On Nov. 21, I had a wonderful time meeting with Annabele Guillén. Ms. Guillén is the president of the prestigious pro-statehood organization, Equality for Puerto Rico. We discussed at length the future of Puerto Rico. As an American-Puerto Rican I believe that after 120 years of the U.S. presence in Puerto Rico it is time for Congress to act on behalf of the Puerto Rican people. I am here to stand for and serve the people of Florida and Puerto Rico, not be served by them. Decisions chosen by the Puerto Rican people will be my decisions that I will present to the Senate floor as soon as I am elected.—Candidate Ernie Rivera
