Our special guest speaker at our March General Membership meeting is Councilmember Monica Rodriguez, who represents the 7th Council District which includes several Northeast San Fernando Valley such as Sylmar, Mission Hills, Pacoima, Lake View Terrace, Sunland-Tujunga, North Hills, and several others. In early 2019, Councilmember Rodriguez was appointed to serve as the Chair of the LA City Council Public Safety Committee, which oversees the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD), the LA Police Department, and other city departments that work on public safety issues.
Councilmember Rodriguez is the daughter of former LAFD legend Ralph Rodriguez, who served the LAFD and the people of Los Angeles for more than 25 years as a Firefighter, Captain, and instructor at the LAFD Drill Tower.
UFLAC was proud to endorse Councilmember Rodriguez in her successful election to the City Council in 2017. Since she was sworn in on her first day on the city council on July 1, 2017, Councilmember Rodriguez has been a tremendous advocate for public safety in general and our Firefighters in particular. As the newly appointed Chair of the City Council Public Safety Committee, UFLAC looks forward to continuing our work with Ms. Rodriguez on issues of importance to our Firefighters and the LAFD.
We welcome Councilmember Rodriguez to UFLAC at our March GM Meeting and look forward to working with her over the next several months.
