Quotes

"Hollywood-Fort Lauderdale International Airport's new south runway is a gamechanger for South Florida and the entire region. I am proud to have been a part of a broad coalition of community leaders that worked over the past several years to secure the support necessary to realize this project. With nearly $250 million in federal funding and additional state resources, the new runway is a prime example of investing in our nation's infrastructure to create new economic opportunities. It has already created over 10,500 new jobs and will inject $1.42 billion into the local and national economy. Furthermore, the increased airline traffic capacity will improve efficiency and the passenger experience, while also fostering greater tourism, trade, and local manufacturing."
Páramo is the author of "Looking for Esperanza: The Story of a Mother, a Child Lost, and Why They MatterMatter to Us" winner of the 2011 Benu Press Social Justice and Equity Award in Creative Nonfiction...
"When I think about what my buddies went through and the sacrifices that they made, that touches my heart."
"Sea level rise, ocean acidification, contamination of our fresh drinking water," Hastings said. "Because we are surrounded by the ocean, the effects and the impacts of sea level rise are tremendously important."
