Ariel Ortega is NOT General Ricardo de Ortega y Diez[edit]

why does the Argentinian soccer player Ariel Ortega appear instead of General Ricardo de Ortega y Diez? The filename looks correct, but for some reason it is displaying the wrong picture. I'm not smart enough to fix this, but seems like someone should as this is a featured list and it is a pretty obvious error

Image copyright problem with Image:Pedroross.jpg[edit]

The image Image:Pedroross.jpg is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.

Governor addition to the list?[edit]

George C. Butte per his article: "In 1925, after his gubernatorial defeat, President Calvin Coolidge named Butte attorney general of Puerto Rico. He was thereafter vice-chairman of the Puerto Rican Public Service Commission and governor of the island from 1926-1927." This statement should be checked, if not then removed from originating article, or if True, added to this list. QuAzGaA 18:00, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

  • Update I found here where it mentions he served as acting governor 3 times and have corrected his article. I do not know if this would qualify for the list. QuAzGaA 18:08, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

Munoz Marin's national affiliation[edit]

Luis Munoz Marin was a national Democrat. The Partido Popular Democratico was created in 1938 as a counterbalance to what was then called the Partido Estado Republicano (which would eventually become the Partido Nuevo Progreista) - as you can probably guess the PER (and it's predecessor the Union Party & the Republican Union fusion with the Socialists) affiliated with the Republican Party. The party and it's members have always identified with the national Democratic Party - up until the late 1960s it WAS the Democratic Party within Puerto Rico. This is in contrast with the PNP which has both Democrats and Republicans. 69.115.242.114 (talk) 20:34, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

Yes, that's true, but Muñoz Marín never subscribed to the Democratic Party formally. In other words, yes, he influenced the party but never formally signed a document to subscribe to the party. We have provided a reference to reflect this. Hope this clears things up. —Ahnoneemoos (talk) 01:48, 11 August 2013 (UTC)

Sobre Gobernadores[edit]

Debo de aclarar la información sobre quie fue el primer gobernador que tuvo Puerto Rico.
El primer gobernador que tuvo Puerto Rico lo fue Martín Alonso Pinzón y erjercio su mandato
fuera de tierra borincana.

La isla de Puerto Rico tuvo varios nombres, entre ellos Baneque (banek)Caribe que luego se le dio a las aguas enserrada por las antillas. La palabra Borike (Bo-Ri-K)quiere tierra santa o paraizo o tierra de Dios. también, entre los aborígenes de los que hoy dia se conoce como las americacas, la isla del encantU se conoció como la tierra de las mujeres.

Hay muchas cosas mas que se desconocen.

Who calls him Ricky?? Ricardo Rosselló[edit]

Maybe some do in PR but the news media always refers to him as Ricardo Rosselló

see https://www.google.ca/search?q=governor+of+puerto+rico&oq=governor+of+puerto+rico&aqs=chrome.0.0l6.5226j0j4&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8#tbs=qdr:m&q=governor+of+puerto+rico++Rossell%C3%B3

Should this article not refer to him in the same manner? Peter K Burian (talk) 21:18, 23 February 2017 (UTC)
