Scottsdale City Council Candidate Virginia Korte: As you probably know, my family has deep roots in Southern Scottsdale – for most of 30 years we operated a Chevrolet dealership on the corner of Scottsdale and McDowell Roads. I have taken a special interest in helping revitalize the area and am proud of the progress being made -- including the springing up of new businesses and the sprucing up of older neighborhoods. The restoration of Southern Scottsdale has been remarkable.
It is an ongoing process. So I want to express my appreciation to those who are investing in improving the area. Thank you for all that you are doing.
· Recently, the first pop-up art gallery on McDowell Road was created by Jeff Berghoff. Jeff had already done a spectacular job of re-purposing the old Scottsdale Nissan car dealership into his landscaping business, Berghoff Design Group. Now he has taken what was once the showroom of the former dealership and converted it into a 5,000 square-foot gallery.
· Southern Scottsdale resident Dana Close is working to increase the community’s awareness of how volunteers can help Coronado High School students excel.
· In addition, the Scottsdale Firefighters Association is a principal sponsor of Coronado’s Jobs For Arizona’s Graduates program in which 40 students are being taught special skills of how to become workforce-ready. Several weeks ago, Business United for Scottsdale Schools (BUSS) held its “Business & Education Partnership Breakfast” at SkySong. BUSS is a new organization committed to building a bond between our business and education communities.
· I urge everyone who is contributing to the revitalization of Southern Scottsdale to keep up the good work. I am proud to be a part of their efforts.
Former LD2 Chairman Don Woolley: As the tributes come in, let me offer Patti and mine, to you and the country: On this Sunday, March 6th, 2016, we are honored by and thank and salute one of our Greatest Presidents, and his wife. President Reagan and Nancy Reagan remind us when we were proud to be Americans, we were proud of America, and we were safe and protected. Michele Obama may have never been proud of her country, but most sensible and patriotic Americans were, and very much so. Michele and her husband have done tremendous harm to America at home and abroad, but we take pride in fighting him at every turn. That is what President Reagan and Nancy would have wanted us to do. And soon, Obama will go away a failed President, and we will have someone in the White House who again understands what it means to "defend the Constitution of the United States," and to not subvert it. The anger of the US is on full display right now, because establishment Republicans did not fight, and actually assisted in funding a failed Obama agenda, even though they had the purse strings in their hands to stop much of it. Obama played the race card, then Republicans were terrified to be labeled, at the cost of the United States prestige and its economy, even with the Senate and House in their hands. And to this day, they do not get it, and want to now subvert the will of the voters who are speaking loud and clear. God will surely bless President Reagan and Nancy, and today they are together again, in the hands of the Lord. We thank God every day that he was our President, and we are heartbroken that we have lost them both.
Yesterday morning AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham offered prayers to the family of First Lady Nancy Reagan after learning of her passing today. “Nancy Reagan was a such an incredible and positive influence on all of us, and we will always remember her and President Reagan for being tremendous leaders within our party and for our entire nation, as well as the world,” said Graham. “Our prayers today go out for her family, as we fondly remember her and her family’s legacy."
Congresswoman Martha McSally: “Nancy Reagan was a transformative First Lady who changed the country through her advocacy and example. She led efforts to combat drug abuse and was a faithful wing woman to President Reagan and vital to all he accomplished as president. She served as a model of love and devotion to us all as she supported him through his battle with Alzheimer's and became a voice for families throughout the country coping with this disease. Her death marks the end of an historic era for our country. My prayers go out to her family and all who mourn her passing.”
Governor Pete Wilson who serves on the Board of Trustees of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation issued the following statement today: "Ronald Reagan rescued America from domestic stagflation and "malaise." He freed the captive nations of eastern Europe from brutal Soviet oppression. He rescued the world from the threat of mutually assured nuclear destruction. All he did and his confident belief in America was sustained and deepened by the love and strength of Nancy Reagan's belief in him every day of their lives together. They were deeply in love and visibly totally devoted to each other. The petite and fragile woman on the President’s arm gave strength to his arm and great strength to his purpose. For those of us blessed to live in Ronald Reagan’s America, it was a land of peace, prosperity, and above all, of the precious freedom he safeguarded by insisting on American strength and making clear his resolve to use it if required to combat evil. For the model of goodness and wisdom his exceptional leadership gave us, we are immeasurably indebted to him---and to his loving, devoted Nancy, his unflagging supporter in their life together and tireless guardian of his legacy to the end of hers."
LD21 Senator Debbie Lesko: I am very pleased that my pension reform legislation, SB1428, passed out of the legislature, was signed by the governor, and will be on the May 17th ballot! After one year of negotiations with fire fighter and law enforcement associations, conservative organizations, Republican and Democratic legislators, cities, counties, and the governor’s office we got it done! This reform will help sustain the retirement system for our fire fighters and police and save taxpayers over $1.5 billion. I ask that you vote yes on Prop 124 on May 17th. SB1241, my legislation to prohibit photo radar cameras on state highways, passed out of the Senate and the House Transportation Committee. There are only two cameras left on state highways. One on Grand Ave. placed there by the City of El Mirage and the other on Hwy 260 east of Payson placed there by the Town of Star Valley. I believe the legislature, not the cities, should determine if photo radar belongs on state highways. If you support this legislation, please let all the Republican House members know since the bill is moving to the House floor next. Thank you. Please feel free to contact me anytime at DLesko@azleg.gov or 602-926-5413. I love my job and I’d love to hear from you.
