04.22.16 - Rep. Ramos To Attend First-ever National Conference For Puerto Rican Elected Officials

 

State Rep. Dan Ramos (D-Lorain) and City Councilman Angel Arroyo, Jr. (D-Lorain) are travelling to New York this weekend for a national conference of elected officials of Puerto Rican descent. Hosted by New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito and New York Assemblyman Marcos Crespo, the conference will feature discussions regarding the financial crisis in Puerto Rico and how it affects Puerto Rican communities across our nation, as well as the need to encourage Puerto Ricans in the United States to register and vote. 

“The Puerto Rican economic crisis has repercussions affecting all of our communities. So many of us represent constituents who must travel back and forth to visit family on the island, but cannot afford to stay due to the economic instability,” said Ramos. “We need to work together to urge the federal government to find an equitable solution for our fellow U.S. citizens living there, and for those of us who live on the mainland, as well.”
