Congressman Kiley holds Town Hall in Quincy

Congressman Kevin Kiley held a Town Hall meeting in Quincy on Feb. 21, which was well attended despite the weather. Kiley discussed the importance of active forest management practices, his support for suspending the state gas tax and working to reduce the impacts of inflation, and reducing the flow of fentanyl into the U.S. and securing the border.

Local officials were in the audience including Plumas County Supervisors Jeff Engel, Greg Hagwood and Tom McGowan, as well as County Administrative Officer Debra Lucero and Sheriff Todd Johns.

Hagwood said he discussed with the congressman the importance of proper forest management and the need to put out fires quickly, noting that 60 percent of the county has burned. He also talked about the historical significance of timber receipts and the logging industry for Plumas County.

The congressman listened to the comments made and engaged with the audience. He also discussed the importance of working across the aisle. He hopes to hold more such events as the opportunities arise. Kiley represents a district that stretches from Plumas County to Death Valley along the eastern side of the state.
