TIME DOESN’T STOP FOR ANYTHING OR ANYONE
LIFE GOES ON
Hurricane María battered the American possession/colony of Puerto Rico on September 20, 2017.
Life in my country has forever been changed.
Even though this is not top news anymore, the 3 million + American citizens living there are hurting, suffering and dealing with their lives the best way they can.
~THE LADY IN READ WHO APPEARS IN THE VIDEO~
Jennifer González-Colón is the resident commissioner from Puerto Rico and is a Republican. She has served since Jan 3, 2017. González-Colón is next up for reelection in 2020.
Because Puerto Rico is a territory/colony of the United States, and not a state, its representative in the House of Representatives is a delegate, called the resident commissioner, with limited voting privileges – González-Colón can vote in committee but not on the House floor, including not on the final passage of bills. Delegates have a marginalized role in Congress and their constituents are not represented in Congress in the same manner as most citizens.
I don’t agree with her politics and I personally do not like her.
(How can a woman, from an American colony, be a Republican, escapes my mind’s grasp!)
A little help would go a long way.
This short video explains a lot.
