Los Angeles, CA – During their meeting today, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a motion recognizing Brenda Rodriguez, a Huntington Park resident and Cudahy employee, for her service to residents of her communities. Chair Janice Hahn, who represents the Southeast Los Angeles communities, submitted the motion as part of a series of recognitions during Latino Heritage Month, which runs through October 15.
“Brenda is an exceptional example of a public servant who gives back to the communities she came from. The events she delivers in Cudahy are golden opportunities for residents to spend some time with their neighbors and have fun in their own communities. I am so grateful for her partnership and her commitment,” said Hahn.
Rodriguez was born and raised in the City of Cudahy and currently resides in neighboring Huntington Park. She began her service to Cudahy at the age of 13, as a volunteer soccer coach for eight years before becoming the Recreation Coordinator in 2015. She also served as a Parks and Recreation Commissioner for nearly two years. Her current role is Community Services Director.
“I’m honored to receive this recognition from Supervisor Hahn and the Board of Supervisors. I love the community of Cudahy and feel so fortunate to be able to serve them every day,” said Rodriguez.
Rodriguez holds a bachelor’s degree in Administration from California State University, Long Beach and a Master’s Degree in Public Policy from the University of Southern California. She was the first in her family to obtain a master’s degree.
