Senator Jim Nielsen (R-Tehama), who represents the Town of Paradise and the surrounding communities devastated by Camp Fire, congratulated Governor Gavin Newsom in the following statement:
“Congratulations to Governor Gavin Newsom for becoming the 40th Governor of the great State of California.
“The people of Paradise and the North State appreciate your efforts to support the Camp Fire survivors. We look forward to working with you and your administration on recovery efforts to bring back the local economy and infrastructure for residents, and education for the children.
“We welcome you, First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom, and your beautiful children to Sacramento.
“And to our outgoing Governor, I must convey my sincere respect for Jerry Brown. We have served together for many years. He has a heart for public service. Colusa County residents look forward to seeing him and Ann at our community gatherings, and we welcome them with open arms.”
