·       Sen John McCain conducted another one of his “employee town halls” (open to employees only) yesterday with Southwest Airlines employees in Phoenix.


·       Eyes Are Rolling At Sen John McCain’s term “employee town hall” while he attempts to get every ounce of ink or air time he can as his re-election bid appears to be in a downward spiral.  Most people consider a “town hall” an open meeting where the public (i.e. taxpayers, residents) can ask questions and give input.  An “employee town hall meeting” consists of a captive audience, who aren’t likely to challenge a political official – when employee careers could be at stake with their supervisors or peers in attendance. 


·       Webster References “Town Hall” as a building when public business is conducted.


·       Wikipedia Encyclopedia Defines “Town Hall Meeting”:  A town hall meeting is an American term given to an informal public meeting, function, or event derived from the traditional town meetings of New England. Typically open to everybody in a town community and held at the local municipal building, attendees generally present ideas, voice their opinions, ask questions of the public figures, elected officials, or political candidates at the town hall.


·       The Arizona Senatorial Election is over a year away, but it hasn’t gone unnoticed that Sen John McCain’s public relations staff is cranking out daily press releases trying to improve the censured senator’s image while his poll rating continue to plummet.  It’s quite a change from the ways things were before McCain was censured by the Arizona Republican Party, the Maricopa County Republicans, along with a bunch of grassroots precinct committeemen in outlying counties in January 2014.


·       John McCain joins Mesa Mayor John Giles and Mesa Councilmen Chris Glover and Kevin Thompson in holding hold a 2 pm., press conference (today) Wed., Sept 2 on Mesa’s initiative to end veteran homelessness at Mesa City Plaza, 20 E Main St #170. A campaign photo op???

·       Tuesday afternoon (Sept 1)  AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham brushed off the announcement from two voters in the Democratic Party that they would attempt to gather signatures to recall Diane Douglas, the Republican who was elected last year to serve as Arizona’s Superintendent of Public Instruction. “It looks like these young Democrats are following the lead of their party elders and wasting time and money on useless complaining about the outcome of the election in which the Republicans clearly dominated the opposition,” said Graham. “We have frequent elections at every level of government in this nation for a reason, and as a party we fight hard on behalf of our platform and our candidates. It’s disrespectful to the voters for these Democrats to suddenly wake up and decide they know better than voters.”

Douglas received 740,000 votes in the 2014 election, which was more than enough votes to defeat her opponent for that office. Her vote total also exceeded the vote total for each and every one of the Democrats on the ballot running for statewide office: Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of State, Mine Inspector, and Corporation Commission.

“Their plan is to raise and spend at least a million dollars to get enough signatures before the end of the year and they haven’t raised a dime yet, so I think they’re going to have a very disappointing Christmas,” Graham added.


·       Former Godaddy General Counsel And Executive Vice President Christine Jones talks about the future of technology jobs under the FCC's net neutrality rules. "Here's what you should know: if we don't deregulate and continue to keep internet free, it is going to stop technology advancement. Liberals will have you believe the opposite - that we must regulate it so that it can continue to grow. NOTHING could be further from the truth."   message here.
