Rich's Platform and Goals for Woodland

Serving The Woodland Community

Rich has lived in Woodland for over 50 years and lived in District 1 for over 30 years.  Rich has served Woodland in many capacities both public and private.  Rich was a Woodland Police Officer for over 20 years. Rich has worked tirelessly to make Woodland a great place live, work and visit.

Working toward common goals

Rich's experience will help build bridges and  close the gaps.   Rich's diversified background will help him work with all community groups.  Recognizing differences of opinions is the first step to reaching resolutions.  

Bob and Judy Simas

Neighbors Helping Neighbors

Rich cannot be a successful candidate without the help of his friends, neighbors, colleagues and people who want to see Woodland grow and prosper.  Bob and Judy Simas live in District 1.  They will hosting an event this summer to help the campaign. More to come as plans come together.

Why I am Running for City Council

Having almost completed two full careers, both in service to the public, I feel the need to give back to my community.  It's time to bring my experience to the Council and get to work on the issues facing the City.  I know there is a lot of frustration about the homeless population as well as people feeling unsafe in certain areas.  I also understand that there are efforts underway  which are having some impact on the issues.  However,  there is still a lot to do.  This is what the signs  will look like.  I will  distribute them as soon as the June Primary is over in June.

Coming Events

Stay tuned for upcoming events.  As the campaign moves towards the November election events will be planned.  I am most pleased with supporters who want to  hold events for the campaign.  Stay tuned.....

Nothing really gets done unless we take the time to listen to concerns.  People have access to me by phone, text, email.  Please let me know what is on your mind.  If I can help.......if I can share your concerns with the rest of the assured your concerns will not be ignored.  Call or text at 530-666-2821.  My email is

Promoting Woodland

Over the last few years there has been a tremendous push to get the word out that Woodland is a great place to live and work.  But i think we can do a little better on getting people to visit Woodland for a day.......a weekend.  We just need to make it attractive for visitors to spend their time and money in Woodland.  As a council member I will devote attention to making Woodland an enjoyable place to visit.

Endorsements (many more to come)

While I don't live in District 1, I still support Rich Lansburgh for City Council.   I am sure that he will be a strong voice for everyone in Woodland, not just District 1.  Rich has the experience needed to tackle the problems facing Woodland.

Getting Close

Ted Ruiz, Woodland Police Supervisors Association endorses my campaign.

Election is November 6th

It would be helpful if each of you would reach out to one District 1 resident and let them know that a vote for me is a vote for a better tomorrow......I won't rest until we see some results.

Election Night Gathering

Nancy and I will be opening our home starting an hour before the polls close.  We will have refreshments and snacks... Please come by and let me thank you for your support....640 Wildwood Way.

Another Great Endorsement

The Woodland Police Supervisors Association has voted to endorse me.  These folks are the ones who provide daily supervision to police department staff.  Thanks to all of you!!


Some of you may know that there are community people who are questioning whether or not one of my opponents is actually a resident of District 1.  I think that is something to be considered.  But I will leave that up to the voters.  

Thank you!!!!!!

You know I have run a positive campaign with the hope and anticipation that we will make some positive changes to our community.  We must engage, educate and work together to solve problems.
