By a vote of 5-0, the City Council ratified the Mayor’s reappointment of 
Linda Takeuchi to the Community Services Commission for the 11th time.  She just finished serving a total of 30 years, and her new term will end in 2022.
“Linda has been with our Community Services Commission since 1989 and has been an outstanding Commissioner,” Mayor Eunice Ulloa said.  “I have to say, she is the reason we have a Tiny Tots program today.  And now she has grandkids who could be in the program.”
During her time as a Commissioner, Ms. Takeuchi has been an active member, serving on many sub-committees and has been Commission Chair several times.  She was instrumental in the establishment of a formalized fireworks sales process.  Ms. Takeuchi has served on the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) sub-committee, helping to make funding recommendations to the Council.  She has also been active with the Teen Advisory Committee, Focus on Youth, Healthy Chino Coalition, and she was the chairperson for the City’s Centennial Celebration in 2010.  She was also an active volunteer on the Community Support Team of the Police Department. 
“It doesn’t really seem like a very long time,” Ms. Takeuchi said.  “I can’t tell you how much I love the City of Chino and its residents.  It’s a beautiful place for children, seniors, families, and for business.”  She continued to say, “You can’t ask for a better community, and for a better feeling of community, and I hope we can keep that.  I’ve worked very hard to try to keep that.”
Ms. Takeuchi is a long-time resident of chino.  She has a Master’s Degree in Education and taught elementary aged children for 25 years.  Ms. Takeuchi has been recognized from other organizations, such as the California State Senate 32nd District, Assemblywoman Wilmer Amina Carter’s Public Safety Volunteer Award; California Park and Recreation Society’s District 11 Layman of the Year Award; the California State Senate 32nd District, Assemblywoman 
Norma Torres’ Woman of the Year Award, and City of Chino Spirit of Achievement Award winner.
