FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AURORA, IL (May 10, 2023)–A business leader and pastor from Texas running for president of the United States visited Bureau Gravity in Aurora to film a series of television commercials airing in Iowa and host a town hall with dozens of religious and political leaders, business executives and supporters asking tough questions about issues facing America today.
Since Ryan Binkley launched his campaign for the Republican party nomination for U.S. president in Dallas, Politico named him in a list of presidential candidates including Donald Trump, former Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson and tech tycoon Vivek Ramaswamy.
Binkley is focusing his campaign on unifying Americans around our common goal to care for each other and those who are hurting. “Our political system is broken. Everyone is divided,” Binkley said, adding that the crisis is “costing lives and hurting our country.”
A father of five children, husband, and owner of a successful mergers and acquisitions firm, Binkley said he plans to balance the budget and lower healthcare costs. Among his proposals is a plan to encourage price visibility and create more competition by allowing insurance companies to do business across state lines.
The founder of Create Church in Dallas, Binkley said he plans to address America’s education and poverty crisis by starting a volunteer tutoring program called S.A.V.E. (Serving and Volunteering in Education).
“If you want to change the world, let’s change the life of a child. What if we did this? What if we set up like a Peace Corps? How many of you guys remember Peace Corps from the 60s or 70s? What if we set up an urban Peace Corps, and we had college students from all over the United States volunteering to serve five hours a week in the classroom for a first grader, third grader, fifth grader and get their reading levels up where it should be. In urban America today, about 12% of minorities in urban America are at the eighth grade reading levels where they are supposed to be,” Binkley told the crowd gathered in Aurora Wednesday night.
