Now that all the votes have been counted and the results are official, I want to thank the voters for electing me your Sonoma County Board of Education Area One Trustee. I am especially appreciative of the individuals who brought to my attention the situation on the county school board and asked me to run. I would not have run if they hadn’t asked, because running for another office immediately after the June county supervisor’s election was the last thing on my mind.
The incumbent I defeated is a Santa Rosa resident living in Oakmont. One of the individuals who encouraged me to run stated how this was the only opportunity left for Sonoma Valley to have true representation from one its own in a county office. That argument convinced me to run, and I’m glad I did. Thank you again.
