Ah, Excuse me...all Puerto Rican from USA & the beautiful island, I believe if we aren't quite inform about these political issues on the island
maybe we shall not be commenting...do forgive me Please: Boombye, Marg6043 & Spittincobra but your all making comments with out being informed....this
only makes us Puerto Ricans in general sound ignorant (NO PUN in intend). I really am not trying to insult anyone. (Please don't take it that way) I
love all my fellow Boricuas no matter where you are.
So FYI....here is the following:
New Governor is Anibal Acevedo Vila, Male, Age 42. Born & Raised in P.R. Went to San Jose College in Rio Piedra, P.R. & in 1982 obtain a Bachelors in
Political Science at the University of P.R. holds 2 other degrees and a Masters in Constitutional Rights magna cum laude from Harvard.
Anibal Acevedo is a great leader…. Highly qualified for the job of Governor of P.R. I have copied and pasted his career experiences from Judicial
Courts to President of the PPD in P.R. (Sorry listed them in Spanish-didn't feel like translating) ..... but hey we are Rican right?
*Editor de la Revista Jurídica de la Facultad de Derecho de la Universidad de Puerto Rico.
*Oficial Jurídico del Juez Federico Hernández Dentón en el Tribunal Supremo de Puerto Rico
*Oficial Jurídico del Juez Presidente Levin Campbell del Tribunal Federal de Apelaciones en Boston.
*Director de la Oficina de Asuntos Legislativos de Fortaleza bajo Rafael Hernández Colón donde colaboró en la Ley de Municipios Autónomos y la
*Legislador y Portavoz del Partido Popular en la Cámara de Representantes donde se distinguió por su verticalidad y fiscalización de la pasada
*Ha sido el Comisionado Residente en Washington más productivo en los últimos veinte años.
His Political party is PPD=Partido Popular Democratico - this means that P.R. will remain an associated state of the USA but w/ the freedom to create
it's own laws and makes it own choices for the People and yes it also means Puerto Ricans don't pay taxes.
Which personally I believe it should remain like that.....What would happen to our elders and low income families if they suddenly had to pay taxes
for homes, land and other properties that they already own; not to mention electricity, gas and even water taxes…these properties may be just about
their only means of survival. I understand that being a state may bring many jobs to the island but it also has it’s many down sides.
I myself am not thoroughly informed as I wished to be.....but I am a full blooded P.Rican and I love the island and am very proud of who I am and
where I come from.
Fellow Boricuas let us be informed and have real knowledge of what goes on....just because we may live in the USA and it may or may not be good....
Doesn't mean we should neglect our roots and not keep up with what is going on in the heart of our pride and joy our Puerto Rican Island.
I help you be inform & you can also inform me with something I may not have knowlege of .
Thanks & Regards w/ Boricua love.....
this is Informurself......saying talk to you later!
