·        AzRA Chairman Thayer Vanschoor: Ballot harvesting has become a huge problem.  Having strangers harvesting ballots gives no assurance that ballots were secretly voted, properly inserted into envelopes, sealed, properly signed and never tampered with. Three Arizona Republican Assembly (AzRA) charter members have been working diligently on legislation that would put an end to ballot harvesting before the 2016 elections.

In mid-2012, AzRA member, Lynne Breyer, introduced Senator Michele Reagan to what a problem this is.  Reagan subsequently ran S1003 in the 2013 session to stop this practice.  That bill got combined with other bills and none of them passed.  Reagan, now Secretary of State, still believes this is a problem that must be properly addressed.

This year, AzRA member, Sparky Smith, got involved.  Breyer and Smith have been working with the Secretary of State's office to modify existing Title 16 language in order to maintain the integrity of the vote, making sure that all those who request early ballots get them, vote them and can be certain that, if they give them to someone to take to the polls, that the ballot actually gets there, unopened, intact and deposited in the right box.  Further, Smith has engaged with some legislators interested in making appropriate changes to legislative language to assure fair and free elections for every registered voter, every time.

Former MCRC Chairman and AzRA National Director, AJ LaFaro, has taken this message to groups across the state of Arizona to be sure people are informed about ballot harvesting and how it has the ability to change the outcome of elections. Reception to LaFaro's presentation has been so robust that he is in high demand.  LaFaro’s responsible for many newspaper articles and other media coverage across the state highlighting this problem. Arizona deserves the best election process we can get. AzRA is at the forefront of making this happen.

·       Tempe Republican Women need some muscle to help at 5:30 pm, Thurs., Oct 15 at 5:30, Fri, Oct 16 from 7 am-2p, and Oct. Oct 17 7am until noon, to help set and dismantle in conjunction with the garage sale fundraiser.

·       LD22 PC Corky Haynes: As a teacher (recently retired), I wholeheartedly feel that the quality of a child's education is directly dependent on the quality of the teacher in the classroom.  It doesn't matter if the school is public, private or a charter school.  It's the teacher that makes the difference.  I am very concerned that talented people are leaving the profession and many districts are having a difficult time filling positions.  For that reason I volunteered to be a part of the Peoria Citizens' Bond/Override Advisory Committee.

Throughout the whole process, I advocated that if the committee recommended an override, the money be dedicated to attracting and retaining the best teachers.  Although I am not for raising taxes, I would reluctantly agree to a 13% override if that extra percentage went directly to teacher salaries.  I was told it would amount to approximately $2000 a year per teacher.  I was disappointed when the committee decided to include all-day kindergarten which significantly reduced the amount of money going to teachers.

The committee recommended to the Peoria School Board to continue the existing 10% override with consideration of an increase to 13% with the additional 3% to be used to retain and attract qualified teachers and staff, and implement all-day kindergarten.  I addressed the board before the vote that since very little money would be going to the teachers/classroom, I suggested they not vote to increase the override.

I have no problem with all-day kindergarten if our district was flush with money, but we are not.  Those parents who wish their children to be in all-day kindergarten have the option to pay for it.  My daughter chose that option for her youngest son.  She shares the same concerns I have that if we are going to raise our taxes, it should be with the intent to support and/or hire the best teachers not to add all-day kindergarten.

My property taxes increased $300 from 2014 to 2015.  If you live in the City of Peoria, I have been told that the budget is up 9.2%, a possible 2.5% raise in utility rates and a raise in the primary property tax.  A 30% increase in the existing Peoria Unified School District override is a little more than "giving up 2 Starbucks a month for the children"!

·        LD 22 Secretary Van DiCarlo:  We were fortunate enough to be addressed by the CFO of the Peoria Unified School District at our last meeting in which he explained how the school district approaches finances and how the district documents revenues and expenses.   Here is the link to a copy of the slide presentation that he used during the meeting.

·        Congresswoman Martha McSally on the Senate’s passage of the Fiscal Year 2016 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) conference report.  “I applaud our senators for prioritizing our national security and their strong bipartisan support for passing this bill,” said McSally. “The President needs to give up his political grandstanding and sign it immediately. His unprecedented veto threat over political differences, not substance, is disgraceful and would put our military readiness and the security of Americans at risk. With the growing threats we face around the world, we need to show unity behind our military, not play political games with national security.”  The Senate today passed the NDAA conference report 70 to 27, which also passed the House last week 270 to 156. The legislation includes full funding for the missions housed at Fort Huachuca and the A-10 Warthog and EC-130H Compass Call aircraft as well as amendments Rep. McSally authored to prohibit retirement or transfers to backup status of either aircraft next year.

·       Ray Malnar, Candidate Glendale City Council, Sahuaro District:  Early Ballots began going out in the Sahuaro District yesterday.  At the same time, messages continue to be distributed which do not address the issues but rather attack me personally. I want to continue to stay truthful and honorable. In this, the eleventh hour of the election cycle, I am asking that you help share the facts about my experience, ethics and position on key issues with people you know, especially those who live in the Sahuaro District.   Personal contact to someone you know will have more impact than $10’s thousands of advertising.

Here’s a link to the website which will clarify who I am, what I stand for and why we are in this Recall Election.   Please send this link out to everyone you know who might have a connection in Glendale.  If the Link does not work type  in your web browser. I am building an ” I support Ray Malnar for Glendale City Council Page” on my Web site and for public distribution.    Please respond to this with a yes I support you,  if you are will to allow me to add your name to my list. – Candidate Ray Malnar  623-869-1160


·       US Senatorial Candidate Dr. Kelli Ward: Last month I told you about how crucial your contributions leading up to the quarterly fundraising deadline on September 30 would be for sending a message that we are in this race to win. We’re still tallying up the final numbers, but it looks right now like our total amount raised for the first quarter of the campaign will be over $525,000.  This is a thrilling result! Just as exciting, this total came from 2,175 individual contributors with an average donation amount of $163. Why is that exciting? Because it means that we’re building this movement from the grassroots, on a foundation of support from individual patriotic Americans. Thank You to everyone who chipped in to make this possible. What we’ve accomplished together these past three months is nothing short of amazing. We have proven that this campaign is for real. The movement we are building is too big for anyone to ignore - including John McCain. Now that he can’t deny this is a serious campaign, he’s going to go on the attack, just as I predicted. But I’m not intimidated; I got into this race knowing it was going to be a hard fight, and with this great show of support from all of you I’m feeling more confident than ever.  gear up for the fight


·       US Senate candidate Clair Van Steenwyk: Americas' Trojan Horse Compliments of Obama’s Evil. Please ask yourselves, is this why Obama is so set along with others in his administration to bringing Middle East so called Syrian Refugees into America, or is this just one more part of his master plan of fundamentally transforming America? We had better Wake Up while we still can and tell those in DC no more Illegals or any Refugees allowed until and unless we know who every one of them is. Take a look at what's going on in Europe at the camps right now as they've attacked workers, families don't feel safe in their own towns, funny what type of Invasion is this? I believe it's up to those in DC to protect American from this new Invasion of so called Refugees, which many might be nothing more than Terrorists to attack us and cause more Terror in America than 9/11 did.  The time for the Political Correctness practiced by those in DC is over it's now time for some Political Courage and if they're not equipped for the job then let them all resign and allow us to take their place.  I hope all of you will contact those in DC who are presently in office and tell them how you want this handled and hopefully they'll not only get the order but follow it. Please remember to deal with the open border and illegal alien invasion as former President Eisenhower called it in the 50's as well, we don't have Security as long as anyone can just walk in Our Country anymore than you would if someone could just walk in your Home.

·       Sen Sylvia Tenney Allen: Keep Sedona Beautiful has been using the Transfer of Public Lands movement as a reason for promoting the Sedona Verde Valley Red Rock National Monument.  The perception that transferring public lands to the state would encourage the sell-off of our open spaces to developers is wrong.  That perception is not being promoted by those who are involved with this movement. See -   the Public Policy Statement ratified by unanimous consent on October 9, 2014, at the American Lands Council multi-state workshop. American Lands Council has been a leader in the Transfer of Public Lands movement. 

The policy statement lays out clearly the motives and desires of those who want to fulfill the contract the Federal Government made with the state of Arizona on Statehood Day, February 14, 1912.  Section 4(iv) of the policy statement says:  “Retain Public Ownership of Public Lands: Federal public lands shall become state public lands to be managed in accordance with state and local plans;”

Western states are step-children to the United States.  We have never been given full statehood. We are part of “empire building” instead of being a part of building the USA.  The Transfer of Public Lands movement is not about selling off all the public lands and putting them in the hands of developers.  This movement is about protecting and using our lands with the same kind of local and state control that other eastern and Midwestern states enjoy. 

North Dakota, one of the most rural states in the nation, has a booming economy growing at five times the national average, 2.8% unemployment, a state budget surplus of over $1 billion, and a steady demand for new workers?  North Dakota manages 90% of their state!

The terms of statehood in the Enabling Act relating to the disposal of federal title to public lands in Arizona are the same as the terms of statehood for the disposal of federal title to public lands in North Dakota. The Federal government honored its obligation to transfer title of the public lands for local stewardship to North Dakota but not to Arizona.

The Federal government loses 27 cents for every dollar it spends on land management.  The State of Arizona makes $6 an acre off of our state lands.  As a state, we cannot fund our schools or build or repair our roads due to the fact that the majority of our land is under Federal management. Please work to stop the designation of more Arizona land as new federal monuments, thereby adding more regulations and giving up local control.
