My Top 3 Priorities

  • Fire Recovery & Resilience for the Future of Climate Change - preparing our County with energy resilience to develop microgrids, powered by renewable energy to withstand power shutdowns, and work with the community on emergency preparedness.
  • Transformation of the Sonoma Developmental Center - working with the community to transform the closed Developmental Center into a hub of employment, services and workforce housing.
  • Housing and Homeless Services - rebuilding our homes lost in the fires and building a continuum of housing options to house our homeless, low-wage earners, families and seniors who are struggling to afford to live in our community.
