FAIRFIELD — Assemblyman Dan Logue, R-Marysville, spent Wednesday traveling the 3rd Congressional District to announce his plans to challenge Rep. John Garamendi, D-Walnut Grove, in the next election.

First on that stop was the Solano County Government Center, where a group of supporters gathered to hear his plans to bring jobs to residents and keep businesses from leaving for Texas and Tennessee. He later stopped in Davis before a rally on his home turf of Yuba City.

“This is where we kick off the game,” Logue said in a speech near the fountain outside the Government Center. “The left has had their chance. And they have failed.”

Logue continually said regulatory agencies are getting in the way of small businesses thriving and vowed to relax some of the power from groups such as the Environmental Protection Agency.

He accused Garamendi of “wrapping his arms around Obamacare,” a nickname for the federal Affordable Care Act, and suggested that businesses get credits for providing health care for those who wouldn’t normally receive it. Logue chairs the Assembly Health Committee.

Logue said a good part of his campaign will focus on Solano County. He acknowledged the importance of Travis Air Force Base and said he’s familiar with working on military issues because Beale Air Force Base is in his region.

The 3rd Congressional District includes Solano, Yolo, Sutter, Colusa, Sacramento, Glenn, Yuba and Lake counties. The primary vote in in June 2014. The general election is in November 2014.

    What does he propose? How will he keep businesses from being enticed to relocate? What type of jobs does he think he can bring to the area? I want to hear some solutions not just election phrases.

    Logue led took Lt. Governor, Gavin Newsome and others to Texas last year to meet with Governor Perry to hear first hand how Texas has been able to steal our businesses. It's not rocket science and Logue already knew the answer, but he wanted the Brown administration to 1understand. Perry told them two things. 1. You cannot grow the government (raising taxes) and the economy at the same time. 2. You have nearly 1,000 regulatory agencies in California vs. approximately 100 in Texas. Take a look at Logue's voting record and you'll see that it follows those tenets. Quit overtaxing small business and make regulation necessary and reasonable.

    Texas and South Carolina will continue to make mincemeat out of your State. Governor Rick Perry of Texas and Governor Nikki Haley of South Carolina will raid again and take even more of your jobs, business and industry along with 2 parent families. In return, your State will get their illegal aliens and welfare recipients. I think it's great deal! A big smile every time I think about it. That way, you guys can sit back and project the blame on ''Republicans'' and say into perpetuity---''it's Bush's fault''! LOL!
