Excerpts From Interview

“When women think about running for office…seize the day. Take the risk, at any age.”

“The country has overwhelmingly focused on Hillary Clinton as a woman – there is gender bias.”

“Women have a different way of working; we are more collaborative and less interested in playing games and scoring points… we want to get things done.”

More About Las Colinas Detention and Reentry Facility (LCDRF)
Located in Santee, the Las Colinas Detention and Reentry Facility (LCDRF) serves as the primary point of intake for women prisoners in San Diego County.

The facility opened in August 2014, replacing the old Las Colinas Detention Facility and is staffed by approximately 278 sworn employees and 143 professional staff members. With the new facility comes the implementation of new operational philosophies designed specifically for the female demographic.
LCDRF offers educational, behavioral and vocational programming for women, including restaurant management, sewing and landscaping.

With improved facilities and academic/pre-employment classes, reentry services are another emphasis of LCDRF. Inmates will leave better prepared for successful reintegration to the community, lowering the chance of reoffending.
