Dodd-BillYolo Leaders Pimentel And Rexroad Endorse Dodd For Assembly

Napa County Supervisor and 4th Assembly District candidate Bill Dodd today announced that former Woodland Mayor Art Pimentel and Yolo County Supervisor Matt Rexroad have endorsed his bid for State Assembly.

“Looking at Bill’s record, it’s clear he uses his business experience watching the bottom line to ask tough questions about spending,” said Supervisor Rexroad, a Republican. “His fiscal responsibility shows with 14 straight balanced county budgets and active efforts to bring Napa County pension funding in line.”

“Bill’s family has an agricultural background and he’s done a lot of good preserving agriculture in Napa County, so he shares our values,” said Pimentel. “Bill will represent Yolo County well and always remember where he comes from.”

“I’ve gotten to know Art and Matt a lot better during this campaign,” said Dodd. “They’re terrific public servants and have gone the extra mile, along with some other folks, to help me better understand the specific needs of Northern Yolo County, which I really appreciate. I’ll be a better representative for Woodland and the rest of Yolo County because of their support”

Dodd is a Democrat from Napa County. After a 25-year business career, he has served 14 years on the Napa County Board of Supervisors. Assembly District 4 includes Napa and Lake Counties and portions of Colusa, Solano, Sonoma and Yolo Counties.
