Young Argentine Resident, Christian Ramirez, announces race for Wyandotte County Commission
(Kansas City, KS) - Lifelong resident and young political activist, Christian Ramirez, announces his candidacy to the 3rd District Commissioner position.
“Today, I announce my candidacy for the Wyandotte County Commission. This district has seen an abundant amount of economic development that it has desperately needed. Unfortunately, building and developing a sense of community has been put to the back burner to achieve these goals . . .
"The passion and activism of our community has been stamped out throughout the years. It is time we reignite the voices in our community and reclaim that passion and activism to create a community for everyone!”
For the last four years, Christian has been working for the Johnson County Parks & Recreation District in the Out-of-School-Time Programs. Within those fours years, he has worked from a Lead Teacher to an Assistant Site Administrator. As an Assistant Site Administrator, he has a large role in effectively planning a program that challenges students to learn the social-emotional skills they will need in the future. Christian is dedicated to ensuring every child has an opportunity to enjoy high quality after-school programming.
Christian became involved in all levels of politics at a young age. At just 24 years old, he was hired as the Volunteer Coordinator and Finance Assistant for the Brent Welder for Congress campaign. Within those roles, Christian learned how to effectively reach out to a constituency and efficiently raise the funds needed for a campaign. By working with the Field Director, he and Christian helped increase the voter turnout in Wyandotte County in the 2018 primary election. Christian has been involved in state and local politics as well. He currently serves as the Treasurer of the Wyandotte County Democratic Party and the Kansas Young Democrats. He was also chosen to serve as a Legislative Intern for State Senator Pat Pettey in the 2017 Legislative session.
Christian is running on the issues of transparency and communication, fiscal constraint and responsibility, and reduction in violence.
“I’m running because our county is in dire need of new a perspective. We need to exercise fiscal responsibility and constraint when it comes to our budget. Our budget is about to have $19.5 million budget deficit from 2020-2024. That is unacceptable! If elected, I will work with all the commissioners and county administration to find a sustainable solution to our budget problems.”
“Over the past few months, violence in our communities has risen. As a county and a community, we need to make it a priority to reduce the rate of violence throughout our communities. I want to work with all stakeholders to find solutions that will keep our community safe and reduce violence.. One killing is already enough! So please join me in creating this movement and bringing a new perspective to our county government!”
