RNHA Leaders Express Support for RNHA IL; 3 of 4 National RNHA Regions support RNHA IL
Posted June 19, 2011 by Rafael Rivadeneira

To the Chair of the RNHA:

We the undersigned are writing to express our support for the Illinois chapter of the Republican National Hispanic Assembly. Having read the decision to dismiss the appeal of the RNHA IL state convention, and the endorsement of the Chairmanship of Rafael Rivadeneira, we believe that the decision to decertify the Illinois RNHA will not be in the best interest of our organization as we move forward into 2012.

We must not provide our political opponents, or those in the mainstream liberal media, material to use against the RNHA or the Republican Party in an attempt to unduly influence the Hispanic community and the electorate at large. Now is the time to come together with nothing but open hearts and a firm commitment for the task that lies before us, replacing President Obama and winning elections in 2012. For the good of our organization, for the good of the Republican Party, and for the mission we have next year, let us not be divided, but move forward – together.
