(Cleveland) Kentucky State Senator Ralph Alvarado (R, Winchester) has been asked to speak in prime time at the Republican National Convention on Wednesday night, July 20. Senator Alvarado is scheduled to speak around 9pm.
“It is an honor to be asked to speak at the convention and to represent Kentucky on the national stage,” Alvarado said. “I strongly believe that the Republican Party is the party of opportunity for voters of all backgrounds, especially Hispanics. I plan to talk about my story as a public servant striving to make my state and nation a land of opportunity for anyone willing to work hard and persevere.”
Ralph Alvarado has been a doctor in Winchester since 1998. Alvarado received his Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Medicine from Loma Linda University. He completed his Residency in Internal Medicine/Pediatrics at the University of Kentucky. Alvarado is a member of the American College of Physicians, American Medical Association and Clark County Medical Society, and a member of the Kentucky Medical Association.
Ralph and his wife Dawn have been married for 22 years, and have two children, Nathan (18) and Sarina (16). The Alvarado Family attends Grace Baptist Church in Winchester.
“My background in medicine and small business ownership has taught me what government can do to help, and more often hurt, people who are trying to create jobs and provide medical services in our country. I am strongly committed to policies that protect the doctor-patient relationship, and ensure better health outcomes for everyone,” Alvarado said.
Alvarado was elected in 2014, becoming the first Hispanic elected to state office in Kentucky. He is Vice-Chairman of the Health and Welfare Committee in Kentucky’s state Senate, and has been a strong advocate for conservative policies on tort and education reform.
