Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Affordable housing: Healdsburg has the highest median home price in Sonoma County and is pricing out many people - families, seniors, people who grew up here. I’m supportive of efforts to build affordable housing and I support Measure P.
  • Downtown parking: The City hired a consulting firm to address the parking problem. At a recent council meeting Walker Parking Consultants presented their recommendations regarding addressing the parking issue. I support their recommendations.
  • Balancing the needs of tourists and locals: We need to support storefronts that are enjoyed by locals and create balance between resident and tourism-based businesses in our downtown area and beyond.

Evelyn Mitchell is proud to be running for City Council in Healdsburg. She is a third generation Californian, born in San Francisco and raised in Palo Alto. Evelyn moved to Healdsburg over 20 years ago. She and her husband, Tom O’Hair, were married in their backyard, with close friends and family sharing the day with them. Evelyn and Tom live with their two “perfect” rescue dogs, Buddy and Eli, a few blocks from where Tom grew up and where his Mom stills lives.

Since coming to live in Healdsburg in 1998, Evelyn has started her own consulting business, earned an Executive MBA and volunteered on the board of the Humane Society of Sonoma County for over 10 years. Evelyn has been running her management and accounting consulting business since 2005 and has had many years of corporate experience in management and accounting prior to that. Evelyn’s education, non-profit leadership and business background have provided her with the experience of building relationships and helping clients define and achieve their goals. Working mainly with family-owned businesses, where there are unique challenges and dynamics, Evelyn sees similar dynamics in running a city. The citizens of Healdsburg feel ownership of their city and want to be part of the decision-making process. Evelyn listens to all sides of the situation and can help achieve clarity, consensus and direction, while adding her own thoughts and ideas to the mix.

As Board President of the Humane Society for five years, Evelyn was directly involved in helping restore the Healdsburg Animal Shelter. Through this process, she experienced first-hand the collaboration the City provided to the Humane Society in order to facilitate bringing this asset back to the community. Evelyn’s experience with the City Manager, City Council and the Police Department was very positive and confirmed her confidence in our city government.
