On Tuesday, the Gila Bend Town Council proclaimed July American Pride Month. Mayor Chris Riggs read the proclamation into the official record.
“I believe July is the best month for all of us to take pride in our great country,” Riggs told the ADI. “American exceptionalism has seen one of the greatest documents ever written our Constitution, it has seen advances in technology such as the airplane and securing the world for freedom against tyranny such as World War II. We as a united people can take great pride in the accomplishments of our great nation.”
Mayor Riggs and his fellow Council members hope other cities and towns will consider following their lead and declare pride in the U.S.A.
