"Monica's on-going success as a leader, her business and problem solving acumen, her upbringing and education, and, most importantly, her commitment to improving the lives of those she serves, makes her the best possible person for this most challenging responsibility. She is courageous, strong and caring. We need her to represent us."

-Nancy Macy, 47-year SLV resident

"Monica is a true asset to our community. Her work with our most vulnerable residents, her core understanding of the needs within our communities, guided by her experience, intelligence, passion and her responsive “roll up her sleeves” approach to make meaningful changes and solve problems is both encouraging and inspiring. She will truly make a difference for the residents of District 5 as a County Supervisor and the people of Santa Cruz County."

-Donaldo Hernandez, MD
