As the impeachment trial for President Donald Trump continues in the United States Senate on Friday, the President will be meeting two miles away in the White House with mayors from across the country, including Loganville Mayor Rey Martinez.

“I have been invited and accepted an invitation from the White House on a discussion on  Transforming America’s Communities. I’m honored and humbled to be one of several mayors in the U.S. to be invited to the White House to have a dialogue about our local community,” Martinez said. “I will be showcasing Loganville and Walton/Gwinnett County in our discussion. I’m also grateful with all that’s happening in Washington this week that our President is taking time to meet the U.S. Mayors.

This is not the first time Martinez has been invited to the White House. In fact, it will be his fourth visit, the mayor says.

“Two representing mayors speaking about Infrastructure and transforming communities and two representing Hispanics during Hispanic Heritage Month,” Martinez said. He shared the agenda for the meeting which will take place between 2 – 4:30 p.m. Speakers include Larry Kudlow, assistant to the President and director of the National Economic Council, Scott  Turner, White House Revitalization and Opportunity Council, Kellyanne Conway, assistant to the President and Senior Council, Secretary Ben Carson, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and many more, as well as the President himself.

Martinez was involved in the Trump Presidential Campaign in 2016 and will be so again this year as a state honorary chair for Trump’s relection campaign in Georgia.
