KN HeadshotIn an epic meeting of more than nine hours, the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors covered a number of controversial topics yesterday. Among them, an agreement to put significant reforms of IOLERO, the police oversight office, on the ballot in November.
According to Supervisor Shirlee Zane, hundreds of people showed up remotely to talk about this issue. She called some of the commenters "uncivil" and "rude" in an interview with KSRO, but nevertheless, Zane was one of five supervisors who voted unanimously to place a slightly altered version of the "Evelyn Cheatham Ordinance" on the ballot in November. It seeks to strengthen IOLERO's independence and funding, and is named after a local activist who passed away late last year.
Here's Shirlee Zane's interview with Pat Kerrigan. The discussion of IOLERO begins about 3:45 in.
Five years after the creation of Sonoma County’s first-ever law enforcement auditor’s office, the Board of Supervisors late Thursday agreed unanimously to place a measure on the November ballot that, if passed, would greatly strengthen the oversight body and increase its funding.
