Betty stands for truth, integrity, and equal rights for all. I’ve known Betty and her character for 20 years. We’ve sat in college classrooms together; we were neighbors; we’ve celebrated holidays together and shared many conversations. I can truly say that Betty would be the City Council Woman that the City of Orange could benefit from her strength, knowledge, and integrity. She will always stand up for what’s right and just, for the undeserved and voiceless, and for equal rights under the law. Vote for Betty Valencia because she’ll work fairly and wholeheartedly for the citizens in the City of Orange.
