Republican Isabella Solis was defeated by incumbent Democrat Joanne Ferrary. Solis spoke about her experience talking to voters on the campaign trail.
“I’ve had some really good interactions,” Solis said. “Of course, you know, kind of socially distancing, but it was a really good communication. People were concerned about the, you know, the pandemic of course, but they were also concerned about their students getting back to school. Education seemed to be the biggest thing that people were concerned, and then the other was the social security for the elderly, or for the seniors, that double tax on social security was another big topic."
She also shared her hopes for the state to reopen and recover from the pandemic, emphasizing she does not want to be guided by fear.
“We cannot lead our country or our state by fear, and sooner or later we're going to have to get back to normal," Solis said. "And I think that people are really looking for that normality. You know, they get really anxious, to be able to gather and just be with their families."
