(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.”
