Labor Secretary Solis to resign

Onetime Los Angeles-area congresswoman Hilda L. Solis is stepping down as President Obama’s secretary of Labor to return home, a move seen as a potential first step to a bid for the county Board of Supervisors.

In a letter Wednesday to Labor Department employees, Solis, 55, said that after spending time with family over the holidays, she had decided to “begin a new future, and return to the people and places” she loves.
