In this issue we celebrate the 38 years of service of an extraordinary public servant, Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. An indefatigable defender of women, Hispanics, our military, the people of Florida and our country at large. The Congresswoman has never been afraid to take a stand while extending a hand across the aisle and willingness to work with members of the opposing party to advance the cause of the American people. It has been my distinct pleasure to have work with her since 1988. When we were facing all kinds of opposition to the launching of our magazine, she was the one that encouraged us to take the bull by the horns and move forward without delay. The success of LATINA Style could never have happened without her support. In our 24 years of existence she has graced our cover now six times, the most I am sure anybody will ever be featured. We wish our friend the very best in her new endeavors moving forward, I am sure that she will not be far from anyone she can help.
