  3. Speaking Event
    First District Supervisor Carre Brown has served the County since 2009. For details of her talk click HERE. Brown said it was often difficult to find solutions but it is essential to find common ground to try to solve the many vital issues in the County that affect peoples' lives. Groundwater and sustainability are two top issues that need to be prioritized in the future. Brown made a special plea for people to participate in the Census, saying that over the past decade Mendocino County missed out on millions of federal dollars that could have gone to roads, social services and schools because we were undercounted in 2010.
