To follow-up on last week’s post “Wherefore art thou, Ricky Gill?” that discussed Republican candidate (for California’s 9th Congressional District) Ricky Gill’s apparent reluctance to publicly acknowledge his religious background, we now learn that Gill will be speaking at the Republican National Convention later this week:
“It will be an honor to speak on behalf of our Valley and Delta communities on a national stage,” Gill said. “While we face some of the greatest challenges, our communities are among the most underrepresented in America. My remarks at the Convention will focus not only on giving our communities a voice, but also on ensuring the survival of our American Dream for this generation and those to come.”
“I hope this opportunity will prompt Washington to take note not just of our communities’ current struggles, but also of their enduring potential,” Gill added.
It will be interesting to see which “underrepresented” communities Gill will speak about at the Convention.
