It is an honor to be recognized for my service by our outstanding Governor,” Navarro said.
Y. Maria Martinez, chair of the Governor’s Commission on Hispanic Affairs , wrote to Navarro and praised how the Hispanic community has flourished under Governor Martin O’Malley and Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown government, but acknowledged that O’Malley’s administration could not have done without people like Navarro.
“Our community’s achievements have been made possible because of this administration’s commitment to diversity and the belief in the dignity and respect of every individual. However, we also [know] that we could not have done this without the individuals like you who are committed to working on behalf of the Hispanic community to make this State a great place,” Martinez said.
