We recently met with the County Executive and expressed some of the concerns of the Latino community in Chautauqua County. Migration from Puerto Rico, driving license card, the need for certified bilingual ESL teachers, and the need for a Latino business resource center ware discussed. The Hispanic Community Council will continue to advocate and push for much needed resources for Chautauqua County Hispanics.
Hispanics are the fastest growing population in Chautauqua County, and we must lay the foundation for the future. "We are Here, Growing and United"
