Simple survey released to help area leaders focus on local issues that impact you most

SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. — In an ongoing effort to best represent residents who live within her district, California’s 1st District Assemblywoman Megan Dahle is asking those who live within the areas she represents to fill out a quick and simple survey to help her determine the issues her constituents care about most.

With the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and public health crisis-related statewide closures and mandates effecting all those who live within the state, Dahle explained to SCNS, “It is my goal to find out what issues impact you most during this uncertain time.”

With questions covering basic issues such as the recent and ongoing pandemic-related business and school closures, access to high-speed internet service for students unable to attend classes in person and forced to use online distance learning, and unemployment due to business doors throughout the state remaining shuttered, the 15 question survey takes about 20 minutes to fill out.

Other simple questions cover issues such as California’s wildfires and fire-related insurance non-renewals or increased costs, as well as fire and wind related Public Safety Power Shutoffs. 

To help Dahle focus on the issues that affect you most, please fill out the following survey. All information gathered in the survey will be kept strictly confidential, according to Dahle.
