Last Week
More than half of our membership plus an equal number of invited fellow-Rotarians from island clubs, attended last week's Zoom meeting when our Resident Commissioner in Washington, the Hon. Jenniffer Gonzalez was our guest speaker.  Introduced by Juan Woodroffe, our speaker concentrated on two very timely issues:  Economic Development and Health Care.  With "Your Force in Washington" as her slogan, who is working to jump start manufacturing on the island.  We learned that up to 80% now goes to China and India.  She is focused on extending Medicare Advantage rates as well as Supplemental Security Income SSI.  Elected in 2016, with the highest number of votes, she is our youngest Resident Commissioner, and first woman to occupy the position.  When asked about statehood for Puerto Rico, Commissioner Jenniffer replied, "No doubt Puerto Rico will become a state. It's just a matter of time."
