·       Censure-Of-McCain-Should-Warn-Pols-Against-DC-Deals

·       ATTN PCs - Volunteers Needed: Republican Precinct Committeemen Or State Committee Are Needed To Collect Signatures Of Co-sponsors For The “Resolution To Censure Sen. John McCain” petition prior to the opening of the Arizona GOP State Mandatory meeting scheduled at 9 am, Jan 25 at the at Grace Community Church, 1200 E Southern Ave, Tempe, 85282.  To comply with the AZ GOP Bylaws at least 20% of the delegates (in person) representing at least four counties must sign the (resolution) petition for it to be presented from the floor for a vote of the assembled delegates. The resolution will be presented by LD30 Chairman Timothy Schwartz who authored the original resolution that passed overwhelmingly by the Maricopa County Republican precinct committeemen at their Jan 11 mandatory meeting. Apache, Mohave and Cochise GOP PCs have passed similar resolutions.

Volunteers are asked to meet at 6:30 am, (prior to the start of credentialing) in the guest parking area near the Connection Center/Lamb Chapel along the north wall of the church parking lot for material distribution and instructions.  Please bring a clipboard and pens. Early morning lighting may be limited, so a clip-on lamp or a flashlight for your clipboard may also be a good idea. Those interested in volunteering should contact MCRC EGC Member-at-Large Andrew Costanzo at andrew@theirishgifthouse.com  as soon as possible.
