Jennifer Wright for Phoenix Mayor
In another of her “pull no punches” reports, Linda Bentley of the Sonoran News gives in-depth coverage of the Phoenix mayor’s race. Bentley’s conclusion after interviewing candidate Jennifer Wright is “she is probably the only fiscal conservative in a crowded race of seven candidates, which also includes union members.”
Wright has generated a groundswell of conservative support and is backed by 26 Tea Party organizations throughout Arizona. Not bad for a first-time candidate with credentials to spare. A lawyer, with a degree in economics, Jennifer Wright is a fresh face with fresh ideas in a sea of retread council members, aligned union supporters and career lobbyist/RINO Wes Gullett who is trying to pass himself off as an “outsider.” Bentley exposes the duplicity of Peggy Neely and gives the lowdown on Sal DiCiccio — a council rarity in that he has not set his sights on the mayor’s office — yet.
