I wanted to bring attention to Antioch City Council Candidate Monica Wilson who recently launched her campaign website which includes a blog. Her latest entry discusses the Labor Day Clean Up in Antioch while it promotes community pride.
While Ms. Wilson does not have the name recognition as Mary Rocha or Jim Davis in the council race, she is very solid and is making some progress in reaching out to potential voters as I see hear her name popping up more often in conversations.

Here is a portion of her post.
This past Saturday I participated in the monthly neighborhood clean up sponsored by the Antioch Police Department. The first Saturday of each month this group moves to different neighborhoods throughout the city of Antioch. Over the past year I have come to really enjoy these Saturday. The best thing about participating in the monthly clean up is getting to know the different people that come out each month. We chat with each other about events that have happened since the last clean up, vacations, weddings, and work among other things. Our discussion also are about the different houses in each neighborhood, landscaping (or lack of) and reminiscing about our childhood homes.
This Labor Day weekend we covered areas around City Park located at the corner of A and 10th Streets. It was great to see people in the community come out as well as some of our community leaders: Jim Frazier, candidate for Assembly District 11; Mary Rocha and Gary Agopian, Antioch City Council members; Martha Parsons, former Antioch City Council woman; Diane Gibson-Gray and Joy Motts, Antioch School Board Members; Alan Cantando, Antioch Chief of Police and Bill Cook, Crime Prevention Commissioner. There were approximately 40 + people in attendance to help clean around the park and neighboring streets.
