· The LD 30 Special Meeting will be held at 7 pm., Mon., Sept 28. Doors open for credentialing at 6 pm. Only credentialed persons will be admitted into the meeting. All calls concerning this meeting are to be directed to Republican Party of Maricopa County at 480. 264.5266. Do NOT call the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1433. Thank you for your consideration of our Honored Veterans, who we are Proud to Support. - April Riggins Executive Director, Republican Party of Maricopa County (MCRC)
· Republican Party of Maricopa County Chairman Tyler Bowyer finds himself between a rock and a hard spot over the continuing LD30 ‘Special Meeting’ saga. He has the pro-recall Chairman Gary Hirsch precinct committeemen, who gathered the recall petitions signatures, charging Bowyer has been dragging his heels since July 21 with repeated delays and excuses. The anti-recall groupies claim Bowyer promised them there would be no recall on Hirsch. While Bowyer says he has moved as fast as he can on this issue, former county officers chimed in scoffing Bowyer opt to run for the county chairmanship and needs to stop with the excuses and get the job done on various issues. After Bowyer appointed Executive Director April Riggins to take charge of the “Special meeting,” she whipped things into order and had a date and location established within a few days; the notification letters were dispatched 10 days prior to the meeting date. It seems he made a good call in her appointment.
· Adding to Bowyers Headaches, his First Vice Chair Jeni White took a swipe at him on Facebook several days ago. Bowyer zinged her back with “…Facebook drama is certainly not the professional forum for those issues unresolved.” He further reprimanded her to “communicate professionally like the other board members do” and requested she contact him before airing grievances on the social media.
· LD30 PC Gary Cox: (Republicans of Maricopa County) Chairman Tyler Bowyer holds the cards relative to whether or not he will allow recalls of Legislative District Executive Committee members, including chairmen of the districts. A recall of LD 30 Chairman Gary Hirsch has been scheduled for September 28th after Bowyer promised several LD 30 PC’s, MCRC Executive Members, and Hirsch himself that he would not allow a recall to take place. Timothy Schwartz, former LD 30 Chairman harassed Chairman Bowyer into allowing the recall that Bowyer promised would Not take place. Chairman Tyler Bowyer caved in and is now going to allow the recall. Prior to Mr. Hirsch’s election, LD 30 was out of regulatory compliance on several levels. Gary Hirsch is a leader who stands up for the rule of law as well as compliance with MCRC bylaws. The recall of Gary Hirsch is completely without cause. Tyler Bowyer is caving in and taking sides with Timothy Schwartz. - Gary Cox (PMDRX) email@example.com Editor’s Note: Bowyer claims he has followed the MCRC bylaws regarding the recall issue.

· Arizona Christian University President Len Munsil: It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since I helped found Center for Arizona Policy and its critical work to strengthen families in Arizona through public policy. I’m so excited to celebrate what God has done at Center for Arizona Policy at CAP’s 20-year anniversary on Tuesday, October 20th. When I look back at leading CAP in those first 10 years, I have many great memories:
1. The excitement the first time I saw the name “Center for Arizona Policy” in a newspaper story, or heard it on the radio!
2. Taking a full year to convince Cathi and Mike Herrod and our Board to allow Cathi to join me at CAP!
3. Getting our first bills signed into law when we had a constituency of just a few dozen supporters;
4. Writing the first few “Family Fax – Arizona” to our Board and about 10 donors, manually loading it into the fax machine, and watching it become “Family Facts – Arizona” and grow to reaching thousands via email;
5. Watching CAP go from being a start-up with zero influence to being considered – and criticized for – being the most powerful lobbying force in Arizona for the past decade.
In the 10 years since I left Center for Arizona Policy, CAP has gone from having an active hand in 43 new state laws to 136 total state laws. The team at CAP never stopped working to promote and defend life, family, and religious freedom – and their work continues to ensure that CAP is one of the most influential state-based public policy groups in the United States. October 20th CAP looks back at significant moments in the organization’s history, and looks forward to what God might have in store. Tracy and I are excited to be in attendance to celebrate, and I look forward to sharing some of my experiences from CAP’s first 10 years.
· The 10-Year Celebration Of The Center For Arizona Policy (CAP) is scheduled at 7:30 pm., Tues., Oct 20 at the Mesa Arts Center in the Ikeda Theater. 1 E Main St, Mesa, AZ 85201. Semiformal Attired.

· Governor Doug Ducey Will Light The Capitol Dome Purple as a symbol of Arizona’s dedication to ending domestic violence at an event outside the Capitol at 6 pm., Oct 1. The lighting is open to the public. “Domestic violence is a pervasive problem that affects 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men in Arizona, and stands in direct opposition to our No. 1 priority of protecting Arizona families and communities,” said Ducey. “This is an issue that affects all ages, races, religions, socioeconomic backgrounds and education levels. As Arizonans, we all have a responsibility to know the signs, to help the victimized and vulnerable and to speak out against it whenever we can. I encourage Arizonans to stand with me as we send the unwavering message that domestic violence can stop.”Arizonans can join in this effort by lighting their homes purple. The Home Depot is selling purple light bulbs at all Arizona store locations, with a portion of the proceeds going to support domestic violence prevention. Visit ItCanStop.AZ.gov
