Former Director, Infrastructure Division, New York City Council
(now in Private Practice)
With tremendous enthusiasm and energy, Roberto took ownership of whatever policy area or issue he was asked to work on. The end result of these efforts were logically-reasoned policy analyses and recommendations presented in an easily understandable format and perceptive questions to be posed at legislative hearings. He recognized and was mindful of the perspectives of multiple stakeholders, shared information as appropriate, and sought to make sure that respective points of view were taken into consideration. He was conscientious about taking “next steps” based upon what was heard at legislative hearings, discussions with stakeholders and work previously performed.
