Sparky Smith, chairman pro tem of the Maricopa County Republican Committee’s City of PHoeninx/Citizens of Phoenix Committee, urges residents to “get out the vote” for Chris DeRose, the only Republican running for the recently vacated Phoenix City Council District 3 seat. DeRose, who addressed the newly-forming MCRC City of Phoenix/Citizens of Phoenix Committee (CPC) last week at the Coco's in downtown Phoenix, hopes to replace the District 3 seat vacanted in late May after Republican Bill Gates resigned his seat to run for the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors. The seat is now held by Democrat Debra Stark, by way of temporary appointment. As one of its primary objectives, the CPC strongly encourages voters -- especially MCRC PCs -- to play a role in working to elect "Constitutional Conservative" Republicans to Phoenix City Hall who will represent "We The People" and work to restore "The Social Contract" for this generation and future generations. The CPC calls on Republicans to work on "Get Out The Vote (GOTV)" for Republican candidates in all elections, emphasizing Phoenix City Hall as being "Ground-Zero" for "We The People" of Phoenix to realize the right to "Self-Governance" The "Special Election" for the City of Phoenix City Council District 3 seat will be on Tues, Nov 8 – the General Election day. Contact DeRose at: deroseforphoenix or Smith email@example.com
