Three-term Villalba Mayor Luis Javier Hernández Ortiz will file his candidacy for an at-large Senate seat on Dec.10 at 10 a.m. at the headquarters of the Popular Democratic Party (PDP) on Constitution Avenue in Puerta de Tierra.
The Puerto Rico Mayors Association president called on party members to accompany him and listen to his platform and proposals.
“It is a great challenge in my professional career, and as a public servant, and for this reason I want to be accompanied by the people who believe in me and also by the people in whom I believe,” Hernández Ortiz said. “My intention is to present my platform for the next election and in the same way, what my priorities will be.”
He said his objective is to achieve a large PDP majority and that the spaces that need to be filled are filled by the good people who have become available.
“There is a lot of work to be done, I have the platform to work on it and I am ready so that together we can capitalize on each of our resources and use them for the benefit of the entire team of senators as well as the candidates for the next electoral contest,” Hernández Ortiz said.
Candidates for at-large Senate seats will not have to face party primaries next summer.
