|   City News

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno and Chief of Staff Tom Ashe welcomed Enrique Garcia Sanchez, Consul General of the Dominican Republic of New England today. Bethania Rodriguez, Western Mass Vice Counsel for Dominican Republic Consulate Office here in Springfield, and City of Springfield DPW Civil Engineer Vladimir Caceres were also in attendance and helped to set up the meeting.

Mayor Sarno stated, “I want to thank Vice Counsel Bethania Rodriguez and our own DPW Civil Engineer Vladimir Caceres for reaching out to my office and setting up this meeting with the Consul General of the Dominican Republic.  Recently, the Dominican Consulate opened an office here in downtown Springfield to serve our Western Mass communities.  Our Dominican-Americans are very hard working, entrepreneurs, industrious, strong and intelligent.  They never forgot where they came from, their roots, or their families.  It was an honor to sit down and meet with Consul General Enrique Garcia Sanchez, a very smart and talented man.  My administration will continue to work with our Dominican-Americans and the Western Mass Dominican Consulate Office to support and advocate for our residents of Dominican heritage.  I am also looking forward to continuing our annual tradition of raising the Dominican Flag at City Hall to celebrate Dominican Independence Day in February.”
