Dear Community of the City of Hollister:
I have known Mickie Solorio Luna for many years and have had the opportunity of serving with her in different capacities within the community and in the non-profit world. Now, for a second time I’m serving with her in a different capacity within her campaign. I wanted to share with you a few personal reasons why we need to re-elect Mickie Luna as a Councilmember for the City of Hollister. In the many years I have known Mickie, I have never met anyone as knowledgeable, consistent and focused on improving the community. She can be counted on to champion for our community and youth as she has initiating several youth leadership programs on her spare time. Nothing upsets her including negative commentaries made in some social media pages as she knows that she serves as an example to our youth and community.
Mickie’s ability to remain focused and calm, both personally and professionally, is due to her values and respect for all our City residents and City employees. Her personal record consists of bringing knowledge to the City Council as a former City of Hollister Finance Department employee for more than 30 years. Her extensive experience is surely an asset in her decision making as a City Councilmember to be responsible with public funds.
We all know we can count on Mickie to stay focused on the things that really matter. In an election year, we need a peaceful champion we can count on to conserve our values and for the City to continue the important work with consistency of knowledge on the issues facing the City. Mickie has served her community with integrity and foresight these past four (4) years and with her more than 30 years of employment service. As of recent, she had been the only woman on the City Council and has always advocated for equity at all levels of government. The City will continue to benefit from her knowledge and expertise as a former employee to remain within budget boundaries and knowledge of City issues and concerns.
This is why several local organizations have strongly endorsed Mickie Solorio Luna for District 2, including: the Hollister Police Officers Association, the City of Hollister Firefighters Association, Local SEIU, the United Farm Workers, among many more supporters.
To learn more about how Councilmember Mickie Luna will continue to serve the City of Hollister, please see this recent District 2 interview where she comprehensively provides details. Luna is also endorsed by eight (8) former mayors, four (4) former department heads, Robert Rivas and Mark Medina (SBC Supervisors) and various elected officials from throughout the State including: Simon Salinas, Monterey Supervisor; Gil Cedillo, Los Angeles City Councilmember and many more.
Please, join me in re-electing Mickie Solorio Luna this November.
Ruth Hermosillo, Community Advocate
