Douglas’ Mayor Robert Uribe has accepted an invitation from President Donald Trump to attend a reception at the White House in honor of National African American History Month. The event will take place Friday, Feb. 21. Mayor Uribe will also be meeting with administration officials to discuss the new commercial port of entry project that is being planned by the General Services Administration, awaiting inclusion into the Administration’s budget and/or dedicated congressional funding. “I am humbled to be honored with an invitation to attend the celebration of part of our society’s history” Mayor Uribe said. “But I am most eager to discuss the funding of our commercial port of entry and to seek a firm commitment from the Administration for inclusion in their budget.” Before returning to Douglas, Mayor Uribe will be meeting with U.S. Senators Martha McSally and Kyrsten Sinema, along with congressional staff and a stop at our congresswoman’s office to personally focus on our needs for the Port of Entry to be funded in the next round of appropriations.
