Beatriz’s husband assumed office in January of 2017 as part of the New Progressive Party. However recent reports say he is stepping down after days of massive demonstrations. People of Puerto Rico took the streets to demand his resignation over crude and offensive jokes he made in secret chats.
40-year-old Ricardo Antonio “Ricky” Rosselló Nevares is the son of former governor Pedro Rosselló, and he is the first son of governor to run for governor of Puerto Rico.
Rosselló was educated at MIT and the University of Michigan. He graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering and economics and, later on, graduated from the University of Michigan with a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering.
His research focused on stem cell technology, and he worked as a researcher in this subject at Duke University. He led the Puerto Rico Students Association at his college, and served as a delegate to the Democratic Party Convention in 2008 and again in 2012.
