Bonnie Monte

C.P. Chair

I moved to the Bay Area from Brooklyn and never looked back. I’ve been a resident of Marin for 21 years and of Santa Venetia since 2008. I can honestly say this is the most wonderful place I’ve ever lived — the rural feel, the friendly neighbors, and the community spirit make it a little pocket of heaven.

As an active community volunteer, I’m committed to maintaining the special quality of life we enjoy here — and preserving the environment for our many non-human residents, too.

I’m a writer and editor by trade. When not working, I spend my time gardening, volunteering at a farm animal sanctuary, and struggling to complete a mystery novel I’m writing. I have two adult daughters and a high-strung but lovable dog.
