“Dorothy Beattie has the financial background, community service experience and level head we need on the Santa Rosa City Council in the years ahead.  As we work through our city’s budgetary challenges, it is imperative to have someone on the Council with the ability to dive deep and thoroughly evaluate our situation and ways to effectively move forward if we are to continue to sustain resources toward homelessness, affordable housing, public safety and other essential services.” - John Sawyer, Santa Rosa City Councilmember and former Mayor

“We met Dorothy in 2011, we were just married, going to school, living paycheck to paycheck. She was very gracious and became our first landlord. She was very helpful and supportive to us and we appreciated how she thought things through and gave us advice that helped us become homeowners. When we were ready to buy a house, she helped us. She has such a big heart and compassion for people and we are glad to count her as our friend. We know she will make a great caring councilmember because she is smart and thinks things through and she really cares about people.”-  Jennifer and Damir Patino, Santa Rosa Residents

“Dorothy Beattie has the financial acumen to address the budgetary challenges facing Santa Rosa.  There’s no candidate or Councilmember more well-versed in financial issues than Dorothy Beattie, and I know she’ll be someone we can work with to revitalize downtown, sustainably manage city finances and identify solutions for Santa Rosa’s myriad challenges.” - Keven Brown, Owner, Corrick’s in Downtown Santa Rosa

“Dorothy Beattie has helped so many people through her significant volunteer work. She has helped at-risk teens through a jobs and mentoring program. She has helped thousands of community members of all walks of life, from the homeless to struggling students and retired people by doing taxes for free through her volunteer work with the United Way VITA/EKS program. She has also helped her tenants become homeowners.  Her actions speak for themselves, she is committed to all people in our community, and I have no doubt Dorothy will be a voice for residents of all walks of life on the City Council.” - Janet Condron, Former Mayor of Santa Rosa
