California State Assembly, District 8 - 2022

Nichols filed as a write-in candidate in the June primary. He received 9 votes, but since there was only one candidate on the ballot this was sufficient to qualify him as one of the "top two" to appear on the ballot in the general election. In that election, running against a Republican, Jim Patterson, he received 43,818 votes (25.71%).

Campaign summary from "The Beacon", September 2022:

I am Tom Nichols, and I want to be the representative for Assembly District 8. As a long-time resident of the Sierra foothills, I know the problems faced by District 8 citizens. I have personally been at the mercy of state and federal mismanagement and had my home threatened by wildfire. Like many of you, I now face the rising insurance premiums that are endangering the livelihoods of the people who live and work here. We must regain control of our public lands as well as our surface and groundwater; the futures of our communities are at stake.
