Wnuck Announces Congressional Campaign Kickoff with Seven Town Hall Meetings in 2009

Scottsdale, AZ—Today, Scottsdale businessman Eric Wnuck announced his candidacy
for Arizona’s 5th Congressional District with a series of seven town hall meetings across
the district. The meetings will be held between October 10th and December 12th and will
focus on topics ranging from health care to the economy.

Eric Wnuck wants to hear from the people: “Career politicians have long since stopped
serving our state and our district – and it is painfully clear they just don’t listen,” said
Wnuck. “Arizona voters don’t want more government takeovers, more government
taxes, or more laws that take away our rights”. Wnuck believes that holding town halls in
the district will allow the people to learn more about the issues and get answers to their

At the first Town Hall Meeting this Saturday, October 10th at Granite Reef Senior Center,
Wnuck has secured an impressive panel of four experts to discuss this timely issue.
Joining Wnuck will be Leonard Gilroy, Director of Government Reform at Reason
Foundation, a nonprofit think-tank advancing free minds and free markets; Dr. Jeffery
Singer, MD, treasurer for Arizonans for Health Care Freedom and member of the Board
of Directors of the Goldwater Institute for Public Policy Research; The Honorable Bev
Hermon, former Arizona legislator, advocate for children with special needs and

No controlled telephone town halls for Wnuck. He believes a face-to-face on important
issues is a necessity. “Nancy Pelosi and Harry Mitchell might think that it’s un-American
to speak out against the government takeover of health care, but I believe it is a necessary
part of our American principle to voice our opinions. I’m looking forward to these
events; Arizonans want results and I’m running because our career politicians have failed
us over and over and over again and this year voters will be handing them their pink


  1. When is Wnuck going to talk about foreclosures. He sure seems to have a lot of experience with them.

  2. These forums will be an excellent median for the average voters to educate themselves regarding the healthcare issue facing our country today. They have put together an all star panel in order to give educated opinions from many subject matter experts with regards to the topic. Should be a fun and informative event!

  3. I think it is great that we have a candidate that isn’t a professional politician, but rather a small businessman who understands the issues his constituents face.

  4. Oh, “his constituents” is a stretch. He’s lived in the district for “several years” and moved back to it in 2006? Now he wants to be my Congressman? That’s just asking way too much.

  5. Why is this mudslinging in public? Demos reading Sonoron Alliance now? Or is it our plan to eat our own again? Schweikert the profiteer owns how many peoples foreclosed homes? Ward fired how many people who then lost their homes? Shheeeeesh. Get along for once and talk more about “Dirty Harry” who does nothing while the recession rages!
