7-25-16 Briefs

Republican Briefs

Editor Frosty Taylor      Web Master John Strasser


DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigns: The chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee faced growing pressure to resign in the aftermath of the release of thousands of embarrassing internal email exchanges among Democratic officials. Her resignation takes effect at the end of the Democratic National Convention, which begins Monday.

The Wickenburg Republican Club will not meet this evening.  Contact: Chr Frosty Taylor,,  or 928-684-1221.

Tom Morrissey, Immediate Past Chairman AZ GOP: One of the highlights of our National Convention was meeting with Gov Mike Huckabee.  Sheriff Joe, my wife Kris and I had the opportunity to spend some time meeting with the Governor in the FOX Green Room. He spoke about his sincere belief that Donald Trump can, and will restore the rule of law to our country.  He pointed to Sheriff Joe saluting him for his performance as a seasoned law enforcement officer and leader even under the current challenges he experiences on a daily basis. Huckabee has, what is probably the best understanding of what we are up against in Hillary (and Bill) Clinton and his perspective on them will be extremely helpful as we go forward toward Election Day. I complimented him on his musicianship as a solid bass player in his group "The Little Rockers" and we discussed my days in the music business as part of the Ohio Express.  It’s funny how so few people remember the name of the band but everybody remembers "Yummy, Yummy, Yummy".

Former Maricopa County Republican Committee Chairman Lyle Tuttle to Jim Ely: Jim, what specifically do you expect AzRA to do? See 7-24-16-briefs.html

Congressman Trent Franks will be hosting a meet and greet from 5-6:30 pm, Wed., July 27 at the West Side GOP Office, 10050 W. Bell Road, Suite #26 In Sun City. Coffee, water and pastries will be served. Yard signs and bumper stickers will be available. Contact: or (623) 979-1776 to have a yard sign delivered.

LD21 Sen Debbie Lesko: As I was unpacking all my Trump and Republican National Convention souvenirs I noticed that ALL of them are made in the USA. Trump promises to bring jobs back to America. His actions prove he'll do it!

Former LD13 Chairman Robert Branch: As I see it! Hillary Clinton’s 3 greatest accomplishments1. Staying out of jail – Mishandling of classified information. 2. Staying out of jail – Contempt of Congress - lying to Congress about Benghazi3. Staying out of jail - Clinton Foundation taking money for Uranium and favors.

Town Crier Jim Ely: Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: “A political party (from Latin: pars, Genitive partis, "part", "portion") is a political organization that typically seeks to influence, or entirely control, government policy, usually by nominating candidates with aligned political views and trying to seat them in political office.[1] Parties participate in electoral campaigns and educational outreach or protest actions. Parties often espouse an ideology or vision, expressed in a party program, bolstered by a written platform with specific goals, forming a coalition among disparate interests” In the newspaper of 7-24-16, a front page article, “Four candidates vie for GOP nod in State Rep race.”    Now if one reads that article who can say which two are the best qualified.  In addition, listen to their rhetoric or count the number of road signs, and then say which are the best two qualified.    Every election year voters are offered a ‘pig in a poke”, an unreached choice of for whom to vote.  That is, how can voters research their choice for a candidate, or just be influenced by campaign speeches, slicky brochures or signs?  Where is the party??  The party??  The party waits until after the primary election and then sometimes supports the people’s choice.  Does that help? Just an idea.  Seems that if the chairs of the legislative districts were to call a special meeting of their Precinct Committeemen to hear their concerns, and from that meeting compile a list of issues of concerns, and then forward that list to the candidates for office in that district for their response, and then publish the candidates replies, that would give valuable information to the voters and a solid input from WE THE PEOPLE, the overlooked Precinct Committeemen.  This is not for the party to tell party members for whom to vote, but provide information to help voters decide.  If the party is of no help, why have a party?

US Sen John McCain will address the Arizona Water Reuse Symposium at 9:30 am., Mon, July 25 in Flagstaff,. He will be joined by Flagstaff Mayor Jerry Nabours and city water managers to discuss solutions to safeguarding Arizona’s water supplies for future generations.

Former LD13 Chairman Robert Branch: Women - Hillary is pandering for your vote. The Clinton foundation pays women 82 cents on a dollar want they pay men. Trumps organization pays women equal to man. In fact they have more women executives then men.

Republican Corporation Commission candidates Andy Tobin, Al Melvin and Rick Gray announced that they are running as a team for the three Arizona Corporation Commission seats that are up for election. “Already being on the Commission I appreciate the importance of quality commissioners who are working together to provide stability to both providers and ratepayers, and that’s what I believe this team will do,” said Commissioner Tobin. “As three conservative Republicans who are equally committed to ensuring a plentiful supply of clean and safe water and electricity to our great state, the team approach just made sense,” said former State Senator Melvin. State Representative Gray said, “With our team of Tobin, Melvin and Gray the people of Arizona will have strong leadership that will work to protect the ratepayers while providing affordable, reliable utilities.” Collectively, Tobin, Melvin, and Gray have all been awarded Friend of the Taxpayer and Friend of the Family awards, and have extensive private and public sector expertise.
