Record spending by outside business interests dominated yesterday’s special election in Sonoma County, but Santa Rosa’s Measure C was not the day’s only story. 

Former Healdsburg City Council member Leah Gold won a four-way race to return to that body.

Voter turnout was low yesterday with just 40 thousand ballots cast, nearly three-quarters of them in Santa Rosa. See the final totals here.
