Highland resident Abigail Medina is currently campaigning to become the next Assembly member for the 40th District. With her 40th birthday to celebrate as well, Medina decided to hold a birthday bash and a fundraiser with her supporters in the Inland Empire.
Last Sunday afternoon, Dianne Landeros opened her home to Medina and her supporters for an early Mexican-style dinner and birthday celebration as a 40th for the 40th pep rally for Medina. As Medina’s campaign staff welcomed attendees at the Redlands residence, guests were treated to fresh tacos, guacamole, salsa, and Mexican traditional cold drinks.
“She’s a strong women’s health supporter,” said hostess Landeros. “She has spoken about global warming and environmental justice issues, as it relates to under-served communities that are suffering from contaminated land and water. She (Medina) is a real fighter and I like that. She’s going to go out there and give it her best! She’s a can-do person!
“Medina listens to the concerns of the constituency that she wishes to hopefully serve. She’s had to overcome many obstacles when growing up, and she still has managed to be successful. Medina’s got a ‘Yes we can’ attitude.”
