· MCRC Chairman A J LaFaro is encouraging students/teens to volunteer for the non-partisan Student Teen Election Poll Works Understanding the Power ( STEP UP) program that was recently created by the Maricopa County Elections Office for young adults. STEP UP is a non-partisan and provides an opportunity for young adults to learn more about the election process (and get paid doing it).

· The Deadline For To Register For The General Election Is Oct. 6. Early voting begins Oct. 9. Register online here.
· The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office Posse volunteered 22,115 hours to Pinal County, according to Sheriff Paul Babeu. These hours totaled a savings of $995,175 dollars to the County. So far this year (2014) they have donated 12,858 hours with a savings of $578,610 dollars to Pinal County. The Posse is a self-sustaining volunteer unit consisting of forty men and women.
· AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham has appointed Parralee Schneider as the AZGOP First Vice Chairman - a position vacated by the resignation of former First VC Russell Pearce. Graham appointed Jeni White to fill the Second Vice Chairman position – opened as Schneider moves to the First VC position. Schneider is a long-time party activist. White is the current Maricopa County Republican Committee’s Secretary . “Both Parralee and Jeni have an extraordinary amount of talent, experience, dedication to our cause — and they are both held in high regard by a great many of our longstanding Republican grassroots leaders. With a strong party leadership team supporting our Republican nominees, we are fighting for victory in November and are excited about our prospects for success," said Graham. The AZGOP Executive Committee must approve the appointments. A teleconference call is scheduled for Sept 26th. The appointees will serve until the January 2015 meeting of the state committeemen, when an election will be held to fill the remainder of the two-year terms of the offices, both of which expire in January of 2016.
· For All The Uproar Over a Piece Read by Russell Pearce On His Radio Show– if anyone had taken the time to check out the ‘Put me in Charge of Welfare’ piece, they would have found that it has been floating around the Internet for nearly two years supposedly written by a 21 year old woman. However, fact-check-rant-welfare-abuse-hits-home-internet-admirers says it was actually written by a man named Alfred W. Evans and was published as a ‘letter to the editor’ in the Nov 18, 2010 edition of the Waco Tribune Herald. Evans, a 56-year-old resident of Gatesville, Texas, wrote the letter to the editor hoping to get others incensed about welfare abuse. Fact Checks says, “What he (Evans) didn’t expect, according to an interview with him in the Tribune Herald in November 2012, was that the letter would be emailed across the country and become an Internet phenomenon.” Whether you agree or disagree with what Evans wrote and Pearce read, the First Amendment assures them the right to express their thoughts.
· The U.S. House Of Representatives approved President Barack Obama's request to arm and train Syrian rebels to fight ISIS. The vote was 273-156, with significant opposition in both parties. A Senate vote on the proposal could come as early as Thursday.

Today, Pinal County Adult Detention minimum security inmates are working under the supervision of detention staff and are filling sand bags at the San Tan Valley Public Works (3535 North East Hunt Highway). Sheriff Paul Babeu stated, “Every week our minimum security inmates work details for the betterment of county roads and facilities throughout Pinal County. The inmates are constantly cleaning up trash and overgrown vegetation from county roadways and property. In the past they have helped load and unload food for the homeless at shelters and food banks. This week I have asked our detention staff to assign the inmates to help our residents prepare for the upcoming rains. The inmates work is helping to keep Pinal County residents safer and our roadways and facilities cleaner.”
· LD15 Rep Heather Carter received the American Cancer Society with its 2014 National Distinguished Advocacy Award Wed, Sept. 17 in Washington, D.C. The annual award recognizes leaders in the fight against cancer. In particular, the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) sought to acknowledge Rep. Carter’s work on access to care issues like parity for oral chemotherapy and expanding health coverage under the Arizona Medicaid program. “I chose this fight not only because it is one I believe we can win…but also because my constituents, my friends, and my family have all battled cancer,” said Carter, , in a pre-recorded acceptance speech she delivered to the reception in D.C. “The task at hand is to beat cancer and to provide patients with the most effective means to do so,” said Rep. Carter. “Overarching all of our efforts…I believe…should be the desire to find solutions that work regardless of where they come from.” The National Distinguished Advocacy Award is the highest national advocacy honor bestowed upon state and federal lawmakers by ACS CAN, said the organization’s Chair of the Board Christy A. Russell in press release.

· Congressman Trent Franks Responds To Left Wing Media Attacks on his statement regarding the possibility of ISIS on our southern border. “The statement in question was not recorded this past weekend and, to my knowledge, Bishop E.W. Jackson does not have a radio program. In the clip, I was responding to a widely cited report that had surfaced online and had been brought to my attention by staff. Homeland Security officials ultimately expressed that those reports were overstated and my subsequent comments reflected the briefings I received. I remain concerned about the prospect of a terrorist group like ISIS taking advantage of our porous southern border. As recently as last Wednesday, in testimony before the Senate Homeland Security Committee, DHS Undersecretary for Intelligence and Analysis Francis Taylor confirmed the existence of social media exchanges amongst ISIS’ adherents discussing the possibility of exploiting America’s southern border as a means of entering and attacking the United States. Though we do not know concretely what steps ISIS has already taken to fulfill these ends, we know that the glaring national security vulnerability that is our southern border is not a secret to our enemies. As I expressed in recent interviews, if thousands of unaccompanied minors can find their way across, certainly a highly trained terrorist could do the same. We ignore the threat at our own peril.”
· Congressman Trent Franks, Chair Of The House Judiciary Committee’s Constitution Subcommittee, released the following statement in recognition of Constitution Day:“On this Constitution Day, our nation finds itself consumed with a discussion of how we will confront an enemy that stands in stark contrast to every principle we hold dear. May the debate serve as a reminder of why the United States Constitution has, for 226 years, endured as such a unique and shining beacon to the rest of the world. The very process of drafting the Constitution was spectacular evidence of the truths the document itself would come to enshrine. Far from being a monolithic, single-minded entity – the Founding Fathers nonetheless managing to find common ground in the name of this unprecedented experiment in human liberty. James Madison would later remark, ‘The real wonder is that so many difficulties should have been surmounted, and surmounted with a unanimity almost as unprecedented as it must have been unexpected. It is impossible for any man of candor to reflect on this circumstance without partaking of the astonishment. It is impossible for the man of pious reflection not to perceive in it a finger of that Almighty hand which has been so frequently and signally extended to our relief in the critical stages of the revolution.’ Based on the fundamental recognition that rights came not from the hand of some transient tyrant, but from the hand of God, the Constitution shook the foundations of human history and continues to do so today. Today, may those of us who have ‘solemnly sworn to support and defend the Constitution’ reflect on what a high and weighty calling that truly is. For ‘miracles do not cluster and what has happened once in 6,000 years, may not happen again.’”

WHAT CANDIDATES ARE SAYING:
· CD9 Candidate Wendy Rogers: We’re just 13 short days away from the final end-of-quarter fundraising deadline before the November elections. Our campaign to defeat Kyrsten Sinema will be judged on our ability to bring in new donors and donations over these final days. We need to be consistent, and as it stands we’re just $9,245 away from our end-of-quarter online goal. Will you chip in $50, $100, $250, $500, or more to help us surpass that mark today? Kyrsten Sinema’s campaign is faltering...and it’s not surprising. She’s finally being forced to answer the tough questions as to why she’s blindly supported President Obama’s failed agenda. She’s put her own liberal agenda ahead of her constituents, and it’s completely unacceptable. We don’t need a cheerleader for the Obama agenda, we need a leader -- and I’m ready to serve. To have that opportunity, we must finish strong. A donation of $50, $100, $250, $500, or more will go a long way toward showing voters across the District that we have the resources, and the broad support to retire Kyrsten Sinema in November. Let’s get to work!
· CD9 Candidate Wendy Rogers: Rogers Calls on Sinema to Keep Her Promise - Asks Her To Return Salary For Not Doing Her Job. In a desperate attempt to whitewash her Washington record, Krysten Sinema began airing an ad today that tried to gloss over her failings in Washington. In her ad, Sinema said Congress should not get paid if it doesn't do its job . . . something that found immediate support from candidate Wendy Rogers.“I agree, I look forward to Kyrsten Sinema returning her salary to taxpayers for the past two years,” said Wendy Rogers. “Given that she has not voted for a single budget or offered a solution of her own - it's pretty clear she’s not doing her job. She should live up to her promise to return her pay.” Sinema voted against the House Budget H. Con. Res. 96 on April 10th, 2014. She also voted against the Democratic Budget Alternative on the same day. A check of House sponsored bills also shows that she has never offered a budget of her own. Sinema also voted against a balanced budget that would have prevented Members of Congress from using taxpayer dollars to fly first class (Roll Call #88; 3/20/2013). “The only budget matter she seems to have an opinion on is keeping her First-Class-only ticket on flights to Washington,” said Rogers. “I’m interested in getting our budget back in balance and returning our country to a solid footing. As a small business owner, I understand how to make budgets balance.”Sinema’s ad also tried to gloss over the fact that she has supported Nancy Pelosi on 82% of recorded votes since going to Washington. (Washington Post, U.S. Congress Votes Database)“Its time for real leadership that will put Arizona first,” said Rogers. “Pelosi and Obama have enough cheerleaders; we need someone who will work to solve problems.”
· LD28 House Candidate Shawnna Bolick: In classic guilt-by-association fashion, Rep. Eric Meyer (D-LD28) called on Republican nominee, Shawnna Bolick, to disavow former Sen. Russell Pearce’s controversial comments relating to sterilization of welfare recipients. "Of course I disavow the comments. The idea is barbaric," said Bolick, an education advocate and mother of two school-aged children who won the Republican nomination to unseat Meyer. "Eric is the big government advocate, not me. The real issue in this race is Eric Meyer’s obstructionist actions," Bolick continued, "For example, Eric Meyer needs to explain why he voted against sending the Right to Try referendum to Arizona voters." Right to Try will appear on the November ballot as Prop. 303. It will allow terminally ill patients the right to access potentially life-saving drugs that have passed the safety phase of the FDA approval process. Right to Try was unanimously enacted this year in Missouri, Colorado and Louisiana, and signed into law by two Democratic governors and one Republican. It also passed in Arizona. Eric Meyer voted no! Why would Eric Meyer block anyone from receiving potentially life-saving treatment? Meyer is the only physician-legislator in the entire country so far to oppose Right to Try. Bolick strongly supports Right to Try. "Meyer would not even give Arizonans the opportunity to vote for life-saving medication," Bolick said. "Every terminally ill person should have the right to try to save or extend their lives." Bolick has lived in Legislative District 28 for 13 years. Shawnna and her husband, Clint, have two children, Ryne (12) and Kali (9), plus their six year old rescued greyhound, Beary Goldwater.
· CD9 Candidate Wendy Rogers: I'm pleased to announce that on Wednesday, September 24th, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy will be headlining a fundraising luncheon in Phoenix, AZ that will benefit my campaign for U.S. Congress, Andy Tobin and Martha McSally for U.S. Congress. It is an honor to have his support.
I look forward to spending some time with you and discussing the important issues facing our nation. I invite you to join us on the 24th for this special event. Tickets to attend the lunch are $500 per person. Lunch plus a photo is $5,200 per person. For more information or to RSVP, please contact Michelle at email@example.com or Jessica at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see you next week!
