The show began today with

followed by
Commentary by Elaine B. Holtz and then her featured Guests:

The Sonoma County Independent Office of Law Enforcement and Outreach (IOLERO) is assisited by the Community Advisory Committee in the handling of complaints against the Sheriff’s Office.  A recent CAC disagreement with the Director met with the dismissal of the Committee President Alicia Ramon by the Director of IOLERO, Jerry Threet, causing distrust to arise among those advocating for better community relations with the Sheriff. Elaine reads remarks that she made at the IOLERO-CAC meeting last Monday 4/3/17. IOLERO and its CAC were set up by the County in response to the Sonoma County Sheriff Deputy killing of an unarmed 13-year old boy Andy Lopez, on which many shows of Women Spaces have dealt with in interviews.
