Monica Wilson put out the following Press Release announcing she is running for Antioch City Council. I’ve met Ms. Wilson on many occasions and she seems eager to help direct Antioch to some much needed change to help local businesses and bring more jobs to Antioch. In speaking with her at the Contra Costa County Democratic picnic this past Saturday, she shared with me her willingness to want to work with all types of residents in Antioch to ensure a positive change comes in the near future if elected.
Antioch — Monica Wilson filed as a candidate in the Antioch City Council race for this November. Wilson is a member of the Antioch Economic Development Commission and a member of the Blight/Shop Antioch Sub-committee.
“I want to bring a fresh look and team approach to city government. These have been tough times, but Antioch can pull it together and move forward. We need leadership. I’m ready to make a difference and lead this turnaround,” states Wilson.
Monica Wilson has a Bachelor of Science degree from Howard University and an MBA from the University of Phoenix. Her work experience includes marketing, business development and managing a retail store. She currently is a College Dean Assistant at Mills College in Oakland.
“As a Councilmember I will focus on bringing more businesses to Antioch, finding new ways to support small businesses and expanding job opportunities for our citizens,” Wilson said.
Wilson is a frequent participant in the Neighborhood Clean-up crews and has seen firsthand the problems facing many Antioch neighborhoods. “We need a Council who will do more to keep our neighborhoods safe. Adding police officers and stepping up code enforcement are a must,” states Wilson.
