Longtime Ironbound Resident Renato Baptista Honored

On behalf of the Newark Municipal Council, East Ward Councilman Augusto Amador presented a proclamation and a commemorative portrait painting by Camilo Satiro, an acclaimed local artist, to longtime Ironbound resident Renato Baptista for his dedication and contributions to the Ironbound and Brazilian communities in Newark.

At the presentation ceremony during the Ironbound Business Improvement District (IBID) September board meeting, Councilman Amador noted his respect and admiration for Baptista, a retired businessman who serves as Treasurer of the Ironbound District’s board of directors. “This is a testimony to what Renato Baptista has meant to this community for more than 50 years and to his work on behalf of the people of Newark,” the Councilman noted.

 In addition to the commemorative painting, artist Camilo Satiro will also sculpt the new Ironbound Immigrants Memorial.
