We cannot seek achievemen…

We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community… Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own.

Definitely not a “Foodie”

When East Haven Mayor Joseph Maturo Jr. (Connecticut) made derogative remarks towards Latino food, he didn’t think what “Not a Foodie” he is. My preppy-self was offended by his assumption that Tacos are the only food Latinos eat.

I would love the opportunity to educate the Mayor and help him become international cuisine connaisseur.

“Mr. Maturo”, I would say “Would you be kind next time, when referring to Latin American cuisine, to mention Chiles en Nogada
( stuffed poblano chiles, covered with a creamy walnut sauce), Cochinita Pibil, or any of the other quite frankly sophisticated daily meals we Mexicans and Latinos often eat?.”

Otherwise, you will be seen as ignorant and definitely, not a Foddie

FYI – Mayor Maturo apologized for his remarks, after many leaders including Connecticut Governor Dannel P. Malloy criticized him for his cultural insensitivity. The governor said that Maturo’s comment was “repugnant” and “unacceptable.”
