Sounds like it might be in your own home.

I'm always amazed that folks believe that somehow there are enclaves of like minded people gathering in one place.

I have friends who are green party members and think they live in the most progressive part of CA. I have Libertarian friends who think they live in the most....well....libertarian part of CA. I have friends who are big rednecks, yep, they think they are in the heart of Texas.

People end up associating with folks of a common interest. My guess is no matter where you would end up, you'll find those folks and enjoy where you live and think that you have found the most politically and socially conservative place to live in Sonoma County.

Good Luck!

I love Sonoma county to visit, but I don't think conservative can be used in the same sentence with Sonoma...

I think that's true with most Bay Area Counties. Says a lot when we consider Sonoma being one as well as it is mostly rural but still not really conservative.

If political views are important and one would rather be in a conservative area, the 9 nine Bay Area counties may not be a good fit.

Santa Rosa has a conservative bent, of all the areas of sonoma county. Also, not far away in Cloverdalte and Windsor, you will get the same feel.

If you mean conservative as you said 'not overtly liberal', then these places apply.
Sometimes, people want conservative meaning church-going and family oriented with emphasis on a more traditional lifestyle, but they are not necessarily looking for Republicans. Plenty of democrats fit into this lifestyle bracket, as well.

So, there's liberal lifestyle and there's liberal meaning democratic. 2 different things.
You will find less 'liberal' lifestyles in Sonoma County, regardless of how said people 'vote'. Areas to look are the above.
Skip Sebastopol, Russian River and for the most part, Petaluma, and you will find a more conservative vibe. (no clue if people are voting conservative, however.)

LOL! After moving here from Berkeley...I'd say most of it is socially conservative....don't really pay attention or care how people vote....by my perspective is skewed from too many years in Berzerkeley!
