Under the supervision of the City Manager, Sotelo is responsible for administering the Human Relations Ordinance pertaining to anti-discrimination in housing, employment, and public accommodations in cooperation with the Human Relations Commission. Prior to his service as the interim HRO, Sotelo served as the chairperson for the Human Relations Commission.
