Highland City Councilman and retired city manager Sam Racadio on:
“What makes America Great?”
As a world traveler, Racadio has observed that no other country is quite like the United States of America.
As a Peace Corps volunteer and as a city official who has visited with city managers and other city officials in many nations, Racadio marveled at America’s uniqueness.
While studying at the University of Redlands, Sam became interested in international affairs. He was given an opportunity to work in the US Foreign Service, where he observed that even nations like Great Britain and Australia don’t have the key ingredient we are blessed with.
We enjoyed hearing Sam’s insights on what makes America Great.
