"My strong sense of community is based firmly in family values.  I am a native resident of Shasta County.  Together, my wife Susie and I, married 37 years, have three children and seven grandchildren.  When I'm asked why I serve our community, I share that it is to encourage, to strengthen families and to grow relationships.  I serve because I value the people that live, work and play in Shasta County, this place we proudly call home." - Les
