Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Expand housing options for all residents, ensuring that growth is focused in our downtown areas and at our SMART rail stations, white continuing to preserve open space.
  • Modernize our dilapidated infrastructure by investing in our underfunded roads.
  • Combat climate change by encouraging and expanding local solar generation and electric vehicle purchases.

Jack’s local roots run deep. He was born at the old Sutter Hospital on Chanate Road and attended Saint Eugene’s and Montgomery High School. After graduating from UC Berkeley, he returned to Santa Rosa. Driven by his passion for public service and our city, Jack now devotes his time to solving real problems locally: 

  • When the Roseland community called for a public library, Jack coordinated across multiple county agencies and led an effort to raise the funds needed. 

  • When our city faced tension between law enforcement officers and local youth, Jack overcame bureaucratic obstacles and organized the Roseland Cup Soccer Tournament, a now-annual soccer match that brings our community together.

  • When Winter rolls around, and many who suffer from homelessness are left without shelter, Jack’s charity Warm for the Holidays works in partnership with local businesses to provide thousands of coats and sleeping bags for those who need them.

As our councilmember, Jack will bring this same energy, hard work, and creative thinking to the table.

Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

Jack Tibbetts understands that Santa Rosa must adapt to change, while still preserving the character that makes our city so special. He knows that if we act now, we can define the Santa Rosa that we want, rather than letting unaffordable housing costs and rising population growth define us.

Addressing Santa Rosa's Housing Crisis


Like many cities in the Bay Area, Santa Rosa faces an unprecedented housing affordability crisis. However, the situation is not hopeless. If action is taken, we can define the Santa Rosa that we want, rather than allowing rising housing costs and population growth define us.

Environmental Platform


A comprehensive environmental platform covering transportation, water conservation, solar reflection rooftops, permeable parking lots, reducing pollution in storm water runoff, the Santa Rosa bikeshare program, and Pay As You Save high-efficiency water fixtures.
