SACRAMENTO – On Tuesday, Assemblyman Frank Bigelow (R-O’Neals) was recognized by the National Federation of Independent Business, which gave him a 100 percent rating in its legislative annual voting record for supporting small business.
“As a representative of rural California and someone raised in a small business family, I understand the challenges facing small businesses in this state,” said Bigelow. “As a rancher, I know how difficult it can be to comply with burdensome state regulations. It is an honor to receive this recognition from NFIB.”
NFIB rated legislators for their votes on a list of 12 bills they deemed vital to the health of small business in California. Bigelow voted with small business on all 12 of the bills.
Prior to his election to the State Assembly, Bigelow worked his way through the ranks of Ponderosa Telephone Company. He is also active in the operation of his family’s cattle ranch, Bigelow Farms, and has served as a Paid Call Firefighter for Madera County for many decades.
O’Neals resident and lifelong rancher Frank Bigelow represents the 5th Assembly District, which encompasses Alpine, Amador, Calaveras, El Dorado, Madera, Mariposa, Mono, Placer, and Tuolumne counties and includes Lake Tahoe and Yosemite National Park.
