New Leadership in the Hillsborough Chapter of the Democratic Hispanic Caucus of Florida
--Elected community leaders looking to bridge the gap between Democrats and the Hispanic community--
July 1st, 2008(Tampa, Florida)--On June 28, 2008, ten Hispanic Democrats came together on a Saturday morning to reorganize the Hillsborough Chapter of the Democratic Hispanic Caucus of Florida (HCDHCF). Elections were held and the following officers were elected:
President: Gilberto "Gil" Sanchez
Vice President: Daniel Suarez
Secretary: James Lascano
Treasurer: Paul Palacios
Gilberto "Gil" Sanchez, business attorney and business broker, was elected to lead the organization. Daniel Suarez, who also ran for State House against Florida House Representative Ambler, is the organizations Vice President. James Lascano, Secretary, and Paul Palacios, Treasurer, are active community leaders serving on various Non Profit Boards.
Attorney Sanchez has a vision of utilizing HCDHCF to bridge the needs of the Hispanic community on a grassroots level with local, state and national government. "The single biggest need within the Hispanic community is the lack of access to information that could otherwise assist them in providing solutions to their needs" says Attorney Sanchez. Specifically, HCDHCF will be organizing bilingual conferences and informational sessions that feature public officials, public administrators and professionals in the areas of law, banking, insurance, health and housing that will be free to the public. Attorney Sanchez is confident that by bridging this gap, the Hispanic community will see the Democratic Party as the party that aggressively seeks and supports the Hispanic community.
As the November election approaches, HCDHCF will also concentrate its efforts on registering Hispanic voters, promoting the use of absentee ballots and campaigning for local, state and national Democratic candidates. Transnational Relations, LLC will be serving as the pro bono public relations firm for HCDHCF.
