Official Call to MCRC Statutory Organizational Meeting scheduled Jan 14, 2017 at El Zaribah Shriner’s Auditorium, 552 N 40 th St., Phoenix, AZ 85008.

With the Maricopa County Republican Committee’s (MCRC) Mandatory Meeting only 10 days away, three LD Chairman took exception the MCRC Statutory meeting Call Letter being delivered to them via e-mail with a directive to forward the Call Letter to their PCs. They further objected to paying for postage to inform their PCs whose e-dresses they do not have. Late last night MCRC Chairman Tyler Bowyer said that the “vast majority of district chairs distributed it (call letter) by e-mail – only three of the 20 pushed back but ultimately agreed to simply e-mail it to their PCs. We are happy that the majority stuck to the plan discussed in EGC and thank all of the district chairs for making a concerted effort to get us into modern times.”

     Traditionally “call letters” are sent out via US Mail 10 days prior to the Statutory meeting, but the cost of postage has been cited as one reason for turning to e-mail for faster, more efficient, less costly route for notifying Maricopa County PCs of the meeting. The Call Letter includes the agenda, meeting rules, proposed by law changes, proposed resolutions, directions to the meeting and a proxy form for those who cannot attend in person. PCs who have not received the Call Letter from their LD Chairman can download the letter and attachments at Official Call to MCRC Statutory Organizational Meeting

    Reports are surfacing that the objection to paying the postage is an attempt to draw attention away from AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham’s differences with LD23 over his directive to call for another organizational meeting Graham-Dec 9 letter or face possible disenfranchisement of their 119 state committeemen’s ability to vote at the Jan 28 AZGOP Statutory meeting AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham Tries to Invalidate Legitimate State Committeemen Elections and AZGOP Chairman Graham calls on LD23 PCs to Revolt!. LD23 Chairman Nancy Ordowski recently informed Graham the LD23 Board didn’t believe he had any jurisdiction over county elections. Ordowski Response To Graham - ft

UPDATE: LD23 Chairman Nancy Ordowski wants PCs to know that she and LD23 First Vice-Chair Tim Horn, along with their legal counsel, met with AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham, his assistant Tim Sifert and their legal counsel on Dec 29, 2016 and again on Jan 3, 2017 working toward a resolution to solve Graham and LD23’s concerns regarding the Dec 1, 2016 LD23 State Committeeman election.

Briefs Sent Identical Questions to the three AZGOP Chairman candidates. Their answers will be posted every day until the Jan 28 Mandatory Meeting election. Question #3: Will you invite the Maricopa County Republican Committee to return to its space inside AZGOP Headquarters?

  • Frank Thorwald: Given that I would like to expand training programs as well as the use of both paid and volunteer personnel at the AZGOP offices, space requirements may not lend themselves to having the county party at the same location. However, if space is available, I believe it would be beneficial to have the county party located within the AZGOP facility, so yes, I would invite the county party to relocate back to the AZGOP offices.

      Johnathan Lines: While I think that the Republican Party in Maricopa County, one of the largest counties in the country, should be able to secure the little funding it takes to have an office, I will surely allow them to work out of the AZ GOP HQ until they can get their stuff together. That being said, I have very high hopes for the future of the Maricopa County Party and have a feeling that the next County Chair will be exemplary!

      Jim O’Connor: Yes, with open arms. And without regard to whoever is elected County Chairman. It’s the right thing to do.

The Maricopa County Republican Statutory Meeting is scheduled Jan 14, 2017 at the El Zaribah Shriner’s Auditorium, 552 N. 40th St, Phoenix, AZ 85008, not the Polly Rosenbaum Building, as originally announced. Contrary to reports, the Shriner’s auditorium has NOT been renamed the Polly Rosenbaum Building. They are located on the opposite sides of metropolitan Phoenix, so be sure you are heading for the Shriner’s Auditorium. You don’t want to arrive late for credentials registration.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton appeared on “MSNBC Live with Craig Melvin” on MSNBC yesterday, to discuss House Republican's possible vote to gut Office of Congressional Ethics.

Meet David Eppihimer, Chairman Pima County Republican Party: I'm a Second Amendment guy, NRA member, avid hunter and horseman, proponent of the electoral college, foe of the national popular vote compact, Constitutionalist, ordained Presbyterian Elder; 20 year PC, 25 year Tucsonan and a life-long Republican whose first political campaign was Goldwater vs Johnson in 1964 at the age of 15. I intend to begin elevating the Republican Party, raising critical funding and investing in our PCs. I'm a unity chairman who believes in Ronald Reagan's big tent. There is room for all who believe in less government through personal responsibility, fiscal responsibility and free market economic policies.

     I believe that our Pima County Republican image has not been actively marketed. It's time to utilize a team of talent to ensure our local party is identifiable, visible and unified in principle. We must promote the benefits of greater personal responsibility, less government regulation and a business friendly environment. More business will mean more jobs for Pima County workers. There are many qualified Republicans in Pima County who could run for office. We will attract them, vet them and run them in winning campaigns. We will attract like-minded voters by increasing our PCs with training and support programs.   We will engage in communication to the needs of each district at executive committee and LD meetings. We will attend our local Republican Club meetings.  We will develop a plan for effective communication and create a technology committee that will enhance our web site. It's time to restructure our strategy to secure sustainable funding for candidate recruitment and campaigning by building on positive relationships within our community and with our state leadership. As Pima GOP Finance Director, I was able to raise some $30,000 in 2016 to keep our doors open. We will create a finance committee to develop and implement strategies for sustainable fund raising utilizing major gifts, special events and reoccurring donations.

Zack Taylor, Chairman NAFBPO.org: This Everett Washington Newspaper demonstrates how to report on drug crime and murder among transnational criminals without directly revealing critical information about their nationality, Immigration Status or the clear link to insecure borders.  This is what you look for in a newspaper that is located in a sanctuary city.  They don't talk factually and openly about their Illegal Alien/Transnational Crime realities.  At least this time they talk around it enough to figure out some of what is going on and make it obvious that is what they are doing.  The links are insightful. If the imbedded Illegal Alien Agents of the Sinaloa Cartel living in the Everett area were not able to remain and operate freely in the United States with their other criminal associates none of this would have happened to the extent reported, much less continued for years. So look at the highlighted sections for the clues that this is a well-established border insecurity situation bringing drugs and illegal aleins far into the United States. Sanctuary Cities + Illegal Aliens = Transnational Crime drug-dealers-allegedly-have-ties-to-sinaloa-cartel

Arizona Town Crier Jim Ehl: In the MRC Brief’s, all three candidates for chairmanship of the party hyped working with Precinct Committeemen. Mr. Thorwald  stated.  “I would create a kitchen cabinet  ...”.  Mr. Lines says, “I do plan on having a space dedicated to data and targeting requests for PC’s.”  Mr. O’Connor mentions something like, “that begins with integrity, continues with the truth, and wins because of the people we are and the ideals we hold dear.”  That reminds one of past chairs like Mr. Minnaugh.  He talked like he was pro precinct committeemen. His ‘kitchen cabinet was with those who agreed with him and then he did his own thing.  That’s like past chair Mr. Pullen who said that he worked with all of the county chairs.  Maybe he did but even if he talked with all of the county chairs he did his own thing.  Unless the one elected will see that the AZ BYLAWS are updated, obeyed, and the Executive Committee changed to include just the County Chairs who have purview over the PCs with formal meetings and reports, don’t expect much to change.  When Matt Salmon became chair, agreements were forgotten, which can likely be the case with some of the present candidates.  It is interesting how many candidates for office express ‘WHAT’ but are short on ‘HOW’.  That’s one fallacy of our Republic voting system.  Looks like the candidate with the best story wins, regardless of knowledge or qualifications.  One reason to have a political party is to keep party members informed.  Does that ever happen with the AZ GOP??  Is there a committee of any kind researching and guiding the party?  Who votes based on qualifications and accomplishments?

The Sun City West Republican Club will meet with AZGOP Chairman candidate Jim O’Connor on “Building GOP legislative Districts” and his campaign for chairmanship of the Arizona Republican Party at 8:30 am, Sat., Jan 7 in the Quail Room of the SCW Foundation Bldg. Social hour – 8 am coffee/donuts. $2 admission to help defray room rental costs. O’Connor is the immediate past LD23 Chairman and is currently the 2nd Vice President of the Arizona Republican Assembly. Club membership dues are $10. Contact: www.GOP.scwclubs.com
