Chairman A. J. LaFaro is asking for the past LD Chairmen to forward notification to the newly elected LD Chairmen and request that they send their contact information to LaFaro at aj_ml@hotmail.com  or Secretary Jeni White at townhall@principlesinaction.com so the roster can be updated. The EGC will not hold its regular monthly meeting in January due to credentials/tally training and packet stuffing for the Jan. 10 meeting scheduled at Grace Community Church.

·       Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett issued the official canvass of results for the 2014 General Election today.  Joined by Governor Jan Brewer, Attorney General Tom Horne and Chief Justice Scott Bales, Bennett certified the results of November’s General Election. Of Arizona’s 3,235,963 registered voters, 1,537,671 cast a ballot and more than 1.1 million votes came via an early ballot.  The number of provisional ballots issued totaled 65,900, a 61% decrease from 2012. Notably, the 131 vote difference between Congressman Ron Barber and candidate Martha McSally has triggered an automatic recount.  It is anticipated the process will take about two weeks.  More information will follow as it becomes available.

·       Governor Jan Brewer today received the initial report from her Council on Infectious Disease Preparedness and Response. Established by Executive Order on October 21, the Council was charged with reviewing the state’s current plans for managing infectious disease, and submitting to the governor findings and recommendations for improving preparedness and response should an incidence or outbreak occur in Arizona. “The Council’s report gives a good indication that Arizona is well prepared to deal with infectious disease,” said Governor Brewer.  “I commend the Council for working expeditiously on this important public health and safety matter. I will thoroughly consider the Council’s recommended improvements to ensure that our citizens are properly protected.” Among its findings, the report highlights the need for collaboration in our healthcare communities as well as a clear communication plan, both of which will help our state respond efficiently and effectively to Ebola or other infectious diseases that may arise. It also outlines steps to improve our system of care and cooperation among private, public and non-profit organizations.  The 20-member council features representatives from various state agencies, local health departments, hospitals, emergency medical services and physician organizations.  The diversity of the council helps ensure a comprehensive review of the state’s plan. The Council will continue to meet on an as-needed basis to ensure the health and safety of Arizona citizens. Council’s report here: http://1.usa.gov/1yaYzl7.

We're fighting against my liberal opponent, Ron Barber, who has hired President Obama's best lawyers to flip this race.  chip in now
