About the Honorary Board

Rebuild NorthBay Foundation is committed to being a resource to community members and local government for the next five to seven years. It is crucial to the success of our organization to have support from every elected official who was directly affected by the October fires.

Rebuild NorthBay’s Honorary Board is a platform for counties and cities to share successes and challenges in a post-disaster environment. The Honorary Board is Co-Chaired by Representative Mike Thompson and California Governor Gavin Newsom. The board includes elected officials from Lake, Mendocino, Napa and Sonoma Counties, as well as cities within the region.

“As our community continues to recover from last year’s terrible fires, Rebuild North Bay has been a critical partner in that effort. It is my honor to join with them as we work together to tackle this process from all angles and continue bringing every resource to bear for those impacted by the fires. ”
