Downtown Vitality: Through my experiences with the Chamber of Commerce, the Sebastopol Downtown Association and owning my own small, local business, I am committed to helping our local, small businesses thrive. Sales tax generated by our local businesses is an important source of revenue for our City services. If our downtown thrives, we all thrive. I want to partner and collaborate with our hard working business owners to ensure their success and to honor the time and work they put into our community. I value all the amenities and services our small business owners bring to our community.
