Solo will appear in the 13th season of the show and, if the last year’s athlete winner Hines Ward is any indication, she will likely do pretty well.

Solis sought to pass environmental justice legislation. Solis won the seat outright in a June 3 election and was sworn in on December 1.

At the start of the Reagan administration in 1981, she became a management analyst at the civil rights division of the Office of Management and Budget, but her dislike for Ronald Reagan's policies motivated her to leave later that year.

In her one term in the State Assembly, Solis was prominent in the debate on illegal immigration to the United States, backing a bill to allow immigrants in the United States illegally to attend California colleges as long as they were residing in the state.

Republican State Senator Ray Haynes later said that Solis was "a committed liberal in the pockets of labor", but Republican State Senate Leader Rob Hurtt said of her, "We obviously didn't see eye to eye. I'll give her credit; she was a very hard worker and she knew her stuff." In 1997, she worked to pass environmental justice legislation with a law to protect low-income and minority communities from newly located landfills, pollution sources, and other environmental hazards in neighborhoods that already had such sites.

So this site does work...thank you very much Veggie Connection!

She is a member of the Democratic Party and served in the United States House of Representatives from 2001 to 2009, representing the 31st and 32nd congressional districts of California that include East Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Valley.

Solis was raised in La Puente, California, by immigrant parents from Nicaragua and Mexico. There she focused on workplace safety issues and on strengthening compliance with wage and hour laws.

Wayne and I have continued to talk for hours every day, and we met in person in August!
