Arizona’s Anti-Proxie Petition Is available for electronic signatures, according to spokesman Archie Dicksion. The petition would amend Arizona Revised State Code Section 16-828 to prohibit political party members from carrying unlimited proxies for business meeting – or limit proxies to two per person per meeting. Grassroots party activists have complained for several years about the abuse of voting power by those carrying 20-40 proxies to legislative, county and state meeting - thus controlling the election of new officers and the vote on various issues. Due to speculated corruption at recent election meetings, some LD’s have already put limited proxy carrying regulations into effect. The root of the problem starts with the recruitment of precinct committeemen who rarely, if ever attend meeting, but turn their voting power over to “bell cows” who gather large numbers of proxies to control the outcome of various issues including the election of officers. To request the legislature put a stop to this practice, click on Proxie petition. Complete the information on the form, then click on the signature block and you can sign on your computer by using the mouse or on your Iphone, or android by using your finger. The anti-proxie petition reads:


     REPUBLICAN PARTY PLATFORM 2016, PAGE 16: “Honest elections are the foundation of representative government... We are concerned, however, that some voting procedures may be open to abuse.”
     ROBERT’S RULES OF ORDER: “Voting by proxy is inconsistent with the fundamental concept that voting rights are not transferrable.”
     ARIZONA HOUSE LEGISLATURE RULE 14: “No member shall be permitted to vote unless present in person to cast his vote.”
     BY SIGNING THIS PETITION we are requesting that the Arizona State Legislature prohibit the use of proxies at political party votes, or limit their use to no more than two (2) proxies per carrier…”

Please contact your elected legislative representative Legislative Member Roster to let them know you would like the ARS  amended to prohibit or limit the use of proxies at District, County and State Meetings. Contact Dicksion at – ft

Editor’s Note: Please keep opinion pieces to 400 words.

Political Activist Lolly Hathhorn: I thinks that Sen John McCain needs to stay home and recuperate.  It is sad to see how hateful and spiteful and anti-Trump he is and think that we, Republicans, are going to stand idly by and see him spout his angry, misguided rhetoric.  He is a RINO and is getting worse.  He is just a sore loser (could not win the Presidency) and is still spouting his hatred that a business man such as Donald Trump could manage to win the Presidency.  Mr. McCain is so angry with his situation that he knows that he has LOST in all aspects of his tenure.  So SAD!  For the sake of our Country, STAY HOME! As to Sen Jeff Flake, he is one!  He is so attached to McCain that it is not even funny.  How do these progressives getting elected time and time again?  It is time to clean the SWAMP!  Let’s start with McCain and Flake and go from there. 

Arizona Town Crier Jim Ehl: We have an officially elected AZGOP secretary asking a non-elected member of the AZ GOP headquarters for cooperation.  What cooperation? The bylaws list the statutory and mandatory officers who are elected by the state committeemen!  The Executive Director, Communications Director, and Political Coordinator are not listed.  The state chairman shall appoint a chaplain, finance chairman, general counsel, registration chairman, education chairman and such other officers, may be helpful from time to time: all to serve at his pleasure. The Executive Director. Communications Director, and Political Coordinator are not listed there, either.  IV.G. in the bylaws list the duties of ‘Appointed Officers, but does not give any duties for the Executive Director. Communications Director, or Political Coordinator.  The bylaws also state that the chairman shall officially appoint all committees and shall have “such usual powers of supervision and management as may be required for the effective functioning of the state party headquarters and staff or as shall be assigned to him/her by the state committee.  Can we assume that the Executive Director, the Communications Director, and Political Coordinator are hired or appointed shall be assigned to him/her by the state committee or that the chair chose to allow someone else to run the party instead of himself?  Duties??  Is it OK for those three “appointed” positions do whatever they like since there is no job description for them? The bylaws state that the chair may appoint committees, but the chair appointed a chair to set up the bylaws committee for him!!!

     We, then, must assume that the bylaws statement “and such other officers, may be helpful from time to time: all to serve at his pleasure” is the authority used to appoint the the Executive Director, the Communications Director, and Political Coordinator, but has anyone ever seen a reason for their existence, or a list of  “G. Duties of Appointive Officers”?  Too many County Chairs let a non-elected politico run the show.  Doesn’t your election as  party leader mean something to you???  

    Maybe an amendment to the bylaws process will give some clarification to this situation that doesn’t seem to bother so many of you!  If the current bylaws are virtually the same as written about 58 years ago, it is pretty easy to see why the stagnation.  Editor’s Note: Ehl’s letter was condensed due to length. - ft
