Wildfire Recovery

Wildfire RecoveryWe have all been affected by the recent wildfires that devastated Sonoma County.  While the 2nd District was largely out of harm’s way, we’ve seen thousands of homes and businesses, along with the livelihoods of those who resided or worked there, destroyed by the fire, along with community staples such as Clover Stornetta on Fremont Drive and the Fountaingrove Round Barn in Santa Rosa.  The ripple effects of this tragedy are still unfolding, whether it be to our housing, to our economy, and to the health and well-being of our residents.  As we confront these challenges, I am more committed than ever to work with you and all our residents to build a more resilient future for Sonoma County, while addressing the many other quality-of-life issues that make Sonoma County such a remarkable place.  I could not be more proud of the outpouring of love and support we’ve seen in the darkest of times, and stand with you to ensure we continue to be #SonomaCountyStrong.

If you have a family member, friend, co-worker or colleague who has been displaced by the recent Sonoma County wildfires, I want them to know the Board of Supervisors, the County and the community are here for them to do whatever we can to aide in our ongoing relief and recovery efforts.  Below is a link to a resource page set-up by the County of Sonoma to assist those who’ve been affected:

“No one has worked harder or got more done for Sonoma County than Supervisor David Rabbitt. He is widely viewed as the Board of Supervisors’ most steady and stable hand, and has delivered for all of us, not only on agricultural issues, but also on issues including road repair and improvement projects, public transportation, housing and so much more. When I think of someone who gets things done for Sonoma County, David Rabbitt is the first person that comes to mind. We need his proven leadership on the Board of Supervisors now more than ever.”
