Lawrenceville, GA. June 27, 2022 – Republican National Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel will officially open the Gwinnett County Hispanic Center at 1300 Peachtree Industrial Blvd, Unit 2203, Suwanee, GA on Wednesday, June 29, 2022. The doors open at 3:30 pm with the program starting at 4:00 pm.
The opening of the center is part of the Republican National Committee’s multi-million-dollar effort to engage with Hispanic voters across the United States.
Ronna McDaniel was appointed as the Republican National Committee Chairwoman in 2017, having previously served as the Michigan Republican Party Chairwoman from 2015-2017. Her presence in Suwanee for this historic event signals the importance the Republican Party places on engaging the Hispanic community and expanding the political gains the party has already seen in this too often overlooked demographic.
“Why is this so important? Because the Democrat party has taken the votes of this people and this community for granted for far too long,” said McDaniel at the opening of the Hispanic center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, as reported by CBS 58 News. “As a party, we have to show up in communities that have been habitually democrat and talk about the values that we share in common.”
McDaniel will be joined by Georgia Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner, John F. King. King is a Hispanic American and a Major General in the U.S. Army National Guard, who received his master’s degree from the United States Army War College. As Insurance Commissioner, he is the first Hispanic statewide official in Georgia’s history.
About the event, Rey Martinez, Gwinnett’s first Hispanic mayor who served in Loganville, said, “As a Hispanic leader and candidate for State House, I’m excited about the National Republican Party investing funds, personnel, and resources in Georgia to Get Out The Vote in the Hispanic Community. Latinos make up nearly 10% of the State population and 4% of voters. It’s very important to get the conservative message to the Hispanic community.”
Gwinnett GOP Chairman, Sammy Baker echoes Rey Martinez’s sentiments when he states, “Gwinnett is one of the most diverse counties in the country. We are proud the center is opening in Suwanee. We have a huge Hispanic population with the distinct opportunity of showing how similar Republican ideals are to the Hispanic community’s family first, faith, and freedom beliefs. As with Republicans, Hispanics want opportunities to grow small businesses and they expect a great educational system for their children.”
