·       Gov Doug Ducey Welcomes State Senator Begay To The Republican Party:  "I'm proud to welcome Senator Begay to the Republican Party.  Legislative District 7 is well served by Senator Begay’s commitment to individual liberty, fiscal responsibility and personal empowerment. His service to his constituents is unwavering, and I look forward to our continued work together."

 

·       MCRC Western PC Coordinator Aaron Gidwani: I am pleased the Republican Party received its newest member, Senator Carlyle Begay.  This is not only refreshing news it is needed.  We are fortunate to have elected a full slate of Republican statewide officeholders and need to continue to build upon this momentum for 2016 victory.  I extend a special welcome to Senator Begay and his family into our family.  Happy Thanksgiving and thank you for your public service Senator to our great state of Arizona!  - MCRC Western PC Coordinator. LD30 State Committeeman  Aaron Gidwani

 

·       The Town of Fountain Hills Thanksgiving Day Parade will include the Fountain Hills Republican Club entry and many politicians, elected officials and notable Republicans including but not limited to Congressman David Schweikert, State Senator John Kavanagh, State Representatives Michelle Ugenti-Rita and Jay Lawrence, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, FH Mayor Linda Kavanagh, AZ GOP Chair Robert Graham, Fountain Hills Republican Club President Dr. C.T. Wright and others.   The parade starts at El Lago and Saguaro at 9 a.m. Thursday, November 26 (Thanksgiving Day) and proceeds up Saguaro to Palisades thence to La Montana.  It lasts about 1 - 2 hours.  Everyone is welcome.

 

·       Scottsdale  Businessman and former US Congressman Frank Riggs: I'm wondering if anyone had the fortitude to raise the continuing failure of the federal government to secure the Arizona (U.S.) - Mexico border at today's field hearing of the U.S. Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee at the State Capitol.  The failure to secure the border, or in Sen. McCain's infamous words, "Complete the Dang Fence," had to be the elephant in the room!  That failure has put our state and country at-risk.  It's impossible to reconcile Sen. McCain's commitment to "Complete the Dang fence" with his expressed concern in his opening statement that "In recent months, we've seen Special Interest Aliens from Afghanistan, Pakistan and other countries pay Mexican nationals to smuggle them into the United States. "Special Interest Aliens" has to be government-speak for illegal aliens from countries known to harbor Islamic Terrorists.  Have we forgotten that Osama bin Laden conducted Al-Qaeda operations from Afghanistan and hid out in Pakistan?!  I commend Gov. Ducey's efforts to combat border crime by creating a strike force within DPS and devoting more resources to border county sheriff departments, but there is much more to be done to guard against drug and human smuggling, and possible infiltration by terrorists, including a barrier the length of our southern border.  I say this not only as a former military police investigator (and original member of the U.S. Army Drug Strike Force), police officer and deputy sheriff (patrol, investigations and crime prevention), but also as a former U.S. Congressman who helped secure the funding for the double fence on California's border with Mexico.

 

·       LD 23 State Rep Jay Lawrence will be riding atop a convertible drive by his wife Judy in Fountain Hills Thanksgiving Day Parade.  She was country star Lynn Anderson's drummer and traveled with Anderson band for years.

 

·       LD17 will meet at 7 pm, Tues., Nov 24 at the Tri-City Baptist Church Seminary Building (smaller building on south side of parking lot), 2211 W. Germann Road, Chandler, AZ 85286 to hear Concerned Veterans for America Arizona State Director Matt Dobson address veterans issues. Contact: Chairman Dr Shadow Agar LD17shadow@gmail.com

 

·       Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich today filed paperwork with the secretary of state to place Sen. Marco Rubio on the Republican ballot for the Presidential Preference Election, March 22, 2016. Candidates have until December 14 to file. “I am excited to see so much diversity represented on the Republican ballot this year,” said Secretary of State Michele Reagan. “No matter which side of the aisle voters are on; hopefully, Arizonans will find a candidate who resonates with them and come out to vote.” Candidates who have filed for the PPE, listed in the order they filed with the SOS, include:

ü  Jeb Bush (R)

ü  Ted Cruz (R)

ü  Ben Carson (R)

ü  Hilary Clinton (D)

ü  Marco Rubio (R)

Candidates may participate in Arizona’s PPE in several ways: Submit 500 petition signatures, or official documentation from at least two other states proving they qualified for the ballot in that state. The list of candidates for the PPE is updated online as candidates file at www.azsos.gov, under the elections section.

For those not affiliated with a recognized political party, “independent” candidates will submit nomination paperwork, petitions and other required documents at a later date, as specified within the Running for President in Arizona candidate guide provided by the Secretary of State’s office.

Arizona’s “open primary” provisions do not apply to the presidential preference election. In order to cast a ballot in the March 22nd election, a voter must be registered with a political party by February 22, 2016.  Voters can update their registration easily at www.servicearizona.com or Arizona.Vote.

 

·       Arizona's Employment Level has almost equaled its pre-recession high with healthy job growth in October that cut the state's unemployment rate by half a percent, according to the Arizona Department of Administration. More than 60,300 jobs were added in October 2015 over last year, with an increase of 33,800 over September. The increase was greater than the post-recession average of 23,900 jobs month-over-month. The new hires dropped the unemployment rate to 6.1 percent from 6.6 percent last October. Statewide, there were 2.67 million in the workforce, just 20,000 short of the pre-recession peak employment. full article here.

·       Sheron Jones, Chapter President Of The Gold Star Mothers in Tucson is asking for donations to place wreaths on the graves of all veterans on at 10 am, Dec 12 at the Evergreen Cemetery on Oracle Road,  3015 N. Oracle Rd. Wreaths are $15 each.  Sen Kelli Ward will be the Ceremony speaker . Contact: sheronjones29@yahoo.com or 520-390-1704.

 

·       The Republican National Committee (RNC) released a new web video entitled ‘Can Leaders Like These Keep Us Safe?' highlighting the Democrats’ fundamental inability to understand the threat of ISIS. “The foreign policy of Barack Obama’s White House and Hillary Clinton’s State Department was unable to adapt as ISIS rose to power in Syria and Iraq,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. "Now, in the wake of deadly attacks across the world claimed by ISIS and other radical Islamic terrorist organizations, the Democrats continue to insist that they have the ‘right strategy’ in place. Secretary Kerry rationalizes, President Obama insists they are contained, and Hillary Clinton refuses to even call the threat by its real name. These are not the leaders America needs to protect our nation from the evils of radical Islamic terrorism. We need strength back in the Oval Office, and that’s why the American people will elect a Republican in 2016."

·       Forbes Magazine Has Named Arizona The Best State For Future Job Growth, but one local economic expert said the distinction does come with some caveats. The magazine in October used forecasts from Moody’s Analytics to call Arizona one of the “brighter spots in a slumbering U.S. economy thanks in part to renewed migration.” The Moody’s report projected a job growth rate of 3.1 percent through 2019. As the U.S. economy slowly recovers from the Great Recession, experts said Arizona has become a landing spot for expanding businesses because of its skilled workforce, available real estate and diversified economy.  Read the full article here.
