My family has deep roots in farming and dairy in Arizona. Growing up I have always been told that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. We teach our kids that it’s best to stick it out and that part of life’s challenges is to push through adversity. By changing your environment, it doesn’t always mean your troubles suddenly disappear. In fact, they usually follow.
Paul Gosar is currently my congressman and I have campaigned for him. My family even planned a May fundraiser earlier this year at our home in Show Low. Gosar and his staff never communicated with me until the last moment and suddenly canceled the event after months of planning. I knew then that Gosar had staff problems, since they did not plan and failed to communicate. I also knew that Gosar’s support was weak, since most people showed little interest in supporting him, mainly since he was the only Arizona Republican to vote to increase the debt ceiling.
Gosar should heed the old saying, the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. Being unorganized, failing to communicate and running at the first sign of a fight are organizational and character flaws. These problems just don’t go away by moving from the eastern portion to the western portion of Arizona.
