·       There Was Lively Discussion At The Wickenburg Republican Club meeting Monday evening.  Attendees were briefed on the upcoming school district override by Override Committee Chairman Carolyn MacDonald and Board Member Curtis Arnett. MacDonald said the override funds would be used for teacher’s salaries. Arnett said he would get answers to the unanswered budget specific questions regarding the controversial Common Core (aka Az’s College & Career Ready Standards) program that is being implemented in Arizona schools.  The Wickenburg district serves roughly 1550 students in grades K-12 from an area of approximately 916 square miles and over 13,000 residents from La Paz, Maricopa and Yavapai Counties. The District employs roughly 200 people and has an operating budget of $8.6M.

 

·       Supt of Public Instruction Candidate Diane Douglas and LD13 Rep Darin Mitchell spoke strongly against Common Core Monday evening at the Wickenburg Republican Club meeting.  LD13 House candidate Diane Landis said she is still listening to both sides of the issue before taking a stand. Common Core has been banned by an increasing number of states across the nation.  Yesterday, the Iowa Governor signed an executive order law banning the implementation of Common Core in IA classrooms. Major concerns are federal control over local schools and reports of “social engineering” within the curriculum.

·       Why Do Sex And Race Continue To Drive Arizona Democrats' Leadership Decisions? Ousted Democrat Senator Complains of Sexism, Racism:  Robert Graham, Chairman Of The Arizona Republican Party, commented on the news that Democrat legislators in the Arizona Senate today ousted their leader and immediately elected new officials after five of the 13 Senate Democrats "stormed out" of the meeting.

The Arizona Capitol Times reported that Democrat Senator Minority Leader Leah Landrum Taylor was removed from her post by her peers and replaced with Senator Anna Tovar. Reporters Luige del Puerto and Ben Giles said of Taylor: Landrum Taylor was dumbfounded and furious about her ousting, telling the Arizona Capitol Times that the vote was “the most blatant, racist, disrespectful move I’ve ever seen in my life.”

Also quoted in their report is this comment from Democrat Senator Linda Lopez of Tucson: “I am appalled. I have never seen anything like this happen. It was driven by purely selfish motives on the part of a few people,” Lopez said. “I believe there was racism at play. I believe there was sexism at play.”

Today's incident is a reminder of a similar episode of race and gender-based leadership decisions made less than a year ago by Arizona Democrat National Committeewoman Carolyn Warner, who demanded during an official party meeting that Democrats "quit spending money on white men."

"Now it's a pattern. Again we see the elites in the Democrat Party using gender and race criteria to drive people away from participation in the their party's decisions," said Graham.  "The Democrats are doing the same to their voters when party leaders have already chosen their candidates for governor and attorney general -- completely excluding voters from having their say in the election."

Warner's comments are reflected in the minutes of the Arizona Democratic Party's Executive Board Meeting on November 17, 2012. Warner, one of the most experienced Democrat party leaders in Arizona, ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Senate in 1976, and was the Democratic nominee for governor of Arizona in 1986. She was elected by the Democratic Party of Arizona to represent them at the DNC in 2004, 2008, and 2012.
