Gorin will discuss wildfires at next SIR #53 meeting
Wednesday January 24th 2018 -
Sonoma County Supervisor Susan Gorin will discuss the Sonoma County wildfires at the Jan. 24 luncheon of Sons in Retirement Branch #53 at Oakmont’s East Recreation Center. Gorin’s home was one of two Oakmont homes destroyed by the fires.
Gorin, a supervisor representing the First District since 2012, was elected to the Santa Rosa School Board in 1996 and subsequently served on the Santa Rosa Board of Public Utilities and the Santa Rosa Planning Commission. She then served on the Santa Rosa City Council for six years, two as mayor. She was elected by the Sonoma County Mayors’ and Councilmembers’ Association to represent them on the Executive Board for the Association of Bay Area Governments and Bay Area Air Quality Management District.
A native of Massachusetts, Gorin grew up in Pittsburgh. After high school graduation, she married Joe Gorin and they moved to Boston. Susan became sole support of the family while working at the telephone company while Joe attended M.I.T. The Gorin family moved to Sonoma County in 1982 when Joe transferred to Hewlett Packard. They also moved their electronics business that they started in Colorado to Santa Rosa.
Gorin holds a deep love for the outdoors which was honed by living in the Northeast and Colorado where she learned about the basic need to balance one’s inner compass. This passion grew with her three decades of living in Sonoma County, guiding her service to the community.
SIR #53 meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month at Oakmont’s East Recreation Center, 7902 Oakmont Dr. A social hour starts at 11 a.m. with $23 luncheon at noon catered by A La Heart Catering. Any Oakmont man interested in attending this presentation and/or membership should contact Dave McCuan at 539-3028.
