Culinary elects former housekeeper as new secretary-treasurer

As D. Taylor moves up to take over the Culinary's parent union, Local 226 in Las Vegas has elected a former housekeeper as its new leader.

Nevada's largest union has elected Geoconda Arguello-Kline, who was in the No. 2 position of president (only in labor is a president No. 2!), as its secretary-treasurer. The first Latina president is now the first female leader of the union.

She is a former Nicaraguan refugee who arrived in Miami and later moved to Las Vegas.
