·       LD21 Rep Debbie Lesko:  Why will the EPA’s actions increase your utility bills?  Because the mandate will cost Arizona’s three major utility companies billions of dollars to meet the mandate and that cost will be passed onto you. Coal produces 80% of Tucson Electric’s power, 53% of SRP’s power, and 40% of APS’s power. There is no way that solar energy can replace coal in the near future.  it does not have the capacity. Less than 1% of the electric capacity in Arizona came from solar in the most recent U.S. Energy Information Administration report:  http://www.eia.gov/state/?sid=AZ#tabs-1

 

·       LD21 Rep Debbie Lesko:  Extremists who claim climate change is primarily caused by man are wrong and their policies are hurting our state and nation.I recently attended the 9th International Climate Change Conference.  Scientists from around the world concluded the following:
1.    Climate change is normal. It has always changed and will continue to change.
2.    There is no evidence that man-made CO 2 plays any significant role in climate change.
3.    The earth’s temperature as measured from satellites has not warmed in the last 17 years 5 mo.

·       Former Sen Russell Pearce: Yes! Proposition 122 To Appear On The 2014 Ballot Is A Critical State’s Rights Proposition: Delegates to the Constitutional Convention in 1787 feared an all-powerful federal government.  They had just fought a bloody war to free themselves from the tyranny of the English King, and they weren’t about to risk their precious freedom on far-away bureaucrats who might try to centralize power and take away their rights.  So, the Founders wrote a constitution that established a federal government with layers of checks and balances that would protect liberty and put chains on the power of the central government.  The federal government was prohibited from exercising any powers NOT delegated to it, and the powers that WERE delegated to it were few and enumerated.  Further, everyone understood that the powers held by the federal government were not powers that it assumed for itself but powers that were delegated to it by the states.  The states were to be a check on the abuse of power by the federal government – that is, the states were to be watchful and rein in the federal government whenever it began to usurp authority not delegated to it. 

Little by little over the last two centuries, the federal government has assumed more and more power that rightfully belongs to the states, and the states have not performed their proper role of checking abuses by the federal government.  Onerous environmental regulations, control over education, using the IRS to target political opponents, mandating health care, writing laws via Executive orders, rewriting other laws passed by Congress, and bailing out private companies are just a few examples, and the list goes on and on.  It’s time to recognize that a federal law that violates the U.S. Constitution is not a law at all.  Prop 122 will strengthen Arizona’s effort to oppose federal violations of the Constitution.  Vote “YES” on Prop 122.  --  Pearce is the Former President of the Arizona State Senate, the Former Chief Deputy for America’s Toughest lawman, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, and Host of “The Russell Pearce Show” on KKNT-960 “The Patriot” in Phoenix

·       Speaker Of The House Andy Tobin Welcomed Six Navajo Code Talkers and their families to the chamber Wednesday, July 16, 2015, following a ceremonial bill signing with Governor Brewer, which recognizes Aug. 14 as Navajo Code Talkers’ Day.  “The bravery, patriotism and brilliance of the Navajo Code Talkers will remain a point of pride for Arizona and our nation for all time,” said Tobin. “The efforts of these men saved the lives of many.”  During World War II, 29 Navajo recruits developed an unbreakable code that was used to communicate information vital to battlefield commanders, particularly in the Pacific theater. The Code Talkers then used the code to rely commands particularly from ship to shore. The code was never broker and was not declassified until 1968. Navajo Code talkers Peter MacDonald, George James, George Willie, Bahe Ketchum, Joe Kellwood and Dan Akee visited the House after the signing ceremony. Roy Hawthorne who attended the signing ceremony was unable to take the tour. Rep. Jamescita Peshlakai, D-Cameron (Dist. 07) and Sen. Carlyle Begay, D-Ganado (Dist. 07) also attended the ceremony and visit to the House. Senate Bill 1099 designates Aug. 14 as Navajo Code Talkers.

·       LD28 Rep. Kate Brophy McGee and LD6 Rep. Brenda Barton  are assembling stakeholders to review existing animal cruelty statutes and consider draft legislation to set safety standards for pet boarding facilities. The initiative is in response to an incident this past June at a Gilbert boarding facility where 23 dogs died. Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Animal Crimes Investigations Unit (ACIU) is still looking into the circumstances of the deaths. “The stakeholder group will focus on policies that ensure when people entrust their beloved pets to a boarding facility, they will be safe and properly cared for,” said McGee. McGee and representatives for Sheriff Joe Arpaio have met to discuss the issue, and plans are underway to hold a news conference the week of July 21. “I look forward to working with the Sheriff Arpaio,” said Barton. “Sheriff Joe and ACIU have been very active in fighting domestic pet abuse, and the sheriff has worked to help legislation pass that protects all animals.” In addition to members from the Legislature and law enforcement, the stakeholder group will include representatives for small and large pet boarding businesses, county government and animal welfare groups. “This is a very complicated issue with many interests,” said McGee. “Ultimately the goal is to protect our pets, not interfere or unduly burden businesses that operate properly.” Barton who chairs the House Agriculture and Water Committee, noted that the animal cruelty legislation she sponsored last session, House Bill 2587, is an important piece of the puzzle. “Law enforcement and prosecuting attorneys have told me that existing statutes make it hard for them to investigate and prosecute animal cruelty and neglect,” said Barton. “We need to find a way to strengthen the laws so animals are protected.

·       CD9 candidate Wendy Rogers reported her campaign raised $138,367.90 during the 2nd quarter on her financial report. This helped increase her total cash on hand to $387,346.69. “We have picked up astounding momentum.  Everywhere I travel, volunteers clamor to get onboard.  More and more supporters drop into campaign headquarters on a daily basis to get involved, because they not only want to be a part of something special, but also a refreshingly well organized campaign.” says Rogers.  “Our campaign indeed is remarkable.  Over 1,300 people have donated to us.  We cherish that.  I honor every donation we've received,”  Rogers continued. Building on amazing success from prior quarters, Wendy Rogers has continued to amass resources and endorsements needed to win the seat. The Republican primary election for Congressional District 9 will be held on August 26th, 2014. A 5th-generation military officer, Lt Col Wendy Rogers (ret) spent her career serving her country as one of the first 100 women pilots in the Air Force.  For the past 17 years, she and her husband have met payroll as job creators in their own business, have raised two children, and now have two grandchildren.  www.wendyrogers.org

 

·       Gubernatorial Candidate Frank Riggs:  The campaign is heating up and we need volunteers to help us reach voters across Arizona. Want to get involved? Join us this Friday and Saturday at 4:00 pm for phone banks & volunteer training in Phoenix (New Church at 1728 West Grovers -- SE Corner of Grovers and 19th Ave in Phoenix). We'll have pizza and beverages for all our volunteers and we're looking forward to a great turnout so we hope you can make it!  Sign-up now if you plan on attending and encourage your friends and family to do the same!  With your help and support, I can win this race and together we can put Arizona on the right track. I will secure the border, lower taxes and grow our economy. Can I count on you to volunteer for my campaign and help us win? Thanks.

 

·       Cd2 Candidate Chuck Wooten: It's all harmless until you realize your vote was cast for another politician who does you harm. We have so little trust in many elected politicians. Citizens are sick of the status quo. I'm not going to be silent any longer.

       Shelley Kais - Why did Shelley Kais decided to no longer work as Martha McSally's Campaign Manager and strike out on her own? (McSally introducing Kais as her CM) http://youtu.be/Vy6GgoD724w   Full disclosure should be given on both candidates' behalf, especially when each of them have filed charges against my campaign that cost the taxpayer money to resolve and are deemed frivolous at best.

       Martha McSally Grassroots Campaign? When McSally says: "Nearly 90% of our donations came from grassroots donors, showing the widespread desire for a change in Washington."… McSally’s financial fund raisers: Eric Cantor - in Phoenix event-with-eric-cantor , John Boehner - $500 per plate! benefit-for-new-fundraising , Joe Ferguson's article outside-spenders. Integrity is the question. Who can you trust?   Beltway-based super PAC - $109,000 in campaign donations. Winning Women - Paul Singer, founder of multibillion-dollar hedge fund Elliott Management - $100,000 plus in campaign donations. "Slightly more than a third of money collected by the Congressional District 2 front-runners have come from political action groups, not individuals." - Joe Ferguson . 

      I knew that running for a Congressional office would not be easy and that I would be attacked and tested. I believe in representing Southern Arizona to Washington and not the other way around. Please come to any of my events. I intend to earn your trust every step of the way. I will give you straight answers to your questions. I am asking for your vote and your support. I promise you integrity and honesty.

 

·       CD2 Candidate Martha McSally: Politician Ron Barber knows how to line his pockets with outside money. His fundraising report reveals he's been filling his campaign coffers from Democrat PACs and politicians, proving his loyalties lie with his Washington pals, not the people of Southern Arizona. We need someone who works for us, not Nancy Pelosi and her cronies. Martha McSally is an independent voice who will lead with honesty and integrity and will stand up for the people of Southern Arizona. "Vulnerable" Barber's money trail reveals big contributions from Democrat insiders, who dole out his cash and marching orders.This cycle, he's taken:

  • $245,206 - Democrat PACs and Campaign Committees
  • $14,000 - Democrat Leader Nancy Pelosi
  • $16,000 -  Democrat Minority Whip Steny Hoyer
  • $10,000 - Democrat National Committee Chair Debbie-Wasserman Schultz
  • $10,000 - author of Democrats' tax and spend budget, Chris Van Hollen
  • $5,000 -  Democrat National Committee Chair Steve Israel

Barber is not afraid to reward his financial backers, even if it means selling out hardworking Southern Arizonans. He tried to stall a badly needed jobs project in Southern Arizona to reward the big-union organizations that have given him over $500,000 over the past two cycles. He betrayed Southern Arizonans to fall in line by voting against the Keystone XL pipeline, opposing flexibility for working moms, and for voting to increase interest rates on students. Sources: Barber letter to delay Tucson Airport Control Tower project (2/3/2014). Barber accepted over $500,000 from union PACs since 2012 (Opensecrets.org, 2012 and 2014). Barber voted for an amendment that would give Obama full control over construction of Keystone XL pipeline (H.R. 3, Roll Call #173, 5/22/2013). Barber voted against a bill giving flexibility to working moms (H.R. 1406, Roll Call #137, 5/8/2013). Barber voted to allow student loan interest rates to increase (H.R. 1911, Roll Call #183 5/23/13).
