Part I: Gubernatorial Candidate, John Chiang Will Kick Off Week-Long Road Trip in Marin, Sonoma, and Humboldt Counties


Pasadena, CA –  As part of a year-long 58 county road trip, gubernatorial candidate John Chiang will be kicking off a week-long, 10-County swing through Northern California on Monday, September 25th in Marin County, California. Along his week-long trip, Chiang will be visiting Marin, Sonoma, Humboldt, Nevada, Placer, Shasta, Lassen, Tuolumne, Calaveras, and Mariposa counties on his swing.

The first half of Chiang’s excursion will include visiting Marin, Sonoma, and Humboldt counties. After kicking off the 10-county swing with the Marin County Young Democrats on Monday evening, Chiang will be taking to Mount Tamalpais on Tuesday Morning with a group of Marin County’s environmental leaders. He will then head to Sonoma County to tour the County Farm Bureau Winery and Sonoma City Hall to discuss the Bear Flag Revolt with local historian Peter Meyerhof.

One of the biggest highlights of Chiang’s 10-day excursion will come on the night of Tuesday, September 26th when Chiang will camp overnight at the Giant Redwoods RV Park in Myers Flat, California in his campaign camper.

On Wednesday, Chiang will travel north to Humboldt County where he will be led on a tour of the Humboldt State Oceanography Laboratory by Dr. Brian Tissot, director of the Marine Facility. Chiang will also kayak through the Humboldt Bay after leading an open forum at the College of the Redwoods.

After completing this seven-day, 10-county swing, Chiang will have visited more than 20 of California’s 58 counties, more than 30 cities, and will have traveled more than 3,000 miles across California — which is longer in distance than it is from Los Angeles to Boston, Massachusetts.
