Candidates for the 31st Congressional District and the 23rd state Senate District will address the Redlands Republican Women, Federated, in a free Zoom meeting from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 18.
The featured speakers will be Agnes Gibboney, who is challenging U.S. Rep. Pete Aguilar in the 31st Congressional District, and Rosilicie Ochoa Bogh, who is running against Democrat Abigail Rosales-Medina to fill the California 23rd State Senate District being vacated by Sen. Mike Morrell, who will be termed out at the end of the year.
Gibboney is an immigrant from Hungary who was raised in Brazil before immigrating to the United States. A previously deported illegal man murdered her son, Ronald da Silva. In November 2019, the man who killed her son was released from prison, and she fought to have him deported. He was released and immediately deported.
