She was a positive influence on the Santa Rosa City Council, and has earned the support of community leaders 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 returning Council member."

"I fully agree with Veronica Jacobi's campaign statement. The issues she discusses, and on which she has made progress - climate change, homelessness, education - are of vital importance to the present and future life of the Santa Rosa community. Not only do I agree with her stand on these issues, but I see that she has the education, skills and experience (former Santa Rosa City Council member) to develop realistic ways for tackling climate change, homelessness and education. I look forward to helping her accomplish her goals. It is a pleasure for me to give Veronica Jacobi my endorsement for Santa Rosa City Council. Peace."
