New Labor Official to Speak at Glover Breakfast

Pittsburg resident Reuben Rosalez heads federal agency’s western region

A native Contra Costa County resident has been appointed as the new regional administrator of the Western Region of the Department of Labor. Ruben Rosalez learned of his appointment June 25.

A resident of Pittsburg, Calif., Rosalez will be the guest speaker at Supervisor Federal Glover’s Breakfast Club. The breakfast will be held at the Wedgewood Event Center, 2222 Golf Course Road in Pittsburg starting at 7:30 a.m. on July 20.

We’re delighted that Ruben is speaking at my breakfast,” said Glover. “His first public address as regional administrator will be a homecoming, of sorts.”

Rosalez, who also served as a school trustee for the Pittsburg Unified School District, graduated from the University of the Pacific in 1987 with a B.S. in Public Administration. He began his career with the Wage & Hour Division that same year as an investigator in the Los Angeles District Office and worked his way up through various positions until 1997 when he was promoted to be the Assistant District Director in the San Francisco District Office.

In February 2007, he was promoted to serve as the Western Region’s Director of Enforcement. In May of 2009, Ruben was again promoted to assist in leading the Western Region as the deputy regional administrator, during a time of significant growth and change.

Since September 2011, he has served in the role of acting regional administrator, overseeing DOL operations in eight western states.

In addition to his work, Ruben is very civic minded and involved in his community. He was active in the Pittsburg Unified School District, School Board of Trustees (elected in 2000, 2004 and 2008), Future Leader of America East Bay, Founder/Board Member Youth Leadership Program, and is an active member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. When he does find time to unwind he enjoys coaching youth wrestling and playing golfing, fishing and cooking.

Ruben still resides in his hometown of Pittsburg with three of his four children: Ruben Jr., Chica and Maya. His oldest daughter is Lazara.
