Senator Lola Smallwood-Cuevas (D-Culver City) has released the following statement about her new appointment to the California Workforce Development Board:

"I am grateful and honored that Pro Tem Mike McGuire appointed me to this new role as a member of the California Workforce Development Board. I have dedicated my career to helping uplift workers and working families across our state, and as a member of the Board, I will be committed to ensuring that equity, social justice and empowerment remain a focal point.

"It is important to acknowledge that the strength of our economy is intrinsically tied to the well-being of our workforce. As a Board, it is our collective responsibility to stand up for the rights of each worker, regardless of their background or ethnicity, to ensure that they are treated with dignity and respect.

"I pledge to work resolutely alongside my colleagues on the Board to address the needs of California's workforce, particularly our most vulnerable workers who depend on our leadership to advance policies that support fair wages, workplace safety, career-path training and access to quality jobs. Together, we can champion labor laws that reflect these values to build a future where no worker is left behind."

Senator Smallwood Cuevas represents the 28th Senate District, which includes the communities of South Los Angeles, Culver City, West Los Angeles, Century City and Downtown Los Angeles. Senator Smallwood-Cuevas spent more than two decades serving as a labor organizer, civil rights activist and community advocate before her election to the State Senate. She resides in the View Park community of South Los Angeles with her family.
