An out gay Latino Fort Worth native and Congressional candidate will be in Dallas tomorrow for a meet-and-greet.
Christian Cano is the Democratic nominee running against Rep. Robert Pittenger, a first term Republican in North Carolina.
In an announcement, the TCU alum said he felt compelled to run because he is tired of self-serving, ideological politicians.
“I have become fed up with politicians who are only interested in pushing through their own agendas, when they were elected to represent us–THE PEOPLE! I’m running for Congress to be able to speak for my neighbors in the 9th District,” he wrote on his campaign website.
He’s not only visiting the area because he’s a native Texan and has family here. He wants to promote better relations with North Carolina’s neighbors.
The full release is below:
Neighbor Christian Cano will be promoting the benefits of better relations and of more exporting with Texas and Mexico from our Congressional District 09.
Promoting and increasing exports with our #BuyNC09 campaign is vital for our region’s continued growth and our need to increase Good Paying Jobs in #NC09.
Neighbor Christian Cano will also be listening to how our Lone Star State has been able to deal with our current political cycle of immigration rhetoric.
Responsible Immigration long term policy is needed so that we can ensure security for our neighbors and so that we can move our efforts onto other vital issues like our declining infrastructure with I-77 and are aging bridges.
The event takes place from 5-7 p.m. tomorrow, Feb. 13 at Renfields Corner, 2603 Routh St. Ste. A. To RSVP or for more information contact Neighbors@CanoForCongress.com.
