Today, I had the distinct honor of welcoming and recognizing Nury Martinez as the first Latina elected to LA City Council President in its 170-year history, on the Assembly Floor.
When Nury and I were growing up, there were no women that looked like us in positions of power. Throughout her career, Nury has shattered the glass ceiling for Latinas time-and-time again. She is truly a role model. I am encouraged to know that little girls all over our state can see that through hard work and dedication any dream is within reach.
