As Stories Continue To Surface nationwide regarding the harassing/threatening phone calls, e-mails and letter that the Electoral College voters are receiving, Carol Joyce, one of the Arizona electors reports: “Friday, I received 28 letters from around the country in my  home delivery mail box.  Saturday 31 letters, today not to bad only 17, I am not opening any of them up…just rubber banded them and will take them to state GOP HQ .  You never know what could be inside of them with some of these bad characters out there….Today, as of 5:45 pm and since 5:22 am this morning, I have received of 3,302 emails!  On Monday - 2,719, Sunday - 2,247, last Saturday - 3,711,  It’s very time consuming because, it’s not easy to delete when they are mixed in with my regular email! Oh well, in time this shall pass!   It’s worth the grief because we now have the White House back with a President and VP who will make some good things happen for our Country!”

Congressman Paul Gosar: Coming from a family with 10 kids of mixed political views, I understand that we may disagree from time to time—we may even strongly disagree—but that’s what’s great about this country: even with our differences we can agree that we live in a great nation with much to be thankful for. This week, I hope we all take a moment to put our differences aside and remember those heroes who serve our communities at home and abroad. Give thanks to those who fought to protect us, those who never returned and the families who have an empty seat at their table this Thanksgiving. Above all else, we should all remember that God has blessed our nation as the land of liberty and prosperity. Never forget how precious the gift of freedom is and the sacrifices made to ensure America always remains the land of the free and the home of the brave. So from my family to yours... I hope you have a safe and happy Thanksgiving with family and friends.

Congressman Paul Gosar: Forget "Black Friday"... I'm supporting Small Business Saturday! As a small business owner for over 25 years, I know that entrepreneurs are the key to restoring American prosperity and boosting our economy. American entrepreneurs have boldly navigated extraordinarily difficult times pursuing not only their own dreams but also serving as the economic engine that continues to power our country. By empowering small business and reducing regulatory hurdles that are shackling growth, we can once again unleash the promise of the American dream and usher in a new era of economic prosperity. So forget the shopping malls today and support your local small businesses!

Sal DiCiccio - Phoenix Councilman, District 6: This holiday season my thoughts and prayers are with those who do not get to spend Thanksgiving with their families because they are out serving our country and our communities. These individuals make the ultimate sacrifice during times like this so that we can spend our holidays safe with our loved ones. So I would like to say a special thank you to our service members, firefighters and police officers this week. In this particularly hostile climate, you leave your families to protect ours and you are appreciated. I would also like to say an extra special thank you to their families, who forego seeing them on these occasions so that they may continue their service. This Thanksgiving I am most thankful for these families, for their sacrifices and contributions towards making America the greatest country to live in. My best to you and your family,
