Last week we visited the State of the County event and heard from some key voices representing our diverse community. Visit our website to hear from Ana Lugo, President of the North Bay Organizing Project, Reno Franklin, Chair of the Kashia Band of Pomo Indians, and Beth Brown, President and CEO of the Community Foundation of Sonoma County.

Today we’re back at the State of the County breakfast with News Director Steve Mencher.  He says the expert that many had come to see was economist Jerry Nickelsburg, director of UCLA’s Anderson Forecast.

His talk focused on the local, state and national economy – as well as how the county’s recovery would be aided – or hindered – by economic trends.
