Sonoma is doing well economically and the city has to continue to build on that. Sebastiani Theatre and a public swimming pool are other priorities. Ken Brown offered up these ideas as he wrapped up his first day of another term as Sonoma mayor, after being voted into the position by the city council at Monday's meeting.
Councilman Tom Rouse is the new mayor pro tem.
Brown was mayor twice before—in 2001 and 2009. He is the longest serving city councilmember, having been elected in 1998.
In June this year, Brown told Patch writer Julie Weinstock in this article that he really wanted the job of mayor again. Weinstock asked him to "sell Sonoma in a sentence."
His response: "Right now, in the 21st century, there is no better place to live."
