Vote for Monica Brown for Solano County SupervisorBy Alexis Davenport
October 20, 2016
I am voting for retired teacher Monica Brown for Supervisor, and I encourage everyone to do the same. Brown dedicated her life to her students and her community. As a teacher for 39 years, she helped to create bright futures for decades of students and families.
Brown’s commitment to serving others continues as she has promised to donate her $97,000 a year Supervisor salary to support local public schools and families. Brown will also work to eliminate longevity pay. The longer the Supervisors serve, the more money they receive. Brown believes that being elected by the voters is more than enough reward.
Brown was the first candidate for Supervisor to oppose the dangerous crude-by-rail project and is the only candidate opposing the proposed toxic cement factory in Vallejo.
Whether supporting our children, making sure our tax dollars are spent wisely or fighting for our environment, Brown is the right candidate. Please vote for Monica Brown for Supervisor on Tuesday, Nov. 8 or earlier by mail.Alexis Davenport
