Endorsements and Testimonials

"Roni Jacobi has integrity, walks her talk and can't be bought. She would be a big improvement over the incumbent in the state Assembly." - Norman Solomon, Fmr. US Congress candidate, Author

"I've worked with Roni since 1998, know her, trust her, value her intellect, leadership and listening skills, persistence and compassion. She cares deeply about the human condition and our Earth." - Marsha Vas Dupre, Fmr. Santa Rosa Councilwoman

"I have worked with Roni Jacobi on issues in Sonoma County. I respect her honesty and integrity. She will hear her constituents. Not only will she hear them, but will work hard to protect their rights and what is right for California." - Karen Hudson

"Roni inspired us to create the Sonoma County Water Coalition in 2004. She has always taken the lead on the ‘big issues’ 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

"I support Roni Jacobi for State Assembly. Other candidates talk about the environment and job, but Roni doesn't just talk the talk, she lives the talk. As a Santa Rosa City Councilmember, Roni gave the most consistent support for environmental programs to: improve public transportation options, including safe bicycling routes, to support water and energy conservation, enhance recycling, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. ALL of these programs were and are job creators." - Jane Nielson

"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. As a mechanical engineer with years of experience working on energy and environmental issues, she will bring rare technical expertise to the Assembly. Her potential to lead the Assembly on climate-related issues is shown by her many accomplishments and her long record of civic participation and activism." - Esther Riley

"Jacobi is more of our type of progressive, with a relentless focus on climate change impacts. Her supporters often highlight that Jacobi is the only candidate in the state of California who signed on with a pledge that would ramp the climate crisis to a World War II level of national action. The former Santa Rosa city councilwoman helped that town create its landmark Climate Action Plan, and she was raised by her grandparents, who were Republican Austrian immigrants. That’s kind of temptingly exotic for these parts, and seals the deal. Jacobi for Assembly!" ( - Pacific Sun

"For her sustained commitment to working on solutions for environmental issues and building community, I support Roni Jacobi. 50+yrs working to save and protect California native plants, wetlands, and coastal access. The only candidate I can support in this election with no qualms or regrets." - Linda Curry

"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

"Roni has shown time and again that she cares about acting on public concerns with policies that build a sustainable economy that's reliable." - Maria Lewytzkyj

"Marc Levine is too conservative, supports special interests, and is horrible on environmental issues. Roni Jacobi is a strong environmentalist and is not answerable to special interests like Marc Levine." - Omar Eljumaily

(It's)"a pleasure not to have to pick the least of two bad candidates and to be able to support a great candidate." - Yvette Williams Van Aggelen

"Smart. Driven. Educated. Working for others. Getting things done. Future driven. Earth Driven. Children driven. Environment driven." - Jerry Ludwig

"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

"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

I support Roni Jacobi because I believe that she will be the best for our district." - Jan Bauman

"I support Roni Jacobi because I know that she is committed to sustainability in Sonoma County and beyond." - Lindsay Dyson

"The rate of global warming requires an urgent response if we are to try and prevent climate catastrophe. Roni understands this." - Jane Vosburg

"Roni is very knowledgeable, believes in direct action, and believes one can make a difference politically, all for the greater good." - David Gougler
