Vallone Campaign Hires Romano As Cultural Affairs Liason
Councilmember Peter F. Vallone Jr. has announced he has hired Pablo M. Romano to serve as a Cultural Affairs Liaison to his campaign for Queens Borough President. Romano will be counted for outreach to various ethnic groups in Queens, with a particular focus on Queens’ Hispanic communities.
“I am thrilled to be joining Peter Vallone Jr.’s campaign for Queens Borough President. Whether as a former Assistant District Attorney, small business owner, devoted family man or proud Catholic, Peter has demonstrated he shares the values of Queens’ Hispanic community,” said Romano. “Peter is the dynamic leader we can count on to bring proactive and responsive leadership to Borough Hall.”
Romano served for two years as Advisor of Hispanic Affairs for Queens Borough President Helen Marshall. In that role, Romano was instrumental in forging unprecedented relationships with previously unrepresented communities within Queens’ diverse Hispanic population, including with residents originally hailing from Chile, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Costa Rica, Paraguay and Brazil. Romano also worked to further cultivate existing relationships between the Borough President’s office and Queens’ Argentine, Uruguayan, Venezuelan, Colombian, Ecuadorian, Bolivian, Dominican, Mexican, Puerto Rican and Peruvian communities.
Borough President Marshall appointed Romano to serve as a member of the Queens Borough President Youth Board. Romano is a member of the Queens Las Americas Lions Club and former member of the New York City Hispanic Day Parade and Queens Hispanic Parade.
“I am very excited to have Pablo Romano joining our team. Pablo’s years of experience as Advisor of Hispanic Affairs to Borough President Marshall and activism in Queens’ Hispanic community are invaluable assets to our campaign,” said Vallone. “From the very start, our campaign has been about one, united Queens and that legacy of inclusion will continue if I am honored enough to be the next borough president – looking out for and working closely with all communities.”
