Testimonials For Veronica "Roni" Jacobi for California Senate

"Roni Jacobi has integrity, walks her talk and can't be bought."
- Norman Solomon, Fmr. US Congress candidate and author

"I have always known Roni to vote and act in the best interests of the environment, the community and fiscal responsibility. She was a positive influence on the Santa Rosa City Council, and has earned the support of community leaders and organizations in Sonoma County because she has always acted on her sound moral principles. She cares about the diversity of our communities, fighting discrimination and working hard to provide affordable housing and meaningful jobs. She has fought to protect our natural environment and open spaces. And she knows that government and elected representatives must listen to and respond to the public. Roni Jacobi will make an excellent State Senator."
- Matt Maguire, Former Petaluma City Councilmember

"I support Roni Jacobi for State Senate. She is a strong independent environmentalist with clear humanitarian values. A person much needed in Sacramento. "
- Professor Political Sociology SSU*, Director Emeritus Project Censored*

"I support Roni Jacobi for State Senate. Other candidates talk about the environment and jobs, but Roni doesn't just talk the talk, she lives the talk. As a Santa Rosa City Council- woman, Roni gave the most consistent support for environmental programs to improve public transportation options, including safe bicycling routes, to supporting water and energy conservation, enhancing recycling, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. ALL of these programs are job creators. I know that Roni will always be on the right side of the fight to prevent destabilizing climate change."
- Jane Nielson, Sonoma County Water Coalition, Sebastopol Water Information Group (SWiG)

"My vote is with Roni because she really cares about our future and the sustainability of our communities. She will make decisions that are beneficial for all of us."
- Jennifer Diaz, Nurse

"Roni is very dedicated to protecting our environment and working for the people. She is honest and hard working and isn't influenced by big business or big money. She does what's best for us and our communities."
- David Nylund, Retired

"Few American politicians are fully aware of what Climate Change means to the future of our nation and even less American politicians are totally committed to do everything necessary to save humanity and the environment from massive destruction by Climate Change. Veronica "Roni" Jacobi is one of those rare politicians that are aware of the immense threat of Climate Change and wants to do whatever it takes to avert the threat. We are glad to endorse Roni Jacobi for California State Senator for District 2."
- Jorge Rebagliati, Business Owner, Climate Change Major Disaster Declaration Campaign, Sonoma County Climate Activist Network*

"Roni inspired us to create the Sonoma County Water Coalition in 2004. She has always taken the lead on the Ďbig issuesí before they become the political issues of the day, and she keeps working on these issues behind the scenes. She also pays close attention to the way political decisions affect real people and works tirelessly to help those who feel disenfranchised."†
- Stephen Fuller-Rowell, Co-founder Sonoma County Water Coalition*

"Roni is strongly committed to green growth and clean energy and creating living wage green jobs while providing training and public subsidies for workers displaced by the phase out of fossil fuels."
- Martin J. Bennett, Instructor Emeritus of History Santa Rosa Jr. College*

"Roni Jacobi is the best candidate to address our most urgent issue: climate change. She would be a big improvement over the incumbent in the state Senate. As a mechanical engineer with years of experience working on energy and environmental issues, she will bring rare technical expertise to the Senate. Her potential to lead the Senate on climate-related issues is shown by her many accomplishments and her long record of civic participation and activism.

Also, I trust Roni Jacobi to honor her oath to defend the Constitution and use our taxes wisely, unlike Mike McGuire. In 2016 he voted for AB 2844, a bill that created a new felony to protect a foreign country from politically motivated economic pressure, thus chilling free speech. This bill had no value whatsoever to Californians and added no new protections to those already in place. The ACLU said the bill was unconstitutional because it violated our First Amendment rights. As a member of the Appropriations Committee, he was made aware by the Finance Department of its potential projected cost to the California government of over a million dollars a year, and could have killed the bill on the basis of cost. But, like most other politicians, he put campaign contributions (and, in his case, family ties) above principle."
- Esther Riley, Retired

"Roni is concerned and knowledgable about (and very active around) environmental issues. She's also strong on issues of social justice and peace. And she isn't beholden to powerful and monied interests. And she's intelligent."
- Susan Lamont, Landscape Designer

"Roni Jacobi has the intellect, experience, and imagination to work towards solutions for today's increasingly complex problems. She will be a compassionate and devoted female voice among the North Coast's male dominated representation."
- Omar Eljumaily, Software Engineer

"I worked on Roniís campaign for Assembly in 2016 and know her to be very principled, one of many progressive candidates around the country running against mainstream Democrats, saying that we can do better. Her expertise as an engineer on environmental issues makes her a natural to help guide the Senate on climate change issues as she did when on the City Council of Santa Rosa. Itís people like Roni who will help transform the California Democratic Party into the truly progressive force it should be."
- Stephen Bingham, Attorney

"Roni Jacobi is the most selfless person I know. She will do anything and everything to protect our future and ensure a healthy and happy planet for generations to come. She is not afraid to ruffle feathers to get things done and she canít be bought. Roni is focused on solutions and tackles tough issues. She makes decisions based on what is best for ALL of us and not special interests."
- Becky Como, Nurse

"Roni Jacobi is a diligent public servant and always follows through on her promises and takes action to move her vision of a healthy planet and community forward. She truly walks the walk and follows it up with community organizing. I support Roni because I believe she will do the job in the best possible way. She cares deeply about the community that she serves."
- Stefanie Auld, Human Resources for Solar Company

"Roni is very knowledgeable, compassionate, and persistent. She believes in listening, direct effective action, and that one can make a difference politically, all for the greater good."
- David Gougler, Graphics and Web Designer
