The Sonoma County Board of Supervisors decided Tuesday to delay a decision about strengthening the county’s law enforcement watchdog agency. The board heard about an hour of public comment at this week’s meeting. The vast majority of speakers were in favor of putting an ordinance on the November ballot that would expand law enforcement transparency and oversight. KRCB’s Adia White Reports.
The proposed ordinance is named in memory of Evelyn Cheatham, visionary Sonoma County chef, mentor for at-risk youth, and social justice advocate. Read her obituary in Sonoma Magazine.
