Editors and Landlords:
During this crisis, I hope all landlords who rent to stores and families will give their tenants a compassionate break and not charge rent to small businesses that have had to close as well as families who have been layed off from work because of this worldwide coronavirus epidemic.
Rents in Sonoma are very high and small businesses that are having a hard time during normal times, are facing catastrophic losses during this terrible epidemic. Please, Sonoma landlords, even if it hurts, forgive rents until this crisis passes. Thank you.
