Conversation: Ken Brown, Sonoma Bear Flag Social Club, City Council, Community Center & More

I recently had a delightful conversation with Ken Brown. Ken Brown has been a Sonoma City Council member for 8 years and has recently been re-elected to a third, four-year term. Many people also know Ken from his prominent role at the Sonoma Community Center which he joined in 1979.

I sat down with Ken to discuss his new role at the Community Center, his role as a Council Person (past and present) and his new project, The Sonoma Bear Flag Social Club. None of these clips exceed 5 1/2 minutes and most are much shorter. Full contact information for Ken is at the end of this entry.
On the Community Center:

This clip talks about his early years at the center when the founders of the center were still alive. Ken talks frankly about his journey with the Center and the personal growth he gained in the process.

In this clip, Ken brings us up to speed about his current role at the Center:

“It wasn’t my idea, but now it is.”

In this clip, Ken talks about his new office and his former residence on the plaza. Plaza history and plaza future in one!

In these clips Ken talks about his role as a City Council member.

What is he most proud of?
