LD23 PC Ronald A. Smith: I whole heartily agree with Boe James's argument that Dr. C.T. Wright deserves a position as State Committeemen. I therefore have submitted my resignation as an elected State committeeman from LD 23 and have requested that Dr. Wright be appointed in my place. "Tweek alert" While retired Naval Officers ponder a problem, former enlisted Marines adapt and overcome.

LD23 Credentials Chair Lynn Breyer: In life, there are two sides to every story. This is the side Boe James did not tell in his letter Saturday. I've run the credentials committee for the past three LD23 Chairmen. I run it by the book! And because of that position, I know many, if not most, of the PCs in LD23. Let me tell you, LD23 is afloat with wonderful, hardworking and dedicated Precinct Committeemen. Many of them hold down jobs, are invested in other organizations and give 100% to the position of Precinct Committeeman in LD23. They volunteer for whatever is needed in an engaged LD. Every one of those who submitted their names to become State Committeemen were well worthy of election. LD23 had 119 seats to fill. There were many more applicants than that. Some of the PCs are fairly new to the district. The people they voted for were likely those they have met at events/meetings or while working with LD23 to help candidates. It's normal and rational to vote for those you know and work beside. The 202 PCs present in person or by proxy voted the way they saw fit. I doubt any one of them voted against anyone, including Dr. Wright or Mark Lewis, both admirable men named by Boe James. These are busy men and don't get to all the events and so are unknown to many. It's unfortunate that everyone who submitted to run could not be elected. If LD23 made the rules, they would have been. But the rules were followed and 119 were fairly elected. I take exception to anyone who would engage in the shaming that has become so much a part of the political landscape. It's neither constructive nor serves any good purpose.

Submitted By Former AZGOP Chairman Tom Morrissey: The Obama Legacy, something we never expected…Something very interesting in the Wall St J. this morning. Something very positive about Obama, who has been obsessed with his legacy. The real Obama legacy he leaves behind is:

1.  A Republican President

2.  Republican Vice President

3.  Republican control of the Senate

4.  Republican control of the House

5.  Republican control of 31 state houses

6.  A majority of Republican governors  ~ 36 of 50

7.  Republican control of a majority of county governments

8.  Republican control of a majority of city governments

Now THAT is  “Hope and Change.”

He did for us what we couldn't do ourselves.

Arizona Town Crier Jim Ely: Who knows what stimulate (someone's) interest in or enthusiasm for believing in something. Would it be facts, conjecture, up-bringing, or whatever?   But that not withstanding, in any political organization one must access just what the leaders of that organization believes in since that belief will guide the direction of leadership in that organization.  As noted in Happy Warrior: Robert Graham Wants To Be Donald Trump's Pick For RNC Chair And Make The Party Of Lincoln More Unified And Inclusive Than Ever Before ,”As party chair, he (Graham) fought back an attempt to censure him by disgruntled Republicans and deftly played both sides of the party’s longstanding divide over U.S. Senator John McCain, who is variously loved and loathed by the GOP faithful.”.  And without noting any notable accomplishments by Mr. Graham, remember how ‘PRO’ the articled was about Mr. Graham?   Remember that in a previous ‘Arizona Town Crier’ email the few hundred readers were asked if anyone wanted to respond and address Mr. Graham’s tenure.  Leadership!  In business one must follow the direction of the boss (leader) or can be fired.  In the military one must follow the direction of the boss (leader) or can be punished.  In a volunteer organization the chair (leader) must adhere to the will of the membership or should be fired.  In a previous Arizona Town Crier mail there was a request for any comments about Mr. Graham’s tenure as chair.  There were no favorable responses but a couple of interesting replies.
