In Puerto Rico, voters reeling from political upheavals and crises face a crucial election (En Puerto Rico, los votantes que se recuperan de los trastornos políticos y las crisis enfrentan una elección crucial)

The election on the island follows the historic protests following the scandal that led to Gov. Ricardo Rosselló’s resignation. (La elección en la isla sigue a las históricas protestas tras el escándalo que llevó a la renuncia del gobernador Ricardo Rosselló.)

In Puerto Rico, voters reeling from political upheavals and crises face a crucial election

It is ironic that in spite all public effort to change the island’s political culture all three candidates of the ruling party equal the same values. (Es ironico que a pesar que el publico ha hecho grandes esfuerzos por cambiar la cultura politica de Puerto Rico, todos los candidatos de el partido en poder tienen los mismos valores.)

I love media and communication, as well as digital technology. I write in Spanish and English, fluent in both languages: speak, read, write, comprehend. I was born in New York, but was sent to Puerto Rico at an early age, where I lived until drafted by the U.S. army. Upon returning from an honorable discharge, I found Puerto Rico small and limited at the time. I moved to Boston where I pursued musical studies and later worked as a musician, teacher, and speech-pathologist in New York. I studied music at Berklee College of Music, Boston, MA, and Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology at various New York City colleges, including New York University, New York City, New York. I played professionally in Puerto Rico, prior to entering Berklee College of Music, and after finishing studies there I played in the 80’s bass guitar briefly, with various latin bands, including the Machito Big Band Orchestra in 1982. I was part of their recording that year. Once I saw the transitory nature of music, I studied speech-pathology and worked in that function after teaching middle-school and elementary grades in the New York City Board/Department of Education. In that capacity, I also worked for the New York City Department of Health as an independent contractor providing therapy and evaluations for pre-school and school-age children. I later worked in the high school setting in that capacity before I retired from the Department of Education. I am now retired and with my spare time, I pursue old, and new dreams, as age is a reminder of the evanescence and impermanence of life.
