AZ Congressman Matt Salmon I wanted to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

As 2015 comes to a close, I wanted to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

Each year at this time I reflect on the many things I am thankful for in my life. One of those is your friendship. I truly could not do this job without your tremendous support.

As you celebrate the holiday season, please remember those in uniform serving our nation overseas who are unable to spend the holidays with their families and loved ones.

I pray that 2016 will be a blessed year for you and your family, and for our great nation.

Nancy and I wish you the most joyful, peaceful holiday season, and we look forward to seeing you in the new year.

God bless,

Matt Salmon signature

Merry Christmas and Happy and Healthy New Year

AZ-Judge Gerlach dismisses lawsuit against Former Maricopa County Republican Chair A. J. La Faro

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Douglas Gerlach has issued a Final Judgment dismissing a civil lawsuit filed by Benjamin Marin and Citizens for a Better Arizona against A. J. La Faro, Immediate Past Chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Committee.

Judge Gerlach indicated in his ruling that "No purpose is to be served by prolonging this litigation and submitting the case to a jury".  Judge Gerlach said "La Faro is granted summary judgment in his favor against plaintiff Benjamin Marin. The claims asserted by Marin against La Faro are dismissed".  Judge Gerlach went on to say "La Faro is granted summary judgment in his favor and against plaintiff Citizens for a Better Arizona.  Nothing submitted in opposition to La Faro's motion represented an attempt on Citizen's behalf to avoid summary judgment.  The claims asserted by Citizens for a Better Arizona against La Faro are dismissed".

When notified of the Court's decision, La Faro said "I'm glad to hear that justice has prevailed and this frivolous lawsuit that had no basis or merit has been dismissed".  La Faro was overheard saying "I am very fortunate having Dennis Wilenchik and his fantastic legal team representing me.  Wilenchik & Bartness are recognized leaders in Arizona civil litigation and now I know why".

Holiday Greetings from AZ Congressman Trent Franks

Trent Franks for Congress

Since the first Thanksgiving established by President Washington, Americans have always used this time of year to pause with family and friends, even in the midst of disappointment, trials and challenges, and give thanks for the many blessings that we have – for that is what truly defines us as a nation and who we are as a people. 
Pausing and reflecting on my time since first running for and now serving in Congress, I am thankful for the many people that I have met and am now blessed to call friend.
As 2015 comes to a close and as we continue to celebrate the holiday season, may we remind ourselves how truly blessed we are to live in America, where religious freedom is constitutionally guaranteed. 
We celebrate safely in the land of the free and are endlessly grateful for all the brave sacrifices of our honorable servicemen and women whom protect and safeguard our fundamental freedoms.
The holiday season, a time full of miracles, calls to mind our miracle as a nation.  Founding Father Daniel Webster articulated the American story ever so eloquently when he said, “Hold on, my friends, to the Constitution and the Republic for which it stands.  Miracles do not cluster and what has happened in 6000 years, may not happen again...”
As we come together for the Holiday Season – Hanukkah, Christmas and the New Year - may it be a warm celebration, as the holiday lights shine bright and serve as a beacon of freedom and a source of good to the entire world.  

It is my hope and prayer that you have much to be thankful for as we prepare to welcome a New Year.  Josie, the kids and I wish you the very best and hope you have a wonderful time celebrating the holidays.

With gratitude and thankfulness,
Trent Franks
