SAN FRANCISCO—María Antonieta Mejía, editor-in-chief of San Francicso-based Spanish-language weekly El Mensajero was recently honored by the League of Women Voters here, as one of five women “Who Could be President,” reports El Mensajero.

Mejía, who is originally from Mexico, said that if she were president, the first thing she would do is to realize comprehensive immigration reform to help the millions of “immigrants who live in shadows for fear of being deported.” She added that the political discourse is “full of promises to the Latino community, but rarely do politicians fulfill them.”

In addition to Mejía, Pam Moore, news anchor for KRON 4; Mary Huss, general director of San Francisco Business Times, Rachelle Chong; Former FCC commissioner and newly named Regional Vice president of government affairs for Comcast; and Janet Reilly, president of the board of directors of the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District were honored.
