Dr. Hiral Tiperneni, Brianna Westbrook, Bob Musselwhite, and Bob Olsen are running for House in CD8. Now, due to Trent Frank’s resignation, Hiral, Brianna, and Bob Olsen will be running in a Special Election to fill this seat until the election scheduled in November. There will be a Primary on 2/24/18 and General Election on 4/24/18. Come hear what each candidate plans to accomplish as a member of the House, what experiences qualify each candidate for this job, and what we can do to help these candidates.
Dr. Hiral Tipirneni has dedicated her life to serving her community, solving problems, and improving lives. Hiral is running for Congress to take on Washington insiders and use her problem-solving, team-oriented approach to work with Republicans and Democrats alike to get the results we need. (See www.hiralforcongress.com)
Brianna Westbrook seeks to represent Arizona’s 8th congressional district because of what she can give to this country, not what she can take. Brianna will work to strengthen America’s infrastructure by supporting provision of universal health care and a quality education for all. (See www.westbrook2018.com)
Bob Musselwhite has solved problems over a 24 year career in local government management in three states including as a member of the Litchfield Park City Council and has taught history for 12 years in Arizona's public schools. He intends to guard and expand the middle class as our representative in Washington. (See www.bobmusselwhiteforcongress.com)
Bob Olsen has spent his entire adult life serving the public in the military, as a firefighter, and in law enforcement. He looks forward to serving Arizona as US Representative for Congressional District 8, and welcomes the challenge of working across the aisle to reach outcomes that help Arizona and our nation.(See www.bobolsen2018.com)
Each candidate’s website (listed above) gives important information you may wish to read before you hear our speakers.
On February 28th, the Democratic candidates for the US Senate are invited to speak. We have several who are seeking the position held by Jeff Flake; they are Deedra Abboud, Christopher Russell, Richard Sherzan and Kyrsten Sinema.
Deedra Abboud is a Phoenix-based attorney and founder of the leadership consulting firm, the Global Institute of Solution Oriented Leadership. After 9/11, she launched and served as director of the Arizona chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-AZ) from 2001 to 2005. Deedra graduated from Summit Law School in 2012 and practiced immigration and estate planning law for nearly five years before returning to community advocacy work during the 2016 election. http://deedra2018.com
Christopher Russellis an Army veteran, a husband, a father and a small town lawyer. His job has shown him how insurance companies and other large corporations have rigged the law in favor of themselves over ordinary citizens. The foundation of his practice is helping people fight battles they can’t fight themselves. As a rural Arizonan, he understands the diverse character of Arizona lands beyond Maricopa County. www.ChrisRussellForSenate.com
Richard Sherzan was born in Mobile, Alabama and was a teacher and housing mediator. A Democrat, he served in the Iowa House of Representatives from 1979 to 1981. He moved to Arizona and ran against McCain in 2015 but later withdrew from that race. He believes to win elections, the Democratic Party must offer the individual voter an election-year Democratic Party that correctly reflects the Party’s true principles and values—the enhancement of the freedom, dignity, security, and happiness of the individual.

Kyrsten Sinema knows what it means to struggle just to meet the most basic needs. For three years, her family lived in an old gas station with no electricity or running water. Sinema became a social worker helping families to cope and grow. She is still committed to helping people succeed. She was elected to the Arizona House and Senate. In 2011, the Arizona Republic said she had “remarkable” ability to “partner with Republicans in both the House and Senate” to pass legislation while remaining a “defender of key Democratic priorities.” As a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, she has served the people of Arizona conscientiously since January 2013. http://kyrstensinema.com (Sinema’s participation at the meeting is dependent on the schedule of the US House of Representatives.)
