Outstanding Hispanic Republican Leader: Ralph Alvarado
The Hispanic Communications Department at the RNC recently reached out to outstanding Hispanic leaders and asked them what being a Republican means to them.
Below are the answers for Ralph Alvarado, a State Senator from Kentucky.
1. What are the 3 most important values that identify you with the Republican Party?
- Protection of individual freedoms/rights
- Peace through military strength
- Limited government
2. How does your heritage influence your political perspective?
Most Hispanics and their relatives have witnessed the effects of corrupt and self-serving governments. America's government enforces the check and balance that so many other countries don't have and provides a level playing field for all its citizens.
3. Would you advise Hispanics to become more knowledgeable about the political process and why?
Hispanics need to know what they believe and why they believe it. All too often, we rely on a biased media to guide us in a world of identity politics. I feel every Latino/Hispanic should research every political party's platform and see which one most closely aligns with their overall belief structure.
4. Describe Hispanics in one word.
We Hispanics are Resilient.
