Assemblyman Brian Curran has recognized the significance of the local Dominican community by honoring various Dominican business owners.
Fermin Nunez and Griselda Moronta of Mi Casa and Ramon Ortega of El Sabor Dominicano were honored for their businesses in Freeport
Francisco Rosario, who own Lucas Dominican Restaurant in Baldwin and Eduardo Leonardo of Puntacana Dominican Restaurant in Oceanside, respectively were also among those honored.
“This was truly a wonderful event, local businesses are the backbone of our economy, and to honor these local Dominican business owners so close to Dominican Republic Independence Day, just made sense,” Curran said. “In my district, we have a vibrant Dominican community, and they deserve to be recognized for the great work they do.”
Curran also urged the public to show support for locally owned businesses including Lucas Dominican Restaurant, Mi Casa, Puntacana Dominican Restaurant, and El Sabor Dominicano.
Curran emphasized the importance of contributing to the local economy.
“I urge the community to visit more of these locally-owned small businesses, that way the money you spend goes back into the community to our neighbors and friends, and if you have the chance, check out Lucas Dominican Restaurant, Mi Casa, Puntacana Dominican Restaurant, and El Sabor Dominicano because the food is absolutely delicious,” Curran said.
