Post Card Campaign

Post Card Campaign

Hi All,

Who can resist reading a colorful, eye-catching post card, right? And when you have an important message to get out, direct mail can have a real impact. A U.S. Postal Service-sponsored study found that postcards can generate a more significant and lasting effect than digital communications.

So, we’re looking for volunteers for our upcoming postcard campaign. Time to Go Big and Have Fun doing it. We have safe, friendly outdoor locations, we can provide some beverages, tasty gnoshes (pot-luck welcome, too), beautiful cards (all unique), we handle postage and mailing. It’s a great opportunity to get together, chat, laugh and accomplish something for the community.

So, if you’re interested in bringing that second dispensary to Sonoma and would like to help, reach out to us at and we’ll arrange to get you some post cards to send to the City Council.


To Put It Simply…

To Put It Simply…

Sometimes pictures can be worth much more than words. Our infograph tells the story of why we need the dispensary process to begin ASAP. We’ll forward this to the City Council.

Sonoma Valley Cannabis Group Endorses Sandra Lowe

Sonoma Valley Cannabis Group Endorses Sandra Lowe

The Sonoma County Registrar of Voters this week began mailing vote-by-mail ballots for the Nov. 2, 2021.

So a small group of us came together as a mayoral candidate review committee to suggest an endorsement. We’ve done a lot of research on backgrounds and four of us went to the recent Candidates night sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce. We spoke with all three candidates and gave them a handout describing our current situation with the stalled process.

We endorse Sandra Lowe for the city council seat. She has more, higher level political experience than the other candidates and supports the second dispensary. As the Sonoma Index-Tribune stated in its endorsement of Lowe, “In recent years, Sonoma voters have supported an exceedingly progressive City Council, driven by Amy Harrington, Logan Harvey and Rachel Hundley. But with all three stepping down from their seats, the current council mix is decidedly more centered. Lowe’s views seem to align best with the voters here in Sonoma, giving us confidence that she will listen and lead in a direction that people can get behind.”

Sonoma Valley Cannabis Group Public Comments at City Council Meeting

The 200+ member Sonoma Valley Cannabis Group continues to work to prevent a monopoly of service within the city of Sonoma.

1. Great weave by Josette Brose-Eichar of the Mattson issue with the dispensary process.

2. Mayor almost skips over my Zoom public comment

3. Member Perri Ellis Paniagua‘s Zoom hand was finally recognized after being raised for 40 minutes. After she explained she’d been waiting and that she had no comment on the item at hand, she was perfunctorily dismissed with a “thank you”. Some time later council attempted to re-establish with Perri, to no avail.

The City Council still has technical and managerial issues when it comes to both accommodating public comment and running a meeting smoothly.
