Are tickets required to attend?
Will this event be Live Streamed?
Hi Phyllis. This is a free event, no tickets required. As of right now, there are no plans to livestream/record the town hall but if that changes, we’ll announce it on our online platforms.
Am I to understand that any questions posted to our Congresswoman, Debbie Lesko, are to be pre-approved by Debbie Lesko? If so, this would not, I would argue, a substantive Town Hall meeting.
If pre-approved Q&A is the ONLY way she will meet with the community, that speaks volumes.
Is this question going to be answered? Or perhaps the lack of response speaks volumes, making the answer blatantly clear.
I agree. She voted against second impeachment after Jan. 6 saying we had to move forward and heal. But why did she vote against certification of Biden win if she really wants country to heal? This would be a waste of time for anyone who supports the constitution
I agree, this isn’t a Town Hall as the Congresswoman will only address concerns & questions that VERY much are aligned to her party. It is evident that she will not step outside of the parameters dictated by her party, so many of will, again, remain unheard by this individual and certainly, will not address anything of value as the current state of affairs related to the insurrection and her role in that & all actions before and after. She doesn’t even pretend to represent anyone else except for her narrow definition of a patriot.
We need candidates that will represent everyone and not be so partisan; Ms. Lesko has demonstrated she is incapable of this.
Thank you all for intolerance and misinformation. Do you even know what a coup is? re: Biden certification. I would not certify anyone from any party without a true audit. But the truth is often too hard to swallow, thus oppose audits.
Totally agree with Diane’s question. Will she only answer preapproved questions?
I am interested In her role in the J6 coup attempt since it has now come out under oath, that she was part of the planning.
If Congresswoman, Debbie Lesko is screening and pre-approving questions, all of her answers will be coached and rehearsed. And, whose to say her fans haven’t been coached what to ask in the first place. This seems more like a campaign rally than a Town Hall Meeting.
Definition of a Town Hall Meeting-“Town hall meetings, also referred to as town halls or town hall forums, an expression that originates mainly from North America, are a way for local and national politicians to meet with their constituents either to hear from them on topics of interest or to discuss specific upcoming legislation or regulation. During periods of active political debate, town halls can be a locus for protest and more active debate”.
This does not sound like what SCW is “Hosting”.
Hello everyone. The request to submit questions online through the SurveyMonkey link above was to help reduce redundancy and enable Rep. Lesko to answer as many questions as possible during the town hall.
Is this town hall open to just Sun City West residents or to anyone interested in attending the event?
Hi Maureen. The town hall is a free and open event but we are encouraging SCW residents to attend as Congresswoman Debbie Lesko is their national representative.
Hello everyone! Again, we would like to issue a reminder that if you have any questions for Congresswoman Debbie Lesko’s town hall on May 4, please use the SurveyMonkey link provided above. You can also submitted questions prior to the start of the town hall on notecards that will be provided.
Repeating a question that went unanswered previously.
Are only prescreened questions allowed?
“You can also submitted questions PRIOR to the start of the town hall on notecards that will be provided.”
I submitted a question, but doubt she will answer. We need answers, not political spin.
1. How many illegal aliens have entered AZ and how many are going to be returned to their respective countries – what is the timeframe?
2. Is it true that illegal aliens are receiving money-food stamps-free housing- free cell phones-free utilities – and more importantly free medical services? If this is true what are you going to do to stop this and return those needed assets to those American’s who are in need.
3. What can I do as a volunteer to secure your election – help reshape the Republican Party to an honarble – dignified – honest party. (I am not throwing you into the box w/the Rhino’s – they have lost their way, not you)
I would like to hear Ms. Lesko explain to constituents exactly what her level of involvement with attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election was and if any and if this sworn testimony to the 1/6 Committee by Mark Meadows’ staff aide Cassidy Hutchinson is or is not the truth:
“They felt that he had the authority to, pardon me if my phrasing isn’t correct on this, but — send votes back to the States or the electors back to the states,” Hutchinson said, referring to Pence.
According to AP reporting, “When asked if any of the lawmakers disagreed with the idea that the vice president had such authority, Hutchinson said there was no objection from any of the Republican lawmakers.”
Did Ms. Lesko then or does now think VP Mike Pence had the authority to send AZ Electors back to the state and accept a slate of fake electors? Will she confirm or deny that Mr. Pence’s actions were constitutional?
Does or does she not agree that notwithstanding her well known opposition to current administration policies, is Joe Biden nevertheless the duly elected President of the United States?
I am not a SCW resident but do reside in CD8.
Does Ms. Lesko know that she is being roundly mocked on national media including Newsweek for her recent Twitter post saying “Border Patrol agents have apprehended more than 1,000,000,000 migrants at our southern border in just 6 months.”? That would amount to 14% of the entire world population. Duh! As usual, a total national embarrassment to the state of Arizona.
