STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – At the invitation of Arizona Speaker of the House J.D. Mesnard and Representative Anthony Rivero, Phoenix welcomed last week the visit of the Honorable Juan Carlos Romero Hicks, Mexican Federal Senator of the State of Guanajuato.
Senator Romero Hicks, a member of the National Action Party and former Governor of Guanajuato, visited the Arizona House of Representatives during a joint session of both chambers to deliver a message of unity and good will. The Senator spoke about the current state of Mexico-U.S. relations and the desire of the Mexican people to continue the good relationship between Mexico and the U.S.
During his address to the Legislature, Senator Romero Hicks spoke about the mutual problems Mexico and the United States are currently facing and the benefits for our countries of working together towards the achievement of common goals. He expressed the need to stop blaming each other for our problems. "Let's try to solve our problems together," he said. "If we are going to be neighbors forever, why not build together a great North American community."
Arizona State Senator Catherine Miranda, LD27, had the opportunity to talk with Senator Romero Hicks, as well as with his political advisor, Juan Hernandez. She said she is looking forward to working with our two countries to maintain the good relationship between Mexico and Arizona, in view of the existing political climate around our nation. She also expressed her willingness to continue working for a shared prosperity.
Senator Miranda commended Speaker Mesnard and Representative Rivero for the opportunity to hear Senator Romero Hicks, whose message was very well received by legislators.
