The report, which CCAGW has issued since 1989, highlights the voting records of all 535 members of Congress.  It identifies members whose impeccable voting records helped protect and save the taxpayers’ money, earning them the honored title of “Taxpayer Super Hero,” while it cites members who consistently voted against the fiscal interest of taxpayers.

·       Gov Doug  Ducey Today Signed An Executive Order creating the Governor’s Council on Child Safety and Family Empowerment. The Council will coordinate faith-based and community resources for children and families within the child welfare system and offer additional support to families caring for foster and adopted children. It was established as part of the reorganization of the Governor’s Office of Youth, Faith and Family, which will oversee the administration of the Council.  “There are so many community and faith-based organizations looking for an outlet to better serve our families,” said GOYFF Director Debbie Moak. “This council will help us to align and leverage their efforts across Arizona, while carrying out this administration’s mission to help as many children as possible. I’m honored Governor Ducey has entrusted me to serve in this meaningful and important role.” 

First Lady Angela Ducey will serve as chair of the Council. “Whether as a parent or a public servant, there is no higher priority than the well-being of our children,” said Mrs. Ducey. “All Arizona kids deserve a safe and loving home, and we should do everything in our power to ensure they have that opportunity. This Council will be crucial to connecting community and faith-based organizations with families in-need.  I look forward to working with Debbie and the rest of the members to improve the lives of Arizona’s vulnerable.” The new Council on Child Safety and Family Empowerment will integrate the family and youth-focused work previously done by the Arizona Council on Faith and Community Partnerships.

 

·       The Republican National Committee announced the latest phase of nationwide hires as part of what will be the largest RNC field program in history. The RNC's field program has grown to over one hundred staff in key states and will eventually expand to thousands of paid staff across the country. The new hires will join staff that have been in key states and neighborhoods across the country since 2013, building relationships, attending community events, and registering voters. The RNC’s field program will place a premium on training, voter registration, and peer-to-peer contact to engage and activate diverse communities of voters to vote for our Republican nominee and the entire GOP ticket.  “The RNC is building the largest, earliest and most data focused field program in GOP history,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “This new wave of staff will help us train our team, register voters, and meet one-on-one with activists, to build our infrastructure now in order to hand our eventual nominee a fully functional ground operation on day one.”
