Gregg Ramos hosts David Briley mayoral campaign fundraiser January 17

Briley speaks Spanish, has experience in Latin America

Gregg Ramos will host a fundraiser for mayoral candidate David Briley at Ramos' home this Wednesday evening, January 17, starting at 5:30 p.m. The address is 9454 Chaucer’s Court, Brentwood, Tennessee. Call 370-8526 for more information.

Briley's campaign web site describes his experience in Central and South America:

"After graduating from college, I traveled to Latin America to volunteer as a teacher in impoverished areas of Ecuador and Peru. In that time, I worked on becoming fluent in Spanish and on understanding the complex cultural and economic relations between our societies." There is also a picture on the site of Briley during his time in Ecuador.

Briley is the grandson of Metro Nashville's first mayor Beverly Briley and is currently a councilman-at-large. Ramos is an attorney and a former president of the Nashville Bar Association.

Ramos is not the only politically active Hispanic leader hosting a fundraiser for a mayoral candidate. Businessman Salvador Guzman has announced that he plans to hold a mayoral campaign fundraiser for Howard Genry (campaign web site here). The original date for that fundraiser was postponed, and no new date has been set. Gentry is currently Vice Mayor.
