Senate receives documents for Labor secretary nominee
By John McPhaul
Senate Appointments Committee Chairman Héctor Martínez confirmed on Thursday that the Senate has already received documents from the nominated secretary of the island Department of Labor and Human Resources, Carlos Santiago Rivera, who could be confirmed on Tuesday of next week.
“I’d have to see. That appointment came about 48 hours ago to the Senate,” Martínez said in a radio interview. “He[Santiago Rivera] already delivered all the documents. He was already confirmed as prosecutor last November 2019 and is prominent as an adviser to the governor on labor matters.”
Martínez said the nominee only had to update some documents after having already made the required submissions to the Senate before being confirmed as a prosecutor in November.
