New London Times Launches Spanish Newspaper Edition March 28

Over 50 Latino business leaders from New London, along with city & state officials are expected to gather for a launch reception for the newly created Spanish section of the New London Times – HOLA New London.

The reception is being held at the Garde Arts Center – 325 State Street, New London at 530pm with remarks to begin at 6pm.

Brief remarks will be made by Mayor Michael Passero, State Representative Chris Soto, and State Senator Paul Formica.
“It’s been exciting to see the HOLA New London section in the New London Times. It further illustrates the rich diversity of our city and the growing strength within the Latino business community which has helped support this initiative,” said Mayor Michael Passero.

Passero added, “With the other exciting things on the horizon in New London, this newfound energy from the Latino business community will be an essential part our city’s growth.”
