Daniel E. Hauser
Director
Dan Hauser and his wife Donna live in the City of Arcata, Humboldt County, in the far north coast California redwoods. They have two grown children and two grandchildren.

Dan graduated from Humboldt State University and served two terms on the Arcata City Council from 1974 to 1982. From 1978 to 1982 he was Mayor of Arcata. He was elected to the California Legislature in 1982 representing the 1st Assembly District for 14 years. His Assembly District included Del Norte, Humboldt, Lake, Mendocino and Sonoma Counties. Dan served a total of 14 years in the Assembly until termed out in 1996.

For 9 years he chaired the Committee on Housing and Community Development where he authored significant legislation involving mobilehomes and mobilehome parks. During his Assembly career, Dan Hauser (a Democrat) had a total of 306 pieces of legislation signed into law by Republican Governors. Following his service in the California Legislature, Dan was Executive Director of the North Coast Railroad Authority and General Manager of the Northwestern Pacific Railroad. For the last 5 years and 6 months before his retirement he was the City Manager for the City of Arcata.

Dan and Donna are enjoying their retirement traveling the world, being heavily involved in Boy Scouts, Kiwanis and (for Donna) quilting. His extensive experience as the author of mobilehome legislation, and his expertise in local and state government gained during his career as an elected official serving the City of Arcata and the State of California is a tremendous resource to ROP
and its clients.
