<p>New This Year -- All Statements <b>Must</b> Be Printed in English & Spanish</p>

Due to the fact that Sonoma County was recently designated a bilingual county by the federal government, all candidate Statements of Qualifications published in the County Voter Information Guide are required to be in both English and Spanish. As a result, the less expensive "English only" cost category has been removed.
