Interview with Juan J. González on April 8, 2016, Segment 17

CENTRO: 100 Puerto Ricans Oral History Project, 2013-

González discusses what he sees as his most significant accomplishment in his time with the San Juan Bautista Parade: the development of a strong rapport with political entities at the municipal, county, and state levels. He notes that is where many Puerto Rican parades and festivals fail and, thus, cease to be. He provides the examples of Atlantic City and Trenton, New Jersey. González claims: “In the end, if you don’t have a good rapport with City Hall, it’s an uphill battle. And many times, a battle that you cannot win.”
