NAPA, CA – U.S. Rep. Mike Thompson today announced he will run for re-election in the newly numbered Fourth Congressional District. The district includes all of Lake and Napa Counties and portions of Solano, Sonoma and Yolo Counties.

“I was born, grew up and have lived my entire life in the newly numbered Fourth Congressional District. The outpouring of support I’ve received is humbling and I’m looking forward to working with state and local leaders on the challenges we face,” said Rep. Mike Thompson.

Thompson has represented all of the newly drawn and numbered Fourth Congressional District in the past. As a senior Member of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, he is well-positioned to deliver for his district. He has been endorsed by sheriffs, supervisors, mayors, councilmembers and other community leaders from all five counties in the newly numbered Fourth Congressional District.

“Congressman Thompson has been a reliable, dedicated, and ardent advocate for the people of Lake County,” said Lake County Sheriff Brian Martin. “He has my support and endorsement.”

"Congressman Thompson knows Lake County, understands the problems of Lake County, and continuously advocates for Lake County,” said Lake County Board of Supervisors Chair Bruno Sabatier. “Not only does he represent Lake County well in Washington DC, but he has a presence here in Lake County allowing him to engage personally with local leaders."

“I am delighted that the new congressional maps have Representative Mike Thompson representing Lake County, and now also the City of Clearlake,” said Mayor of Clearlake Dirk Slooten. “Historically, Mike Thompson has shown that he cares deeply about Lake County. Now that he will also represent the City of Clearlake in Washington, I have no doubt that he will highlight the needs of the City and help solve the challenges faced by the City of Clearlake.”

“I am so thankful for Mike Thompson’s representation of Lakeport throughout his time in office,” said Lakeport City Councilmember Mireya Turner. “Mike works hard to address our local issues and I look forward to working with him for years to come.”

“Mike Thompson has been a champion in protecting the interests of Napa County in the halls of Congress,” said Napa Mayor Scott Sedgley. “For the challenging times ahead, we need his powerful voice now more than ever to continue advancing policies that improve our economy, create jobs, protect our environment and the special quality of life we enjoy in the Napa Valley. I am proud to support Mike Thompson for re-election to Congress.”

“Whether it's promoting our agricultural roots or championing equity and progress in our urban cores, Congressman Thompson is approachable, engaged, and fights to protect our diverse communities every day in Congress,” said David Oro, Council Member, City of American Canyon. “He's done an outstanding job representing our values so that’s why I’m proud to endorse him for re-election.”

“Congressman Mike Thompson is a leader with integrity, responsive to his constituents and most importantly, he is always open to difficult conversations,” said educator and community leader, Maria Cisneros. “When he says he will show up, speak up and defend the rights of people and the Constitution of the United States, he does. He upholds his oath of office. That is why I endorse Mike Thompson for Congress.”

“Excited that Congressman Mike Thompson will be representing a larger portion of Solano County again,” said Solano County Supervisor John M. Vasquez. “He has always been a friend to Solano County. He knows the issues that are unique to agriculture, transportation and our military, as Solano County is home to Travis Air Force Base. As a decorated war veteran, he certainly understands the issues of the veterans we serve here. I have worked with Mike over the years as he has represented different areas of our county as a state Senator and congressman and I am honored to be working more closely with him under the newly formed congressional boundary.”

“I have worked with Congressman Mike Thompson throughout his time serving Solano County in the State Senate and Congress,” said Solano County Supervisor Jim Spering. “He knows our area well and has been a fierce advocate for our issues, including being a champion for critical infrastructure projects for Solano County.”

“Mike Thompson knows Vacaville, understands our issues and has a proven track record of delivering for Solano County. He is a bipartisan problem solver, and I am glad to have him back as our representative,” said Vacaville Mayor Ron Rowlett.

“Congressman Thompson is a trusted voice in our community,” said Caitlin O’Halloran, President, Dixon Unified School District Governing Board. “He supports career and technical education and is helping to make college affordable. He will continue to work hard for our students and for their future.”

“Sonoma County is extremely fortunate to be represented by Congressman Mike Thompson,” said Sonoma County Supervisor David Rabbitt. “He is always attentive to the needs of his constituents and regularly engages with local elected officials, which makes him an excellent advocate for our community. I’m proud to once again endorse Mike – we need him in Washington.”

“Through fires, floods, and a pandemic, Mike Thompson has been there for Santa Rosa,” Mayor Chris Rogers said. “He has moved mountains to get our city the resources it needed to rebuild.”

“Mike Thompson has been a fearless advocate for the needs of our district,” said former Rohnert Park Mayor Gina Belforte. “His proven track record on climate change, gun legislation and health care is exactly the type of leadership and experience we need right now.”

“Mike Thompson stands out in the U.S. Congress for his intelligence, his vision and his political courage,” said long-time Sonoman, Steve Page. “In today’s environment where our very norms and institutions are under siege, it is great comfort to know we are represented by one of the best.”

"Congressman Thompson has always been an advocate for our recovery from recent natural disasters,” said Rocio Rodriguez, community emergency operations director. “We need his continued leadership in Congress to help our communities' efforts going forward in disaster mitigation, response, and recovery."

“Over and over again, Mike Thompson has been there for us in Yolo County,” said former California State Senator Lois Wolk. “He’s a proven advocate for the environment and agriculture, for strong public health policies, and for local government partnerships. We welcome him back as our representative in Washington.”

“Mike Thompson has a strong track record of delivering for Yolo County and I am pleased that he will once again be our advocate in Congress,” said Yolo County Supervisor Gary Sandy. “Mike knows our county well and will work in a bipartisan manner to forge practical solutions for our county’s greatest needs.”

“I look forward to working with Congressman Mike Thompson representing Yolo County,” said Yolo County Supervisor Oscar Villegas. “I enjoyed working with him in the past and look forward to working with him again in the very near future.”

“As a small agricultural producer himself, Mike Thompson is uniquely qualified to understand Yolo County agricultural and environmental needs,” said Bruce Rominger, a fifth generation Yolo County farmer. “He will be a vigorous advocate for our county’s priorities and I am excited he will once again be our representative in Congress.”
