Mayor Chris Coursey and Council Member Tom Schwedhelm
The Rotary Club of Santa Rosa is fortunate to have the Mayor of Santa Rosa and Council Member Tom Schwedhelm as our guests on Wednesday, October 25th. They will guide us through what we know now and what is being planned to rebuild our city.
Mayor Coursey took office on December 6, 2016. He had served on the Santa Rosa city council prior to his position as mayor. His professional life was spent in journalism, most recently at The Press Democrat. He left that position in 2007 to work on the Sonoma–Marin Area Rail Transit, or SMART train project, and was elected to the city council in 2014.
Council Member Schwedhelm served with the Santa Rosa Police Department from 1983 until his retirement in 2013 as its Chief. He was then elected to the city council and has been appointed by the mayor to spearhead the massive recovery ahead.
Our president Julia Parranto will then unveil the plan our club will undertake to help raise funds for the recovery. Rotarians worldwide follow the motto of Service Above Self and now it will be applied as never before in our own backyard.
