Jim Nielsen is another guy that I have been outspokenly critical of. I had been witheringly critical of Mr. Nielsen for talking conservative in the district and being anything but at the capitol.
Here is proof that the Older, Wiser Jim Nielsen has gotten more conservative with age and his actions circa 2013-2014 do not match everything I had learned about him from the years prior.
I have no illusions of ever being on friendly terms with Nielsen or his staff – that bridge was torched years ago. This endorsement is to thank Jim for doing the right thing, not to try to curry favor.
Please vote Jim Nielsen for Senate if you live in Roseville or the surrounding areas.

Association 100 Percent Pro-Taxpayer Voting Record
SACRAMENTO – The California Taxpayer’s Association (CalTax), the state’s oldest and largest organization representing taxpayers, has named Senator Jim Nielsen among its 25 state legislators to receive a perfect score for his voting record to protect taxpayers and oppose wasteful government spending.
“I am honored that the California Taxpayers Association has chosen to recognize me for the hard work I put in every day fighting for taxpayers,” said Senator Nielsen. “We are fortunate to have organizations like CalTax that are continuously working to ensure that more of our hard-earned money stays in our pockets and does not end up being wasted by big government.”
The score was calculated based on Senator’s Nielsen’s votes on high priority legislation identified by CalTax that would have a lasting impact on California’s tax structure, and that would affect economic certainty, equity, transparency and the complexity of California taxes.

Elected to the State Senate in January 2013, Senator Nielsen proudly represents the citizens of Butte, Colusa, Del Norte, Glenn, Nevada, Placer, Sacramento, Shasta, Siskiyou, Sutter, Tehama, Trinity and Yuba counties. Jim and his wife Marilyn Nielsen live in Gerber, California. He has two daughters, three sons and three grandchildren.
