For this midterm election, it is crucially important to voters to show up at the polls. There needs to be a strong voter turnout to send a message that American voters are paying attention, engaged and want their voices heard. NBLC is pleased to announce our endorsements for this November’s election:
Santa Rosa City Council – District 2: John Sawyer (Inc.); District 4: Dorothy Beattie; District 6: Tom Schwedhelm (Inc.) – Note that Schwedhelm is running unopposed
Petaluma – Mike Harris for Mayor; Dave King (Inc.) and Michael Regan for City Council
Rohnert Park City Council– Pam Stafford (Inc.); Susan Adams

YES on Measure N: Santa Rosa Housing Bond
YES on Prop 1: Issues $4 Billion in bonds for housing programs and veterans’ home loans

NO on Proposition 6: Repeals the 2017 fuel tax and vehicle fee increases (SB 1) to fund road, bridge and highway repairs and requires a public vote on future increases. If passed, it would remove funding for the Marin/Sonoma Narrows, local road improvements and impact safety.
NO on Proposition 10: Repeals the Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act and allows local governments to enact rent control. If passed, it would depress future housing construction and worsen the housing crisis.
