As Clerk-Recorder-Assessor (CRA), Deva Marie Proto would be responsible for managing property tax assessments for residential and business parcels across Sonoma County. In light of the recent North Bay wildfires, the CRA Department has been hard at work reassessing property values for many homes and businesses that were destroyed. Deva, who lives near the epicenter of destruction in the southern end of Santa Rosa’s Coffey Park neighborhood, has been working with other divisions of the CRA Department on strategic planning efforts regarding this and other initiatives.
