On Tuesday, January 8, 2019 at the first Sonoma County Board of Supervisors meeting of the new year Sonoma Valley grape grower, scientist and businessman, past president of
Sonoma County Farm Bureau and Farm Bureau Foundation of Sonoma County Tito Sasaki was honored with a Gold Resolution on the occasion of his retirement from the Sonoma County Farm Bureau.
Supervisor Susan Gorin congratulated Sasaki and thanked him for his many contributions to Sonoma County agriculture and past Sonoma County Farm Bureau President Steve Dutton spoke on behalf of Farm Bureau and thanked Tito for his service to our organization. Sasaki’s wife Janet and SCFB Directors Domenic Carinalli and wife Lynda, and Joe Pozzi were also in attendance.
Pozzi said that although he is sad to see Sasaki step down, he appreciates all that he has given to Farm Bureau.
“I think the Gold Resolution gives Tito the recognition he deserves for all the efforts that he’s put in not only for Farm Bureau but for all the different agriculture sectors in Sonoma County,” Pozzi said. “He has helped everyone who is in agriculture.”
Pozzi added that Sasaki’s expertise and dedication to tackling complex water issues, which continue to be more and more important every day, was invaluable to Sonoma County Farm Bureau members and Sonoma County residents overall.
The Sonoma County Farm Bureau would like to thank Sasaki for his years of committed service to the agriculture industry and his passion for securing agriculture’s future in Sonoma County.
