Mayor Natalie Rogers Headshot and Title

On Dec. 13, Santa Rosa City Council selected Natalie Rogers to serve as the City of Santa Rosa’s mayor through 2024. 

Toward the end of the Council meeting, after the declaration of the final results of the election were approved by Council, and final commentaries were made by outgoing Council Members Tom Schwedhelm and John Sawyer, the new council members were officially sworn in and convened to select amongst themselves, per the City Charter, a new mayor and vice mayor. 

After 17 minutes of deliberation and four rounds of Council voting, the seven-member City Council selected Natalie Rogers to serve as mayor of Santa Rosa for a two-year term. Mayor Natalie Rogers is the first Black mayor in the City’s history.

“I’m grateful to my colleagues for appointing me to this position, for my constituents for electing me, and for all Santa Rosans for building a great community in the North Bay.” said Mayor Natalie Rogers. “I’m ready to roll up my sleeves, work with my partners in Council, and continue to find real solutions to the issues facing the City and region, such as prevalent homelessness, economic vibrancy and equity, sustainability, and housing for all.”

In her first order of business with the mayor’s gavel, Mayor Natalie Rogers called for the selection of the vice mayor. Council Member Dianna MacDonald was the sole nominee and was selected to the position by unanimous consent. Vice Mayor MacDonald will serve in a one-year term through December 2023. 

The next City Council meeting is set for Jan. 10, 2023. For more information about the Santa Rosa City Council, go to srcity.org/CityCouncil.
