I had the honor and privilege of hosting on May 22, the 9th Annual "Tribute to SHeroes" Awards at the Radisson Hotel at USC. A SHero is a woman who has demonstrated significant leadership, great pride and an unyielding commitment to strengthening our community.
This event is a tradition I started when I first served in the State Assembly and continued through my time in the State Senate, and now as your City Council representative in the New 9th.
The yearly luncheon allows me to honor the dedication of 25 phenomenal women who are driving positive change in the Ninth District—individuals who often are not thanked enough or whose tremendous impact goes unnoticed.
Of all the events I host every year, this is the one that is closest to my heart. After all, I have two very special SHeroes in my life: my mother Ms. Charlena Price and my wife Del Richardson-Price.
The recipients of this year’s SHero Awards have helped enrich the lives of our neighbors, and this past Sunday we came together to celebrate their accomplishments.
Ladies: You are the epitome of putting service before self! A very warm congratulations to …
