Get to Know Veronica "Roni" Jacobi, Award Winning Community & Environmental Advocate:

THANK YOU FOR YOUR VOTES, VOLUNTEERING, DONATIONS AND ENCOURAGEMENT! We are excited that Roni and our team is working very hard for Roni to be our next State Senator. We will be in the general election! We have a total of 51,186 votes for the final count from the June primary election. That is a lot of votes! The next major hurdle is fundraising to cover Candidate Statements. For Candidate Statements in english and for some but not all in spanish, it was about $12,000 total. Of course it would be good to fundraise much more for mailings etc. but first things first. Election day for the general election is Tuesday, November 6th, 2018.

In addition to earning community and environmental awards including the Upstream Swimmer Award from SCCA, she also consistently earned A grades on her voting record.

One important reason Roni is running for this position is the incumbent's voting record. Some low points of his record follow.

The incumbent abstained on: limiting open carry, and giving farm workers the same rights on overtime pay as other workers, and preventing the deportation of immigrants for minor drug offenses. He also voted to weaken requirements on the dairy industry to reduce methane pollution, a very potent greenhouse gas. (According to the Air Resources Board, the California dairy industry (liquified manure management and enteric fermentation) emits 45 percent of California’s total methane, which is 84 times more potent than carbon dioxide according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). In contrast, the waste sector emits 20 percent of the state’s methane.) For more details on votes Roni disagrees with please click on the dark blue "Contact" tab above.

Roni is commited to being your public servant and delivering results on these important issues and more!

  • Responsive & Open State and Local Government. Roni LISTENS and cares deeply.
  • Roni's "California Good Jobs, Housing & Climate Plan" will address Climate Change at the speed and scale needed while getting everyone who wants a job to work, and creating new housing near transit so people can have good homes and easily get to the work. We have had the solutions for Climate Disruption available for a long time. We just need leaders with the political will to act. Roni has the will. Roni has been encouraging the Governor, Board of Supervisors and City Councils to issue a Climate Change Major Disaster Declaration to open up funding from Federal and State sources to prepare our district and others at the speed and scale needed to optimize our resiliency and reduce risks of future wildfire disasters and other climate risks.
  • Pension Protection and Reform & Open Bidding
  • Protecting Our Environment, Water & Agriculture
  • Saving Our Parks and Coast & Increasing Access to Open Spaces
  • We need COST EFFECTIVE INFRASTRUCTURE MAINTENANCE.
  • Roni also cares about INCLUSIVITY and TOLERANCE FOR: IMMIGRANTS, LGBQT & MEDICAL AND RECREATIONAL CANNABIS and about PROTECTING OUR COMMUNITIES & QUALITY OF LIFE.

"THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for your support during my four years serving on the Santa Rosa City Council! I am very happy to continue living in this wonderful area, and to continue our partnership on working towards a better future.

I will be donating over 25% of my salary to non-profits. During these times, when some of us are experiencing hardships, I want to give to our local groups to help strengthen the support network and give a "green strings attached" incentive and boost to non-profit efforts to create a better future for all of us." Roni

SEND YOUR SUGGESTIONS to improve OUR government to Roni: VJacobi@sonic.net

Roni stood firm during budget decisions to encourage all to contribute their fair share to reducing expenditures so jobs could be saved, and services maintained at safe levels.

She kept a watchful eye on upcoming revenue prediction shortfalls and focused on balancing the budget while keeping important functions working. Roni insisted on OPEN BIDDING For Trash & Recycling Services & STOOD FIRM FOR THE BEST DEAL FOR THE SANTA ROSA RATEPAYERS. SHE WILL DO THAT FOR US STATE-WIDE TOO!

Keeping as many existing staff employed through difficult times, and especially retaining young talent was and is a very important focus to her.

Roni also was the first councilmember TO CREATE A PLAN and start discussions ON PENSION protection and REFORM and also brought forward Local Hire policies to keep our community's money circulating in our economy. She spearheaded efforts on Local Purchasing Preference, and continued building support for Clean Local Energy production to generate many new jobs and become a strong and reliable economic engine, while addressing our energy needs in ways that will help meet our greenhouse gas emmission reduction goals.

Roni strongly supports LOCAL AGRICULTURE and cutting red tape and incentivizing local food production, to make California, and especially our district, FOOD SELF-SUFFICIENT. Luther Burbank was right about this area being an amazing place for growing plants. With many families struggling, Roni will help link food producers receiving incentives to agencies feeding our hungry.

Additionally, Roni Jacobi believes that the way our area guides development in the next few years will be critical to our quality of life for generations. To continue a traditional subdivision approach will continue to result in forced reliance on automobiles, excessive water use, and destruction of greenbelts.

Roni will continue bringing fresh ideas for improving and increasing affordable housing by clustering growth around schools, shopping, and public transportation hubs as well as provide safe and attractive pedestrian and bicycle routes.

Roni Jacobi is committed to public safety, and will continue working hard to maintain effective law enforcement, fire and emergency services in all parts of California, and especially our district, including creating more effective gang and violence prevention work with a greater emphasis on working with the community and empowering youth.

Roni also supports MONEY WISE ROADWAY REPAIRS before it is too late, and improved public transportation, including alternative transportation linkages that work well with the SMART train, and more and safer pedestrian and bicycle routes throughout our area. With gas prices predicted to possibly increase to $7 per gallon in the future, people will want and need more extensive and flexible public transit and ridesharing. Increased evening and weekend buses should serve people with disabilities, people working second shifts, elders, students with late classes at junior colleges and universities, youths, and those seeking social or other activities all around our big and beautiful state and counties.

Roni Jacobi believes that one of the best ways to solve problems is for neighbors to sit down with neighbors. She works with community groups to address neighborhood problems including traffic, parking, and graffiti. Roni works for solutions that take everyone's concerns into account. Roni knows how to listen.

Roni Jacobi believes that our water and waste water systems throughout our communities need serious attention to support our current residents & future development in an environmentally responsible way that minimizes risks and helps get our waterways back to their former magnificence and abundance of salmon and natural beauty. Her skill and experience as a Professional Engineer (PE) is valuable as our state and local government works to meet the needs of current and future residents.

Again, please go to and click on the dark blue Donate/Help or Contribute button at the top of this page and donate to the campaign and give us the information we need for the campaign reporting forms, and/or volunteer to help with the campaign. We need you. This is a very tough race. You can make a difference! If voters hear our message they will respond, but Roni needs our help NOW.

As a Former Santa Rosa Councilwoman, as an engineer, as a business owner, as a mother, as a former foster parent to six children, as an end of life caregiver for over seven years for her grandfather and father and step-father, and as a community volunteer, Veronica "Roni" Jacobi PE has proven she cares deeply AND gets things done to make our communities better.

Let's get Roni working for us!
