Congressman Juan Ciscomani represents Arizona’s 6th Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives. But he represents much more than that- he represents the true American dream. And this will be his message when he delivers the GOP’s response in Spanish following President Biden’s State of the Union.
Rep. Ciscomani tweeted that he is “humbled and honored by the opportunity to deliver the Republican Address to the Nation in Spanish following the State of the Union. My message is simple: The American dream is worth fighting for. Mi mensaje es sencillo, el sueno americano merece ser defendido.”
I had the honor of meeting Rep. Ciscomani recently. I was immediately struck by his humbleness and intellect. He was gracious and kind as he emphasized the need for the GOP to promote positive messaging that highlights the true conservative values of our party. He said, “I’m a Republican, and I’m not angry!” Rep. Ciscomani well understands how hard Americans work and how valued our voices are.
Juan Ciscomani attended public schools in Tucson, Arizona. His official website states that he worked his way up through school with maintenance and service jobs until becoming the first in his family to graduate from college. He attended the University of Arizona and the Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce before joining Arizona Governor Doug Ducey’s administration as Senior Advisor and Vice-Chair of the Arizona-Mexico Commission. Mr. Cicscomani was elected to his first term in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2022.
He is a man of family values who quotes his father and shares stories about his mother. On the night I met him, he told of a conversation he had with his mom. He told of how his family came to America and on a green card. Now, he has a green lapel pin, a pin that sits squarely on his suit jacket signifying that he is an elected member of the 118th congress. He recalled how his dad drove a bus to earn support for his family and how he beams of pride at his son who became a United States Congressman.
Mr. Ciscomani lives in Tucson with his wife and six children. There is no doubt that pride will be felt by Mr. Ciscomani’s parents, wife, and children. But pride – and inspiration – will be felt by the American people as they watch Representative Ciscomani ascend the stairs to offer the Republican Address to the Nation in the beautiful Spanish language. Juan Ciscomani is keeping the American dream alive.
