Alfredo Ortiz, JCN President and CEO, released the following statement:
“All of us at JCN congratulate Maximo on his fantastic speech. We are thrilled that a JCN member was able to address a national audience about the dangers of socialism and the benefits of capitalism. That is JCN’s theme: ‘Socialism takes, Capitalism creates.’ And Maximo is an excellent messenger, having experienced the disaster of socialism in his native Cuba and the unrivaled opportunities of capitalism in his adopted home of America. The stakes in this election couldn’t be higher. The Democrats, led by Joe Biden and AOC, are advancing a socialist economic agenda that would cripple freedom and send our economy into depression. President Trump, on the other hand, wants to empower the private sector, led by our small business community. That was the reason he delivered the best economy in history, prior to the pandemic.”
JCN taped a video of Mr. Alvarez telling his life story, how he built his business, the challenges of government regulation, and the proper role of government. To watch the video, click here.
