After all, there have not been many candidates in our lifetime who we would label as “good” politicians. So we started thinking about the qualities an ideal politician would possess in order for us to actually endorse them. NRI 2nd generation have unique qualities. We gather information through interview and research, we observed about Ricky Gill:·

  • He is 24 years old young politician but you would never think he’s 24….looks much older.
  • Ricky Gill is a lifelong learner” with many different interests from public education to farming to immigration and health care.
  • He always had a high regard for his native community and NRI community
  • He said, “Congress and the federal government can help ensure that investment in agriculture increases and that our agriculture products find markets overseas.”·

Ricky Gill’s Goals:

  • There isn’t a single legislator at the state or federal level who actually resides in San Joaquin County· Creating more jobs for the 11th District area, bringing down the cost of health care and making structural changes to Congress — such as advocating for a presidential line-item veto and a single subject rule for legislation — and defending and reforming public education.
  • The state government has rules in place to sort of stay on point that the federal government doesn’t have. You should not have one mammoth piece of legislation that touches on 10 different subjects.
  • He has always been interested in public education. The public education is the single best investment we can make to ensure that America remains a competitive force in the global economy. The parents must have an important role to play in education reform and deserve a choice in the schools their children attend.
