It is inspiring to see so many people coming together and forming a united front for causes such as immigration and gun control. However, because of the large number of people taking advantage of this, the purpose behind these walkouts is being tainted. It is important for those who aren’t invested in these causes to reconsider leaving class for the sole purpose of not taking money away from our schools.

I am in full support of anyone who stands up for what they believe in, but it is extremely disappointing to see students taking advantage of these causes to get out of class.

Choosing a sheriff

EDITOR: For the first time in more than a quarter of a century, we are fortunate in Sonoma County to have a contested race for sheriff during which the public can have a discussion with candidates about their vision for the office. We have three candidates, all of whom are qualified, all with different visions for the office and different management styles.

The Community Advisory Council for the Sonoma County Independent Office for Law Enforcement Review and Outreach, the Sonoma County Commission on the Status of Women, the Sonoma County Commission on Human Rights and the League of Women Voters of Sonoma County are co-sponsoring a forum and debate for the candidates at 6:30 p.m. on April 30 at the Santa Rosa Veterans Building.

We encourage the public to attend and to submit questions for the candidates. Questions may be submitted to jmbrown.iolerocac@gmail.com, emiliacarbajal.cac@gmail.com or jim.duffy.iolerocac@gmail.com. The deadline to submit question is this coming Friday.
