City Officials

Santa Rosa was incorporated as a City by the State Legislature on March 16, 1868. Although City Government has played a key role in the City of Santa Rosa's development, the true wealth of this City resides with the creative and entrepreneurial spirit of its pioneering citizens. In the memory of these pioneers, today's City officials are honored to lead Santa Rosa.
