After a hard-fought two-and-a-half-year campaign by North Bay Organizing Project’s housing arm, the Sonoma County Tenants Union, in partnership with Legal Aid – which was strengthened by the steadfast support of North Bay Jobs with Justice; the North Bay Labor Council; NAACP-Santa Rosa, Sonoma County Branch; and other allied organizations – Petaluma City Council finally passed a permanent tenant protection ordinance!
The ordinance passed 4-2 on the first reading on April 17, with Mayor Kevin McDonnell recusing himself as a landlord and Council members Mike Healy and Karen Nau voting no. The final vote to adopt the ordinance is Monday, May 15.
