PR GOP to hold state convention this weekend
By The Star Staff
The Republican Party of Puerto Rico will conclude for the first time its four-year reorganization, holding a state convention that will feature party officials at the local, national and congressional levels.
The event will take place over three days, from Friday to Sunday, at the Caribe Hilton Hotel in San Juan, the party’s state president Ángel Cintrón García announced Thursday.
The convention will begin on Friday with the registration of delegates, the ribbon-cutting ceremony and a welcome cocktail to conclude the evening.
Saturday’s work will begin with more delegate registration, followed by the Young Republica]ns State Assembly. Party officials at the national level (RNC) who will come from Washington, D.C. for the event will provide training and form a statehood accountability panel. The day will end with a dinner and party.
“We will conclude on Sunday at 10 a.m. with the 30th State Assembly closing the islandwide reorganization process and the election of our state leadership for the 2023-2027 term before delegates from across the island,” Cintrón García said. “I am sure that with this great event we will emerge strengthened as a community with our clear priorities to defend our American citizenship and fight for statehood for Puerto Rico.”
The convention will be attended by RNC President Drew McKissick, national delegates Zoraida Fonalledas and former governor Luis Fortuño, Resident Commissioner Jenniffer González Colón and several U.S. congressmen, among other special guests.
