Happy New Year!

As we begin the New Year, I would like to commend the work of The Observer Corps and the excellent Annual Retrospective on Our Tuolumne County Board of Supervisors and Sonora City Council. This was a wonderful opportunity to witness Democracy in Action and to share observations with our elected officials and the public.

The year 2022 holds many opportunities for us.
