Chris Coursey, the award-winning reporter and news columnist for the Press Democrat and former spokesman for the SMART rail project, today announced his candidacy for Santa Rosa City Council.
“Santa Rosa needs strong leaders who come to the table with ideas, not ideology,” he said. “I look forward to being an independent voice on the council, and will represent our entire city, including our youth, our seniors, our diverse ethnic communities and neighborhoods on both sides of Highway 101.”
A resident of Santa Rosa for 33 years, Coursey said choosing this city as his home has been key to his success in life, and it’s time for him to give back.
