About Dave

David Kehoe in a sweater, smiling

I was born in Redding and attended St. Joseph’s Elementary School and Shasta High School before earning a degree in Public Administration from the University of San Francisco.

I was elected to the Redding City Council in April 1992, serving as Mayor in 1995-96 and 1998. Subsequently, I was elected to the Shasta County Board of Supervisors. During my tenure in public office, I have been a strong advocate for fiscal and management accountability, reliable public services, open government, responsible growth, increased economic development, expanded city-county cooperation and responsive leadership that is decisive and trustworthy.

Listening to citizens in a respectful fashion and providing protection and services that residents need is of paramount importance to me. Yet, these community needs must be balanced against the ability and capacity of the citizens to pay for them. I am not supportive of an approach to government that places unfair or unnecessary financial burden on local taxpayers. The government must learn to live within its means.

As your supervisor, I will continue to emphasize community involvement and expect state-of-the-art approaches to the delivery of public services. I will work diligently to provide the leadership necessary for cohesive, effective and efficient county government.

I support David Kehoe because when my family came here in 1993, David Kehoe went out of his way to welcome us to this wonderful community and make us feel at home. He is a “Pillar of the Community” who works hard every day to keep this county great.

My deep-seated respect for the members of our community and my dedication to the attainment of the public good have served me well during my years of public service. My focus in the next four years will be on the following issues that impact our county and its citizens. For, when we, as elected representatives, become too far removed or isolated from community members, it tends to create uncertainty, ambiguity and suspicion — resulting, if you will, in a serious crisis of confidence.

David Kehoe has my support because he is full of integrity, thoughtful, dedicated to good government, and hard-working.
