The five candidates in the race for 4th District Sonoma County Supervisor agree the county’s road network is in bad shape. They differ slightly in their solutions for fixing the 1,370-miles of pavement that is consistently ranked as the worst in the Bay Area.
At a forum on roads that brought about 40 people to the Windsor Grange on Wednesday, current 4th District Supervisor Mike McGuire said that the poor condition of the network is a result of years of underfunding, declining sales and property tax revenue and a formula for distributing gas tax that favors urban counties with fewer miles of roads.
