·       Prescott Valley Tribune Analysis  The Prescott Valley Tribune is reporting that Yavapai County had a voter turnout of 61% of registered voters, a full 6l% better than the second-best turnout in Pima County. The lowest  was 35% in Yuma County. The preliminary statewide average was 47.5%.  82% of the ballots cast were from early voters – up from the 72% of early voters in the general election two years ago.

 

·       Regarding Complaints About AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham using the Republican Party e-mail to distribute his personal campaign re-election  endorsements.  Graham says it was ‘an honest error”  by his Communications Director Tim Sifert.  Graham has since set up a separate campaign account. Reader responses:

1.     “Is he going to reimburse AZGOP for staff time? Why is he using GOP staff to do his campaign mailings?”

2.     “The ‘honest’ thing to do is to allow All Candidates utilize the same system to make their announcements.  Any staff member who made such an ‘honest mistake’ should be fired.....inexcusable!”

·       Mark Lewis: EPA’s Clean Power Plan Will Raise Energy Prices By 45%  -- EPA Carbon Regulation Comments Are Due This Weekend. The EPA Clean Power plan (carbon rules) are a massive cost shift in to consumers.They will raise your home/farm energy bills up 22%-45%, and water prices will increase accordingly.Please join me in objecting to these massive cost increases. I testified against these unfunded mandates at the EPA hearing last Wed. in Phoenix. It’s another unfunded mandate at the expense of manufacturing industry. Its killing jobs. Now Obama is going to use another Executive order to mandate Carbon regulations and price increases. Thank your Republican house members for voting to hold the EPA rules back. Schweikert, Gosar, Salmon and Franks are all holding the line against massive rate increases from the EPA. Please mail the EPA this weekend  objecting to the job killing EPA Clean Power plan. Due Sunday Nov.31st. Email these sentences: “We cannot afford more carbon energy regulations until 2044 when the economy recovers and our jobs are restored. AZ has no local natural gas, we have local coal, solar and nuclear fuels that will remain viable until 2044, avoid these massive price increases for 30 years.” EPA email address to: Email A-and-R-Docket@epa.gov Include docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OAR-2013-0602 in the subject line of the message. Please voice your opinion on these rules in this weekend, and force the EPA to respond to you. We need individual email comments, even if your association objected. You need to act. Thank you . -- Mark Lewis is the  Director of the Central AZ Project mark@marklewis.com

 

·       By Cristina Marcos The House on Wednesday passed legislation to prevent the Environmental Protection Agency from issuing new regulations unless it provides the scientific data to justify them. Passage of the measure, H.R. 4012, fell largely along party lines with a vote of 237-190. The bill is part of the House GOP's package of legislation on the floor this week to limit the EPA's regulatory powers. On Tuesday, the House passed a measure to reform the EPA's Scientific Advisory Board.
