Congratulations on your Blog! Hopefully it will raise some thought in this state and wake people up to the fact that the changes being made are not in the best interest of the people. Keep up the good work.
Nice to have your reasonable, experienced and passionate voice in the stream of public commentary. There are a lot of people who would classify themselves as centrists and that’s always how your positions and activism have struck me.
Thank you for your articulate blogs that rise above the standard, partisan, talking-point blather. Your work is as necessary as it is refreshing.

On Montini about your web site~~and I want to thank you for your brave stance to maintain your humanity right in the face of the irrational anti immigrant hatred that is going on in Arizona today ~~~in so far as cognitive thought is concerned.. Somewhat extremely late, I offer my most sincere ‘pesame’ (condolences) at the death of your husband.. Please understand the profundity of a ‘pesame’ ~~~It is a sentiment that comes from deep within me, and once I feel that I must express it IT MUST BE STATED.
To say that I admire your stance is a quantum understatement. I have lost friendships over this irrational anti-immigrant miasma of hate that has taken over even moderate and tolerant Americans, even confused Hispanics. My family lines go back to generations of Spaniards who settled New Mexico long before the Mayflower arrived. and were part of America long before the Mexican Revolution and long before the Mexican American War (it should be the American Mexican War). I am AMERICAN, and I don’t have to ”melt’ to be one, and not only because I have friends and relatives in Mexico do I see the immigrants whatever their status as human beings ..
Thank you so much for being you
Thank Montini for letting us know about you. Arizona and the U.S. need more people like you. Consider a run for congress. How great would it be to have you representing us than Ben Quayle or any of the ones like him, Franks or Gosar. You and Gabrielle Giffords would give us reasons to be proud of a state that our legislature makes that a difficult proposition. Thank you for being a rare voice of reason.
I just read about you in Laurie Roberts column on Saturday the 17th! You have given me hope for this state which seems filled with anger. I do feel bad for folks who harbor so much anger. However the convergence of anger and power cannot help but translate into debilitating policies for the state.
You come from a hopeful place of creation and consensus, rather than of destruction and divisiveness.
I compliment you, Julie, on promoting comprehensive immigration legislation. I think the only
common sense approach is making employers verify their employee’s status and have a legal worker program. We need their services and they are good people.
The loss of Nick is personal with me also as he grew up in my N.D. township and I knew his parents and grandfather.
We are all so proud of you Julie!! And I think you are right, Nikki would want this, you keep up the fight young lady!! I know you can do it
Miss you Nikki… you were a good kid… never got to know you as a cop… but I know you were a darn good one!! God Bless You Nikki for keeping us all safe
Hugs to you Julie and the boys,
Just joined your blog and became a Facebook follower to Erfle Uncuffed.
I applaud your statements, your well-reasoned views, and especially your dedication to getting a reasonable dialogue and discussion going.
Sept. 18, 2007. A date I know you will never forget. A date all your brothers and sisters with the Phoenix Police Department and Arizona Concerns of Police Survivors will also never forget. A loss for you and your two beautiful, wonderful boys. A loss for the Police Department, city of Phoenix and all the citizens of the U.S. Love your blog and web site.
