Monica Brown has my vote
I live in South Vallejo, District 2, and I’m voting for Monica Brown to be our Solano County Supervisor for a second term. I hope you will, too.
I first met Monica Brown during the fights against proposed industrial projects: Crude by Rail and Orcem cement plant/coal terminal. She did the research and took a stance against these dirty proposals. She won Supervisor District 2 in 2016 by listening and leading.
We fought for our lives and we all won! You have to say “no” to the bad to make room for the “good” in your life and in business.
And it’s working — just look at all the new biz on Vallejo’s Mare Island! Would these new companies come to our city if we had a polluting cement plant on the Napa River?
Sadly, some politicians were on the wrong side of the Orcem and Crude-by-Rail issues. Those people met in secret, they took dirty campaign money. Those people and the people they endorse will never have my trust or my vote.
Back to why Monica Brown is the best choice for Supervisor! In her first term, she is constantly meeting with regional government agencies on our behalf. She was vocal in her opposition to Regional Measure 3 that is raising the bridge tolls because it puts an unfair burden on all Solano County residents.
We’re paying the most in tolls and getting the least transportation improvements/benefits. We lost RM3, but she keeps fighting. Monica Brown was instrumental in passing Laura’s Law in Solano County — she cares about the most vulnerable people in our community and wants to help them get the mental health services they so desperately need.
And it may seem silly — but she has regular office hours. (Probably a habit from being a teacher.)
It means a lot to me that I can talk to her in a convenient and safe place.
I trust Monica Brown to keep working for all of us. For our health. For our economic welfare. For our future.
If Monica Brown has a clear majority in the March 3 primaries, then she wins and doesn’t have to campaign until next November.
She can focus on her job. She can keep putting in the work for you and me. So get out and vote on March 3.
