3. Teri Shore, Director, Greenbelt Alliance, Ballot Measure K
4. Noreen Evans, Candidate for Sonoma County 5th District Supervisor
Guests 1. Julie Combs and 2. Ann Seeley discuss the need for the two council approved Measures O and N toward the very end of the long ballot for November 8, 2016. For Measure O, the City Council wishes to amend the General Fund baseline requirement to remove the set dollar amounts under Measure O, and replace them with a set percentage of the General Fund budget to provide more flexibility to ensure equal treatment for Police, Fire and Gang Prevention/Treatment. The Police and Fire under the original formula received funding at the cost of Gang Prevention/Treatment. Measure N extends the 1/4 cent sales tax to fund city services.

Guest 3. Teri Shore discusses the need for protecting the farm and natural greenf spaces between cities in the county, while allowing sustainable urban growth. Measure K renews the Community Separators protections for another 20 years.

Guest 4. Noreen Evans is one of two final candidates, both women, on the ballot for the 5th District Supervisor of Sonoma County. This will be the first time that the County Supervisors will have a majority of women on the Board. Noreen has served two Santa Rosa City Council terms before being elected to be State Senator, and chosen to be the Majority Whip. Noreen, who is an attorney with a JD degree, is the first woman to receive the Defender of Justice Award from the Judicial Council of California. Noreen is also a mother of three children and lives in Sebastopol. She discusses what sets her apart from the other candidate, who will be interviewed next week on Women’ Spaces with the same questions.
