Washington, D.C. – The National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials
(NALEO) announced today that Governor Mitt Romney, the presumptive Republican
presidential nominee, will address the nation’s Latino leadership at the organization’s 29th
Annual Conference on Thursday, June 21, in Orlando, Florida.

“The Latino electorate has become a permanent fixture on the political landscape of this
country,” said Sylvia R. Garcia, NALEO President. “With the election nearing, the NALEO
membership is looking forward to the opportunity to learn more about Governor Mitt Romney
and his position on issues of importance to our constituents and the Latino community.”
The appearance will occur during a three-day convention of more than 1,000 Latino public
officials and their supporters working at all levels of government in communities across the
nation. Conference participants will join political and policy leaders for panel discussions on
education, health, financial empowerment, broadband adoption and the growing clout of Latino
voters in American politics.

“We are grateful that Governor Mitt Romney has accepted our invitation to join us and address
the nation’s Hispanic leadership at our annual conference next month,” said Juan C. Zapata,
Chairman of the NALEO Educational Fund. “Hispanic officials are eager to hear more about the
Governor’s plans for the country and his thoughts on the Hispanic community's aspirations and
concerns.”

The NALEO 29th Annual Conference will take place less than four months before Latino voters
are expected to turn out in record numbers for the November elections, with at least 12.2 million
casting ballots, according to projections released by the NALEO Educational Fund. Latinos –
now one of out every six Americans – are set to exhibit extraordinary influence at the polls this
year, likely supplying the margin of victory in several states and contests.
