Day 35

Danilo Medina

February 3rd, 2012

He's running for president of the Dominican Republic. I learned this when I saw his face a hundred times today in Washington Heights and Inwood. There are almost 600,000 Dominicans living in NYC (making them the most populous foreign nationality in the city), and since 2004 they've been able to cast votes for their national elections from polling centers here in New York.
