Taveras getting recognized at Latino Leaders’ event in DC

January 18, 2012

Providence Mayor Angel Taveras is due for some attention in Washington, D.C.:

Mayor Angel Taveras will be honored this evening by the Latino Leaders Network™ (LLN)’s Tribute to Mayors dinner in Washington, D.C.  Mayor Annise Parker of Houston, Texas is also being honored at the event.

The Latino Leaders Network convenes mayors at the US Conference of Mayors winter and summer meetings to honor mayors who are bringing their communities together.

Consistent with a policy adopted since he took office, Mayor Taveras’ campaign is paying for all expenses related to the trip; no taxpayer funds are being used.

State Senator Juan Pichardo will introduce Mayor Taveras at the event. Other guests and speakers include Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa of Los Angeles, CA; Mayor Vincent Gray of Washington, D.C., and state Representative Carol Alvarado of Texas.
