·       Words Of Wisdom From Yavapai County Republican Committee Chairman Jim Dutton:  “The members of the Executive Committee are duly elected individuals who serve in temporary and voluntary positions. They come and they go according to the will of the precinct committeemen and their own personal willingness to serve.   For some to think they can punish or demean the members of the Executive Committee without harming the Republican Party as a whole is ludicrous and delusional.”

 

·       LD21 Chairman Kevin Payne sent the following message to the Maricopa County Republican Committee Executive Guidance Committee (MCRC EGC) today: “Just thought I'd give everyone a heads up that LD21 passed a new resolution last night (11-14-13).   What this means to me is before I can vote on any resolutions to be considered by the EGC I have to bring them to the LD for my District to consider.  So I ask that when each of you have a resolution you plan on submitting to the EGC for consideration that you send it to (MCRC EGC Chair ) AJ  (LaFaro) early on so he can send it out in time for this to happen.  Here is a copy of the LD21 resolution.

AJ has agreed to try to get them out to me two weeks in advance of the EGC meeting.  Thanks AJ!  -  LD21 Chairman Kevin Payne.


A RESOLUTION OF THE LEGISLATIVE DISTRICT 21 PRECINCT

COMMITTEEMEN IN OPPOSITION TO

MARICOPA COUNTY REPUBLICAN EXECUTIVE GUIDANCE COMMITTEE

PASSING RESOLUTIONS BY CIRCUMVENTING THE INPUT OF

ELECTED AND APPOINTED PRECINCT COMMITTEEMEN

ü  WHEREAS, Precinct Committeemen are elected and appointed officials of the Republican Party, representing their Precinct Constituencies within their county and district; and

ü  WHEREAS, the duly elected and appointed Precinct Committeemen of the County constitutes the County Committee of the Republican Party (ARS 16-821); and

ü  WHEREAS, Precinct Committeemen are the grassroots of the Republican Party and are touted as being the most important position in the Party; and

ü  WHEREAS, the Officers of Legislative District LD21, are elected by the Precinct Committeemen to administer the business of the District, not to formulate policy; and

ü  WHEREAS, the Maricopa County Republican Committee (MCRC) Executive Guidance

Committee (EGC) were also elected by the Precinct Committeemen to administer the business of the County, not to formulate policy; and

ü  WHEREAS, the MCRC EGC continues to take it upon themselves to pass resolutions that have not been presented in advance to the Precinct Committeemen in order to get their views on important issues; and

ü  WHEREAS, resolutions are not always being presented to the EGC members until immediately prior to a vote and often only one side of the issue is presented; and

ü  WHEREAS, a resolution can pass with only 9 EGC member votes, which is less than half a percent (0.5%) of the more than 3,300 Precinct Committeemen in Maricopa County, thus enabling the EGC to make sweeping decisions on important issues while circumventing input from all Precinct Committeemen;

ü  NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED by the Precinct Committeemen of LD21 that in order to assure that the statutory role of the Precinct Committeemen is not usurped by the members of the EGC, we hereby affirm and declare our opposition to the MCRC EGC passing resolutions without an affirmative vote by a quorum of the duly elected and appointed Precinct Committeemen in Legislative District 21; and

ü  BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED by the Precinct Committeemen of LD21 that we demand the MCRC ECG treat Precinct Committeemen as the officials they are by allowing them to speak for their Constituencies; and

ü  THEREFORE BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED by the Precinct Committeemen of LD21 that  we expect our District Chairman (or their representative), who is a member of the MCRC EGC, to present ALL resolutions at the appropriate LD21 meeting when a quorum of PCs are present prior to voting on them at an EGC meeting, and to vote on such resolutions in accordance with the majority vote of LD21 Precinct Committeemen.

·       Rep. David Schweikert Has Joined With 261 Members Of The House to successfully pass H.R. 3350, the Keep Your Health Plan Act.  As a result of the President's health care plan, millions of Americans like Lee Leons of Phoenix have received notifications that as a result of the President's health care plan, they are being dropped from their current health care plan.  The Keep Your Health Plan Act allows plans available on the individual market today to be offered next year.

"Working Americans like Lee are facing the impossible scenario of choosing between skyrocketing premiums under the President's health care plan or taking the risk of going without insurance," said Rep. Schweikert.  "It's clear now that the President cannot be trusted but that should not stop Democrats from joining with Republicans to do the right thing for people like Lee and demand that the Senate and the President take action and support the Keep Your Health Plan Act. In Arizona, the Obama Administration had projected 7,770 enrollees, but we learned this week that there were only 739," added Rep. Schweikert.  "Even when they manipulate the data, the results are still abysmal.  The fact is they knew this would happen, that millions of Americans would be exposed to this debacle and they still let it happen.  How can anyone trust anything this Administration tells them - I don't."

Documents released today by a Congressional Oversight Committee exposed that in July, project managers inside the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) were voicing serious concerns about the status of HealthCare.gov.outdoors
