Three men talking to each other

BBG Board member Victor Ashe visited the Office of Cuba Broadcasting  (OCB) headquarters on May 21 to express his support for employees who have continued providing news and information to the island as usual despite the damage and disruption caused by a recent fire.  Governor Ashe met with senior managers and other staff throughout the organization, including American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) leadership. He also participated in an employee appreciation luncheon and toured the facilities, which sustained smoke and water damage to the newsroom and other parts of the building from the April 21 blaze.
