(January 9, 2012) – My family has deep roots in farming and dairy in Arizona. Growing up I have always been told that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. We teach our kids that it’s best to stick it out and that part of life’s challenges is to push through adversity. By changing your environment, it doesn’t always mean your troubles suddenly disappear. In fact, they usually follow.
Paul Gosar is currently my Congressman and I have campaigned for him. My family even planned a May fundraiser earlier this year at our home in Show Low. Gosar and his staff never communicated with me until the last moment and suddenly canceled the event after months of planning. I knew then that Paul Gosar had staff problems, since they did not plan and failed to communicate. I also knew that Paul Gosar’s support was weak, since most people showed little interest in supporting him, mainly since he was the only Arizona republican to vote to increase the debt ceiling.
Paul Gosar should heed the ole saying, the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. Being unorganized, failing to communicate and running at the first sign of a fight are organizational and character flaws. These problems just don’t go away by moving from the eastern to the western portions of Arizona.

I was at Paul’s speech in Flagstaff on Friday night and witnessed him skirting every tough question he was asked. I am not impressed by this Congressmen who seems to have allowed the trappings of Washington and his constituents to influence his decision making. He was asked twice about switching districts and each time he went off on a tangent that wasn’t about switching. He never replied directly nor answered the questions presented to him about switching districts. At one point he expressed his “disappointment” with the City of Flagstaff and his disappointment in the turn out to his Town Hall Meeting. Well Dr. Gosar….I am extremely disappointed with you and the fact that you are operating where the money is, not concerned with saving the environment and you appear to be only attracted to what is good for the corporations that want to destroy our country and our land. Good riddance from CD-1.
