Joe Martinez – Miami Dade County District 11 Commissioner (Event Photo)

In this June 2009 shot we have none other then Dade County’s District 11 Commissioner Joe Martinez. The Commissioner is seen here during an interview at the annual “Cuban Memorial.”  The Memorial is an event held on the fair grounds every year in June/July to remember those lost during the communist regime of Fidel Castro in Cuba. The ones lost are represented with labeled crosses making a makeshift graveyard to give a visual representation of the lives taken. Family members and friends get a chance to pay their respect to those no longer with us. This is a snapshot taking during his interview(s) with local media discussing the importance of the event in the community.
