Veronica "Roni" Jacobi knows we need to protect existing jobs and keep creating and attracting new jobs as quickly as possible until everyone who wants a job can get a job.
“I support Veronica Jacobi for 5th District County Supervisor. As a Santa Rosa City Councilmember, Roni gave the most consistent support for environmental programs to improve public transportation options, including safe bicycling routes, to support water and energy conservation, enhance recycling, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. ALL of these programs were and are job creators! Other candidates talk about the environment and jobs, but Roni doesn't just talk the talk, she lives the talk.” - Jane E. Nielson, Sebastopol
"THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for your support during my four years, 2006 - 2010 serving on the Santa Rosa City Council! I am very happy to continue living in this wonderful area, and to continue our partnership on working towards a better future. I will be donating over half my Supervisor salary to local non-profits. During these difficult financial times, when many of us are experiencing hardships, I want to give to our local groups to help strengthen the support network." Veronica

Veronica stood firm during budget decisions to encourage all to contribute their fair share to reducing expenditures so jobs could be saved, and services maintained at safe levels.
She kept a watchful eye on upcoming revenue prediction shortfalls and focused on balancing the budget while keeping important functions working. Veronica insisted on OPEN BIDDING For Trash & Recycling Services & STOOD FIRM FOR THE BEST DEAL FOR THE SANTA ROSA RATEPAYERS. SHE WILL DO THAT FOR US COUNTY-WIDE TOO!
Keeping as many existing staff employed through difficult times, and especially retaining young talent was and is a very important focus to her.
Veronica also was the first councilmember TO CREATE A PLAN and start discussions ON PENSION REFORM and also brought forward Local Hire policies to keep our community's money circulating in our economy. She spearheaded efforts on Local Purchasing Preference, and continues building support for Clean Local Energy production to generate many new jobs and become a strong and reliable economic engine, while addressing our energy needs in ways that will help meet our greenhouse gas emmission reduction goals.Veronica strongly supports LOCAL AGRICULTURE and cutting red tape and incentivizing local food production, to make Sonoma County FOOD SELF-SUFFICIENT. Luther Burbank was right about this area being an amazing place for growing plants. With many families struggling, Veronica will help link food producers receiving incentives to agencies feeding our hungry.
Additionally, Veronica Jacobi believes that the way our area guides development in the next few years will be critical to our quality of life for generations. To continue a traditional subdivision approach will continue to result in forced reliance on automobiles, excessive water use, and destruction of greenbelts.
Veronica will continue bringing fresh ideas for improving and increasing affordable housing by clustering growth around schools, shopping, and public transportation hubs as well as provide safe and attractive pedestrian and bicycle routes.
Veronica Jacobi is committed to public safety, and will continue working hard to maintain effective law enforcement, fire and emergency services in all parts of Sonoma County, including creating more effective gang and violence prevention work with a greater emphasis on working with the community and empowering youth.
Veronica also supports MONEY WISE ROADWAY REPAIRS before it is too late, and improved public transportation, including alternative transportation linkages that work well with the SMART train, and more and safer pedestrian and bicycle routes throughout Sonoma County. With gas prices predicted to possibly increase to $7 per gallon in the future, people will want and need more extensive and flexible public transit. Increased evening and weekend buses should serve people with disabilities, people working second shifts, elders, students with late classes at the SRJC and SSU, youths, and those seeking social or other activities all around our big and beautiful county.
Veronica Jacobi believes that one of the best ways to solve problems is for neighbors to sit down with neighbors. She works with community groups to address neighborhood problems including traffic, parking, and graffiti. Veronica works for solutions that take everyone's concerns into account. Veronica knows how to listen.
Veronica Jacobi believes that our water and waste water systems throughout the County need serious attention to support our current residents & future development in an environmentally responsible way that minimizes risks and helps get our waterways back to their former magnificence and abundance of salmon and natural beauty. Her skill and experience as a Professional Engineer (PE) is valuable as our local government works to meet the needs of current and future residents.
As a Former Santa Rosa Councilwoman, as an engineer, as a business owner, as a mother, as a former foster parent to six children, as an end of life caregiver for over seven years for her grandfather and father, and as a community volunteer, Veronica Jacobi PE has proven she cares deeply AND gets things done to make Sonoma County a better community.
Let's get Veronica working for us on the Board of Supervisors!
