  1. Hello,

    I’m interested in the DEI Commission.

    I’m a first generation Hispanic and have been living in MLT since 2005. Currently I work as a Media Specialist and before I was the Publisher of the largest Latino newspaper in Washington.

    Thanks,
    Alvaro

    1. Thank you Alvaro! I hope you reach out to the City Clerk’s office. I am excited to see what this commission can do, and hope to volunteer in support of events/round tables etc.

      Don’t worry about Linda, she’s always like that.

      1. Elaine, I can always count on you to comment on my post because you don’t like and approve of what I say.

        Don’t worry about Elaine, she’s always like that.

  2. In these hard economic times, the city should not be creating new programs especially a PC program. We do not need a DEI program because no one is excluded from something if they want to be a part of it. We all have the opportunity to be included if we so desire. Such programs are not necessary and a waste.
