Grandpa. The Mayor.
My father is the Mayor of my hometown. He is the first Latino Mayor in Massachusetts history. We’ve been on different sides of the political spectrum in the past but I have always been proud of his incredible career. He’s done a ton for the community and cares deeply about helping the residents of Lawrence.
I’m incredibly proud. The kids are too young to understand but they love visiting Abuelo aka “Spanish Grandpa”, as Preston calls him, in his city hall office.
Here are a few shots from our visit a few weeks ago.These photos mean a lot to me because they’re of my family (of course) but my Abuelita’s photos are in the background. It’s almost like she was there. She passed away when I was pregnant with Cameron. They never met.
It’s nice having a photo of them together. Well, at least in the same shot. May she rest in peace.
