Noreen Evans to speak at Current Events Forum

Current Events Forum is honored to have Noreen Evans give a report on her first year as a member of the California State Assembly. The meeting will take place on Friday, Nov. 18, at 1 p.m. in the West Recreation Center in Oakmont.

Prior to her election to the Assembly in November 2004, Evans served in local government for eleven years. As a Planning Commissioner and two-term City Council member in Santa Rosa, she provided leadership on issues of waterways policy, campaign finance reform, and childcare. In her Assembly District she represents the counties of Sonoma, Napa and Solano.

Evans has lived and worked in Sonoma County since 1982. During her years as an attorney, her career focused on civil litigation and appeals. She received her J.D. from the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law in 1981. After graduation, she studied international business at the University of Salzburg and worked in Ireland at a Dublin firm of solicitors. She received her BA in Government from California State University, Sacramento in 1978.

Her Assembly Committee assignments this first year have been Chair of the Human Services Committee and Select Committee on Wine. She also serves as a member of Committees on Budget, Judiciary and Veterans Affairs, as well as several subcommittees focusing on Natural Resources, Foster Care, and Gun Violence Prevention.

Members of Current Events Forum will learn more about the legislation Evans introduced in her first session in Sacramento, a total of 22 bills. She will explain how some bills are considered placeholders in the two-year legislative cycle, and she will also update the group on which of her bills have been signed into law.

There will be no meeting on the last Friday of November, as it is the day after Thanksgiving

Oakmont residents and their friends are welcome. Further information may be obtained from Hy Liebling, 539-4034 ( or Maureen Latimer, 537-7901.
