Northstate Assemblyman Brian Dahle has been chosen by his colleagues as the next assembly republican leader. The party caucus unanimously elected Dahle Thursday and the position becomes effective September 15th. Dahle is a Lassen County seed farmer who was first elected to the assembly in 2012. He’s earned a reputation among his fellow legislators as a skilled negotiator who knows how to successfully compromise with the majority democrats in order to get things done for rural Californians. Prior to his service in the assembly the Bieber resident was a Lassen County Supervisor for 16 years. Dahle will be a guest on KQMS Monday morning.
