President's Message:

After having been a member of the Lorenzo Patiño Council for many years, I am now privileged to assume the role of Council President for 2017.  Luisa Menchaca, our Immediate-Past-President, has expanded the influence and reach of the Council and I find it my goal to increase membership and cooperation with like minded organizations to help us sustain this momentum and our influence in the community.

My three priorities are (1) expanding our scholarship program for local students, (2) growing our membership through increased outreach efforts, and (3) continuing to be a leader and advocate among community based organizations and governmental entities when it comes to helping to resolve local issues and problems.

Our Council is well suited to accomplishing the above three priorities.  While our council includes persons from all walks of life, our membership includes current and retired members of State and Local government with years managerial experience and expertise.

These are troubled times and we invite you to join our Council.   Please review our website, www.sacramentolulac.org,  and see if we are worthy of your thoughts, opinions, energy, and involvement.
