Hilda Solis to Labor secretary

Looks like there will be an opening in the ranks of local Latino Congress people after all. Word out of Washington is that Rep. Hilda Solis will be nominated as Secretary of Labor in the Obama Administration. She's from El Monte and represents, alphabetically speaking, Azusa, Baldwin Park, Covina, Duarte, El Monte, Irwindale, Rosemead, South El Monte, and West Covina and portions of Monterey Park and East Los Angeles.
