Editor’s Note: Please keep opinion pieces to 400 words.
LD15 PC George Moriarty: Frosty, You wrote "You dragged your esteemed position down to the level of a Grade B movie.” 9-21-17-briefs I suggest the opposite. If Senator McCain’s position is at the level of a Grade B movie, he must have raised it.
The AFA Team: Thank you, Frosty and James Alberts for refusing to cover for Sen. McCain. 9-21-17-briefs It's time to put away the political correctness and let the facts speak. McCain sets a terrible example for our young people aspiring to go into public service. He needs to retire. Now!
LD30 PC Timothy Schwartz: Subject: Please write a letter in opposition today. See Supervisor Denny Barney’s letter I’m asking for an overwhelming response on this vital issue! Last November Democrat Adrian Fuentes won election as the head of Maricopa County Elections by being heavily funded with the money machine of George Soros. Having no prior experience or training on how to lead and manage this vital organization, Fuentes began gutting long established protocols and hiring "unknowns" from out-of-state. Checks and balances which established bipartisan oversight were removed. The revamping of our elections department was not something done with careful consideration over a long period of time. Rightly so, many have become skeptical and even alarmed at these radical changes! Will you please write a letter of concern to Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Chairman Denny Barney today? Public feedback will carry great weight on this important issue. We only have until the 22nd of this month to send our letters to the Chairman. See Supervisor Denny Barney Letter (Chairman Barney is a friendly Republican. Please be polite and respectful, yet firm...
Activist Francine Romesburg: DITTO Alice Lara’s statement here. 9-20-17-briefs Frosty you are Wonder Woman Plus all super heroes!
LD24 PC Tristan Manos - "The Forgotten PC" - Part 3: Here’s an important reminder for all Precinct Committeemen (i.e. all Precinct Captains, LD, County, and State Chairmen): The most important and powerful position in the Party is the PC, as the PCs elect everyone above or below them. The PCs in each Precinct elect the Precinct Captain. If and whenever any majority of PCs believes it’s for the overall good to replace the Precinct Captain, the PCs may elect a new Precinct Captain. One of the most fundamental rules in party politics is majority rule. The PCs in each county, by statute, get to elect, directly, by majority vote, a Chairman and the other Officers. If and whenever (subject to time restrictions in the Bylaws), a new majority believes it’s for the overall good to replace the Chairman, they may remove the current Chairman and elect a new Chairman. How many LD Chairmen realize there’s 0 (zero) official requirement in state statute for the LD Chairman position? Same goes for LD Committees. Majority rule also goes for the State Committee. The precinct committeemen elect the State Committeemen, who in turn elect the AZGOP Chairman (also a member of the RNC), who also elect the other AZGOP Officers. The PCs elects the AZGOP State Convention Delegates. Those Convention Delegates, in turn, elect the other two members of the RNC, the AZ National Committeeman and AZ National Committeewoman. The organizational chart is most always imagined to be upside-down, with the RNC at the top; the state committee below that; then the county committee; then the local committee; then—way, way down, ‘at the bottom’—the PCs (if they’re even represented, at all). To see the chart right side-up, ‘We the PCs’ must see the chart the other way around. The PCs are the Sovereign (‘Ultimate Ruler’) of the Party, being elected by the Republicans in their respective precincts.’ All of this, guided by and kept in check by Arizona Law and both AZGOP and MCRC Bylaws.” Contact: email@example.com Editor’s Note: See Manos The Forgotten PC Part 1 and Part 2 at 9-21-17-briefs

US Rep Martha McSally and Sens John McCain and Jeff Flake yesterday sent letters to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and International Boundary Water Commission (IBWC) calling on the agencies to address the unmitigated raw sewage flowing from Naco, Sonora, Mexico, which has been plaguing the cities of Naco, Arizona and Bisbee, Arizona for years. “This week I toured the sewage spill at the border in Naco and saw first-hand sewage flowing north from Mexico onto my constituents’ private lands and pooling dangerously close to drinking water sources,” said McSally. “It is simply unacceptable, and it must be stopped. I stand with Senator McCain and Senator Flake to call on the EPA and the IBWC to do their jobs and intervene. Sewage is flowing faster than the bureaucracies are responding. They need to speed up their solution.” Sewage overflows and broken collection mains in Mexico have caused untreated wastewater to flow north under the U.S. border fence and into Greenbush Draw in McSally’s district, near municipal water sources. Sewage has been pooling 300 yards from wells maintained by the Arizona Water Company, which provides drinking water to Bisbee. “This flow of sewage poses a health, safety, and economic risk to Arizona’s vulnerable border towns, and we are greatly concerned about the lack of response of the federal agencies tasked with the oversight of this issue,” wrote McSally, McCain and Flake. “Between the flooded farms of Naco, Arizona and the broken pipeline in Nogales, Arizona, it is clear to us that coordination and communication between federal organizations and the communities they serve must be improved.” See letter to the EPA and letter to the IBWC.
