  1. Dave says:

    The site of the proposed Deer Creek (Lowe’s) is in a very low-lying area directly connected to a flood prone portion of the Petaluma River. My question to the candidates is: “Would you support this project if you knew that if it was built it would increase the damage caused by the inevitable next flood of the Petaluma River?”
