                          HON. ADAM B. SCHIFF

                    in the house of representatives

                       Wednesday, April 17, 2013

  Mr. SCHIFF. Mr. Speaker, I rise today in honor of Women's History 
Month. Each year, we pay special tribute to the outstanding 
contributions and sacrifices made by our nation's women. It is an honor 
to pay homage to outstanding women who are making a difference in my 
Congressional District.
   I would like to recognize an exceptional woman, Ceci Dominguez. A 
resident of Elysian Valley for 41 years, Ms. Dominguez has been an 
advocate for clean air and creating green areas in our community. She 
has helped not only plan, but also establish the Jardin Del Rio 
Community Garden, the Marsh Street Park, and the Marsh Skate Park.
   Currently, Ceci serves as President of the Elysian Valley Seniors, 
and serves on the boards of the Sotomayor Learning Academies ArtLab 
School Site Governing Council, and the Cornerstone Theater Company, 
where she received the Community Visionary Award. She also serves as 
the President of the Park Advisory Board at the Elysian Valley 
Recreation Center, where she co-organized the Health and Holiday Fair 
in 2010 and the first Mammogram Social for women in 2011, where health 
services were provided free of charge to the public. She is also 
involved with community organizations such as the Los Angeles County 
Bicycle Coalition, Friends of the Los Angeles River, and Elysian Valley 
Girl Scouts of America.
   Previously, Ceci served as a Board Member of the Elysian Valley 
Riverside Neighborhood Council. She also co-founded the NorthEast 
Residents for Clean Air in 2011. Along with her late husband, Rey 
Dominguez, Ceci raised two wonderful children, Laura and Rey, and is 
the proud grandmother of Ricky.
   I ask all Members to join me in honoring a truly extraordinary woman 
of California's 28th Congressional District, Ceci Dominguez.
