McCormick Adds Black and Hispanic Voices for Rich to American Dream Coalition

SUWANEE, GA – Rich McCormick for Congress has further expanded its American Dream Coalition with the addition of Black and Hispanic Voices for Rich. The coalition co-chaired by Loganville Mayor Rey Martinez, Gwinnett County’s first Hispanic mayor and Lisa Babbage, former candidate for Republican nomination in the Seventh District.

“Dr. McCormick is a testament to the American Dream. As the son of a single mother, he worked in the fields with immigrants and served his country in the military for 20 years before attending medical school. He knows the struggle that many Hispanics experience and is committed to helping our community achieve their share of the American Dream,” said Martinez.

“Dr. McCormick understands that racism is not a political problem, it is a people problem. History has proven that trying to solve racism in America with politics only polarizes the issue,” said Babbage. “I am supporting Dr. McCormick because he has demonstrated a commitment to bringing people together, across racial lines, to finding meaningful solutions to difficult issues.”

“In my experience, the best leaders speak least and listen the most,” said Dr. McCormick. “There is no question we need more listeners in Congress, and I believe that many of our racial issues can be solved through dialogue. Listening and understanding the experiences of our fellow citizens coupled with empathy and compassion can be as effective as any piece of legislation.”
