REDDING, CA – JANUARY 21 – Dr. Paul Dhanuka, a top physician in Redding and independent candidate for California Assembly, District 1, announced a massive endorsement today from Sierra County Supervisor Jim Beard.

Dr. Dhanuka is running as a No Party Preference candidate in an effort to unite local communities and to be beholden to only voters. Dr. Dhanuka’s top priorities will be ending homelessness, protecting against wildfires and bringing jobs and economic opportunity back to Northern California, as well as reducing high healthcare costs and lack of access to health care--two issues crippling rural California.

“Rural California has been let down time and again by slick-talking politicians in Sacramento,” said Beard. "Finally, we have someone running who not only understands the issues, but whose only allegiance is to the voters, not some political party."

Dr. Dhanuka responded: "I am honored to be supported by a diligent and knowledgeable public servant like Supervisor Beard. I look forward to working with him and the other public servants of the Northstate to improve the lives of everyone living in Rural California."
