Assemblyman Dodd to host town hall Dec. 21

Groundwater salinity and transportation, among key issues|

Assembly member Bill Dodd (D-Napa) will host a holiday Town Hall meeting for constituents in Sonoma Valley at the Vintage House Senior Center on Monday, Dec. 21, from 4 to 6 p.m.

The assemblyman urges constituents to bring any questions they may have about state policy and issues impacting the community. Groundwater management, particularly the salinity conditions that are beginning to infiltrate area aquifers, and transportation issues including road maintenance and infrastructure, are seen as two key areas of local concern.

In addition, Dodd is “actively engaged in the negotiations over the closure plan for the Sonoma Developmental Center, and has partnered well with state Sen. (Mike) McGuire and other key stakeholders in that effort,” according to his communications director John Moreno.

Dodd represents the 4th Assembly District, which includes the Springs communities of Boyes, Fetters and Agua Caliente, as well as Eldridge, Glen Ellen and Kenwood. (The City of Sonoma and other parts of the lower Valley are represented by Marc Levine, 10th Assembly District.)

Complimentary refreshments will be provided. While no reservations are required, you may RSVP to Dodd’s office at 576-0400 or visit
