Max Rodriguez, Supervisor District 4
Supervisor Max Rodriguez is currently serving his fourth term as the District 4 Representative. He was elected in 2004, reelected in 2008, and ran unopposed in 2012 and 2016.
Max was born and raised in Madera California. As a lifelong resident of District 4, Max knows first-hand the challenges the community faces. He is fervently committed to improving the quality of life for working families in Madera County.
Max is a product of Madera High School where he graduated in 1958. He attended Fresno City College for a short period but had to cut his studies short to help provide for his family by working in the fields. Not long after, he began to work for American Forest Products better known as the North Fork Sawmill where he worked for 25 years. When the Sawmill closed in 1985, Max went back to school to become a Farmers Insurance Agent. He retired from the insurance industry in 2008.
While employed at the sawmill, Max became the Financial Secretary and President for the Lumber and Sawmill Workers Union (Local 2762). In 1979 he was appointed to the Madera District Fair Board by then Governor Jerry Brown. He was also appointed to the Madera County Mosquito Abatement Board from 1982 to 2001. He served as a Madera County Planning Commissioner for a short period before he decided to run for the Board of Supervisors seat in 2003. He is a past member and vice-president of the Pan-American club, a former volunteer for the American Heart Association, and a past member of the Madera Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, New Hope Madera, and the NAACP Branch 1084.
