Statement from Council President Sabina Matos

Feb 22, 2019 | 0 comments

It has been reported that Councilman Aponte has filed for protection under the Federal Bankruptcy Laws, and I believe that this is a personal matter. This is a decision that many Americans face every year, and it’s a difficult one.  He has a constitutional right to chart this course, and this is not something that should be used as political fodder.

Councilman Aponte’s current situation has no bearing on his role as a City Councilperson, and I ask my colleagues to be respectful as he begins this extremely private process.
