Assemblymember Bradford, who respresents the 62nd Assembly District, said. “Semenza has been active in the South Bay for over 40 years as a business owner, chair of the Gardena City Planning Commission, and a board member of the Gardena YWCA. She is exactly the type of person who makes Gardena the wonderful community that I call home.”

Her peers applaud Bradford’s choice.

“We are thrilled that Mina Semenza received this honor and has been recognized for her

tireless work in the community,” Tamara Suminski, president of the South Bay

Association of REALTORS® said. “This award highlights both Women’s History Month and also the contributions that REALTORS® everywhere make in their own cities and

neighborhoods.”
