Position Papers
Environmental Stewardship
Janet has a strong history of supporting and advocating for meaningful environmental policies. Our community, country and world are now at a crossroads. We all must identify and implement methods to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. To not do so will result in severe consequences.
Community Services, Public Safety & Traffic
Preserving and enhancing vital community services, and solving traffic congestion are among key issues facing our city.
Among the accomplishments that Janet is most proud is the recent $3+ Million acquisition of the Falletti-Veronda Ranch by the Sonoma County Open Space District. This treasure, recognized years ago by citizens as an important property, will forever be preserved from development.
