Frances E. Barwood
Although it has been a long time coming, Frances Barwood will finally share her personal experiences with what has become known as The Phoenix Lights and its aftermath in the form of two books: one book is on the objects that passed over Arizona on March 13, 1997, and the other on government cover-ups, which also relates to the first book in many areas.

Ufologists, Arizonians and eyewitnesses to the huge crafts that flew over the Arizona skies back in March of 1997 are all familiar with the name "Frances Emma Barwood". Her name is synonymous with the events; her solitary voice pierced the silence of the restrained politically correct and demanded answers!!

Frances Barwood did not duck and run; she did not pass the buck; she did not ignore the situation, nor make light of it (as other government officials would later do) — she did what she was elected to do, i.e., represent her constituents and the best interests of the city of Phoenix.

The airspace of her city and state was repeatedly violated by a huge unidentified craft, (and smaller ones), which maneuvered through the skies without impedance; people wanted to know what it was — she was the one to ask!

Born on January 13, 1944, in Ridgewood, Queens, New York, Frances moved from Williston, Vermont, to northeast Phoenix in 1980.

Frances was elected to serve her first term on the Phoenix City Council starting January 1992 and was re-elected to a second term January 1994. As Councilwoman, she represented District 2, which includes most of northeast Phoenix and is the city’s largest district. It encompasses over 130 square miles with a population at the time of over 160,000 and is more than 1/4 of the size of Phoenix.

Frances served on the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) Air Quality Advisory Committee, as well as the following Phoenix City Council Subcommittees: Environment and Natural Resources Subcommittee, Chair; Family, Youth and Education Subcommittee, member and Ethics and Audit Subcommittee, member.

In January 1997, her peers elected Frances as the Vice-Mayor. Prior to being elected to the Phoenix City Council, she served as a member of the Greater Paradise Valley Chamber of Commerce and precinct and state committeeman for Legislative District 24 and then District 28. She has also served on the Squaw Peak Extension Advisory Committee, the Transportation Committee for the Community Council, and several other organizations. Then, the March 13, 1997, event occurred, and everything changed for this dedicated civic worker.

Today, Frances and her husband, Mike, have 3 adult children and a 26-year-old grandson. They permanently reside in a small rural community south of Prescott, where Frances is again active in local organizations.
