Renteria Doesn’t Blend In

Another family member may have beaten her to it. Renteria’s mother, who worked as a school secretary in Woodlake for 35 years, is currently running for a seat on the school board. Renteria marvels at how her mom, for years the woman behind the desk taking other people’s calls, is campaigning to call the shots herself.

“I forgot about what kind of difference you can make when you run,” she said. “Maybe one day I’ll be like my mom and run for school board.”

Correction: Oct. 23, 2008

The article incorrectly stated that Renteria is the only Hispanic chief of staff in the Senate. At least three Hispanic chiefs, including Renteria, currently work in the Senate.
