Dear Neighbor,

Since moving to Rohnert Park in 1961, I’ve witnessed the evolution of this small farming town into the “Friendly City” we know today. My husband and I are raising our family here, manage a business here and have given back to our community and worked to improve our quality of life.

Given my diverse record of community service in the City of Rohnert Park, I’m ready to use this experience to continue advocating for an even better quality of life for Rohnert Park residents as a member of the City Council.

I hope to count on your vote in this important election. If you have any questions or would like to talk with me about any issue, you can reach me at (707) 291-8450.

Thank you for your consideration,

Susan Hollingsworth Adams
