Monday – Oct 5, 2015
· Arizona Republican Assembly (AzRA) Has Announced Its “Strong Opposition” to the election of Kevin McCarthy as the Speaker of the US House of Representatives as a replacement for recently resigned Speaker John Boehner, according to AzRA President Thayer Verschoor. “There are several candidates that represent the values of the Republican Platform and the U.S Constitution and will preserve and protect those perpetuate those values,” he said noting the Republican delegation were scheduled to Thurs, Oct 8 to pick a new speaker. (Editor’s Note) The Washington Post reported this afternoon that Boehner has changed the replacement election to Oct. 29.
AzRA is urging Arizona delegation members Dr Paul Gosar, Matt Salmon, Trent Franks and David Schweikert, who are members of The Freedom Caucus, to support candidates Daniel Webster or Jason Chaffetz. “We urge them to ‘change business as usual’ by not supporting McCarthy. It would be a slap in the face to Constitutional Conservative Republicans for McCarthy to be elected. McCarthy has destroyed the credibility of the Benghazi hearings and should resign as the current majority leader,” said Verschoor. He pointed out that McCarthy is a ‘younger version of Boehner, is pro-amnesty and has ties to Obama pal and pet corporate welfare recipient Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors and Space Z, who gets a ton of government and handouts.”
· Attention Taxpayers Facing School District Overrides. While you are getting barraged with “pass an override” literature as you get ready to mark your early ballots for the Nov 3 school override/bond elections, you probably aren’t aware that the Arizona Republican Asssembly (AzRA) has a presentation on “Truth in (School) Finance” that also exposes indiscretions within school district’s budgets. If you want to learn the flip side of the override/bond election issue or why your proposed override should not be supported, contact AzRA Chair Thayer Verschoor and First Vice Chairman Phil Mason email@example.com to arrange for a presentation to your groups.
· Those In The Dysart School District Override area might be interested in the NWValley AzRA Chairman Lyle Tuttle’s presentation that includes information that the Dysart administration and the State Auditor are not singing out of the same hymn book when it comes comes to communicating to the voters how much money is being spent in the classroom. In mid-August, Tuttle notified Dysart Supt of Schools Dr. Gail Pletnick and Michale Quinlan, CPA manager at the Office of the Auditor General Division of School Audits, of a discrepancy in the Dysart District report on classroom expenditures as referenced in SB1476/HB2683 Budget Bill:K-12 education;BRB;2015-2016, which determines how classroom spending is calculated. Tuttle has also notified the chamber of commerce and the school board chairman, but has received no response from the board or chamber.
Last week Tuttle said, “AzRA has researched the budget and knows where the money goes. Urging voters to vote “NO” on the Dysart Override does NOT mean AzRA does not value education; only that it values spending money wisely. We happen to think teachers are doing a great job, considering the pay they receive.
“Our investigation into Dysart School District Funding shows that if the district would maintain the same percentage level of money to the classroom as they spent in 2006, there would be enough money for the district to give every teacher a $10,000 raise and hire an additional 30 teachers with existing funds. Yet, their ‘bosses’ tell them that they have no money and demand more money from the property owners, the legislature and the Governor.” Contact Tuttle at 623-451-6928.

· Former two-term Maricopa County Republican Committee Chairman Rob Haney has sent a note to outgoing LD28 Chairman Vernon Parker that reads: “The MCRC Bylaws specifies an election will be conducted to fill the vacancy of a District Chairman. Have either you or Tom Haney read the MCRC Bylaws or have you just decided to ignore them much as Obama does with his executive orders?” following Parkers announcement that the LD28 Oct 13 meeting would be Parker’s last meeting as Chair and stating “First Chair Tom Haney, our first Vice Chair will take over as chair. Mr. Haney has served as Chair before.”
