Haitian-American Elsie Saint-Louis in Bill de Blasio transition team

The new Mayor elected in New York, Bill de Blasio, has assembled a total of 60 individuals to be part of his Transition group and one prominent Haitian-American is part of this team.


Haitian-American community leader Elsie Saint-Louis has been selected to be one of the advisors helping the incoming New York mayor craft his administration.

Elsie Saint Louis has been the Executive Director of Haitian-Americans United for Progress for many years. She has been very vocal in addressing the needs and concerns of the Haitian immigrant community in New York City over the years.

By all counts, becoming member of a transition team is considered to be a very powerful position. Having Haitian representation in something so critical will put us around the table . The members are responsible to help the new New York Mayor to assemble people for various positions in his government.

If Haitian-American Elsie Saint-Louis plays her cards right, this can contribute greatly to the advancement of the Haitian community in New York City.

One step forward for the Haitian community in New York City

Vive Bill de Blasio !
