The New Progressive Party delegation in the island House of Representatives, led by its minority leader Carlos “Johnny” Méndez Núñez, highlighted the work of Rep. Ángel Bulerín Ramos on Monday before his retirement from the Legislative Assembly after 55 years of public service, including eight four-year terms as a representative and one as mayor of Río Grande.

“The history of the Legislative Assembly is marked by the legacy of many leaders. Among these must be mentioned the colleague and friend Ángel Bulerín Ramos, who has served for the past five decades in public service, always ensuring to improve the quality of life of the residents of the eastern part of the island, particularly his beloved municipality of Río Grande, as well as Canóvanas and Loíza,” Méndez Núñez said. “Bulerín Ramos is an example of dedication, commitment and hard work. His passion for the constituents will be missed by all.”

Sunday marked the last ordinary session in which Bulerín Ramos, who is retiring at the end of the year, would participate.

“Since being sworn in as representative in 1993, Bulerín has been key in the development of the Eastern region,” the former House speaker continued. “He was one of the promoters of one of the most important road infrastructure projects in the past 50 years, the PR-66 state highway, better known as ‘Route 66.’ He also promoted the development of a breakwater for the tourism sector of Piñones, in Loíza, as well as numerous infrastructure projects in Canóvanas. Always working, that’s Bulerín.”
