Candidate running against Congressman LaMalfa joins wildfire safety tour

Candidate running against Congressman LaMalfa joins wildfire safety tour

During a tour for wildfire safety on Bidwell Canyon Trail Tuesday, representatives from the offices of Congressman Doug LaMalfa and Assemblyman James Gallagher were there to learn how to create defensible space.

A candidate to run against LaMalfa in U.S. Congress was also in attendance, Jessica Holcombe.

She's running her campaign on an effort to provide affordable healthcare for all and free enrollment to public universities.

Holcombe is from North Auburn in Placer County, but made the drive to Oroville to learn more about fire suppression and keeping the community safe.

"It's really important for all of us as elected officials to understand the needs of our communities and we rely on the expertise of those who have been in these fields for 15 years, 20 years, to explain what the innovative processes are in order to prevent wildfires in the first place," Holcombe said.
