Godspeed, Wendy Soltes.

We lost someone special to us on Sunday.  Wendy Soltes passed away. Wendy had been involved with the United Democratic Headquarters, since 1984, that’s more than 30 years.  She was instrumental in Jack Scott’s and Anthony Portantino’s early electoral victories, and she was always a guiding light in every headquarters we had. But it’s not her accomplishments we’re going to miss, it’s her.  Wendy was family.  She was one of us, and did all she could to make our Headquarters not just a campaign, but a home.  Remember Wendy, remember who she was, what she stood for, and the light she brought to our community.  Best wishes to Elliot (pictured with her above), her son.  She will never be far from our thoughts.
