“I feel honored having these Latino community leaders here with me today to show their support to my campaign and to my vision for a better Arizona,” said Congresswoman Kirkpatrick. “I know that if we work together, more and bigger things will get done.”

“The Latino vote is very powerful and now more than ever we are paying attention to the leaders that seek to represent our best interest.  Unfortunately, our current Senator has not keep up with any made commitments with in the past years,” said Carlos Velasco of Velasco Consulting and one the hosts of the event. “We need someone in Washington to fight for the best interest of our families, to be our voice, and to do as promised. However, this change can only happen if we go out and cast our votes, I challenge our Latino community to get out and vote – so we may be able to see some meaningful changes for our communities,” concluded Velasco.
