ü  It says that Arizona is a good investment.

ü  It says that Arizona is open for business.

ü  It says that Arizona is fiscally responsible.

ü  It says that Arizona is headed in the right direction.

ü  The budget decisions we made this year were tough, but your legislators and I weren't elected to do what is easy -- we were elected to do what is right and responsible for Arizona's future.

·       The Latest Voter Registration Figures have been released and according to Secretary of State Michele Reagan, Arizona has fallen to 3,235,690 registered voters, a decrease of 11,485 since the last report in January. 

Of the state's 3.2 million voters, 36% are Republicans, 28% are Democrats and 36% have either registered with independent parties or not designated a party preference.  

Libertarians and members of the Green party make up a little less than one percent of the state’s total registration while the Americans Elect Party has enrolled 459 voters since joining the state's other recognized political parties in 2011. 

“We often see a slight decrease in active voter registration during non-election years,” said Reagan.  “List maintenance during these periods can often outpace registration and this report indicates as much as we experienced increases in nearly half of the state’s 15 counties.  As the state gears up for an exciting presidential election next year, I’m confident our registration totals will see a significant increase.”

The latest voter registration figures compiled by county, congressional district and legislative district are available on the Secretary of State’s website, www.azsos.gov/VoterRegistrationCount or by calling 1-877-THE-VOTE.

COMMENTARY

·       Editor’s Note:  When expressing opinions, please limit commentary to 300 words.

 

·       Firearms Laws Authority Alan Korwin: In today's Arizona Republic editorial, "Baiting Didn't Justify Attack" (5/5/15), you attacked the American Freedom Defense Initiative for displaying art in Texas that Muslim fanatics worldwide want censored in America. Using vile derogatory language, you assailed these patriotic defenders of the First Amendment -- which you would like us to believe you are. Bowing to an unholy demand for censorship, and caving in to the risks that serious free expression represents, you wrote, "There are better ways to make the point" -- than AFDI's obviously dangerous display... of artworks. Oh yeah? Name it.  Prove you're not the sympathizing quislings you've inadvertently made yourselves out to be and publish a bunch of the 200 cartoons in the paper -- the good ones. Don't let planet Earth's greatest enemies tell the great Arizona Republic what to publish.
