She was a classroom teacher for 39 years. To me, that speaks volumes as to her values.

The Solano County Democratic Central Committee endorses Monica.

Monica and her main opponent, Rochelle Sherlock are on record with their views on the County Sheriff’s office and the Vallejo Police Department. Monica has been advocating for community oversight for the Sheriff’s office in the wake of reports linking some of the staff to hate groups. She also supports a county partnership to help correct problems with the scandal-ridden Vallejo Police Department. At a recent County Democratic Committee meeting Rochelle Sherlock seemed not to know anything about the controversy in the County Sheriff’s office, and ignored problems with the Vallejo Police Department.

Monica has always opposed projects that would have harmed the county’s air quality and safety, especially Valero’s Crude by Rail proposal in Benicia and Vallejo’s Orcem Cement Plant proposal.

She makes herself available to the public in ways that few politicians do ~ by showing up. She routinely travels her district, talking with regular people, and attending community events. She knows her district like no one else. And she documents her work in a weekly newsletter ~ again, something that few politicians do.

I trust Monica, and will vote for her. I hope you do too.
