Who protects the resources most important to students in Sonoma County?

Fifth District Supervisor candidates Noreen Evans and Lynda Hopkins will address student’s questions regarding environment, local infrastructure, affordable housing and other issues affecting students at 3 p.m. August 29 in the student chambers in Bertolini.

The candidates are expected to speak five to seven minutes each prior to a Q&A session.

“Anybody has the right to come,” said Associated Students’ President Jordan Panana Carbajal. “One of these two board members will be voting on issues that directly affect students.”

Lynda Hopkins is a Stanford graduate, owner of an operating organic farm in Forestville and is married with two children. A former newspaper journalist, Hopkins looks to bring a fresh approach with greater community involvement and government transparency to the fifth district. Her proposals also include focusing on Education and Children’s Services.

Noreen Evans is a Sonoma County attorney for a private firm with extensive experience in both state and local legislations. She has been a Santa Rosa City Council Member, held a seat in the California State Assembly, and was a State Senator. Evans’ history of action in the community include legislative changes in housing, coast protection, parks, the local environment and other issues.

The fifth district incorporates West County, the entire Sonoma Coast, lower Russian River Area, Sebastopol, and west/southwest Santa Rosa areas.

    Noreen,
    Where are you? The opposition is running circles around you. If you’re serious about winning you need more exposure. Here are questions that 5th District voters want answered:
    1. Will you support the detachment of the lower Russian River from the former Palm Drive Hospital?
    2. Will you work to provide Monte Rio with a sewer system so we can rebuild our town?
    3.Tourism has increased the burden on public services. Will you support an increase in the TOT tax to insure that local residents do not loose protection?
    Thanks for your attention.
    Chuck
