We made a strong statement about the direction of our county. Together, we stood up for our communities, good paying jobs, open space preservation and our environment. As we move forward, we must continue to stand up for the public’s interest not the corporate special interests.

Agricultural Community Supports Pamela

October 27 , 2010 | Petaluma

The heart of Sonoma County’s agricultural past and future, known as the Petaluma Dairy Beltway, meanders its way to the Sonoma Coast. Along the way a range of agricultural operations are represented, from organic dairy, to artisan butter, to gourmet cheeses, locally grown beef, rabbit, goat, and lamb. The entire production, on over 10,000 acres, supports more than 250 jobs with sales locally and regionally.

Ranchers and farmers from the Roblar, Valley Ford, and Two Rock areas and this important economic region support Mayor Pamela Torliatt for Second District Supervisor. Her agricultural roots go back to growing up on Pepper Lane and participating in Live Oak 4-H. These same agricultural values persist today as Pam and her boyfriend raise grass fed beef right in the middle of the Petaluma Dairy Beltway, giving Pam a real world understanding of the financial and other challenges facing agriculture.

Sonoma County is Not For Sale: A Message from Pamela

October 13 , 2010 | Petaluma

Last week was the latest reporting deadline for financial contributions in the Sonoma County Supervisor’s race. While our campaign reported hundreds of contributions from supporters like you, I thought you should know some shocking information regarding the special interests that are funding our opponent’s campaign. 

These reports show that 64% of his campaign contributions have come from big oil, asphalt, gravel, and other development interests. Valero Oil Company and its staff are funding his campaign at the same time they are funding the campaign to pass Prop 23, which will kill green jobs and lower air quality standards. Asphalt and gravel mining interests have spent thousands bankrolling him including the gravel mining company Syar Industries who has given him over $12,000 to date. 

These are the very same companies that are backing the Dutra Asphalt plant that will endanger our health and our environment, pushing for gravel mining in the Russian River, and supporting the Roblar Road Quarry that will potentially destroy our agricultural and open space protections. We cannot to afford to let these special interests ruin Sonoma County and threaten our quality of life.

There is a lot at stake this election. We deserve leaders that represent OUR interests. My opponent has shown that he has been bought and paid for by these powerful special interests. Over the last 18 years, I’ve proven that I am an experienced, independent leader who works for our values.

Stand up and tell the special interests that Sonoma County is not for sale! We need your help to ensure the leadership in this county is representing you and the values we all share. Join our campaign today by making a contribution here, or emailing us at Devin@vote4pam.net to volunteer by walking or phoning your neighbors. 

You can make a difference this election – elect Pamela Torliatt for Supervisor!

Petaluma's Hard-Working Mayor

October 27, 2009 | Petaluma

pam torliattElected in 2006, Petaluma Mayor Pamela Torliatt has distinguished herself as one of Sonoma County‘s hardest-working public officials. During her brief tenure, Torliatt already has won funding to widen the Marin-Sonoma Narrows and led the City's efforts to obtain open space funding for East Washington Park, Paula Lane, and La Cresta Ridge and Ravine.  These efforts were preceded by a significant victory for Petaluma - fighting successfully against pressures to privatize the newly constructed Ellis Creek Water Recycling facility.  Keeping this important asset in public hands allowed for restoration and creation of 171 acres of wetlands, two miles of trails and resources for science education and local artist communities.
