It seems they pulled punches failing to ask about SDC and who she has been discussing commercial development plans with.

Why didn't anybody from the SUN ask her about SDC and who she met with to discuss development options? Most agree it was a high-profile local lobbyist/hotel developer and they certainly were discussing commercial options and their feasiblity. Winery, Hotel, casino? We know the Miwoks are back in the Valley performing sacred rituals on ancient acorn trees.

"She also acknowledged having discussions about what to do with the property should the center be closed or scaled back. She declined to identify those taking part in the conversations."

Gorin takes money from the Indians. Darius is the one who brought the Indians to Sonoma to shop for casinos. Darius is a well known campaign fundraiser for the Democratic Party...if Gorin wants the gravy, do you think she will speak up against the hand that could potentially feed her? Thats how Valerie Brown got hooked she wanted to run for State Offices and Darius can pull strings. Same with Joann Sanders she also had aspirations for bigger offices. one minute she speaks up against Darius monopolizing the newspapers the next minute she is standing at Sonoma City Council podium supporting his hotel. Flip Flop? Make sense?" No. But in the world of controlling purse strings and Pay to Play crony favors it makes perfect sense. Sell out your soul and constituents, stop speaking your heart and mind, sit down and shut up if you want more gravy.

Yes, Joanne flip-flopped just like Ken but its starting to appear like Gorin was on the wrong side here all along considering her silence while the most vulnerable of her constituents are steam-rolled.

Gorin was assisted in her campaign a great deal by her close friend Susan Moore who is the President of the Friends of the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria. Susan appears on Gorin's list of donors in campain records. Moore also appears at a Sonoma fundraiser for Gorin and Gallian City Council candidate. However Moore not only raised funds for Gorin but I understand helped out in other ways during the election campaign. Perhaps Gorin owns favors to several of these conflicted interests of Darius Anderson either directly or indirectly?
