SOSroads sent six road policy questions concerning road repair, maintenance and funding to each candidate who is running for county supervisor this year. The initial elections will be held on Tuesday, June 7, with mail-in ballots being distributed during early May. If no candidate receives 50% in the June election, a run-off will be held in November between the two candidates who garner the most votes.

We have compiled the full responses from each of the three candidates for First District supervisor (Gina Cuclis, Supervisor Susan Gorin and Keith Rhinehart) here [click to see] and the five candidates for Fifth District supervisor (Marion Chase, Noreen Evans, Lynda Hopkins, Tom Lynch and Tim Sergent) here [click to see].

We also sent the questionnaire to Supervisor Shirlee Zane who is unopposed for reelection for her Third District seat. She declined to respond to the questionnaire and wrote “she has repeatedly demonstrated her commitment to addressing the roads issue here in Sonoma County.”

SOSroads and the Hessel Grange hosted a Road Summit and Candidates’ Forum for the candidates for the Fifth District on May 5 at the Hessel Grange Hall near Sebastopol. SOSroads provided background information on Sonoma County roads and sources of road funding and the candidates discussed possible solutions that address the county roads crisis.
