SOLEDAD — Soledad City Council recognized Frank P. Trevino last week for his 43 years of working for the City of Soledad.
“Not only has Frank given his heart and soul to this community to our city, but I think the results are all pretty good,” said Mayor Fred Ledesma at the council meeting Nov. 7.
Trevino began his service with the City of Soledad on March 28, 1975. He became the Public Works foreman on Jan. 18, 2005, and three years later moved on to become Public Works supervisor. Trevino retired from the City on Aug. 31.
Trevino also holds the record for longevity with the City of Soledad with his 43 years of service.
“I love my co-workers here and I appreciate all the departments for all the work they have done for me,” Trevino said. “I was dedicated to my job for many years and my wife doesn’t miss getting up at 2 in the morning.”
Trevino plans to continue helping out the City as well as Pauline Tomasini with the Christmas Parade.
City of Soledad has changed at lot over Trevino’s career, and according to Public Workers Director Donald Wilcox, Trevino has been involved with those changes.
“The seven years I’ve spent with him have been great,” Wilcox said. “He’s the hardest working person I’ve ever worked with in my career. He cares about Soledad. He performed, he motivated.”
