·       A J LaFaro: Open Letter to Arizona Republicans  - I have decided to not run for re-election for Chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Committee.

These past two years as your Chairman have been challenging yet very rewarding.  Leadership is knowing what must be done and paying the necessary price to get it done.  We worked hard and tirelessly preparing for the 2014 Mid-Term Elections.  The rewards for our efforts were resounding and historic victories here in Arizona and throughout America. 

Granted, we did not win every race here in Arizona; however, at this writing, it appears we have won every statewide race, strengthened our positions in the state legislature and gained significant ground throughout Arizona.

On the national stage, we crushed the Democrats and took back the U.S. Senate, strengthened our majority in the U.S. House and now have 31 states with Republican governors.

The American people have spoken.  They are fed up with the Obama Administration and the liberal Democrats failed progressive socialist experiment.  Our Republican Party message of conservative values is resonating throughout the land.  We have a mandate and an opportunity to continue our momentum to win the White House in 2016.  We cannot celebrate our victories or rest on our laurels for too long.  The liberal Democrats and progressive socialists have already begun their march to the White House.  I have no intentions of slowing down or being less vocal for my conservative values, beliefs and convictions.

It has been an honor and a privilege serving as your Maricopa County Republican Committee Chairman.

God bless all of you and God bless America, --A. J. LaFaro - Chairman, Maricopa County Republican Committee (MCRC)

·       On The Lighter Side: “Been trying to work on my RV today. I have a girl and a boy. I like the girl. She doesn't catch more fish than I do, she doesn't shoot better than I do, she doesn't mess with my tools and she doesn't take my stuff. Tomorrow I am going to take my truck down to UHaul and rent the biggest trailer they have. I am then going to drive the truck and trailer to my son's house and GET MY STUFF BACK!!!!!! Some will understand and others won't. I know xxxxx will; we've talked about this problem.”   Editor’s Note.  Of the 500 plus e-mail I get a day – this one cracked me up! I’m still chuckling.

 

·       The Former Navy SEAL who claims he fired the shot that killed Osama bin Laden says he doesn't care if people believe him. "The most important thing that I've learned in the last two years is to me it doesn't matter anymore if I am 'The Shooter.' The team got him," Robert O'Neill said in an audio interview with freelance journalist Alex Quade, a former CNN correspondent, that aired Friday on CNN's "AC360." CNN.com

 

·       Congressman Paul Gosar statement after the White House announced on Friday evening President Obama’s intent to nominate Loretta Lynch to be the next Attorney General of the United States: “Following in the footsteps of one of the most lawless Attorney Generals of all time, Eric Holder's potential successor has her work cut out to regain the faith of the American people. From the cover-up of Operation Fast and Furious to the illegal targeting of innocent Americans by the IRS, the fundamental trust between the American people and the country’s top law enforcement officer has never been worse.  This mistrust has made Americans fearful of a government class that is not held accountable to the same laws they mandate for everyone else. In order to instill confidence in the rule of law it is vitally important that the next Attorney General adhere to and uphold the entire Constitution and not pick and choose which laws to enforce based upon partisan, ideological beliefs.”

 

·       Congressman Matt Salmon: I was excited to announce the safe return of our Marine Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi earlier this week.  Andrew’s release was the capstone to an amazing month here in Arizona and a month of challenges across the country.

·       Maricopa Board of Supervisors Chairman Steve Chucri:  November is a month of remembrance. It is the time when we give thanks as a people, when we commemorate the end of the First World War, and when we go to the polls to exercise the rights in defense of which so many veterans have worn the uniform, carried the flag, and fought the good fight.

Rep. Salmon Letter to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson Regarding Illegal Immigrant Recidivism in Arizona

 

·       LD6 Rep Brenda Barton: In Coconino County, thousands of phone calls were made urging people to vote for our team.  The crew up there distributed thousands of door hangers with our slate in many neighborhoods. In the Verde Valley, volunteers jumped into action putting up signs, phoning, and other very necessary tasks needed to win!  In Sedona, over 2,500 slate flyers were distributed throughout the community. Gila and Navajo Counties likewise turned out and really made a huge difference in the outcome this past Election Day.  Both ran local newspaper ads and radio advertising.

 

·       Secretive-Mexican-Police-Unit-Questioned-Over-3-Murdered-Americans  “The reported deaths of three Americans in Matamoros, like the recent developments in Guerrero, continues to highlight why citizens of Mexico are wary of their own law enforcement officials," U.S. Rep. Matt Salmon (R-AZ), chairman of the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere, told Fox News Latino via email.“I will be monitoring this situation as it develops,” Salmon wrote, “and I trust our diplomats on the ground will now be engaged with the appropriate Mexican authorities to ensure the investigation is fair and impartial.”

·       Phx City Councilman Sal DiCiccio: Less than 24 hours after the pension reform election, city insiders have figured that it should be business as  usual.  Wednesday, with Mayor Stanton being the critical swing vote, the council passed a $1 million expenditure to hire a pollster to poll your feelings. This vote happened less than a day after the critical election that would have reformed our unsustainable pension expense. This council expenditure marked the biggest comeback in city history …. for City Insiders. Councilmembers, Jim Waring, Thelda Williams, Bill Gates and myself voted against this nonsense. Councilman Michael Nowakowski took a leadership position and asked to re-consider the expenditure. My question for you - are these your priorities?  :

o   Phoenix is short over 500 police for our neighborhoods

o   We expect to see another budget shortfall this year

o   Pension costs are going up over $18 million each year (yes, these are new expenses every year).

o   Phoenix told domestic violence victims we have no more to give.

Again, you have my commitment to roll up my sleeves and to continue to work to bring fiscal accountability to our great city. I will continue to show you were your money is going and whether it fits the priorities you believe we should be funding.

·       Congressman Matt Salmon: Earlier this year, I introduced H.R. 4897, the Transparency in Education Act, designed to prevent the Department of Education from issuing new rules addressing college funding without first studying the effect the rule would have on educational programs throughout the United States.  Unfortunately, the Administration issued a 945-page “gainful employment” rule, which measures the debt-to-income ratio of the student loan debt of graduates from for-profit institutions to continue eligibility of federal aid without assessing the effect it would have on students or programs. With my colleague from Florida, Rep. Alcee Hastings, I plan to continue fighting for access to education for all students.

 

·       Former Scottsdale School Board Candidate Laddie Shane: It has been an amazing year.. As results came in, I knew that I would not become a Scottsdale School Board member. This was hard for me to understand, but I have always been the type of person who takes on every challenge and looks to the future. God has a plan for me, and I look forward to what's in store. This past year was not about last Tuesday night: It was about me becoming stronger and learning from my community. Reflecting, I have made friends with many people I never thought I would. I had an uphill battle, and I'm proud of the work I did. I'm one lucky guy having so many new friends to work with and support me through life. I will always love Scottsdale Schools and I hope that I will be able to help the new board in any way I can. I want to see great things from our schools, and I know that when a board listens to the community and works with its teachers, this will happen. I will be around listening and being a voice for the community.  I just want to say thank you and that this is not the last time you will see me on the ballot. I have many years to serve my community in or out of public office. I will spend the next few years working in the community and continue to better public education. People like you are the reason I wake up every morning feeling lucky to live in a beautiful place with amazing friends and family. Thank you to my family, especially, who stood by me and helped every second along the way. I will see you around, I'm sure, and thank you again for making me one lucky Guy.

 

·       Sen Jeff  Flake: Those of us that champion limited government, individual liberty, and economic prosperity had a very good night on Tuesday. President Obama made it clear that his policies were on the ballot, and voters responded by soundly rejecting those policies.  Now that voters have entrusted Republicans with control of the Senate, it's incumbent on us to restore regular order. The so-called "world's greatest deliberative body" hasn't been very deliberative the last several years. Harry Reid essentially shut down the process, rarely allowing amendment votes or free-flowing debate - all in an attempt to shield his party from tough votes.  Given the dire fiscal shape of our government, it's impossible to put us back on the path to prosperity without tough votes. I'm glad that Republicans have pledged to return to a more open process.  After six years of shirking its duty to regulate the regulators, the Senate will have a lot of work to do reining in the Obama Administration. Agencies like the EPA have gone unchecked and rode roughshod over states like Arizona. While the failures of the Obama Administration and the electoral map worked in Republicans' favor, we couldn't have won without the hard work and support of volunteers and donors like you.

·       John McCain On Russia Providing Military Aid To Separatists In Ukraine  “No one should be surprised by reports today that large columns of Russian tanks, artillery, and military personnel have moved back into eastern Ukraine. If true, this would be the latest and most conclusive reason to believe that the ceasefire agreement is effectively dead.

 

·       The White House Announced Friday that President Barack Obama has authorized the deployment of up to 1,500 "additional U.S. military personnel in a non-combat role to train, advise, and assist Iraqi Security Forces, including Kurdish forces" against ISIS. The deployment will bring the total number of U.S. troops there to about 2,900.The White House said in a statement that it will also ask Congress for another $5.6 billion dollars to fund the fight against ISIS.

·       Sen John Mccain Recognized Approximately 150 Arizona-based Intel Corporation employees who have served or currently serve in the U.S. military at a Veterans Day event at the Intel campus in Chandler today.

 

·        Congressman Matt Salmon: On Tuesday, we celebrated many electoral victories across Arizona and our nation, and I was especially grateful to be reelected as your Congressman. Of course, I have many people to thank for making this happen - my family, my staff, my campaign team and my incredibly dedicated volunteers.I wanted to be sure to send a special thanks to you, a constituent and voter in the fifth congressional district of Arizona.I am deeply honored and humbled by the trust you have put in me to represent this great district for another two years.I know there is still a whole lot of work to be done in Washington, but I want you to know that I will continue to work tirelessly to meet with you, hear your concerns and represent your interests in Congress. Our children's future depends on the work we do today. I remain committed to ensuring that we have a more prosperous tomorrow to offer our future generations. Thank you again for your vote of confidence and support, and I look forwarding to seeing you around the district in the near future.

·       LD6 Rep Brenda Barton: Later this month, I have been asked to moderate a panel of experts on water, at the National Legislative Leaders Policy Conference.  The panel discussion will be "The Impact of Water Management, Infrastructure, and Regulation on States". The Conference is hosted by the State Government Association Foundation and attendees representing the legislative leadership of many statehouses across the country will be there. In January, I will be attending the State Agricultural Rural Leaders Conference (SARL) just before our own Session opens on the second Monday of the month.  This will be my third SARL conference since being in office, and the agenda is always full for the three day event. Topics this year include state water quality, food safety modernization, and farmland preservation. I will be most interested in the sessions on EPA regulations and rural development.Once again, I cannot thank you enough for all you’ve done to help me continue serving you in our statehouse!

 

·       Bill Gates Coffee Chat is scheduled between 8-9 am,  Tues., Nov 18 at Paradise Bakery, 375 E Bell Road, Phx, AZ 85022.  Coffee/pastries provided.  RSVP request for planning purposes to Council.District.3@phoenix.gov or call 602.262.7441.

·       Congressman Matt Salmon: I had a great time learning and talking with the students in the Gilbert Boys and Girls Club's Head Start program. I especially appreciated the chance to see the unique educational opportunities these students are being given.  The program has focused on STEM education and seeing the level of understanding these children have so early in their lives is truly worthwhile.

 

·       LD6 Rep Brenda Barton: Every decision we make has consequences, and Election 2014 is no different. The Republicans swept elections from coast to coast and with victory comes responsibility. There is a lot of work to be done during the next two years, nationally and here at home. On the brighter side, Republicans increased their majority in the Arizona Statehouse and the numbers now are 38 (R) to 22 (D) so the agenda is in our court.  We are positioned to put government back on your side, not in your way! There is a place for government, but in shouldn't be in your way. Government should be the lubricant of a vibrant economy, not its primary fuel. I have already rolled up my sleeves and begun preparing for the work ahead. In the Legislature, rural Arizona made big gains in the leadership. Both the new Speaker of the House, and the Senate Majority Whip are from Cochise County. I will continue my Chairmanship of Agriculture and Water, with a more expanded role going into 2015.
