I hope that everyone in Sonoma County takes the time to visit the candidate's web pages and read their policies. Oh, wait I am the only candidate talking about policy and telling people what it is I want to do as Sheriff. This election is so important for the future of Law Enforcement in our county the way we deal with immigration and homelessness are just two of the many important issues we face. I am posting down below a link to my policy page.

Housing is housing.

It's well documented that that one of the principle forces driving up the cost of housing in CA is all the opposition to any new housing proposed. The result is a continued shortage of housing, which drives the price up.

Those were market rate houses, that would not have helped the housing situation of the low or even medium income. That is why we organized and stopped it.

I always feel more secure when a man explains things to me and he knows that his opinion is well-documented.

Thank you, Magick for the clarification. That was information that was not included in the article. I agree we need affordable housing and that market rate housing is not as effective if we want diverse communities and to provide housing that is accessible to our vulnerable community members.

This research might be of interest: UC Berkeley researches found through their research on Bay Area housing that among other things, "both market-rate and subsidized housing development can reduce displacement pressures, but subsidized housing is twice as effective as market-rate development at the regional level."
Seems like a good reason to prioritize affordable housing and especially in the midst of this unprecedented housing crisis.

In 2003 the Sebastopol City Council recognized that the old apple processing district in the northeast area of the city would eventually come under pressure to develop. The General Plan at the time allowed for what we now see there - a tourist oriented, low density zone that few of us local residents visit for more than a loaf of Village Baker's great bread or a cup of coffee at Taylor Maid.

We wanted to guide development in a different direction, one that would be a higher density, pedestrian oriented mix of residential and retail, similar to Windsor's new downtown or Petaluma's Theater District.

The Northeast Area Plan for the area now mostly occupied by The Barlow called for 300 units of new housing, 20% of which would be affordable to low income families. The housing would have been in the upper stories of buildings occupied by retail and commercial businesses on the ground floor. All new construction, including streets and sidewalks, would have been on a platform raised above the 100 year flood level, with parking below.

It would have provided Sebastopol an extension of our downtown with a public plaza not surrounded by a state highway. McKinley Street would have been a pedestrian lane. In exchange for allowing a fourth story on certain buildings, we would have been able to negotiate a designated space for a new public library. All new construction would have been required to have either living roof systems or solar roofs.

The plan was developed over a four year period with participation by several hundred residents and supported by both environmentalists and the business community. In 2008 a group of people who were opposed to any new residential development organized a campaign to stop its formal adoption. Their argument was that it was "too big", that it would create unbearable traffic jams and that it would destroy Sebastopol's small town character.

This group succeeded in electing a council majority which rejected the plan in March of 2008. That majority, Sarah Gurney, Guy Wilson and Linda Kelley essentially voted for The Barlow as the preferred alternative to more housing. Sebastopol will have to live with the consequences of this decision for many years to come.

I surely would not vote for you, were I a Gville voter. Why is it these days that everything gets blamed on "the homeless"? I think that stance is having a negative effect on business in west county. I have recently spoken with several business owners in Gville and their business is DOWN considerably, even after the 'homeless bulldozing' which has happened there. Who will be your next scapegoats; Latins , gays, blacks? Shame on you for being part of the problem and not part of the solution in your lily white town.

He's what we Yids call a "mensch," a fine man with a mature spirit, compassionate heart, presence to bring to you, and a gifted eloquence. What's more, he can articulate his thoughts poetically and accurately, and I hear from a mutual friend who is a client of his, that Mr. Meyers is a marvelous guide and support for any writing project you might need help with.”

What the Storms Say

We have arrived. Yet
We are many and gather.
Still yelling at you
To turn, requiring you
To move, demanding
That you help each other.
We are screaming for you
To follow the spiral path
Of transformation. Our
Clouds swirl nine miles
High, we batter you so
You will learn your limits.
We barrel through your
Cities so you find out
You have gone too far.
You have forgotten too
Often how we are all
interconnected. Now
We remember. We
Are calling all of life
To acknowledge our
Indivisibility. Your
Souls are bound up
With us, the hurricanes,
The firestorms, and
The earthquakes.
We vibrate, we dance
In the wild rotations
Of celestial mirth.
Our souls follow
The beat, We are
Intrepid. We are
The spirits of change.
We call on you to
Reconsider your lives,
We are the hurricanes,
Insisting that you hurry,
Since there is little
Time before you and
Your circle of interrelated
Species will no longer
Be threatened, You will
Fall. To survive, you must
Keep watch and listen.
You run away to escape
The very thing you have
Created. Understand
This is not possible.
Safety is no where.
Extinction is upon us.
And when you return
From being with us,
What will you have?
Possessions are nothing.
We do not own one square
Inch of Mother Earth. She
Owns us, and she is out
Of patience. Trust not in
Material goods. Instead,
Rely on the wisdom of
The storms, the tsunami,
The floods, the tornados,
The lightning, the thunder.
See how we turn, We
Destroy, and we create.
We challenge you with
Your future, The time
Of the Great Migrations,
Of the Great Turnings,
Of the magical moments
Of mountains, The time
Of epiphany is upon you.
You have not lost everything.
What you have bought, what
You have so carefully counted
Has passed away. What you
Can hold is each other. What
You can cherish is diversity,
Multiplicity, all the forms
Of life. We order you to stand
Up and take notice. Our
Firestorms tell you to answer
Your grief with service. What
Service? To love one another,
To care, to give, to help. We
Are one. Something far greater
Than your selves are moving.
Something is being co-created.
You are like toddlers testing
Boundaries. You experience
Limits. All is not about comfort
Nor about your convenience.
Nor is it about what we own
Or what we can buy. All is
About our relationship to
Mother Earth and to and
Amongst her myriad of
Creatures. There is enough.
There is a way. The way is
Acknowledging suffering
As part of our path to
Redemption. The way
Of holding each other
And of committing
To the protection of
Sentient being to live
Together in peace and
In love. So we, the storm
Sprits are showing your
The price of all your lives
Is to recreate your lives.
You will run for your lives.
You will remember what
You thought your life was.
Then you will know exactly what
Life is worth. You are hunkered
Down under the storms. Your lives
belong to spirit and praise change.

- Patria Brown
