Assembly member Mitchell has been a close friend of mine for many years. We have worked together on countless projects that have benefitted our communities and I can always trust her to tell me the truth, stand strong in the face of pressure and deliver for her constituents.
When City Councilman Price stepped down from his seat on the Senate, Holly as the natural choice to fill his seat and continue her service to our state. You can find out more about her at http://www.hollyjmitchell.com.
Her service on Budget, Public Service and Health Committees have made a profound difference and I know she will be a forceful advocate in the State Senate.
As her bio notes:
“As the mother of a middle-schooler, Holly Mitchell understands the concerns of working families and advocates legislative policy to meet their needs. And, as the daughter of two public service employees, she understands the importance of public service, and the need to protect critical services while growing a sustainable economy. In the Assembly, she seeks to improve the quality and accessibility of the state’s health and education systems. She focuses on job creation and finding a balance between business, human and environmental needs that expands economic opportunity while protecting natural resources.”
This will be a special election on September 17th , so make sure you know where your polling location is and make sure you vote for Holly Mitchell for Senate (26th District).
A new generation of leaders are moving up through the California government. Leaders from and of our community that will represent us well and advocate for the services and programs we need.
