A new year, a new council majority

Sonoma Valley Sun Editorial

Two things about this editorial:

1) Let’s not forget cannabis:

The City of Sonoma has a plateful of difficult and complicated issues needing resolution. Among these are: General Plan update, renewal of the Urban Growth Boundary, funding and planning for affordable housing, following through on climate protection measures, tasting rooms on the Plaza, cemetery deficits, development lawsuits, traffic circulation and pedestrian safety, and pension funding. Now is the time for serious deliberation and action.

2)

Whether left or right of center, each council member should be prepared to back opinions with their understanding of the facts, and not simply deliver a monologue that does not respond fully to the host of views and positions held by each other and the public.

Just to remind, there was a serious lack of fact-based arguments offered by some of the council members.
