During public comment of Wednesdayâ€™s Hillsborough County Commission meeting, one activist spoke in favor of the idea of increasing the number of districts in the county to make it more likely a Latino commissioner could be elected.
Maria Asuncion Lopez from Seffner is the founder and president of the nonprofit organization Voz y AcciÃ³n de Puerto Rico.
In other news from Wednesday's meeting, Commissioners voted unanimously and without discussion to sue fossil-fuel company BP. The county says it lost almost $43 million because of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.
