4-3-13 MCRC Briefs


April 3, 2013
 
UPDATE:  A report came in early this morning that Riders USA is sponsoring a "No Amnesty" Rally between 6-7- pm, April 4 at AZ GOP headquarters, 3501 N. 24th St., Phx.


·        Proud Responses To Firing: Terri Proud, a former legislator, claims that she was taken out of context in an article that appeared in the Arizona Daily Star, written by a student at the University of Arizona.  The backlash to this single article resulted in the well-respected director of The Arizona Department of Veteran's Services being asked to resign by the Governor and sent a shock wave through the veterans community.
Proud claims the "student journalist" misrepresented herself as from the Arizona Daily Star and took her comments out of context. Proud is not against women serving in combat and simply posed a valid question as to how the military would accommodate women in combat, when the VA is still struggling to accommodate women vets. 
Proud claims her comments were not conveyed correctly, "Regardless of the reason, the result devastated the life of Col. Joey Strickland who did not deserve such careless treatment. The Governor's office should check facts before drawing conclusions."
Strickland has been a strong supporter for veterans. As one Tucson vet put it, "Strickland has been our go-to guy whenever we needed help and his sudden removal is disturbing."
Proud commented, "If the Governor has it out for me, or has something against former legislators finding jobs, then I was not aware of it until now. As a legislator, I met the Governor only once." Her office did not contact Proud for comment on the April 2nd article prior to requesting Strickland's resignation only a day after it was published.
Proud has been a vocal advocate for women while in the legislature. It was her bill that found support for homeless women vets. Nobody wants to talk about real issues facing women. Women vets have had a difficult time in Arizona; it's not all VA centers that even offer health care for women vets. A subject that most don't usually hear or talk about, but a reality for women vets today. Everyone should be concerned about the double standards in existence.
Strickland was an avid supporter for Arizona homeless vets and helped open many  veterans homes in the state, he was concerned and worked on issues affecting disabled vets as well as elderly vets and Native American veterans.  
The position offered to Proud at Veteran Services was as an administrative assistant in the Military Relief  Family Fund, Homeless Veterans and Overseeing Women Conferences. It paid $40,000 per year.
Proud is asking the public to support Strickland who was appointed to the post by then-Gov. Janet Napolitano and who helped establish Arizona as the most veteran supportive state in the union for education, jobs and wellness. He is very highly respected for his 29 honorable years of service to his country in the United States Army and for his service as director of The Arizona Department of Veteran's Services. Strickland should not have been removed, Brewer overreacted.  Contact the Governor's office at (602) 542-4331 to let them know Strickland should be brought back. –Terry Proud - Contact: 520-877-3230.
