Napa County Supervisors Belia Ramos and Alfredo Pedroza were elected last week to the Latino Caucus of California Counties Executive Committee during the 123rd annual California State Association of Counties annual meeting in Sacramento.
Pedroza will serve as caucus vice president for the coming year. Ramos will serve as treasurer.
The caucus is affiliated with CSAC and works to provide a stronger voice in representing the growing Latino population statewide on issues such as agriculture workers and workforce support, among many others.
It is the first time two Napa County supervisors have been named to the caucus.
“Being elected to the caucus means Napa County has a stronger voice at the table when it comes to advocating legislatively for issues that directly impact our community and our economy,” Ramos said. “I’m honored to serve in this capacity and am ready to get to work.”
“The more opportunities we can create to bring in resources to champion our Napa County community, the better,” Pedroza said. “Our participation helps us strengthen our statewide partnerships, and I’m proud to be part of the discussion.”
