We set out on this journey more than year ago with an entirely different race. People told me over and over that I was “too young,” that I needed “more experience,” that I should wait my turn.
I knew that I was qualified. I knew that I was the right voice at the right time. I knew that I would work for my community.
After our race for Nevada County Supervisor and our narrow defeat, I decided to persist. With encouragement from my friends and family and from you, I threw my hat in the race for Grass Valley City Council.
As of last night, we were leading with the most votes. This afternoon, my friend Bob Branstrom called to concede, guaranteeing my spot on Grass Valley’s City Council.
I cannot thank this community enough for your commitment to our message and for your continued support. I would like to invite all of you to my swearing-in on Tuesday, December 11th at 7pm at Grass Valley City Hall on E. Main Street in Grass Valley, CA.
Please stay tuned for information about an appreciation party! It’s in the works!
Again, thank you.
With deepest gratitude,
Hilary Hodge Grass Valley City Councilwoman-elect
