Rep. Joe Crowley (D-Queens, the Bronx) was joined this week by Queens businessman Manuel Miranda, president of Delicias Andinas, during President Obama’s address to the Joint Session of Congress. Ahead of the President’s remarks, Rep. Crowley and Mr. Miranda met to discuss efforts to spur economic growth and create jobs in Queens and New York.
“As the president of a family-run business in Queens, Manuel brings a unique perspective to the challenges facing New York’s businesses and residents,” said Rep. Crowley. “Family-owned, small businesses like Delicias Andinas are the bread and butter of our economy and the heart of Queens, and I am pleased Manuel could join me for the President’s speech. Manuel’s business might be small, but his ideas, insight and experience are all great and I look forward to continuing to engage him and other New York business leaders on how best to keep our nation’s future bright and prosperous.”
