Lieutenant Governor Nuñez on her upbringing
“My parents were from Cuba. They came to this country [America] in 1961, obviously fleeing tyranny and communism and oppression. Their focus really throughout their entire time here in this country was to provide for a better future for me and for my sisters. They were really big on hard work, determination, and education, and patriotism. They love this country.”
Lieutenant Governor Nuñez on Florida’s handling of the pandemic
“We made difficult decisions. We protected those most vulnerable… but we also recognize this was a dual crisis- a global health pandemic and also an economic crisis… Every job is essential.”
Lieutenant Governor Nuñez on being a minority woman in a leadership position
“It’s a big privilege. It’s a big responsibility too because there are a whole host of young women, young hispanics that can look and say wow she became the first Hispanic female Lt. Governor. And I wear that, of course, as a badge of honor. But, I also tell people make sure whatever you do and whatever category or industry you want to make a name for yourself in, do it with passion, do it with pride.”
