Union City Mayor Brian Stack pens a letter to the editor on his statements surrounding Ecuador President Rafael Correa’s visit to the U.S. last month:
My decision to oppose President Correa’s visit is outlined by the following. Last week, my office was notified that President Rafael Correa would be visiting Union City High School to attend an arts and culture school on Friday, Sept. 23. As always, I was supportive of any organization wishing to utilize a public facility. However, many local organizations contacted my office to express their strong opposition to President Correa’s visit, as a result of his association with other heads of state whose ideologies promote violence and oppression.
