As elections loom on the horizon, I would like to say how much Wendy Rogers has been a model candidate to me personally.

I met Wendy over a year ago when she came knocking on my door in Tonto Basin. I'd never had any other candidate show such personal care nor take the time to actually meet the constituents in person.

She took our picture so she could remember us and I thought that was going to be all the contact I had with her. Imagine my surprise when she would text to ask how I was doing. During the evacuations for the Bush Fire in June, she even called me to see how our family was doing and if we had a place to stay. She offered her own house if we didn't have any place to go. That impressed me!

Since I've gotten to know Wendy a bit this past year, I've witnessed someone who gives 100% of herself and is deeply concerned about our country. She doesn't complain about it like so many of us. She's doing something about it by running for Arizona senator. I can't recommend anyone as highly for this job as Wendy Rogers. Thanks, Wendy, for caring about those whom you will represent. You've made an impression already!

Wendy Rogers is a life member of the Oath Keepers. "The Oath Keepers, which claims tens of thousands of present and former law enforcement officials and military veterans as members, is one of the largest radical antigovernment groups in the U.S. today. While it claims only to be defending the Constitution, the entire organization is based on a set of baseless conspiracy theories about the federal government working to destroy the liberties of Americans." - Southern Poverty Law Center

NOT someone I'd like to see in our government!

Wendy Rodgers is not my idea of a model candidate, besides the fact that she came up her carpet bagging from Tempe, she runs very negative and un founded attack ads. Spreading fear and division, no wonder she is Pro-Trump.

The latest ad to hit my phone was that Felicia French and Major Coral Evans would defund police. I complete lie as no candidate in the Democratic party has made any such statement.

On the other hand, my being over 65, she has made statements that Social Securit is unconstitutional and she would dismantle it. Now that scares me!

Tempe Wendy needs to get a hobby that doesn't involve accepting $$$ from the clean elections fund and clogging up my mailbox with her crazy rants. Vote for reason and integrity this year: Go Felicia!!


Wendy Rogers is one of those candidates who will say anything to get elected. I've had enough of that. We need responsible truthful people in office from top to bottom. Calling Felicia French a "Manchurian Candidate" is way over the top and reminds me how it's possible to say anything awful thing with no facts or supporting information. What in the world did she mean by that? She also accused Felicia French of being an Antifa supporter and said she would defund the police. Without evidence or truth, Wendy Rogers will say anything. We don't need more lies or a politician who degrades others. Let's put dignity back into politics. A vote for Felicia French who has conducted herself with grace says it all.


In the late 1700's, what is now the USA was under the cloak of the British government. Wendy Roger's policies would appear to be completely in line with the British rule. Her policies are what we fought a Revolutionary war to escape. Her polices are what we fought a civil war to get rid of.

We the People, not of the Rich, by the Rich, for the Rich.

Felicia French is the People's choice!
