·       LD22 PC Daniel Stefanski:  In reading the MCRC Briefs, I've been surprised that Lori Urban, a longtime party activist, would say things about AZGOP chairman Robert Graham without checking her facts. For (one) example: "Common Core and Obamacare became the law in Arizona with not a word from the Chairman, despite your objections."  If I remember correctly, Common Core was brought to AZ in 2010 when Randy Pullen was AZGOP chairman, and Medicaid Expansion was introduced when Tom Morrissey was AZGOP chairman. Though he was not chairman at the time, Robert came out in opposition to the Governor's actions at the time Medicaid Expansion was passed. Here is part of Robert's press release at the time: "...I have been a long-time opponent to Obamacare.  I believe that not only is the program unacceptable public policy, but it is also unconstitutional. However, (Governor Brewer's) announcement last week to pursue a large expansion of government healthcare within the state’s Medicaid program raises many unanswered questions. Conservative policy makers and fiscal organizations such as the Goldwater Institute have raised concerns about our state being able to afford these unfunded mandates in the very near future. When the Supreme Court ruled on Obamacare last June, it gave states the right to decline the largest ever expansion of the nearly 50-year old program.  The issue here is one of fiscal responsibility: can the federal government afford this?  Can Arizona really afford this? I urge the governor to continue her proven track record of standing up for states rights and the principles of a limited and fiscally responsible government.” - Robert Graham.   I call on Lori Urban to retract her statements about our AZGOP chairman Robert Graham. - Daniel Stefanski

·       Maricopa County Republican Committee Chairman Candidate Tom Morrissey “The AZ GOP was not in debt when I left office.  As with all new chairmen, I inherited debt and retired it during my term and when I left office all debt on the books was paid in full, as substantiated in the official financial reports.”  Morrissey also notes that current AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham is taking credit for accomplishments that – for the most part -  occurred during Morrissey’s term i.e. repainting the office, restoring the floor, purchasing new furniture, and restoration of the air conditioning and IT system. “I'm sure that Robert has several accomplishments he can point to with pride, instead of going with what he claims as his achievements,” Morrissey said.  Morrissey was the AZGOP Chairman prior to Graham.


·       AZGOP Chairman Candidate Lori Urban: As YOUR AZGOP Chairman I will listen to your voice every day, not just at election time.  On Day One -

ü  I will start working to close our primaries as you demanded and start rebuilding our Arizona Republican Party.  

ü  I will develop a program to fill our vacant PC seats to get our party to full strength for 2016. 

ü  I will welcome back PCs and volunteers into the headquarters and encourage all Republicans to participate. 

ü  I will raise the money needed and be much more successful in getting out the vote in 2016.

      My opponent and his "dark money good old boys" are trying to silence your voice and my voice - at any cost.  They have dug up a previously proven false, 10 year old AZ Republic article, planted by my disgruntled ex-husband.    I have addressed that on the "Response" tab on my website:

           Let me tell you more about who I am.

ü  I am a mother of 3 wonderful boys.   My number one job, will always be to protect my children.

ü  I am a problem solver, having used those skills for many years working in the Republican Party, bringing calm out of chaos.

ü  I am well connected to Republicans who want to come back to the Republican Party as participants and donors.

ü  I am solution oriented with a focus on fair treatment for all points of view.

ü  I am a tireless defender of the Republican Party Platform, the AZGOP Bylaws, the Constitutions of Arizona and the United States of America.

ü  I am a compassionate listener.

ü  I am a fierce defender of liberty.

ü  I am respectful of, and grateful for, the heart of our Party - the hard working precinct committeemen.

ü  I am your next AZGOP Chairman.
