Soledad mayor discusses gun violence with middle schoolers

SOLEDAD — Soledad Mayor Anna Velazquez visited Main Street Middle School on March 9 to talk with students about gun violence and possible solutions, as well as hear their suggestions and ideas. 

The students in English/creative writing teacher Ty Vossler’s class recently wrote letters to Velazquez and the Soledad City Council regarding gun violence, and wrote questions and made suggestions as to how to keep the city safe from it. 

Velazquez volunteered to spend the entire day with Vossler’s classes to personally field students’ questions and comments. 

“Our students (were) very excited to have such a tremendous role model come to the school,” Vossler said.
