The event was not only an opportunity to showcase some of the fine food, drinks, and entertainment that Sonoma County has to offer, but it was also an honorary swearing-in ceremony for Senator McGuire in his new role as President Pro Tempore of the California Senate, a leadership position within the State government that is second in line to the Governor. (Technically the actual swearing-in ceremony occurred a little over a week prior in Sacramento.) This is the first time in well over 100 years that a representative from the North Coast — typically defined as the coastal part of California from north of San Francisco to the Oregon border — is serving in this role.

Omar has been a longtime supporter of Senator McGuire, who grew up right here in Sonoma County and is truly dedicated to our Northern California communities. Like Senator McGuire, Omar is dedicated to justice and democracy, and would serve with integrity if elected.
