State Assemblyman Bill Dodd today reported receiving the endorsement of the California Faculty Association, the organization that represents faculty and staff at the California State University system, in the race for State Senate District 3.
“As a California State University alumnus himself, Bill Dodd knows how valuable a public university education can be for personal growth and economic success,” said Sonoma State Mathematics Professor Elaine Newman, “As our next state senator, Bill will make sure our CSU system delivers an affordable, fiscally disciplined, and strong experience for California’s students and their parents.
“That includes supporting a robust and appreciated faculty who are the lynchpin to achieving a highest quality university experience.”
Dodd is running for the 3rd Senate District, which includes all of Napa and Solano Counties, as well as portions of Contra Costa, Sacramento, Sonoma and Yolo Counties. It includes the cities of Petaluma, Cotati, Rohnert Park, Sonoma, Pleasant Hill, Martinez, American Canyon, Calistoga, Napa, St. Helena, Yountville, Benicia, Dixon, Fairfield, Rio Vista, Suisun City, Vacaville, Vallejo, Davis, Winters, Woodland and Isleton.
Dodd is a Democrat from Napa County. After a successful 25-year business career, Dodd served four terms on the Napa County Board of Supervisors, and currently represents the 4th Assembly District.
