By Javier ManjarresIt’s not exactly a secret in some Miami social circles, but Jeanette Rubio has been working for Norman Braman’s family charitable foundation- for quite some time now. The “American Son’s” wife has long been the cornerstone of the family, but now that the youngest one is in school and her husband is off the campaign trail for at least 4 more years, Mrs. Rubio was able to take the job opportunity the Braman’s have offered her.
Jeanette Rubio has always prided herself in being involved with local charities and organizations that primarily focus on the family.
According to our sources who first hand knowledge, Mrs. Rubio’s consulting work is very time consuming work that organizes the foundation’s biannual awards process, as she is responsible for compiling information, reviewing applications and visiting project sites. According to my sources it is actually Senator Rubio who increasingly finds himself at home running after the kids while Mrs. Rubio attends a meeting or a visits a site project.
As to who receives the foundation’s awards, only the Braman family decides who receives the awards.
In a recent Politico interview with the Rubios, they talked about the matter-
And now, she has no interest in being a fashion designer. In the past year, she has been working part-time outside the home, at the Braman Family Foundation — run by wealthy Miami businessman and philanthropist Norman Braman — helping it identify projects and organize its giving. She has also taken an interest in the issue of human trafficking and has pushed her husband to use his platform to address the issue — which he has done.-Politico
Mrs. Rubio has long been involved in her husband’s past campaigns and positions while she has raised the kids, done the everyday chores around the house, run errands, picked the kids up from school, and even walking the family pooch.
Most people may not be aware that it was Mrs. Rubio who played a pivotal role in influencing her husband to stay the senate race in 2009 when most were demanding that he not run against former Florida Governor Charlie Crist for the open U.S. Senate seat.
On another note, the Politico post also quoted Rubio as stating, “By the way, sorry for the patches (on the wall),” he offers. “They’re painting here.” C’mon Marco, pick up a brush and finish painting the wall. That wall has been like that for over 3 weeks! 😉
