“Mr. President, feel free to use that pen to approve this job-creating project (Keystone Pipeline) .” – Congressman Matt Salmon


·       Maricopa County Republican Committee Chairman A.J. LaFaro has announced the Feb 12 PC Day at the Capitol has been cancelled due to circumstances beyond MCRC control. He hopes to revive the event next year.

LaFaro emphasized, “It is it is extremely important that precinct committeemen and patriotic conservatives who are actively engaged, or want to engage,  in the Arizona legislative process through the Request To Speak (RTS) System  go to the Capitol and create a new account at either the Senate or House Buildings.”

If you can't get to the Capitol to get this done, LaFaro advises that PCs e-mail Jose Borrajero, MCRC's 2nd Vice Chairman and founder of the Arizona Rapid Response Team (AZRRT), at  with your name and e-mail address and he will be glad to go to the Capitol and create an account for you.  If anyone is interesting in assisting Borrajero during business hours, please contact him at

Also contact Tracy Langston,  Arizona Director for the Center for Self Governance (CSG).  The CSG has a proven training curriculum that teaches activists how to effectively work with elected officials and policy makers at all levels of our government.  Tracy can be reached at 480-529-1123 to answer questions and/or enroll you in one of the CSG training courses.

·       MCRC Chairman A J LaFaro: Responding To Comments Made This Week By Sen John McCain Backers regarding the passage of the county and state ‘Censure McCain Resolutions’, Maricopa County Republican Committee Chairman LaFaro stated today, “Based on the responses from the diminishing number of John McCain supporters - they are either in denial, senile or lying to public again. It’s unfortunate liberal individuals like John McCain, Jon Kyl, Democrat gubernatorial candidate Fred Duval, and Duval’s campaign manager Grant Woods - who is a Republican – would use Saul Alinsky tactics to try silencing the millions of people in Arizona and America who disagree with them on the critical issues and their progressive socialist bullying tactics.  The censure and the people who support it have never used demeaning or derogatory terms or phrases like John McCain and his few public supporters.”

This was the first time the association gave an award to state legislators.

Its $4.6 billion impact on the state’s economy generates 49,800 jobs for Arizonans, according to the AMA. Pratt first started working as an Arizona rancher. He currently owns and operates a pool construction firm in Casa Grande where is resides. Pratt is a second-generation Arizonan; his grandfather arrived in the state in 1880 from Germany. Shope has worked for the ASU Disability Resource Center, the Arizona Republican Party and since 2008 has operated a family-owned, community supermarket in Coolidge where he lives. Shope’s grandfather was a miner in the copper industry for 32 years.  Contact: Christopher Leone
