about YOU… my neighbors! At a time of unprecedented assault on our freedoms, our traditions and our Constitution, we need representatives willing to stand in the gap on behalf of the American people.
Our citizens deserve to be treated with dignity, respect and unwavering support. I plan on doing just that!
Candidate of CA State Assembly, District 41
As a native of Massachusetts, I was born and raised with the drive to serve the public and become a police officer.
After graduating from Westfield State College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice, I worked for a local district attorney’s office for several years before finally applying to the storied LAPD.
In 2008, my dream of becoming a police officer, came true. Moving across country and leaving everything and everyone I knew back east, I graduated the Los Angeles Police Department’s academy and hit the streets running. An “Officer of the Year,” and five (5) time recipient of the “Mother’s Against Drunk Driving Award,” I was realizing my lifelong dream. A commended peer officer, whose advice was quite often sought after in matters of Collision Investigation, Drunk Driving, Arrests, Mental Health Intervention Techniques, and Report Writing, I am always striving to be better and assist newer officers… even in personal matters as just a voice of experience, and careful thought .
I am the proud father of two children, with whom I co-parent with my best friend, Tawnya. Being a father is my life’s greatest accomplishment.
After 14 years of service to the citizens of Los Angeles, I was faced with the most difficult decision of my life. The covid pandemic and subsequent civil unrest that followed, had me working the “front lines” for nearly two-years. Undeterred, I, and the thousands, upon thousands, of First Responders, and front line workers, continued our jobs throughout the months of uncertainty.
Once hailed as a hero, officers, firefighters, doctors, and nurses, were being demonized for choosing, and standing up for, our own medical sovereignty.
At great sacrifice to my own career, family, and financial future, I stood fast against the ordinance of the City of Los Angeles and orders of the department, that I love so deeply.
As co-founder of the anti-mandate coalition, “RollCall4freedom,” I took on the daunting task of speaking out against the draconian and totalitarian measures the local and federal governments were taking to silence dissenters.
I was relieved of duty on November 3rd, 2021, had my police powers suspended, and was terminated for standing up for our Constitutional Rights.
Our constitutional rights, our medical sovereignty, our choice, is what has driven me to jump into politics. Leaving a country, a state, where standing up now; fighting back, ensures that our children will still have a country where they, themselves, can still stand.
The new democrat, and their liberal, progressive ideologies, have decimated the once, great Republic of California. For too long, they have held onto power by any means necessary, and it is time to take this state back. Are you any better off now, then you were, two years ago?
Humbly, I ask for your help, your vote, in doing so.
