In addition to being slated to become Speaker of the Assembly, Atkins represents Imperial Beach in the State Assembly. She honored former Imperial Beach City Councilwoman Mayda Winter for her works as a project/grant administrator for the Southwest Wetlands Interpretive Association, and numerous achievements over the past 14 years managing numerous restoration projects in and around the Tijuana River Valley and the South San Diego Bay Wetland Restoration Project.
Mayda Winter served on the Imperial Beach City Council from 1996 to 2004. She currently chairs the City of Imperial Beach Redevelopment Successor Agency Oversight Board.
Assemblymember Atkins stated addressed the Women of the Year as “…leaders in every aspect of our society, yet they are not always recognized for their accomplishments.” “The women I honor today have made San Diego a better place and are role models for both young men and young women in our community. I thank them for their service.”
