·       Congressman Paul Gosar's Thanksgiving Message

 

·       Happy Thanksgiving:  In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians, after enduring a brutal winter and many hardships, shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations.

For more than two centuries the tradition of celebrating days of thanksgiving were faithfully observed by Americans of all walks of life. Then in 1863 President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November. 

We as a nation have been blessed by almighty God far beyond any other and it is my sincere prayer that our future conduct at all levels would be such that promotes a continuance of His blessings.

As we spend the day feasting, relaxing and enjoying the company of family and friends, may each of us pause for a moment to reflect upon all the goodness and blessings we have received throughout the year and offer our thanks to Him from whom all blessings flow. 

May God grant each of you a very blessed and happy Thanksgiving Day. - Jim Dutton, Chairman Yavapai County Republican Committee

·       Congressman David Schweikert, Chairman of the House Small Business Subcommittee on Investigations, Oversight and Regulations, urges everyone to remember to shop at local small businesses, galleries and boutiques within our individual districts. He also cautions:

The Monday after Thanksgiving has come to be known as “Cyber-Monday” as online retailers look to capitalize on holiday shopping also.  “Phishing” –the practice of online scammers imitating legitimate businesses to gain access to personal information for fraudulent purposes—remains a problem.  Legitimate companies will never ask for your account number or password via email.  When conducting online transactions, make sure the payment portal has a secure URL (designated by https://).  You can find additional tips to protect yourself from scams on the Federal Trade Commission website at www.onguardonline.gov

·       Congressman David Schweikert, Chairman of the House Small Business Subcommittee on Investigations, Oversight and Regulations, released the following statement regarding the latest delay in the implementation of the President's health care plan: "Working families and small business owners cannot plan for their family's health care when there is so much uncertainty in the implementation of the President's health care plan.  For three years, the American people were promised a working, affordable and dependable health care system.  Instead, it's been a long-list of delays and broken promises.  How many more Americans will have to lose their coverage before the President concedes that Washington and government is simply not capable of acting as the nation's health care administrator?  It's time to put politics aside and for the President to work with Congress to go through his health care plan line-by-line, dollar-by-dollar so that we can understand the financial and economic consequences of this system and what delays the American people can expect next."

 

·       Attorney General Tom Horne Has Announced Another Auto Repair “Sting” has resulted in a $28,000.00 Consent Judgment against Fletcher’s Tire and Auto Service, Inc., an Arizona corporation that owns and operates multiple auto repair locations in Arizona. The Fletcher’s Gilbert location was the subject of the investigation as a result of consumer complaints.“My office continues to conduct regular undercover auto repair ‘stings’ and this time Fletcher’s Tire and Auto took the bait,” Horne said. “Our ongoing auto sting operations are designed to identify and deter repair shops that recommend and perform unnecessary repairs, with the end result of encouraging all repair shops to behave honestly."  Assistant Attorney General Rebecca Salisbury handled this case.

 

·       Congressman Paul Gosas Is Asking for small business owners or their friends to e-mail the owner’s name, a photo of the business and a few sentences about the business to him at GosarBusiness@mail.house.gov so he can recognize them with an official Congressional ‘Enterpreneur Certificate’ in celebration of the Nov 30 Small Business Saturday.  Gosar notes that small businesses are responsible for 64% of the new jobs created between 1993 and 2011.
