Dozens of leaders and supporters of the PLD 2024 presidential candidacy received him euphorically upon his arrival yesterday morning at 11:00 am at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) where he was cheered for a long time and said that the Dominican Republic is going through a very serious crisis of jobs, rising cost of living and indebtedness.
Brito, who began a tour of several states in the northeastern United States, leading several acts of support said that Dominicans need to be channeled by new paths that generate more hope in the people and investment.
“The PLD has to work very hard to correct mistakes, why not, but to defend works and more than defending works to make proposals to improve the welfare of the people,” he added.
“That is why we are here and visiting the country to improve the quality of education and that economic growth is resumed so that inflation is controlled again in the Dominican Republic and that we can really move forward,” said Brito.
As he got off the plane, the presidential candidate was surrounded by his supporters who shouted at the top of their lungs “Francisco presidente!”.
He arrived accompanied by three members of the Political Committee (CP) of which he is also a member, Alejandro Montas, senator Iván Lorenzo and deputy Magda Rodríguez as well as Víctor Suárez, national campaign coordinator who will participate in all the activities.
Also arriving with him were Charles Núñez, general campaign director, operative director Félix García, Kenia Lora, secretary of organization and Orcina González, member of the management team.
Part of the meetings Brito will hold with representatives of the Dominican Diaspora include leaders and elected officials among them Congressman Adriano Espaillat and Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez.
Brito thanked the reception at JFK and said that he came to New York and other states to hear directly from the mouths of Dominicans the feelings and concerns of the Diaspora, which will help him to outline a national government agenda that includes the exterior, which is one of the most crucial pillars to sustain the economy, democratic and political stability in the Dominican Republic.
The pre-candidate will lead meetings and mass events in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Washington DC and Connecticut.
