Lee Ballenger has recently returned from a fact-finding trip to Guatemala as a delegate of the Guatemalan Human Rights Commission. The delegation met with leading economists, church leaders, deportees from the U.S. and human rights activists. The focus of the group was to research the effects of the Central America Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) on the economy of Guatemala and on its citizens. Findings were presented to the U.S. Embassy in Guatemala with interesting results. Mr. Ballenger ran for Congress SC district #3 as a Democratic candidate against incumbent Gresham Barrett in 2006.
