Press Release

Washington, DC —Congressman José E. Serrano today congratulated Ramón Orta for being named Secretary of the Puerto Rico Department of Recreation and Sports by Governor-elect Alejandro García Padilla. Ramón Orta served as an intern in Congressman Serrano’s office in the fall of 2000 as part of the Córdova-Fernos Congressional Internship program.

“I had the pleasure to have Ramón work in my office a few years ago as an intern from the Córdova-Fernos Internship program, which I created together with then-Senator Kenneth McClintock,” said Congressman Serrano. “Since its creation more than 15 years ago, dozens of interns from that program have worked in my congressional office. I always try to impart to them the importance of public service and of democratic dialogue. I always emphasize that spending part or all of your career in public service is a noble way to help your community. It seems that Ramón took that advice to heart and has dedicated himself to serving Puerto Rico. I applaud his choice and wish him success as he takes on this new posting.”

Washington, DC -- El congresista José Serrano felicitó el miércoles al joven puertorriqueño Ramón Orta por su designación como Secretario del Departamento de Recreación y Deportes de Puerto Rico, designado por el Gobernador Electo Alejandro García Padilla.  

"Tuve el placer de tener a Ramón trabajando como interno en mi oficina durante el semestre otoño de 2000, como parte del Programa Córdova-Fernos de Internados Congresionales que yo creé junto con el entonces senador Kenneth McClintock.  Docenas de internos del Programa Córdova han laborado en  mi oficina congresional a lo largo de más de 15 años y siempre les enfatizaba la importancia de regresar a Puerto Rico y a dedicar aunque fueran unos años al servicio público, y Ramón evidentemente nos hizo caso", indicó el congresista Serrano.
