In an effort to better address the concerns of the growing Latino community in Prince George’s County, County Executive Rushern Baker appointed a Latino liaison.

He chose Dinora Hernandez, the daughter of immigrants from El Salvador, to articulate the needs of that community in a new way.

“I’m in a very unique place where I can literally give back to a community that's helped mold me,” she said.

In her newly created position, Hernandez will be the eyes and ears of a community, tasked with transcending what's often a language and cultural barrier.

“A lot of the concerns are not unlike many other communities,” Hernandez said. “We still care about education, health care, jobs, economic development...What I want to do is be a conduit to that, be the person that they can rely on to help them get an answer."
