County of Sonoma

The County of Sonoma is governed by the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors and is comprised of 26 departments/agencies that provide a full range of services to the community through its 4,000+ employees. Sonoma County government has a history of providing excellent and responsive public service while operating under sound fiscal principles. This is achieved in a climate of respect and collegiality.

The County enjoys stability in leadership, with four of the five Board members serving a second, third or fifth term. This is further demonstrated by a strong group of department heads. The department heads routinely team with middle management on a variety of successful projects. Historically, labor relations have been stable, with most employees working under long-term MOUs; however, over the next few years, the County will be going through the contract negotiation process with the majority of the bargaining units.
