·       LD30 Chairman/McCain Resolution author Timothy Schwartz make have a new handle  --  MCRC Chairman A J LaFaro was overheard referring to him as “Arizona’s own Joe the Plumber” after Schwartz obtained successful passage of his resolution from the AZGOP State Committeeman delegation in Tempe. That is two wins for Schwartz within two weeks. The MCRC overwhelming passed the resolution on Jan. 11, followed by the AZGOP State Committeeman loudly passing it on Jan. 25.


·       The political rumor mill has been busy today… but chatter is off -base. To set the record straight: MCRC Executive Director Tom Husband, who turned in his resignation letter on Saturday told Briefs, “I had planned to resign by year-end but stayed on to help shepherd the censure resolution.  I plan to spend my time as chairman of the Arizona Taxpayers Action Committee informing Republicans about the turncoats that voted with Dems and approved the Medicaid Expansion that will cost taxpayers tons of money.”

Husband became the Executive Director after serving as the MCRC Chair.  Husband served as the Executive Director for four years under former Chairmen Rob Haney and has served current Chairman A J LaFaro for the past year. 

In accepting Husband’s resignation, LaFaro, who has known for some time of Husband’s plans, praised Husband with “heartfelt thanks and deepest appreciation.”  In sharing Husband’s resignation with the MCRC Executive Board, “LaFaro wrote, “Tom’s years of untiring efforts and service above self with the MCRC and the Republican Party speak for themselves. Working with Tom over the years, especially this past year, has been a great joy and I will sorely miss him. While Tom has resigned from the MCRC, I am confident he has not retreated from the conservative grassroots political activism he truly enjoys.  It is individuals like Tom Husband that give me hope for America.” 


·       Editor’s Note:  Tom Husband’s resignation leaves a big hole in the MCRC leadership.  It has been a pleasure working with Husband throughout his term as MCRC Chairman and his following years as the Executive Director. Always pleasant and professional, he definitely will be missed. – Editor Frosty Taylor


·       The Sala Blanca Restaurant in the Legends Shopping Center, 20221 N. 67th Ave in Glendale is making a real hit as ‘the place for lunch” with West Valley Republican pols.  Briefs has seen such folks as Sen. Judy Burges, Rep Phil Lovas, former Maricopa County Republican Chairman Lyle Tuttle and Congressman Trent Franks assistant Shari Farrington eating some tasty dishes in there at various times recently. Good food and desserts are heavenly.  Try those cream cheese filled dessert chimmies drizzled with honey.  No wonder the politician/activists keep going back! More than just yum.  They are super yum, yum!  Yeah, they cater as well… and between you and me, they are preparing for a big expansion in dining space in the near future.
