Santa Rosa’s new mayor is beginning his first year in office. Tom Schwedhelm is Santa Rosa’s former police chief and was voted into office by his fellow city council members. Reporter Adia White talked with him about his top priorities; homelessness and how to rebuild Santa Rosa after the 2017 Wildfires, with a special emphasis on affordable housing.
Mayor Tom Schwedhelm also participated in the county’s annual point in time homeless count, which we reported on yesterday. To learn more about that and the city’s downtown development plans visit norcalpublicmedia.org
