FORA.tv Speaker - Eddie A. Perez
Eddie Alberto Perez lives the American Dream everyday. As Mayor of Hartford, he wants to make that dream a reality for all residents of the Capitol City. Mr. Perez has not only made history by being the Cityâ€™s first Latino Mayor, but itâ€™s first strong mayor in more than 50 years. By changing the City Charter in 2002, he is now the CEO of Hartford. By reducing crime, raising the expectations of public school education, increasing homeownership, and creating more neighborhood economic development, Mayor Perez wants to improve the quality of life for the citizens of the city that was called the â€œHouse of Hopeâ€ by its Dutch founders.
