As former Mayor of the great Village of Ridgewood, business professional, active volunteer in youth sports and my parish, and a member of nonprofit boards, I have always worked hard to build a strong future for my six wonderful children and give back to the community that has done so much for me and my family.
More than 30 years ago, my family and I came to this country from the Dominican Republic and found a welcoming home in Ridgewood. I have always believed in the promise of the American dream and I am so proud that two years ago I had the honor of becoming the first ever Latino Mayor of Ridgewood.
I believe such an achievement was possible because we live in the greatest country in the world. I also believe that we are fortunate to live in the greatest county in New Jersey – with excellent schools, thriving businesses, good jobs, beautiful parks and safe, strong communities and outstanding nonprofit organizations like the Ridgewood YMCA.
The YMCA welcomes and supports all, from children to seniors, by teaching the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. We are for everyone: girls, boys, men and women of all ages, races, religions and incomes and abilities. Membership is open to all.
Our Mission: The Ridgewood YMCA offers programs and community connections that positively impact lives through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, building spirit, mind and body for all.
