By now, most of you have heard, my good friend, partner, colleague and neighbor Assemblymember Holly Mitchell is running to replace Curren Price in the Senate.
When people ask my opinion on her run, I always say what I believe and know to be true; Holly is going to make an outstanding Senator.
Holly ran for the Assembly on a clear platform,
“When I ran three years ago, I ran on a platform of supporting working families and children,” said Mitchell. “I have focused my three years, thus far, in the Assembly, on a platform where we looked at… building a healthy California, which means building healthy families.”
Her effective advocacy and understanding of how to get things done has made her beloved by her constituents and respected by her peers. I've worked with her on a number of projects and I count her among a group I consider true community partners.
Here is a video from 2011 when I presented Holly with a scroll of appreciation for her work with Crystal Stairs, a nonprofit that provides critical services to lower-income families and their children.
Holly is a true leader and with intelligence, work ethic, and the most important trait for a public servant to have: passion.
I passionately urge you to support Holly Mitchell for Senate.
