Lynwood Mayor Solache Receives LA County Appointment
Lynwood Mayor Jose Solache has been appointed to the Los Angeles County Library Commission. Solache, who was appointed by LA County Supervisor Mark Ridley Thomas, is one of only 20 individuals serving on the Library Commission. His term started on May 1 and will run for two years.
“This appointment to the Library Commission will allow me to continue my life’s work of working to create more opportunity for the people I serve,” said Mayor Solache, who served three terms on the Lynwood School Board. “Libraries are important cornerstones of a healthy community and must stay relevant in these rapidly changing times. I’m very pleased to accept this appointment.”
The Library Commission has four main tasks;
· It advises the County Librarian about the changing needs of libraries in the county
· Provides input and advocates on efforts to stabilize funding at both the local and state levels
· Assists in publicizing County Library programs and services to all residents
· Schedules Commission meetings around the county to enable residents to comment on services and programs
Ten commissioners are selected by the City Selection Committee of representatives of the cities served by the County Library, selections to be made from among elected city council members in those cities; and ten commissioners appointed by the Board of Supervisors, two by each Supervisor. The Commission represents both the unincorporated areas and the cities served by the County Library.
