Chairman Bovo supports the Venezuelan people in their struggle for democracy


MIAMI-DADE – Miami-Dade County Commission Chairman Esteban Bovo Jr. expressed his support for the people of Venezuela following their massive turnout in Sunday’s referendum, in which they overwhelmingly rejected the Maduro government’s push to rewrite the South American nation’s constitution.

“We stand in solidarity with the Venezuelan people in their struggle for democracy, respect for human rights and return to the rule of law,” Chairman Bovo said. “This is only the beginning.”
