Christine Jones Statement on CD-5 Debate

Christine Jones for Congress

(Gilbert, AZ) – Tonight, conservative business leader Christine Jones participated in a live televised debate sponsored by Phoenix PBS affiliate, KAET TV-8. Following the debate, Jones released the following statement:

“This was an important debate for citizens of the district to see because it showed a clear contrast between a proven conservative business leader and individuals who have spent their careers working in politics. Citizens should be fully informed about all the candidates when they vote in this Primary Election and I believe my qualifications, credentials and values will best serve the citizens of CD-5.”

Jones added, “On behalf of the campaign, I would like to thank Ted Simon and the team of Horizon for hosting this essential debate. I also want to thank Representative Justin Olson and Supervisor Don Stapley for taking the time to attend and engage in a healthy and informative discussion on issues important to Congressional District Five.”

    I watched the debate and noticed , like on Channel 12’ss Sunday Square Off, the other guy running Biggs did not show up. I guess he’s afraid to show up. Olson slammed Jones for not living in the District and thus can not even vote for herself. Her response was that her husband had been in the service and they military families move around. But she has said he has been working at a school in Chandler Chandler for 10 years. Reapportionment last happened a couple of years ago so they could have moved since then. Yes, I know it is not a requirement to live in the District but it sure shows a level of commitment to the voters being served. And her response on immigration, a part of it, was, “Maybe”.

    Stapley: I am not sure why he doesn’t say I served as County Supervisor and balanced a budget which Congress can;t do, did not raise property taxes, supported law enforcement, and that I know about and have worked on issues that impact voters lives on a daily basis. This will help me represent you the best.

    Olson: I still am unclear o f what he had done or will do. While he said the next President will pick the next Supreme Court judge, the US House does not vote on that. I wish he could have picked one thib that he would like to do.

    At least the three of them showed up. I guess Biggs figures they will divide up the vote in a 4 person field and he will slide in.
