Payback is a b*tch. Rohnert Park de thrones Jake MacKenzie.
Jake McKenzie was passed over for nomination to the Sonoma County Transportation Commission and the SMART board. at the January 22, 2019 Rohnert Park City Council meeting. Jake MacKenzie, long time council member and chairman of the MTC CASA Compact committee shocked the community on 1/8/2019 when he approved the CASA compact which among other things could cost Rohnert Park 15 million dollars per year. He did not inform his fellow board members during the two years of negotiations at MTC. Although fellow council people tried to cover up their disappointment, all agreed unanimously that he abused his responsibility to Rohert Park citizens. This marks the end of an era in Sonoma County regional politics for Jake MacKenzie even though he will still serve his term as director for MTC.
