compromise the right of opportunity for those who want it government programs andcontracts because this activity in their progress waswe created you may ask why i was chosen for this job theasian american simple reason is that i wanted to do and thejapanese americans who look at the mexican americans in the body odors of southern californiai like them nowhere discrimination and lack of opportunity to mei was eight years old in the united states of america in my family theconcentration camp but also know what opportunity and justice is in america johni know the private job that comes with some give you the opportunity thedignity that most all other americans has always been the birth ofrichard nixon gave me a millionaire spanish speaking americans that opportunity thatdignity he did it and it continues to do and not just because he's seeking their votes andpatronage but because he's doing what is basically right
and basically just and counselors in the vicinitythe polling stationcan you tell us when you first get a while i guess i came in thefall of nineteen sixty nine was first that at wwith iran certificate staffers assistant to him and then inthe fall of nineteen seventy came over the white house as part of a newexecutive recruiting effort at an apartment not like and apossible a deposition in thelatter position that indiamore than three years there i was part of the team that
helped recruit individuals throughout the executive branch withconsiderable emphasis in the mine leaving green area for blacks arespanish speaking and other minorities in addition to that i had recruited other individuals notfit that category for all different kinds of positions and thenthen the laptop the last two years i can correctly i was responsible in a big daybasis for programs affecting the spanish speaking korean controlso and i would be fair to say that you werewhite house liaison for opportunities thati would try to define a price in terms of mrmaliki made to meet two high level what'snow during the year of the herbal what mightbe considered a campaign in nineteen seventy two was theatm and understanding that you had witnessed a mallard with regard
to your position that you're alsoengage in seeking opportunities for updating where forspanish speaking american twenties i think it was muchbroader it's basically afelony and five yearswe're assisting eligible and qualified spanish speaking firmsin organizations took aim federal funds or whatever program they wereinvolved in this could range from npr programs health educationand economic opportunity secondly we're responsible for any specialactivities and related to spanish speaking community and one example is when presidentchampion mexico was here i believe last year and now we haveto provide some suggestions as to what states and cities and
activities that might participate in conjunction with some are spanish speaking communitywe were responsible for the communications pertain to thespanish speaking in terms of equations of publicity of cordoneighteen i first went to various agencies and the white housefor me i had a responsibility of all the recruiting efforts forspanish speaking terms primarily of presidential support they positions but inaddition to that we also assistant sixteen point program andfourthly in conjunction with the speakers the whitehouse scheduled most generous years andalso what the service program at the committee for the reelection of presidentwe had a separate spanish speaking service programthat's when the army's sometime in the year
nineteen seventy two when her vehiclewith regard to where the opportunities for granted as i'm speaking a nineteentwenties was explained in terms of relationships to workwith the committee elected president the finance committee also the variousagencies i don't think there was any discussion interms of committee for the reelection or for the finance committee which wasfirstly there was discussion in terms of tryingto get a better handle on on the grant making processwhatdoes on withour listeners will equate it with theone gentleman who headed up one part of the finance committee and this wasgroup that dealt primarily with the
spanish community called the finance committee vehemently forcechartered the first part of nineteen seventy two and had a void benjaminfernandez los altos california i'll he internedorganized a national effort and about the mostdistasteful we have a high concentration of spanish speaking and i might add that this was thefirst time that the spanish speaking community had any kind of meaningful role in anational campaign was any responsibility to engage infundraising for libya under the national hispanic finance committeechristians were this tremendous blow ithink for therevenue that goes by million dollars movies about fourhundred thousand i was at an andy lee is our working relationship didyou have with any other person in the committee elected president about was that
speaking about tax on the finance committee the committeeyesterday parliament elects on viruswas the director the spanish speaking to vision of the committee for the reelection and whatthat it was an informal arrangements set up withthe theseand other members of the community there was aninformal arrangement was very first of all we had a team abouttheir five hosts were involved in spanish speaking area anddonna rodriguez who was my deputy carlos condit was on roberts'mind staff at that time was the director communications all what theyclosely with a phobia and the rumors he was chairman of the committee anoptimist spanish speaking and fourthly and some of us we used to meevery monday afternoon beginning i believe the report
nineteen seventy two to strategize in terms of thespanish speaking role and to keep herself a breast of our cropsand this is amazingglobalizationi think there's certainly something you can and it wasdisgusting those meetings were political nature in terms of what kind ofimpact would make unspecified community yet and i think that kind ofcommitment and dedication that members of this team head was one of the advocacyrole what we felt that this was the first time in his vision gavethis particular minority group an opportunity to get into the mainstream of the americaneconomic social political i think there's a twofold

houseand to deliver and editorialwas some problem with the organization told meyou know what the need is this year but whatthe national economic development association which is suingnational spanish speaking economic development organizationfunded out of the office of minority business enterprise at the department talksyou say that i am attaching aneditorial written by anita employee opposing viewpoint made upas deputy director and they want somethingamusing office landlord business in france this is the latest example of theunwilling and the administration i think
and usuallya good and it's lined the fact of what i would reshapingthe court matter i wasmuslim cemetery commercehe waspresident of veteransof the organization what should explainlet me just explain that on this to me andif i recall correctly was responding to that thepolling doing that the past year or so we've found thatin finding a fine spanish speaking africacouple of the senior people with that decision were
very disruptive uncooperative in trying to further somebartles objects and this editorial was latest one forsome reason was recommended for the job after a nationalsearch as the number two man at the last minute as a surprisefor some reason some of the members now just in one year that they felt that he was a threatit would've been very controlling agencyfor the popei'm sorryof course the point i would make is the factthat this was the first time there's been speaking individual and opportunity to benumber one or number two positionbielawski says the unit
he was at the time the executive vice president of the organization andthat you'll ever ask him tuesday jerry avorn a demonstration in front of the losangeles times yes i don't know if ican follow to demonstrate thati was asked on that occasion by mrpaulson and the los angeles times came out with antennas visioneditorial calling particular subject wehad to as the video was organizing whodemonstrated for the los angeles times i think after acouple of very simple messages can do was thatpart of the strategy of your program that the organizations thatshow themselves beyond friendly to the administration or any individualswho were causing trouble and send information no
no idon't think so i think our main thrustwas not that so much as it was to try to enhance anddo everything we could to get the spanishspeaking people in the mainstream of thegovernment process i understand thatthat was due tobe among those who were competing in the spanish speakingcommunity that was part of this question was not out in thoseagencies as to who would get whacked in some casesrecession might be totally anti administrationthere would be a neutralizing effect of the us

within the four or five men who work on theirstaff they each had responsibility for so many departments and so manyagencies those of those schools is operations special interest groups and wouldfund any of our requests so that there was a court native effort on the white houseand the leadersand this was of his timenow they're trying towork with both of the saints have it's amemorandum from twoabout yourself now it's onwindows with temple and john adamsmr brown a special
assistant to the president and had responsibility for the black communityalso mr jones was the director of the black tradition and the committee for their actionsmr cole as the number two man at the mosque the council underthis is a different i believe was on thelegislative and congressional relations staff of the timemr evans was a member of the domestic council and among other things that responsibilityfor it outus presidents and the recently about the use ofthe audit that i thought oh thisopportunity to make a contribution and they had waited in theblack i have discussed the situation that cango on the importance of this program is a
real effect and it must be as you are but the white housebeat andibelieve thatthank youi am liberty there'sa couple that any early todaywe sat down with jon discuss the blacks and thinking problems respectivelyand sure he's fully apprised of your needs and other people is on asthat out that was at the beginning of the sort of concentration ofdealing with one person and that is that they're expecting up to this point wasfragmented for us so we're trying to jam into one office
i doso yeah we were i think of preferred wasbefore before the march nineteen seventy oneat theearthwell melissavisual the only a wave ofimproving ordination and more effective means of getting political impact andas that one about a tremendously decentralized in yourcapability to seize whereby one would obtain data regarding westof any congressional district organization publishesa system we talk about this i think on several occasions
but never could put together untilyou're beating again i guess it was at thattime was special counsel to the president inunison at a legislative office at the white house andthen there's the softwareimproving coordination and more effective means of getting political impactwe wantedit to spanish speaking and also the site that's political and thatthe installationsand what they wanti'm on page two have refined mr
evans now assuming the role that verified with the state's attended inthe world by john evans regarding my body business enterpriseas that are imposed on her greatest also be invited skulls wererecipients of grants for fiscal year seventy two as well as those being considered foradditional grants for fiscal year nineteen seventy ninewhen i represented the political rancher the committee thecampaign and one of the purpose of therecipients of the day the fiscal that seventy two as well as anadditional question says the us senate there were some instanceswhere these two cities could get a refund so forthat reason that the group was reviewed and i think there's a typographical error here in thesecond dimension to shoot rabinnow
you report that really isi'm the rhythm masters tradition asvision presented all of those materialif you set aside threehundred thousand dollars for one of our contractswhat was the meetingjimmy before answering explained whatservice under the nixon this fish and reestablished a minority business programa sba and commerce we can encourage more minoritybusiness more minorities to get into the business thisprogram which calls for set aside or department agency of fundingorganization put aside so many dollars for a minority countryin terms of our i think here we really met
one of our ownqualified competent management consultants from the communitywell this isan application within the impact that is becauseone of the meeting your best recollection of itif i recallspeaking greek do any work and transportationso that i think the site disinfect a mention of thepodcast vision there's one other notion and i think the firms names will recoverwill compete against each other so the effort here towork who preferwhich is your weekly report that enables them
to have them out in the polls and then on page twohundred and you have that as animmigrant at reporter curious and i work on the following the first thing youmentioned it's revealing with john evans brown and wallypoland where i'm going to make sure the right people are being considered andreceiving grants a right people want i think those who are eligiblefor funding you have to remember that there arevery few number of spanish speaking firms havegotten government contrast in the past several years well things and we're trying todo is get new ones and tall to make themselvesqualifying apply for federal fundsincludingso that's it yes and i think you
hear like to clear the air in terms of anyfact that we were just looking for republican contractors because in the spanishspeaking community and very very few actually looking for those whoqualify well as i think you've indicated earlier was was foryou and those who are working on this special program tofill gaps in the federal government has theresonance of the gaps in their imaginations and believe me that was to bringin more spanish speaking american peoplethatwas not the effort of the committee rejected president tobe a lot of as many of thedemocratic side the americans the president saidit would be democrats but it's
time to a distinction between a qualified sportingnowthepittsburghwhich is your weekly reports some of them out to the polls andmake twenty six nineteen seventy two and the ageto fight meand then your reports you mr mallard with boltonyou say expressed concerns over yet polio raythree million dollar grant to the mexican american unity council on thefind there are some legal kind of trying them all they promisedat least the opposition
i think this is a situation where they had received anyaggression or you know before sunrise that they've had beenthrough that it weren't necessarily supported the administration and listen and koreais trying to find them and checkingwith their general counsel we found goodquestion i don't recall someso the average loan fund them really was based on their body that they were notsupport of musicthat was always thebalance that has been seenas another one of the reports of my thought about the
polls and if he'll send a bakeryand well rodriguez is in theprocess of developing the list of all federal employeesrage he has fourteen and out for various uses by sevens you know why not say theone we're on standby now on this to me was that the military like the presidentbut what use is where they made ofthe federal employees great ideas for him outthey seem to be goingpurpose of this particular project all that i can recall frozen played itbecause you could not get any computer thati can recall that proposal intended purpose was trying toidentify who they were you know we can get them to assist us inidentifying programs that you can get involved in addition
to help the state that the case in terms of demonstrations studentswhat he'soblivious fourteen and over there's a state task force for the administrationis i mean you werewhat roll it might guess but i don't think we asked them to getinvolved politically to to articulate to the best to the nazi achievements ofthese ministries and a general sense that might be a legitimateuse of income because of the un programs in they could demonstrate them this wouldalso have an impact on the campaignsixteen you reportand another weekly report was not often rodriguez
medley well as a measure to talk aboutsetting is that doesn't have money for some about republicansetting asidebut you know i was at itthe widow of thousands of money for some ofyour republican i think perceived as this is one ofvery few times that the republican has ever been written in thesereports i don't think that that intentionally intentwas all rightmr lombardo and i think you have medically obese they'vebeen the main question and this actually made it there was a very substantialeffort made on your car uses spanish speaking americans andamerican businesses but i think it is fair to
say that in the effort to doso there was in kept in mind the political impact thatsuch an activity would have as another factor was preference thatyou've already indicated on a number occasions but those were supported by thebundling of the number these references to reports it's a show repeatedly andreports some of them out and is suppose that you're reporting meetings withthis federal agencies in which an effort was made to want to establish a relationshipand two i'm saying and irresponsible rebel un programpreference for supportive does that isthat a fair statement nowthere isthe memorandum that i won't notice
would be different with that in total talk about these in general theidea with particular that happensthat youknow is that the you know thisis the last clue a company were what they dothe services and in his firm's jamisonsolutions has been he just had his own firm here in the districtfor a little over ten years or soplease democrat pleaded up the marylandvirginia district committee for the national hispanic finance committeea number of yourmind you indicate that progress has been madethroughout the tang clans for him or what programs that so
he had already received some governmentcontracts and before this program by the administration thenthey're in a course of our effort again was a lotof that it had received a few years well wehave refrained from time to time and you said it repeatedly youqualified spanish speaking americanbusinessman how our bt chairman larry to theirbusiness was qualified or not when you look over graham who made that decision it wasthe program the agency will of the vices thefirm was totally unqualified we would have to explain that to happennext to these firms that i would say generally speakingthat most of the firms that's made proposals won't qualify
this question of theseasonyou mentionedand leon all of libya are qualified theagency would report that you and you would not press for prayerthat's rightit was not support the ministrations was more qualified than another was aboardthe preference would be given that one was for years and i think that thatwas an exceptional situationrose's organization was thatyes i think so i
generally did not deal directly with these contractorsconsultants security that it was very big yes i think thatwe as the mysteries of my staff bits and checking onhim two or three agencies were really good of the countrywell another number that's right there were friends of those systems within therest who as you say was the head of the year both the ceo ofmaryland and virginia is that it or finance committee for the presidenton that tax can you march thirty one reportpage three the nineteenforty oneoccasion of polio of washington of the citybut then you look at that fifteenpage to
