Campaign themes


Solis provided the following statement for the 2013 Local Voters' Pamphlet in Snohomish County:[3]

"A parent of school-aged children and as a long-term resident of Lynnwood I demand quality education for our children, unwavering support of our educators and changes to the status quo.

A Navy veteran I served my country with honor and now hope to represent our community as member of the school board; a voice for those who might not otherwise be heard.

In the private sector I have managed large groups of people in the health care setting. I gained invaluable experience in negotiations, team work and producing results. I have proven myself an accomplished communicator and have an established track record of successful collaboration across various forums. Maintaining effective working relationships built on open dialogue and trust is central to a successful partnership; as such I hope to partner with you in addressing and resolving the issues that face our educational system.

Together we can make a difference one child at a time."

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.[6]
