I have worked closely with Terry and Rene on various city issues over the years and have full faith and confidence in their ability to lead Chandler forward. These individuals are ready to serve our community in a meaningful way. They are people of integrity and character and, therefore, have my unequivocal support.

“If you think Obama is weak on Syria and Russia, just remember Assad and Putin were the ones who came a knockin’. Obama has a poker face that would make McCain throw his phone away.”
