          enforcement career, Richard "Dick" Dickerson served in the  
          California State Assembly from 1998 to 2002.  Mr. Dickerson  
          represented the 2nd Assembly District and served as Vice Chair  
          of the Assembly Committees on Public Safety and on Water, Parks,  
          and Wildlife, and as a member of more committees than any other  
          Republican member.

          Mr. Dickerson was instrumental in raising awareness among  
          members of the Legislature regarding water conservation and  
          water storage.  He helped pioneer a program that activated  
          nonviolent inmates to assist with fighting fires, emergency  
          flood work, and environmental restoration. 

          After 9/11, Mr. Dickerson was appointed to the Task Force on  
          Terrorism.  He served on nine select committees and authored 20  
          bills that were enacted during his time in the Assembly.  He was  
          an effective negotiator in the 2001 budget discussions, securing  
          funds for numerous projects including a permanent tax exemption  
          on propane and agricultural diesel, rural county sheriffs'  
          departments, tax relief for senior citizens, and school  
          equalization.

          Mr. Dickerson received numerous awards throughout his tenure in  
          the Assembly, including awards of appreciation from the Far West  
          Equipment Dealers Association, Klamath Water Users Association,  
          and Rice Producers of California. After serving in the Assembly,  
          Mr. Dickerson served on the Redding City Council from 2004 to  
          2012, inclusive, serving twice as mayor of the City of Redding.

          Mr. Dickerson passed away on September 28, 2014.  He is survived  
          by his wife Betty and four children, his niece, and eight  
          grandchildren.
