Meet Robert Colinsk, Financial Analyst in the Bureau of Finance. He is inspired by Ted Williams.

"Ted Williams is a constant inspiration for me. Not only was he of Mexican descent on his mother’s side, but he was one of the greatest hitters of all time, in the Baseball Hall of Fame, but he was a U.S. Marine aviator and fought in World War 2 and the Korean War, stepping away from professional sports each time."

Thank you for following along our #HispanicHeritageMonth celebration.
