SAN JUAN – The vice president of the New Progressive Party (NPP), Jenniffer González Colón, on Monday became the first candidate for resident commissioner in Washington, D.C., to meet the number of endorsements required to participate in the June primary.

González Colón delivered a total of 8,353 endorsements, exceeding the required 8,000, thus complying with the regulations for the nomination processes for political parties, independent candidacies and the processes before the primary and general elections of the State Elections Commission (CEE by its Spanish initials).

The NPP spokeswoman in the House of Representatives had already handed in 6,820 endorsements and delivered another 1,533 to the CEE Monday morning.

The former House speaker said that with the endorsements and the support she received during the weekend, “not only have I remained solid in the race for resident commissioner in Washington, receiving the backing of the palm’s [the NPP’s] leadership, but also the continued support of my brethren to become the first woman resident commissioner has been demonstrated.”
