Brown to kick off campaign for Congress in Grass Valley Friday

GRASS VALLEY ” Retired Air Force Lt. Col. Charlie Brown will announce his 2008 candidacy for Congress Friday during a barnstorming tour of California’s 4th District.

The tour will include a 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. stop at the Nevada County Airport, 13083 John Bauer Ave., Grass Valley.

Brown is a Democrat from Roseville vying to take the seat of nine-term incumbent Rep. John Doolittle, (R-Roseville). No one has opposed Brown’s candidacy for the Democratic nomination yet.

Two Republican candidates have announced June 2008 primary runs against Doolittle for the GOP nomination, including Auburn City Councilman Mike Holmes and Air Force Reservist Eric Egland of Placer County. State Assemblyman Ted Gaines of Placer County said last week he is considering a run as well.
