A New Face in an Old Race – David Tangipa for District 8

PRATHER — A new figure has stepped up and into the public eye. Announcing his candidacy for the state legislature representing District 8, David Tangipa says, “I am running on the platform to bring back common sense for California. I believe we need to get back to the basics and get the basics right. Let’s lower the cost of living, properly manage our forest and make things make sense again.”

Endorsed by incumbent Jim Patterson, David is running for State Assembly to fight for common sense policies in the Central Valley and foothill communities, including forest management, water storage, public safety, and lowering the cost of living. 

David Tangipa is a San Joaquin Valley native, the son of a veteran, and a proud first-generation American Living his entire adult life in Fresno. He attended Fresno State and played tight end for the Bulldogs, where he learned the importance of discipline, hard work, and the spirit of the Central Valley.

David currently works in real estate for Modern Broker, Inc. and is the Field Representative for Fresno County Supervisor Nathan Magsig. 

He is proud to have earned the trust and endorsement of the following local leaders: Senator Shannon Grove, Assemblyman Jim Patterson, and Assemblyman Devon Mathis. Fresno County Sheriff John Zanoni, Fresno District Attorney Lisa Smittcamp, Fresno County Supervisors Nathan Magsig, Buddy Mendes, and Steve Brandau. Former Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims. Clovis Vice Mayor Vong Mouanoutoua, Clovis City Councilmembers Diance Pearce, Matt Basgall, and Drew Bessigner. Clovis Unified Board Members Clint Olivier and Deena Combs-Flores. 

In speaking, David is as calm and collected as he is passionate and inspiring when discussing his plans for the future as well as his past efforts to make sure our community is safe and well-informed during emergencies like the Creek Fire. David believes it is essential that residents of the central valley and Mountain communities “step up and get involved” in local politics and policy by participating in a variety of ways.

Running for the local school board, volunteering to help with local campaigns and initiatives, and reaching out directly to our communities’ local and state representatives are just a few of the ways you can help to have a positive impact on the communities’ local politics.

And as someone who has been on the receiving end of those emails and phone calls, David can personally attest to the impact those actions have on the people writing the rules and regulations and making the decisions that affect each and every member of the community, regardless of their political affiliation.
