Updates were provided on the ongoing recovery efforts and policy issues directly affecting the island of Puerto Rico
Orlando, FL – The Orlando-based Auto Justice Law Firm of Michael T. Gibson, P.A. had the privilege of hosting a breakfast in honor of the governor of Puerto Rico, Ricardo Rosselló, before the town hall meeting in Kissimmee on Friday, January 12.
Community leaders who were in attendance included: the Mayor of Orange County Teresa Jacobs, Mayor of Kissimmee Jose Alvarez, Mayor of St. Cloud Nathan Blackwell, and the President of Iniciativa Puerto Rico: Jimmy Torres, among others.
More than 150,000 Puerto Ricans, many with families in Central Florida, have come to the state since October. They face job, education, healthcare and housing issues, which will require an ongoing effort from federal, state, local government and volunteers. Some 28,000 evacuees from the island have been provided assistance from the disaster relief center at the Orlando International Airport.
The town hall meeting was held at the Kissimmee Civic Center, 201 E. Dakin Ave., from 10 a.m. to noon. The purpose of the meeting was to raise awareness of the importance of political involvement and working toward fairer treatment of Puerto Ricans.
