May 2, 2007 | Citizenship Now! with Allan Wernick
Accompanying Mayor Michael Bloomberg on a visit to the CUNY/Daily News Citizenship Now! Call-in, Guillermo Linares, Commissioner of the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs, talks about the importance of public/private partnerships such as these. As the first Dominican-American to hold public office in the United States (he was elected to the New York City Council in 1991), Commissioner Linares reflects on why this week-long effort has personal significance to him.
