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. During Chiang’s last three days in Northern California, he will be visiting Tehama, Nevada, Placer, Shasta, Tuolumne and Calaveras counties.
After hiking Mount Tamalpais in Muir Woods with local environmental leaders in Marin county, and then visiting the Benziger Winery and Sonoma town center in Sonoma county, Chiang will be heading East, first stepping foot on the William B. Ide Adobe State Historic Park in Tehama county on Saturday, September 30th. He will then be traveling to Redding to discuss preserving our salmon population with the Winnemem Wintu Native American Tribe before delivering the keynote speech at the Democratic
Central Committee of Shasta County Founder’s Dinner.
After meeting with regional party activists at the CDP Regional Meeting in Oakhurst, California on
Sunday, October 1st, he will travel to Jamestown, Tuolumne county to walk the historic 1897 State Historic Railtown Park. Later that afternoon he will hop over to Calaveras County to learn about Mark
Twain’s jumping frogs.
To wrap up his 10-county swing, Chiang will be touring California’s oldest small business– a 140-yearold manufacturing plant in Mariposa county on Monday, October 2nd. The Gladding McBean terra cotta clay manufacturing plant was established in 1875 and is one of the oldest family-owned businesses in the Golden State. Chiang will then take part in the Gubernatorial Forum at the Early Childhood Education Conference in Sacramento before meeting with party activists from Nevada and Placer Counties in Grass Valley.
After completing this seven-day, 10-county swing, Chiang will have visited more than 20 of California’s 58 counties, over 30 cities, and will have traveled more than 3,000 miles across California–which is longer in distance than Los Angeles to Boston, Massachusetts.
