Cindy is married to Andy, and they have six children and eight grandchildren. She is chairman of the Gilbert County Island Fire District Board and board member of Right Woman PAC.

Congressman Biggs will share his perspective on national legislation and what’s really going on in Washington, D.C. He will provide his analysis of the impact on our freedom of adhering to the United States Constitution and the rule of law versus socialism. “Keeping Our Constitutional Republic” will address the effects of recent and proposed legislation on our local, national, and global interests. After hearing from Congressman Biggs, you will know the rest of the story that you may not be hearing on your nightly news channel!
