This year end/new year message is dedicated to Third District Block Captains whose sacred work has given strength to fire survivors – friends, family, neighbors and even complete strangers – during their darkest hours. You are my heroes.
It is with a heavy yet full heart that I write in observance of the one year anniversary of the October 2017 North Bay firestorm. There is no escaping that the past 12 months have been extremely distressful but for me they have also been a lesson in the strength of the human spirit.
At the beginning of this New Year it is safe to say that many of us are eager to close the book on 2017. I know these are challenging times for thousands of our community members who have lost homes, businesses, jobs, and even loved ones. The message I want to deliver now is that hope need not be abandoned and despair need not define us as we rebuild homes and lives, together. Read more in my January 2018 eNewsletter.
Welcome to the first edition of my eNewsletter for 2017. I am particularly honored to have been elected to serve as Chairwoman of the Board of Supervisors this year, the first time in Sonoma County’s 167 year history that we have had a majority of women governing the Board.
Supervisor Shirlee Zane's September 2016 Special Edition ENewsletter. Distracted driving takes many forms besides texting and talking on our phones; it includes eating, smoking, applying makeup, shaving and other activities that can have disastrous outcomes when combined with the complex task of operating a motorized vehicle in traffic. According to Distraction.gov, in 2014 alone, 3,179 people were killed, and 431,000 were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers on America’s roadways.
Welcome to the summer 2016 edition of my Third District e-Newsletter. In this installment I share updates on our Aging Together Initiative, Women Entrepreneurs, Food Recovery and Food Security. All of these projects hold great promise as we address our shared goals for a healthier Sonoma County.
As we begin this New Year I am reminded how important our collective efforts are in making Sonoma County a place that fosters the personal and community initiatives that make us extraordinary.
Welcome to the Fall 2015 edition of my eNewsletter. As the seasons change (hopefully, to include rain) we pause to celebrate the opening of the Rohnert Park Health Center and the potential for an incubator farm right outside Rohnert Park City limits. This newsletter installment also includes an update from my Sonoma County Safe Streets Coalition as well as my ideas for a tiny homes pilot project to alleviate homelessness. As always, please feel free to share your thoughts with my office on these topics or any others that involve the Third District.
Here, hot off the keyboard, is the summer 2015 edition of the Third District e-Newsletter. In this issue we cover three topics that stand out for me because they touch each and every one of us in some way- aging, parks and housing. We all fall somewhere within the aging spectrum, we love our parks and we all should be concerned with affordable housing. These three issues directly affect our quality of life, which is why I focused this e-Newsletter on these interests. Please don't hesitate to share with me any feedback you might have after reading the newsletter.
