Rosario Rodriguez was elected to Folsom City Council in November 2020. Prior to her election to the Council, she served on the Historic District Commission for three years.
Rosario currently serves on the Twin Lakes Food Bank Board of Directors and as a Board Trustee for the Folsom Rotary Foundation. She previously served as a Board Member for the Folsom Chamber of Commerce and the Folsom Economic Development Corporation.
As a small business owner and former healthcare manager, Rosario understands that small businesses thrive with the support of the community and city government. In 2016, she launched a San Francisco-style taqueria in Folsom’s Historic District, drawing on her background as a native of San Francisco.
Before launching her career as an entrepreneur, Rosario spent 24 years in healthcare management. She most recently worked for one of Sacramento’s largest healthcare systems.
Rosario and her husband Paul moved to Folsom in 2008. They were drawn to the unique qualities that make Folsom a great place to live and raise a family. They are guardians to their 14-year-old grandson Antonio, who was ecstatic to start high school as a Folsom Bulldog. Paul and Rosario have been members of Faith Baptist Church of Folsom prior to making Folsom their home. They are happy to report that a German Shepherd named Cody recently joined the family.
