Rohnert Park City Council To Approve District Elections

Rohnert Park’s City Council is set to approve a plan for district elections for seats on the city council starting this November. The plan would call for three of the seats to be decided for district elections this year and the remaining two starting in 2022. The plan would also leave Councilwoman Gina Belforte without a seat to defend as her term ends this year and also gives Mayor Joe Callinan and Councilman Jake Mackenzie easy paths to reelection. The open seat created is in the southwestern part of the city including much of the latino population. Council will meet tonight at 5 PM at city hall.
