New York State Model Senate Session Project Participants/Videos 2009
Hostos breaks its own 2008 record and sends eleven students to the 2009 New York State Model Senate!
Maria Delgado (D) represented District 26 and sat in the seat of New York State Senator Liz Kruegar. In her second appearance at the New York State Model Senate, Maria expressed her position is a succinct and efficient manner and in return appeared to be a target of many of her Republican rivals for her rather unique position on the issue of Fair Share Tax Reform. Maria is currently enrolled in the Nursing Program at Hostos and she has been a Hostos Student Ambassador for two years and will serve as a senator in the Student Government Association for the 2009-2010 academic year. Maria has received praise for her commitment to service and the City University of New York from CUNY Trustees Hugo Morales and Philip Alfonso Berry. (This was Maria’s second appearance at the Model Senate. She also was a participant in 2008.)
