SANTA ROSA Elections

City of Santa Rosa residents will be voting on the remaining four district city council seats in the November 2020 General Election. In addition to the Federal, State and County elections, our local elections have brought many new leaders forward in political landscape. The historically un- & under-represented areas of Roseland/South Park and West Santa Rosa, Districts 1 & 7, will now have seats on the City Council. Council seats in Districts 3 and 5 will also be decided. The following is a list of all the City Council candidates, their websites as well as those for Santa Rosa City School Board – Area 1 and the Santa Rosa Junior College Trustees for the two Santa Rosa Area seats.
