Sonoma County Mayors Issue Statement Surrounding Significant Allegations Against Windsor Mayor
Sonoma County – On Thursday, April 8th, the San Francisco Chronicle released a special report providing detailed allegations of sexual assault by Dominic Foppoli, the Mayor of the Town of Windsor. In response to the credibility and significance of the allegations, Sonoma County Mayors of Cloverdale, Cotati, Healdsburg, Petaluma, Rohnert Park, Santa Rosa, Sebastopol and Sonoma demand Dominic Foppoli resign immediately from the Windsor Town Council and all other elected and appointed positions and roles held with special districts and regional boards.
Sonoma County Mayors honor the incredible courage of the victims of sexual assault to share their stories publicly and acknowledge the individual leadership it took for them to come forward. Sonoma County Mayors treat the allegations seriously and stand firmly united as leaders in our community against any and all forms of sexual violence. As your local elected leaders, we are committed to ending sexual violence in Sonoma County and believe the actions by a fellow Mayor should not be tolerated.
Sonoma County Mayors strongly support the efforts of organizations like Verity and encourages every citizen to actively engage in public and private efforts to end sexual violence, including holding conversations about what sexual violence is, how to prevent it, how to help survivors connect with crucial counseling and other support services, and how every segment of our society can work together to better address sexual violence.
