I met with Reginaldo Haslett-Marroquin at the Rueb yesterday afternoon (click photo to enlarge), getting up to speed on his plan to create a Latino enterprise/economic development center for the area — and trying to convince him to join the blogosphere, natch.
I first came across his name when he posted insightful comments (#21 and #27) to our weblog discussion thread on the Las Delicias closing.
Reginaldo works as the Community Services Site Specialist for Greenvale Park Elementary School. See his bio (pdf) for a pretty interesting background. Example: Anyone heard of Peace Coffee?
Also, see Anne Bretts’ blog post on Northfield.org earlier this week reporting on the meeting he organized last week to incorporate planning for immigration raids into the city’s emergency preparedness plan. (Another meeting planned for this Friday, 6 p.m. at St. Dominic’s Church.)
If you’re interested in contacting Reginaldo, contact me and I’ll forward your email to him.
