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.
AZGOP Candidate Announcements can be sent to for posting in the Briefs.
