It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to your enemies, but a great deal more to stand up to your friends.

BOS: Stop Rezoning San Tan Valley

Wednesday, June 7th, was a very busy morning. Not only was an infamous utility company owner being arraigned in federal court, but the Pinal County Board of Supervisors was also meeting and some items on that agenda were troubling to say the least. As I could only be in one place at a time, I sent the following letter to the Board of Supervisors to be read into the record. Unfortunately, while the letter was mentioned that it had been received, the letter was not read at the meeting. As a result, I am posting the letter here for anyone who may be interested in reading what it said.

Banner & J-Curve Annexation Public Hearing

San Tan Valley Is More Than Just Homes

Before 2009, no one had ever heard about San Tan Valley. Why? It didn't exist. The area that became known as San Tan Valley on June 23, 2009, had previously been called almost anything else. Some called it Queen Creek (which it was never a part of, causing its own list of problems), some referred to the area as the name of the housing subdivision they lived in such as Johnson Ranch, San Tan Heights or Pecan Creek. Others called it Pinal County while others simply called it "land way out there".

Tonight is a Special Night

Tonight is a special night for my family ... it's the first night of Hanukkah and while the holiday may not have all the fanfare of Christmas, it is still a very special time in our household. A time when family is the true focus.

Dodie Londen Class of 2016 Graduation Speech

What a journey the last 10 months have been for me. After a rigorous application process last year, I was honored to have been selected as one of eight Republican women across the state of Arizona to participate in the Dodie Londen Excellence in Public Service Series. A truly life changing experience. While in Washington DC, our executive director Kim Owens explained that we needed to select a representative among us to give the speech at graduation. I was stunned to have even heard my name as a nominee. So honored and humbled to have been selected. Below you will find the speech that I gave, as well as a very bumpy recording of the speech.
