Michaelle Solages, Haitian-American elected to New York State Assembly
Here is a picture of Michaelle Solages. She is an Haitian-American elected to New York State Assembly.
When, in 2012 following the disaster that was Hurricane Sandy, newly elected New York State Assembly member Michaelle Solages diverted her attention from her win to helping those affected by the natural disaster, she showed the people-oriented type of assembly member she would be. At the time, not only was she the first elected Haitian-American to be appointed onto the assembly, she was also one of many diverse candidates that year to be successful on the November 6 elections.
