PERTH AMBOY — At the invitation of Mayor Wilda Diaz, Professor Robert Montemayor will make a presentation on Hispanic demographics in the State of New Jersey to local business owners and community leaders tonight.
Montemayor is a veteran marketing executive, consultant, author and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who is providing more than 35 years of media experience to Rutgers University. He is currently Director of the Latino Information Network at Rutgers University (LIN@R) and a lecturer of media, journalism and history in the School of Communication and Information.
In 2004, Montemayor was the primary author of the book, “Right Before Our Eyes: Latinos Past, Present and Future,” a 160-page treatment focusing on the economic, political and social impact of the largest and fastest growing ethnic group in the United States.
“Perth Amboy currently has a Latino population of 78. 1 percent, as recorded in the 2010 Census,” Diaz said. “It’s important to understand and know how to reach out to the rapidly changing demographics in our city and state.”
Montemayor’s presentation is free and open to the public. It will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the City Hall Council Chambers, 260 High Street, Perth Amboy.
