Patricia's addition to the La Mesa City Council would be extremely wonderful and at the same time provide the City of La Mesa with a person who understands the benefits of being a team-player, is committed to service, and can create a cohesive work environment, all of which is essential in building positive community partnerships. During the four decades I've known Patricia, she has never let anyone down, and I strongly believe she will never let down the City of La Mesa.

“Patricia is a very honest, sincere person who cares about other people and always wants to help where she can. I believe she would be a great addition to the City Council because she will improve La Mesa for all residents and make the city a better place to live.”

“Patricia and I have been good friends for over 15 years and during that time I’ve seen how devoted she is to our community. She has worked tirelessly to advance women and minority owned businesses. When I needed help Patricia was there for me until I got back on my feet. Her dedication to any task is what sets her apart from others. She does not give up until the mission is complete. I know she will continue this important work with the City Council. She is a true value and asset to the community of La Mesa."

"I am voting for Patricia Dillard because she is passionate about our city and genuinely wants to see it thrive. What I love and respect about Patricia is that she works to understand an issue thoroughly to provide impactful solutions. Her policies and leadership will make La Mesa a much stronger community."
