In 1990, through the foresight of community leaders and thoughtful citizens, Sonoma County voters approved the creation of the Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District and a quarter-cent sales tax that provides funding for land conservation, including planning, acquisition, and stewardship of the region’s working, natural, and scenic open space lands.
During the "sunny day" outages of 2014 and 2015, we documented the scope of the telecommunications outages. Data from those surveys were compiled with other sources (OES reports, AT&T reports, etc) into a comprehensive report which was shared widely with elected representatives, the CPUC, and even the FCC. They were also cited incomments from CPUC commissioners (pages 8, 9, and 12) in specific proceedings, in anGAO report, and I believe had a role in the positive decision that occurred in the Rural Call Completion in December 2016.
Sonoma County District Attorney Jill Ravitch warns Sonoma County residents of scams involving fraudulently filed applications for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) assistance. The Napa and Sonoma County District Attorney’s Offices received several reports from residents whose personal identifying information, including their social security numbers, had been used to file a fraudulent FEMA application. Some residents reported that they attempted to apply for FEMA assistance, only to find that someone had already applied under their name. While other residents, who had not filed applications for assistance, reported that FEMA-affiliated inspectors came to their homes to ask about their applications.

Sonoma County is coming out for our own in more ways than we can count. SONOMA-STRONG
