12-12-17 Briefs


LD13 Election Postponed: A One Word Error In The LD13 Call Letter for the election of a new chairman and a new second vice chairman left some LD13 PCs confused late last week as to whether they would have the election tonight. The official Call Letter signed by First Vice Chairman Matthew King and distributed on Dec 1 by the US mail, lists an errant day for the meeting. Friday morning (Dec 8) former LD13 chairman Robert Branch pointed out to LD13 Secretary Karri King and Matthew King that “…  your ‘Official Call Notice’ that you sent out to all LD13 PC has an error in it” that could void the election if contested. The ‘Official Call Notice’ errantly states that the meeting is on Mon., Dec 12 while the meeting was actually scheduled Tues., Dec 12. A Special meeting requires a 10 day notification to all LD13 PCs, according to the bylaws.

     The election is required since former LD13 Chairman Ben Boon resigned when he took a job in another state. Then former 2VC Michael Carbone resigned to run for the chairmanship. Both vacancies were announced at LD13’s October meeting. 

     While PCs aware of the call letter error waited for an e-mail directive, (which is the routine LD13 communications pipeline), Mathew King posted a Sunday morning Facebook cancellation of the Dec 12 meeting that reads: “The December Special Meeting call letter was sent with an error (day of the meeting), which makes the call letter invalid. In order to fully comply with the bylaws, the meeting is being rescheduled. A new call letter will be send out ASAP (no later than 10 days from the new meeting date). I appreciate your understanding and patience as we work through this error.”

     Late yesterday afternoon, an LD13 PCs inquiring about the lack of communications on the Dec 12 meeting, growled, “Nobody reads Facebook.”

     Editor’s Note: Nominee letters of intent were due on Nov 28 to the Nominating Committee Chair according to a Nov 19 e-mail to LD13 PCs from Secretary Karri King. However, the secretary’s Nov 19 e-mail doesn’t provide PCs with the Nominating Committee Chair’s name or contact information (e-mail or phone number), consequently PCs were wondering who the candidates are. On Thur., Dec 7 Briefs sent an e-mail to the 1 VC Matthew King requesting a list of nominees for the two vacancies. As of post time this morning, Briefs has received no response to the request for the candidate nominees for chair and second vice chairman positions. - ft

Tom Morrissey Past Chairman AZ GOP: I want to salute John Strasser for the excellent work he does in helping to get the word out to the faithful, along with the always remarkable Frosty Taylor as they produce the MCRC Briefs. Another reason for this salute, that many of you don't know about was his generosity in cleaning up the virus ridden server at Republican party Headquarters during my term there. He volunteered his time and expertise and received not one dime in payment. His efforts paid off in a dramatic fashion as all of our problems with the Internet completely disappeared after he performed a mammoth task. John is a perfect example of the talent and dedication the Lord has provided in times of need.  Thank you John. Editor’s Note: Strasser deserves very word of praise. Briefs, too, is very grateful for all the invaluable volunteer computer work and advice he offers in keeping the system operational. –ft

Fountain Hills Activist Nancy Plencner: Trent Franks has chosen to step aside.  Regardless of why, the seat is open and we understand the Governor will be calling for a special election.  At least with an election District 8 voters will have a shot at picking Frank's replacement.  Hopefully it will not be someone who is part of the political system such as a current or former elected official who wants to work their way "up the food chain", or for heaven's sake a lobbyist who is guaranteed to do nothing to help President Trump drain the swamp.  How about this?  Might there be among us an Arizonan in the district who can step away from their day to day job, activities, or become un-retired for a few years in order to serve the people and the interest of Arizona?  This is the formula that our founding fathers envisioned, citizens lending their talents and skills to govern their Country, serving for a short while and then returning to their homes, farms and businesses.  Only in modern day America have we coined the term Career Public Service which in John Conyer's (D) Mi case spanned 50 plus years!! Good grief, the guy was a Congressman when I was a newlywed in 1964.  And that is why he was able to get away with what he did for so long; as Minority Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, "Conyer's is an Icon"! He had become untouchable, the poster child for all that is wrong with Congress.  So come on people, look in the mirror and ask that reflection if he/she is willing to make the effort to leave albeit it gorgeous Arizona for the Swamp called DC.  Don't pass the buck or think that an everyday American couldn't do the job; if left to the professional politicos nothing will change as they serve to rack up more power and amass larger and larger retirements!

Political Activist Lolly Hathhorn:  I was saddened by the resignation of Trent Franks since I have always thought of him as being quite level-headed.  It seems that people have to watch every word and nuance for fear of being put in the position that he has been put in.  It is also sad looking back and the Republicans not doing what was supposed to be done (impeach Clinton) when he lied to Congress and had so many transgressions!  Holier than Thou does not fit the DemocRATS nor the Swamp Republicans.  Let’s get working on what is good for the citizens of the U.S. and stop posturing for the press.  I do not find it interesting to say the least.  One thing for sure, my President Trump did not go to Washington to line his pockets!  Most everyone else in Congress is bought and paid for.  Not saying ALL, but it seems to be almost all.  Go in middle class and come out in the top one percent!  Now why did I not think of that when I was younger?  The Swamp needs to be drained and not let good folks get sent home by the likes of Speakers Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell!  My two cents for the day. 

GOP Consultant Constantin Querard, “Let’s Just Say If I Don’t Have A Candidate In This Race, My Feelings Are Going To Be Hurt,” referring to the CD8 race to replace former Congressman Trent Franks.

Carole Joyce: I see Debbie Lesko as the winner of Trent’s seat !  She’s a Woman…has state name recognition. She's  a  winner! She’s not one of these “Also-Rans”.  She has sponsored meaningful legislation and has an excellent command of the issues.  She is well respected even by moderate and liberal Republicans. Time for another WOMAN in Congress in Arizona !

Bill Beard - Pima CoBill Beard, CD2 Member at Large: Why does the State of Arizona conduct Hand Count Audits at the end of each election? The Arizona founders understood the same lesson of human history as the authors of the US Constitution did. Human beings are flawed. Despite our best intentions some of us will make mistakes. Some of us will be tempted to tip the scale to favor our side over another. The purpose of the hand count is to hold the folks that conduct an election be held accountable for the results. In other words there is a way to independently verify the results. Without this fundamental ability to check the power of the election officials who’s to say who really won? Do we just trust the better nature of those in charge? Our system of government was designed to ensure that should someone with nefarious intentions gain access to power there would always be someone looking over their shoulder. Stalin is purported to have been more concerned with who was counting than how many were voting.

     Sunlight they say is the best disinfectant. The purpose of my Resolution is to restore this simple means of ensuring that the elections within the Republican Party and by extension All elections have some means of verifying the result. We have all watched some of the shenanigans of some Arizona election officials in recent years. Do we want oversight or do we simply want to trust them to do the right thing? I believe the founders of this country had a different idea about this. In our haste to get the quickest results do we trade off accountability? I think not. I ask the State Committeemen of Arizona to support this Resolution and the By-Law change regarding this matter at the January meeting. As of this morning Southeast Arizona is in full support of this Resolution. LD 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11 and 14 have all voted in support, many unanimously.  Editor’s Note: See Beard’s “Proposed Election Resolution” For AZGOP Mandatory Meeting in the 12-8-17 Briefs

Russell Sias -LaPaz  co chrRussell Sias, La Paz Republican County Chair - WE ARE BEING DUPED! PART 2: Did any of you catch the violation of our bylaws, shortly after Chairman Jonathan Lines appointed a new chairman for the Resolutions Committee? You didn’t? Well, READ our bylaws? If you didn’t catch it, then, GO READ the bylaws again!

The Resolution bylaw:...H. Resolutions - 1. Resolutions Committee -- .The state chairman shall appoint a resolutions committee for each statutory organizational and mandatory meeting. The committee shall consist of one member from each county with population under 500,000 and one member from each legislative district in counties with populations over 500,000; each recommended by the respective county or district chairman.

     2 Procedures -- Proposed resolutions, other than memorial, may be no more than 250 words long and must be submitted 45 days before the scheduled state party meeting in order to be considered by the resolutions committee. The committee may initiate, recommend, modify or reject any resolution. Since the committee's purpose is to give the full assembly the benefit of its complete debate and mature judgment, motions to table or to close or limit debate will not be allowed. All resolutions submitted to the committee shall be sent with the committee's recommendations and vote count to each state committeeman with the notice of call of the meeting….

    Let me point out the infraction. NOWHERE in this bylaw, does it limit a resolution submitter to being a state committeeman. Again, Russia’s Putin could submit a resolution! So, where did the requirement that has now been added that states only state committeemen can submit a resolution? Since when do our state party leaders get to create their personal bylaws? The better question may be why leadership would bother to invent this restriction, and why would Chairman Lines tolerate rate this obvious violation of our bylaws?

     The best question, is why we, that’s you and I, put up with a state leadership that routinely violate our bylaws? What’s the point of a bylaws committee, if our leadership ignores our bylaws? Another thought: Do you think it’s right that a resolution committee should have the right to simply trash a resolution? Well, maybe the bylaws committee will fix some of these issues. Oh, wait! Nobody knows who’s on the committee! We can’t even ask! What’s with that? Read our bylaws yet? They're at:, Stay tuned for We are being Duped! Part 3.

Steve MontenegroConservative State Senator Steve Montenegro is a candidate in the special election to fill the CD8 seat recently vacated by Congressman Trent Franks. “When I spoke with Congressman Franks he stressed the many critical battles being fought in Congress and asked if I would consider changing from the Secretary of State’s race to run for Congress.  My wife and I prayed on it and concluded that there was no place in this country more in need of principled conservative blood than the U.S. Congress. With the full support of my friends and family, I am a candidate for the United States Congress, and I will continue the fight for liberty, a strong national defense, the restoration of fiscal sanity, a growth-centered economic policy, respect for human life, secure borders and an end to illegal immigration, and a government that must be returned to the people.”

     Montenegro has been regularly recognized as a Hero/Champion of the Taxpayer by Americans for Prosperity.  He led the effort to pass the largest tax cuts in Arizona history and played a key role in digging the state out of one of the worst deficits in the nation.  He also has been a committed advocate for increasing transparency in government and sponsored legislation that allows Arizona taxpayers to see how their tax-dollars are spent.   Montenegro has consistently earned top grades from pro-family, pro-life, pro-taxpayer, and pro-Constitution groups.  He voted for SB1070 and other efforts to stop illegal immigration and secure our borders, and he has earned an A+ rating from the NRA.

     Montenegro will resign from the State Legislature effective December 15th so that his seat can be filled for the start of the January Legislative.  “The people of my district deserve a full-time Senator and it will be impossible to give the race and my legislative office the attention they both deserve.  It has been the honor of my lifetime to serve for nine years in the Arizona Legislature and I’m proud of the success we have had. It is time to help President Trump save the United States of America!”

     Montenegro and his wife Melissa have one daughter and live in Goodyear.  He is a former assistant teacher at Arizona Charter Academy and Superior School in Surprise.  He is a Minister at Surprise Apostolic Church and has worked as Franks District Representative. He is a Magna Cum Laude graduate of Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Science in Political Science and an Associate of Arts in Theology. He has served on the advisory boards for GOPAC, Arizona Charter Academy and the RSLC Future Majority Project and is currently a trustee of Arizona Christian University.

 Southern Arizona native Sergio Arellano will announce his candidacy for CD3 at 1 pm today at a Casa de Cambio and WhataBurro sponsored event at 4876 S 12th Ave., in Tucson. Arellano, an Army veteran, who currently serveSergio Arellanos residents in southern Arizona as a liaison for Pima County Supervisor Steve Christy, has spent his entire adult life in public service. From the battle field to the boardroom, Arellano says he has fought with integrity and determination. Arellano said his fellow veterans have urged him to consider seeking the Republican Party’s nomination in CD3. In his campaign to draft Arellano, Army Specialist (ret.) Alexis Jacquez Gamez said, “The people of southern Arizona deserve a strong leader, who understands what it takes to fight in the trenches. Sergio was an infantryman just like I was, and he knows what it’s like to take the oath. He knows what it means to stand up for the Constitution. To protect and defend something valuable. He won’t be afraid to take on tough topics and special interests. He will not disappear, like others have, if he should run and win.”

Candidates Are Asked to e-mail their announcements and a photo to Briefs at or for posting so readers can learn who the candidates are.

Rob HaneyPhoenix Conservative Republican Activist Rob Haney told The Wanderer he thought the Democratic Party’s negative influence in California factored into the trial verdict on the Steinle case. “California has become the showcase for the Democrat Party’s destruction of western civilization’s core values,” Haney said, adding that the verdict on “a frequently deported illegal alien was to be expected in the California system of injustice. The Democrats have complete control of all the avenues of power in the state. The news media, entertainment industry, and universities are also controlled by an overwhelmingly left-wing hierarchy. Because of the radical-left indoctrination received by the residents of California, the Steinle trial would have had to have been moved to a flyover state for justice to have prevailed. A sanctuary state like California is going to protect the illegal alien in all circumstances. Their population now demands it.” Editor’s Note: Haney is a past chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Committee.

archie dicksionGrassroots Republicans are urged to sign Archie Dicksion’s Proxy Petition To Curb Proxy Abuse Http://Bit.Ly/2rzg2w8. When signing the petition, you have two choices, total ban or limit to two per person. There has been great concern over the use of proxies the past five or years or more to control elections at both the AZGOP and Maricopa County Republican Mandatory meeting held every January. Complaints have been voiced for several years of “Bell Cows” carrying up to 40 proxies for PC who rarely, if ever attend meetings. Opponents of the excessive use of proxies say the misuse and abuse of proxies has resulted in the cleansing of conservative grassroots Republicans from leadership roles a at the district, county and state level by RINOs or McCainites.
