Mayor flies out for Florida T20
West Indian cricket fans in Florida jumped for joy when the Windies team defeated New Zealand in the first T20 match at the Central Broward Regional Park, Lauderhill, Florida on Saturday. For scores of Florida-based Trinis the game was an emotional event. Also in attendance were 50-plus supporters from Chaguanas, led by mayor Orlando Nagessar and deputy mayor Gopaul Boodan, who flew in for the match.
Boodhan said: “Its good that we had this victory. It created a sense of not only patriotism among nationals of the various countries making up the WI team, but it contributed to the growing unity amongst our people.” Nagessar said he planned to meet with Rickard Kaplan, mayor of the city of Lauderhill, to discuss sporting and cultural ventures. The majority of Trinidadians and Tobagonians at the venue were in an all inclusive party stand.
