[quote/] The head of an international engineering firm in Puerto Rico said in an editorial Saturday that when the time came to send 50 of his
engineers to help in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, he bypassed local officials and went straight to FEMA.
The reason, said Jorge Rodriguez, the CEO of PACIV, in an editorial in the New York Post, is that “for the last 30 years, the Puerto Rican
government has been completely inept at handling regular societal needs, so I just don’t see it functioning in a crisis like this one.”
“Even before the hurricane hit, water and power systems were already broken. And our $118 billion debt crisis is a result of government corruption
Puerto Ricans elected a new governor last November but, Rodriguez charged, he was inexperienced and had never been responsible for a budget.
Gov. Ricardo Rossello cannot exactly count on those around him either, Rodriguez asserted.
“His entire administration is totally inexperienced and they have no clue how to handle a crisis of this magnitude,” said Rodriguez, who has a
graduate business degree from Harvard Business School and was named a “Most Distinguished Graduate” by the University of Puerto Rico.

So it would appear that within Puerto Rico there is mistrust, corruption and COMPETENCY issues between the local government system and the People of
Puerto Rico, due to lack of e
xperience in many of its officials and corruption in the state sectors grants and aid programs.
It goes to illustrate when members of the governing body of PR such as the Mayor of San Juan say one thing and point a finger, only to readily be
called out by The People of Puerto Rico themselves as incompetent. By their own Engineers no less!
I think this is a fine show of the falsities the MSM portrays when they attempt to shift all focus of blame to the current POTUS..
Further exaggerating these claims against Trump has been a row apparently of under researched articles that we know some will call Fake News.
I'm interested in what both the Left learners and the Right Learners feel about what it says when they run to the federal government instead of say,
their own local Establishments such as the mayors and others that have been called out as incompetent.
What do you think?
Any rebuttals welcome
