WEST HAVEN, June 15, 2018 — Mayor Nancy R. Rossi presents Diego Gomez Pickering, consul general of Mexico to New York City, with a framed collage of pencil drawings of West Haven’s most recognizable icons and landmarks Friday afternoon, June 15, at City Hall as Police Chief John Karajanis Jr. looks on.
Gomez Pickering in turn presented Rossi with a copy of the book “A New Compact History of Mexico.”
Gomez Pickering, who was appointed consul general by Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto in June 2016, met with Rossi and Karajanis to discuss Mexican nationals living in West Haven and forging a partnership with the city on behalf of the Mexican Consulate in New York.
The consul general is a career diplomat as well as a writer and journalist, having worked for CNN in Mexico City and the Americas edition of The Wall Street Journal.
From December 2013 until arriving in New York in 2016, he served as ambassador of Mexico to the United Kingdom.
According to his official online biography, Gomez Pickering “acknowledges that Mexico must regain the position we had in the international arena two decades ago and considers that the country is coming to the end of ‘a number of difficult years’ focused on internal issues.”
