It’s not often we have the opportunity to vote for a candidate who is as outstanding as Elizabeth Betancourt.

She is a farmer and a small business owner and has the expertise we need - studying science at UC Davis and getting her master’s degree in forest and water management from Colorado State University.

She’s spent most of her working life in resource management. She understands our issues. She strives to develop solutions to problems collaboratively and will be the legislator we really need.

My feeling is that a husband and wife team from the small town of Bieber in Lassen county serving all nine counties is not the answer for our district.

To me, Elizabeth Betancourt is the only choice for Assembly for District 1 on November 5. She will provide the support we need in the north state. Visit for more information on what a great candidate she is.
