Anaheim, Calif. – In line with her wide-ranging commitment towards creating multiple career pathways for high school students, today LaShé Rodriguez announced that she has received the endorsement of Painters & Allied Trades District Council 36.

“As a longtime advocate for organized labor, I am proud to receive support from the Painters and Allied Trades District Council 36, who is an affiliate of a union representing more than 11,000 men and women in Southern California,” said Rodriguez about the endorsement.

“I remember my parents describing the advantages of developing trade skills in high school, like woodshop, auto shop, and metal shop. Most of these options are just not available to today’s students. I intend to make it a priority to restore these hands-on technical courses, so students may find a career path where they truly shine.”

Since launching her campaign, Rodriguez has received endorsements from across Orange County’s labor, business, and political communities – including Congressman Lou Correa, Congresswoman Grace Napolitano, Orange County Supervisor Doug Chaffee, Senator Connie Leyva, Assemblywoman Cottie Pertie-Norris, Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva, Unite Here Local 11 Co-President Ada Briceño, and many others.


LaShe Rodriguez is a candidate for Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District’s Board of Trustees in 2020. For more information, visit LaShe’s website at
