My name is Gerard Giudice and I am running for City Council in the upcoming November election for 2018. Eighteen years ago, through the help of my previous employer and mentor Catherine Munson I was able to purchase a home in the C section five houses away from my Mother. When I asked how I could re-pay her for her kindness she told me to join a Rotary Club, and I did. Through that community service and others, I became involved with and I discovered all of you!
While we raised our two daughters Katarina and Isabella, my wife Suzanne and I became a part of this beautiful community that has welcomed us, our family business (with my long-time business partner Bill Pettibone) Sally Tomatoes, my fun band Rotten Tomatoes and all of the other organizations, causes and groups we have been a part of. Rohnert Park has allowed me to live a life fully expressed and now I want to pay that back and be a part of Rohnert Park at it’s most defining time since it’s inception. Nobility of purpose is my call to action. I love this town and I will work tirelessly to see Rohnert Park fulfill it’s potential as the best town in Sonoma County!
