By The Star Staff
Senate President José Luis Dalmau Santiago announced Monday that the Appointments Committee over which he presides will be evaluating the appointment of Vilmarie Rivera Sierra as women’s advocate on Thursday.
Dalmau Santiago said Rivera Sierra completed the delivery of the documents required by the committee, so the public hearing was scheduled and will be held in Leopoldo Figueroa Hall at the Capitol starting at 1:30 p.m.
At the public hearing, the senators who are members of the Appointments Committee will have the opportunity to ask questions of the appointee and evaluate her performance in the position she currently occupies on an interim basis.
Meanwhile, the Senate president announced that today at 1 p.m. the Appointments Committee will also evaluate several appointments to the Industrial Commission. The nominees are Melissa Massheder Torres, Samuel Silva Rosas, and for a new term, Ramón Cruz Alicea. The hearing will be held in Leopoldo Figueroa Hall.
