Before Deciding

When our representatives are making important decisions that impact all of our lives I believe it is important to ask one basic question before making
those decisions,
Is this good for
the children?

Just imagine what our world would be like if that question was asked prior to making decisions about going to war, the environment, education or healthcare.

Guest  1.  Jennifer Schallert shares her journey as a mother of 2 boys into active partipation in democracy at the local level. Jenn as a volunteer joined the Integrated Voter Engagement Team of NBOP to register voters in neglected areas of the county.

Guest 2.    Jolene Strange talks of her journey to the forefront of the medical cannabis and recreational cannabis entry into the commercial market.  Jolene joined the Board of Directors of the Sonoma County Growers Association and professionally helps growers to enter the legal but highly regulated market.  Jolene talks about the hastily decided Measure A offered to the voters in the county by the Board of Supervisors (BOS) without any opposition printed in the Voter Pamphlet Guide for the ballot of March 7, 2017.  The county needs a funding source for the new land use regulation passed by the BOS in December 2016, and hopes to sqeak by with majority vote for the General Fund tax measure.  Yet the voices of patients and current growers supplying the medicine to patients were dealt severe restrictions and prohibitions from growing at their current locations, promising to raise prices of the medicine and disrupt communities and relationships formed around the implementation of the Compassionate Use Act of 1996. The County was invited to take part in this radio discussion, but did not return calls.
