Indian Valley Record Wednesday, May i8, 2016 5A Jim Reed and Rob Rowen, two Democratic candidates running for regional office, provided Plumas County voters an opportunity to learn about their positions on a variety of topics at the Feather River Grange Hall on May 7. Their presentations were followed up by a question and answer format. Rob Rowen, running for State Senate, stated that as a moderate Democrat he believed that he had the ability to best represent the people of this district. He favors common sense over status quo, and his goals include obtaining rural energy independence using biomass, and bringing high speed Internet and broadband to rural California. He further stated that voters need a voice in Sacrame o, someone who can work within the legislature across party lines to get things done for this district. He asked the audience, "What has Ted Gaines done for you in the eight years he has been in office?" Rowen also stated that he wanted to work for every citizen of this district, not a political party or a special interest group. Jim Reed, running for U.S. Congress in California District 1, set forth his highest priorities as follows: 1) Work to establish permanent financing to save Social Security and Medicare; 2) Close income tax loopholes that allow special interest groups to pay at half the rate of the rest of the taxpayers and Corporations to get tax breaks in the U.S. by developing products here while getting tax exemptions on profits earned on the sales of these products overseas; 3) Encourage federal investment in North State infrastructure, which will create jobs and make the private sector competitive with Silicon Valley and San Francisco; 4) Find a reasonable solution to the student loan crisis; and 5) Overturn Citizens United.
