SAN JUAN – Governor Pedro Rafael Pierluisi Urrutia and Secretary of State Larry Seilhamer were sworn in on Saturday in the Supreme Court, prior to the formal activity on the grounds of El Capitolio.
“I have already entrusted myself to the Lord. I am with my close family and very eager to start working. Now the beginning of this new administration is formalized. As soon as I give my message, which is a message that I hope will motivate our people to unite in these next four years to do work, to make a difference, I am going to Fortaleza to work, ”Pierluisi said upon his arrival at the Supreme Court.
“I am going to issue new Executive Orders, to review others that will come out from tomorrow on, because there is no time to lose,” he added.
When asked about some of the Executive Orders that he would be signing, he mentioned one that will prohibit the use of official photographs of the governor on duty in government offices.
“It seems to me that in Puerto Rico today we have to be very conscientious about expenses. That expense is not justified. It is not a matter of boasting or bragging when one is here temporarily, “he said.
Pierluisi Urrutia was sworn in in an intimate ceremony by the presiding judge, Maite Oronoz Rodríguez.
