Sonoma County Summer PLAYTIME - Vacation at Home

Sonoma County Hikes & Bike Rides
Summer 2015 - Part 1

Even if you work all summer, make sure you take time to enjoy the paradise we call home. Evenings are long - parks close at sunset, so you have time to get out for a few hours at the end of your day. Right now rivers and lakes have water, that might not be the case all summer long. So go swim, take a canoe out on the river, a pleasure boat out on the lakes - hike the east county parks before it gets too hot...there's a whole home to explore. This is the time to do it!

Living Wage: Because Rent Won't Wait

A Living Wage: 

Will Sonoma County  Join 140 Other Communities?

As the “Fight for $15” movement sweeps the nation and the Bay Area, the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors is set to consider a 

Living Wage Ordinance that, among other things, calls for a $15 an hour minimum wage—or living wage—that could benefit up to 5,500 low-wage workers with employment ties to the county.
