Word from the Maricopa County Recorders office is that the June “Get Involved Orientation” classes are already filled. Reports say that lots of Democrat PCs have filled the classes. Where was the GOP on this one? If it weren’t for LD23 PC Gina Swoboda alerting fellow PCs, it would have slipped by unnoticed. 5-20-17 Briefs archives 450 people have signed up within 3-5 days for each session (150) per class, according to Peg Kragie of the Recorder’s office. Briefs will try to keep you informed when/if more classes are offered. Keep in mind that they need equal Republicans to ensure integrity of the elections.

Congressman Trent Franks: Following the announcement of President Trump signing a waiver to postpone moving the Israeli embassy to Jerusalem for six months, Franks said: "As chair of the Israel Allies Caucus, I am extremely disappointed in President Trump’s decision to delay moving our embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv. It is my sincerest hope to meet with the President’s advisors soon to discuss the plan moving forward.”

Congressional Western Caucus Chairman Paul A. Gosar: “I am thrilled by President Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement. It is high time that we do away with this unconstitutional treaty negotiated by former President Obama,” said Gosar. “Withdrawing from the agreement shows the American people and the world that he means business, follows through on his promises, and puts America first. From the American Energy Independence Executive Order to repealing a multitude of onerous rules and regulations, President Trump and his Administration have already made excellent progress to roll back Obama’s attack on affordable energy. Ringing up with a price tag of nearly a trillion dollars a year to reduce the average global temperature by one third of one degree, this bad investment defied commonsense with embarrassing returns. I don’t care what shade of lipstick you put on this pig, at the end of the day it’s still a pig and I’m glad to see this out of touch pipedream put out to pasture once and for all.” Gosar is supported by Chairman Emeritus Rep. Steve Pearce (NM-02), Chief Defense and Interior Officer Rep. Chris Stewart (UT-02), Chief Infrastructure and Forestry Officer Rep. Bruce Westerman (AR-04) and Western Caucus members Rep. Tom Emmer (MN-06), Rep. Brian Babin (TX-36), Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01), Rep. Andy Biggs (AZ-05), Rep. Doug Lamborn (CO-05), Rep. Liz Cheney (WY-At Large), and Rep. Ralph Abraham M.D. (LA-05).

Congressman Andy Biggs: “This afternoon, President Trump followed through on another significant promise to the American people by removing the nation from the Paris Climate Agreement. This agreement was the capstone of the Obama administration’s attempt to circumvent the constitutional powers of Congress and the antithesis of job creation and American energy production. By withdrawing from the agreement, President Trump has signaled to foreign powers and bureaucrats that the United States will not be subject to unattainable and unproductive environmental standards that will have a detrimental effect on hard-working Americans and do not come with a guarantee of compliance from other nations. I applaud President Trump for his forward thinking, commitment to his promises, and protection of American sovereignty.”

Congresswoman Martha McSally announced that her office is accepting nominations for the second annual Southern Arizona Congressional First Responder of Distinction Award. The award recognizes local, county, state, and federal first responders—fire, police, and emergency medical personnel—in the Second District who go above and beyond to serve Southern Arizona.

“Our first responders selflessly serve our communities and keep up safe day in and day out,” said McSally. “They put their lives on the line during emergencies, provide assistance whenever needed, keep our border secure, and save lives. This award is meant to honor them for their commitment, integrity, duty, and servant leadership. I hope you will join me by nominating candidates for recognition.” A panel of first responders and community members will review the nominations to determine award winners. All winners and nominees will be recognized at a ceremony on July 10, 2017 at the Public Safety and Emergency Services Institute (4355 East Calle Aurora, Tucson). Qualified nominees must:

  • Be honorably serving in the local, county, state or federal law enforcement agency or fire department
  • Demonstrate a commitment to serving their community through their professions or through volunteerism or other civic duties
  • Demonstrate the perseverance and determination necessary to execute difficult tasks while still exhibiting a spirit of excellence in all they do

Nominations can be dropped off to the Tucson or Sierra Vista office or submitted by email to or fax at (520) 322-9490. The deadline for nominations is Friday, June 23, 2017. Nomination forms and details HERE.
