Citizens for Accountability 
A group of concerned Sonoma County voters will hold a town-hall meetings in the 5th Supervisorial District on Thursday, Nov. 21st.  The Citizens for Accountability has invited Supervisor Efren Carrillo to explain his July 13thbehavior - his second arrest in less than a year - to his constituents.  The public is encouraged to attend.

Efren Carrillo has declined the invitation due to scheduling conflicts.

In the very early hours of Saturday, July 13th, Supervisor Carrillo was arrested wearing only socks and underwear after a woman called 911 twice to report that someone tried to break into her bedroom through the window.  His last arrest has resulted in a charge of “peeking,” a serious misdemeanor.  This was Supervisor Carrillo’s second arrest in a ten month period.

Constituents in the 5th District are entitled to hear Supervisor Carrillo’s explanation on this issue, and he is entitled to a forum in which to make such a presentation.  There has been no explanation at all from Carrillo, save a brief 8 minute announcement of his alcoholism at a Board of Supervisor’s meeting and constituents in his district wonder if he can continue to serve us effectively.
“We are tired of waiting for Supervisor Carrillo to step up and address the people he is supposed to be working for.  We have waited a long time for some explanation for this incomprehensible behavior which reflects so poorly on the County” said Alice Chan a 5th District Constituent and a member of the group.
A straw poll will be taken at each meeting.  The general public is invited as well as all interested 5th District voters

Please attend this Thursday, Nov. 21st - 6:30 – 8:00 p.m., Sebastopol Grange Hall, 6000 Sebastopol Ave., Sebastopol

Here's what the Barlow has been waiting for;


The Grand Opening celebration of The Barlow on

November 2, 2013 from 4:00 - 9:00pm.

The Grand Opening will take the shape of a street fair with artisan and food vendors lining the streets of McKinley Avenue and live music from Sol Horizon, The Louies, and the Blane Lyon Band featuring Zap Mama.  Additional entertainment and surprises will be announced as we solidify involvement.

Street Closure. Vendor booths will line McKinley Street, leaving the sidewalk and space in front of businesses open to pedestrian traffic.  McKinley Street will be closed after 2pm the day of the event and any cars remaining on the street after 2pm will be towed.  The Street Fair management team will give ample warning to those parked on McKinley in the hours before the event through signs and flyer distribution.

Parking for the Street Fair will be on a first come, first served basis. We don't anticipate any issues with congestion, given our ample parking on campus and surrounding streets.

Safety First. We have contracted with a highly professional and well-trusted security team to oversee the event and ensure the safety and enjoyment of all attendees.

The Barlow Street Fair is free and open to the public.
