Today was a historic day in our City with the first parade honoring Hispanic Heritage month. It was such an exciting community event attended by residents, business owners, community organizations and elected officials (City Councilors Susan Nicastro, Jeff Thompson, Rita Mendes, School Committee member Tim Sullivan, and Plymouth County District Attorney Tim Cruz). A special thank you to Ines Figueroa and the Latin Woman's Association for helping organize the parade with the help of Police Chief Brenda Perez, Fire Chief Brian Nardelli, Police Captain Mark Porcaro of the City's traffic commission, and Parking Authority Director Eric Akesson. Today was another example of showcasing and proudly supporting the diversity that makes Brockton the "City of Champions". ... See MoreSee Less
