PRMA endorses González Ascar’s candidacy for PREPA board

By The Star Staff

The Puerto Rico Manufacturers Association (PRMA) on Tuesday threw its support behind Giancarlo González Ascar’s bid to represent consumers on the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) governing board.

“We are supporting González as a great candidate to address and defend matters of public interest for consumers on the Board,” PRMA President Eric Santiago Justiniano said. “His career, his training, and his avant-garde ideas are key to driving true change.”

González Ascar, an entrepreneur, has 22 years of experience. He currently works in the private sector where he advises on improving the delivery of various services to citizens and developing digital solutions.

He has experience in the public sector, where he worked to advance efficiency and provided direct solutions such as the CESCO Digital application and the opening of the Digital Cadastre, as well as automated service systems, including the Criminal Record Certificate and the Karibe Property Registry system.

The candidate also has dedicated special attention to achieving greater accessibility and transparency to electrical breakdown data and improving the quality of electrical service available on the island.

PRMA Executive Vice President Yandia Pérez emphasized that “González’s commitment to developing initiatives that help provide information and greater agility in government efforts is aligned with the Association’s commitment to supporting transparency in government processes.”

“Being the only candidate who has submitted a candidacy, we hope that the process will be carried out with the rigor it deserves and that Giancarlo will be confirmed as the consumer representative on the PREPA Board,” she added.

If elected, González Ascar will replace current consumer representative Tomás Torres Placa, who is leaving the position in March.
