Local Farmer Ryan Schohr has announced his candidacy for the State Assembly. Due to term limits, current Assemblyman Dan Logue will be prevented from seeking re-election, and Schohr is the anticipated replacement for California’s Third Assembly District.
“My family has farmed in Northern California for more than 150 years. Our communities need a representative who has as much experience on a tractor as in a meeting room,” said Schohr. “I intend to be the voice of agriculture in the Legislature.”
Schohr is the former President of the Butte County Farm Bureau and currently serves on the California Rice Commission. His expertise on rice, grains, hay, cattle, trucking, and water comes from years of experience that dates back to his childhood. For Ryan Schohr, farming is a way of life.
Ryan and his wife Holly have been married for more than seven years. She is a partner in the family business, and serves the people of Nevada County as an Epidemiologist in the Public Health Department.
Schohr will be known in the Legislature as a common sense farmer from Butte County who is willing to stand up to Sacramento’s career politicians. Unlike many elected officials using their positions as a stepping-stone to higher office, Schohr will be focused on what is right for the residents of his district.
