Reciban mi respetuoso saludo y buenos deseos para todos y cada uno de Ustedes. Quiero agradecer al compatriota Hector Santillan por el gratificante correo que nos envio, comunicandonos la candidatura de nuestra compatriota Jessica Tavara al cargo de Concejal en la ciudad de Lebanon - Pennsylvania.
Espero de que todos podamos hacer contacto con ella para mostrarle nuestro apoyo y motivarla a que siga adelante. Le he hecho llegar el correo electronico: peruanosenNJ@
Asi que si lee este correo, sabra de que aqui en Nueva Jersey ya conocemos sobre su candidatura y estaremos en contacto para saber como podemos colaborar con ella.
Lebanon es una ciudad con 24,461 habitantes (censo 2000), 11 kilometros cuadrados y el 16.43 % de su poblacion es latina. Jessica Tavara seria la primera latina en ganar ese sillon y por supuesto nuestro orgullo peruano en esa zona.
A continuacion un articulo donde habla de como se siente con la nominacion de la Juez latina Sonia Sotomayor. Tambien adjunto parte de su biografia.
Gracias por leerme.
David Toledo, MA
NOTA: Estimada Jessica, si tenemos el honor de que leas este correo te comunico de que hay dos grupos mas de peruanos que estarian interesados en conocerte:
Kudos for nominee — from another

Like Sotomayor, Tavara is a Latina who has had to overcome obstacles to get to where she is today.
"It's not just the fact that she's a Latina," said Tavara, who herself became a nominee last week when Democratic voters put her on the ballot for one of two available seats on City Council. "She's a very prestigious individual who has a lot of experience and lots of struggles and had to overcome a lot of obstacles to get to where she's at right now."
Sotomayor, who grew up in a Bronx housing project, was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes that forced her to start insulin injections at age 8. Her father died the next year, and she was raised by her mother, a nurse who worked long hours.
She graduated from Princeton, then Yale's law school, then joined the Manhattan district attorney's office. She was nominated to the federal bench in 1992 by President George H.W. Bush.
Tavara, meanwhile, grew up in Peru and moved to Elizabeth, N.J., in 1988, where she graduated from St. Patrick's High School. She moved to Lebanon in 1994.
A single mother to three children, Tavara works at Mid Penn Legal Services in Lebanon as an ombudsman for residents of senior homes. She is treasurer for the Lebanon Hispanic Center, where she teaches citizenship classes; Secretary of the Lebanon County Council
of Human Services; a member of the board of Sexual Assault Resource and Counseling Center of Lebanon County; and was appointed by Gov. Ed Rendell to serve on the Governor's Advisory Commission on Latino Affairs as liaison to Lebanon County's Hispanic residents.
"When I found out about her, I was so inspired by her I put her on my Facebook," Tavara said. "When I found out about this great woman and all her accomplishments, I wanted everyone to know about her."
Lebanon County Democratic Committee Chairman Chris Tarsa had similar words of praise for the nominee.
"I think it's really neat that you have someone like Obama and his pick — it's people coming from humble beginnings achieving the highest level in their chosen profession," he said.
Lebanon County Republican Committee Chairwoman Faith Bender said that, while she thought it was positive that Sotomayor is the first Hispanic nominated for the high court, she hopes people don't get caught up in the euphoria.
"She is subject to the same vetting process by the Senate that any judicial nominee would be put through," Bender said.
Bender said she had heard of Sotomayor before Tuesday's announcement but admitted that she didn't know a whole lot about her.
"She does have a reputation for being a rather liberal judge," Bender said. "Over the next few weeks, I'm sure the American people and the Senate will find out a lot about her."
