Giovanna Negretti is an elected MA delegate for Barack Obama. She’s also the executive director of Oiste, which describes itself as
the first and only statewide Latino civic education organization in Massachusetts. Our mission is to promote the principles and practice of democracy and to advance the political, social and economic standing of Latinos and Latinas in the state.
Also, she’s blogging at boston.com while she’s here.
As Giovanna is an Obama supporter with strong ties to a community that Obama has so far had some difficulty connecting with, I thought she would have some very interesting things to say. I was right. Give it a listen. Embarrassingly, my video camera cut out in the middle of one of her answers — she picks it up in the second part.
