Wine Country Fire survivors, county officials blast legislation

Brad Sherwood, a father whose Santa Rosa home was demolished in October’s Tubbs Fire, said Wednesday he’d rather think about which countertops to choose for his family’s new home, or when his 6- and 8-year-old children will be able to return to their school.

“Instead, we’re talking about policy being developed in Sacramento that directly affects current and future wildfire survivors, without the input of my local government,” he said.

Sherwood joined other Wine Country wildfire survivors and officials from three North Bay counties to condemn a measure they say is winding its way through the Legislature at the 11th hour to shift liability from utility corporations to homeowners.
