Alejandra Sotelo-Solis for Mayor of National City

Mona Rios for National City Councilmember

Mona Rios is a fourth-generation National City resident who was elected to the National City Council in 2010.

In 2017, Rios became a vocal advocate for AB 805 to lay the groundwork for the growth of equitable transportation systems in transit-dependent communities, including National City.

In early 2018, she was elected as vice chair of the Metropolitan Transit System. EHJC applauds Rios for dedicating herself to making National City a place that families and businesses are proud to call home.

Jose Rodriguez for National City Councilmember

With a long background in advocating and organizing for social and economic justice in National City, Jose Rodriguez has earned the support of EHJC.

EHJC recognizes his commitment to reducing incompatible land use to protect health of residents and workers, increasing neighborhood green space, promoting sustainable construction practices and advancing affordable transportation — citing his opposition to the 2016 ballot Measure A that would have led to the expansion of the I-5 and I-805 freeways.

Rodriguez attributes his commitment to bringing justice to working families to the hard work of his parents who immigrated from Mexico.
