Mapp Administration's Steps to Engage Latinos

Regarding my repost on engaging Latinos, I do want to give credit to the Mapp administration for taking many steps to do so.

It is now the norm to see city fliers in English and Spanish. The Plainfield Advisory Commission on Hispanic Affairs has been revived and honors the diverse communities within the Latino population of Plainfield. I believe there has been more of an effort to employ bilingual individuals in police, fire, and other divisions that interact heavily with the public. A directory of city services was printed in English and Spanish.

There are probably more examples, but these are the ones that come to mind right now. They bode well for achieving even greater engagement of Latinos by 2021.
