Congressional congrats for outgoing Vintners & Growers ED
Posted on April 29, 2021 by Sonoma Valley Sun
Congressman Mike Thompson presents a very special Congressional Record to outgoing Sonoma Valley Vintners & Growers Alliance Executive Director Maureen Cottingham.
The statement recognized her leadership and impact on the community, often under challenging conditions. “Under Ms. Cottingham’s guidance, the SVVGA has achieved numerous accomplishments, including providing crisis response and support to winegrowers and farmers during the Sonoma County wildfires, as well as raising over $25 million for children’s literacy programs and non-profits in our community.
Ms. Cottingham, who announced her resignation
in March, “has dedicated her life to the growth of local family legacies in grape growing and winemaking in our region.”
This week’s presentation was made by Congressman Thompson and his aide Rebecca Hermosillo at the Sangiacomo Family Vineyards in Sonoma.
