With Drivers Heading Out On Memorial Day Weekend trips along state highways, the Arizona Department of Transportation’s network of message signs will carry essential travel and safety information. Messages ranging from “Crash Ahead Right Lane Blocked” to “Drive Sober” can be displayed on the more than 250 electronic boards that ADOT uses to keep travelers up to date across the Grand Canyon State. The signs also will be used to remind drivers about extreme wildfire conditions.

      With Interstate 17 between Phoenix and Flagstaff one of the busiest highways on holiday weekends, ADOT has over the past year installed four new message boards at key locations between Anthem and the State Route 69 interchange at Cordes Junction.The two newer northbound I-17 message signs, near Table Mesa Road and Mud Springs Road in the Black Canyon City area, inform drivers about conditions or offer safety tips before they start the climb up the mountainous stretch to Sunset Point.The two newer southbound message boards at Cordes Junction and approaching the Sunset Point Rest Area also play a key role in keeping motorists up to date, especially if traffic has been slowed or stopped due to an incident as travelers return to the Phoenix area.There are now 17 message boards along I-17 between north Phoenix and Flagstaff.

ronna mcdaniel - RNC"The Republican National Committee knows what we’re up against this November. We know we’re facing tough historical trends, and many in the mainstream media have all but called this election a loss for Republicans. But we’ve defied history before, and the Republican Party is in prime position to do it again in 2018. Despite facing a 'blue wave,' when Americans headed to the polls to cast their ballots in primary elections, Republicans had record turnout…The strong showing is a result of the RNC’s permanent data-driven ground game, the largest in the party’s history. Our sweeping infrastructure has been years in the making and is key to our 2018 midterm strategy. To ensure we defy history, the Republican National Committee is investing $250 million in our midterm election strategy. This is the largest ground game investment we’ve ever made in any cycle…To date, we’ve trained over 13,000 leadership fellows this cycle — far surpassing records we set even during presidential years — and we’ve made over 15 million voter contacts…We have shattered fundraising records thanks to our dedicated small-dollar online donors, and this has created an even bigger fundraising advantage over our Democratic counterparts. Just last week, the RNC announced another record breaking fundraising month for April, bringing our total haul to $184.5 million cycle to date. We are far ahead of the Democratic Party by every measure, not only in fundraising but also in the strength of our ground game, voter engagement and activism."

NOTES FROM READERS

Opinions expressed by readers are not necessarily those of the Briefs. Commentary running over 400 words is subject to editing. Briefs posts candidate announcements, but does not endorse candidates, nor do we post endorsement statements. - ft.

Activist Gary Ripley: Thanks for the update Frosty I was just going to email you asking if everything was ok. Thanks for all you do as the best source for GOP info in the state.

 Gabby CD3AZGOP Secretary Gabby Mercer: I stand corrected!  This was Chairman Jonathan Lines 2Jonathan Lines response to my request for a rebate between the three senate candidates. He simply forwarded Alexis Valdrez Darnell’s email to me even though that was not the email I sent to him.  5-22-18-briefs. Darnell’s e-mail: “I know this email wasn’t intended for me and I’m chiming in here but we have HIGHLY advised state parties to stay far away from getting involved in debates during Republican Primaries, especially campaigns as high-profile as a US Senate race. Debates are extremely difficult things to manage and regardless of who the organizers/hosts are, those entities will inevitably face criticism from campaigns about favorability, fairness, question selection, format, etc.  There is really no upside to the State Party playing a role in this and far too many risks involved.  Because of the nature of the US Senate primary I’m sure the networks or local entities in Arizona will have a high interest in hosting a debate and it is wise to Lori Klein 2leave the liability on them. Just my two cents but happy to talk through this more if you’d like.” This message was originally directed to Arizona Republican National Committeewoman Lori Klein Corbin, who had also written to AZGOP headquarters urging the debate.

     On Sun., May 20 Corbin sent an e-mail to Lines requesting debate. Corbin wrote: Jonathan, I think this would be a good idea to have the AZGOP sponsor a debate and possibly get it televised and maybe ask someone like Sean Hannity to come out and be the host along with another celebrity.  This would get Arizona national attention and also make for an interesting event which also could be used as an AZGOP fundraising event.  I'm happy to help.”

    Corbin’s e-mail was the results of a message she had received from LD1 Precinct Committeewoman Patricia “Pat” Gillenwater that reads: “Hello Lori, I am writing you today to ask you to urge Chairman Lines to support  holding a debate to include all the candidates running for U.S. Senate. This is one of the most important midterm primaries of my time as an Arizona resident. It's critical that AZ voters have a chance to evaluate the candidates before they cast their ballot. I also believe that this effort by AZGOP to sponsor a debate will reap great benefits for the state GOP. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Javan Mesnard LD17 - speaker of houseRoyce FloraHouse Speaker JD Mesnard responds to Maricopa County Treasurer Royce Flora: “In addition to being of questionable constitutionality, SB 1268 was felt by many to be advancing a discriminatory property tax policy. Consequently, it was opposed by conservative taxpayer watchdog groups like the Arizona Tax Research Association, among others. Nevertheless, as a professional courtesy to the Maricopa County Treasurer’s Office and the bill’s sponsor, I put it up for a vote anyway. It was overwhelmingly rejected by a vote of 11-49, among the most lopsided defeats of this year’s session. Given the Treasurer’s unjust and outrageous personal attacks on me as a result of the bill’s defeat, I wish I hadn’t extended any courtesy to that office and don't plan to again. “It is a mystery to me why I was singled out by the Treasurer as I had no role in the bill’s demise other than my no vote, which I cast after every single other legislator had already voted. I did not discuss the bill with Representative Cardenas, or any other member for that matter, except for the Rules Committee chairman in order to move the bill forward. 5-18-18-briefs Ask any member of the House – I certainly didn’t coordinate any effort to defeat it. I hope the Treasurer was simply misinformed rather than blatantly lying about me. The truth is the bill simply could not overcome its deficiencies. “Instead of throwing a temper tantrum and demonstrating a remarkable lack of professionalism and class, I’d suggest that the Maricopa County Treasurer’s Office advocate for seniors in a way that’s actually constitutional and palatable to more than a handful of members of the Legislature. Or maybe stay out of policymaking altogether – he’s obviously not very good at it.”

boe jamesActivist Boe James: The Primary Property Tax election is over and I have heard a number of stories of people who were away and did not get their mail-in ballots.   By law, Early Ballots are not forwarded by the Post Office, so if you will be out of town and want to participate in the election, you need to send a signed letter to the Maricopa County Recorder, at 111 S. 3rd Ave., Phoenix, AZ 85003 stating your name, your current address, your date of birth, and Voter ID # (if known) and the address to which you want the ballot sent.  It must have a written signature that can be matched with that on the voter registration card on file.

If you are not on the Permanent Early Voter List and want a mail-in ballot, you can request an early ballot for the upcoming August 28th primary election by phone or mail.  Call 602-506-1511, Mon-Fri between 8 a and 5 pm. to do so by phone or send the written request to the address listed above.  Don't lose out on your right (duty) to cast an informed ballot.

Victor-Riches - goldwater instituteVictor Riches, President & CEO Goldwater Institute: Congress just sent federal legislation to President Trump that will protect your Right to Try if you have a terminal disease. A few minutes ago, the U.S. House of Representatives voted 250-169 to join the Senate in protecting the right of terminal patients who want to use medicines awaiting final approval from the Food and Drug Administration. The President repeatedly called on Congress to send him this legislation, and he’s expected to sign it within a few days.
Just five years ago, we at the Goldwater Institute had a thought: Why are terminally ill Americans denied the freedom to try cutting-edge medicines that might save their lives, just because those medications are still years away from being sold on the open market? We were told this was an impossible dream. That the FDA zealously guarded an exclusive power to decide when anyone can try a new medicine. That Washington politicians and federal courts were too heavily invested in promoting the FDA’s authority and would not force the agency to stand down.
Our response? The Founding Fathers never viewed the federal government as the only source or protector of our liberties. Under the U.S. Constitution, all 50 states have the authority and the duty to protect your freedom. With your enthusiastic support, we traveled from state capital to state capital to talk about this fundamental principle of healthcare freedom. With your help, we built a grassroots bipartisan coalition of doctors, of healthcare advocates, of patients and their loved ones. From California to Florida, 40 states listened to our coalition and acted to protect the Right to Try. This national momentum opened Washington’s eyes to what can be accomplished when you work to advance freedom instead of stripping liberty away. Soon, our dream of protecting the Right to Try for every American will be reality. And this is the only the beginning. We are working in other ways to protect your freedom to healthcare … Your freedom to work in the occupation of your choice … Your freedom to speak and to own property and to pursue happiness.But those are stories for another day. Today, I just want say “thank you” for your unwavering faith in our vision for protecting your Right to Try.

boe jamesActivist Boe James: "Memorial Day: This week marks the end of the school year and for many the start of summer. Congratulations to all the seniors who graduate on Friday and who are now entering the adult world of jobs or college. It is a time to for them to reflect on the future and the past. This coming weekend is not only the beginning of summer, it is also Memorial Day weekend. Memorial Day is a solemn day when we commemorate and honor our war dead. Originally it was called Decoration Day and ladies (mostly) went to the military cemeteries and laid (or scattered) flowers on the graves of Civil War veterans after listening to speeches. Today the speeches continue as do the laying of flowers at the graves of military veterans at cemeteries across the nation. This weekend might be a good time for everyone, not just the recent graduates, to reflect on the freedoms we all enjoy and upon the brave soldiers, Sailors, Marines and airmen who died so we can have those freedoms.
A Memorial Day ceremony will be held at 9 am, on Memorial Day, Mon, May 28th at the Veterans Memorial on the south side of Fountain Park. American Legion Post 58 is the lead for the ceremony. Traditionally local Veterans Service Organizations (VSOs) (American Legion Post 58, Veterans of Foreign Wars [VFW] Post 7507, Marine Corps League Detachment 1439 and American Veterans [AmVets] Post 7) participate. Fountain Hills has always shown appreciation and support for veterans and active duty military, from buying and wearing Red Shirts, donating to VSOs for Poppies, to contributing to worthy causes and to attendance at events. I hope to see many friends and neighbors at the Memorial on Monday morning."

ELECTED OFFICALS SPEAK OUT

Andy BiggsCongressman Andy Biggs: The U.S. House has passed S. 204 - the Trickett Wendler, Frank Mongiello, Jordan McLinn, and Matthew Bellina Right to Try Act of 2017. Congressman Biggs, the sponsor of the House version, released the following statement: “After months of negotiations and hard work, Congress passed the Right to Try bill, which will be sent to President Trump’s desk. This is an enormous accomplishment that demonstrates the bipartisan efforts of Members of Congress. Our legislation will give significant hope to many Americans facing terminal illnesses. Right to Try will remain the law of the land long after many of my colleagues and I leave these halls. That’s a legacy I am honored to be associated with. I’m thankful to President Trump, Vice President Pence, Senator Johnson, Congressman Fitzpatrick, and all of the advocates who worked tirelessly to send this bill across the finish line, including former Congressman Matt Salmon, who championed Right to Try during his tenure in Congress. I’m grateful for my colleagues who put people before politics to approve this legislation. We gave countless Americans hope, and now the law is on its way to President Trump for his signature.” U.S. House Sends Right to Try Bill to President Trump's Desk

DiCiccio headshotPhoenix City Councilman Sal DiCiccio: In less than one week, Phoenix will finally focus on the priorities our citizens have been demanding: more police and a permanent fix for our crumbling roads. There has not been one single meeting this year at the city of Phoenix focused on fixing our roads and hiring more police to protect our families. I have been working with Councilwoman Thelda WilliamsCouncilwoman Thelda Williams and others to put together and advance a plan that will take monies from light rail expansion and put it into hiring more police and fixing our roads. Our roads are in shambles, our police are understaffed and response times are suffering. These are the core functions of local government, and it's time to refocus our energy and resources on delivering the basic services our citizens need. We don't need to spend $10 million studying garbage, pay over $200,000 for a guy to do some plagiarizing, the dole out millions more every year on lobbying and memberships. We don't need an overpriced streetcar expansion when the single greatest "achievement" of the current system is spreading crime throughout the city. With new leadership, it is time to truly move Phoenix forward by refocusing on the most basic responsibilities of local government. It's unfortunate that we've had to wait this long to get back to the basics of good government, but I am hopeful that the time for Phoenix to take on our challenges and once again be reborn from the ashes is at hand. - Councilman, District 6 602-262-7491 council.district.6@phoenix.gov

Paul Gosar 2016 

CD4 Congressman Paul Gosar on Monday evening became the first sitting GOP member of the House of Representatives to publicly call for the removal of House Speaker Paul Ryan now, rather than on Ryan’s planned schedule post-election, during an interview on Breitbart News Tonight on SiriusXM. Revolt-Underway-Rep-Paul-Gosar-Calls-For-Paul-Ryan-Removal-As-Speaker-Replacement-With-Jim-Jordan


Andy BiggsCongressman Andy Biggs: “Since the 2016 campaign, President Trump has called on our allies to pay their share of defense costs that are commensurate with their economic resources and security environments. From United Nations to NATO spending, the United States spends more than its fair share and takes on the overwhelming responsibility to protect the world. I agree with President Trump’s National Security Strategy that calls on our allies to pay their share of the expense to maintain these defense alliances. For the second year in a row, I submitted the ‘Audit the Pentagon’ amendment. Military success requires military spending; however, in order to assure that our warriors are properly trained and equipped, the Defense Department must ensure that taxpayer dollars are utilized wisely and efficiently. All government departments and agencies should be audited, and I will continue to work toward this goal.” Congressman Biggs Submits Two Amendments to the FY 2019 NDAA

Andy Biggs Congressman Andy Biggs: Last week, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy announced that S. 204 - the Trickett Wendler, Frank Mongiello, Jordan McLinn, and Matthew Bellina Right to Try Act of 2017 would be considered by the House of Representatives this week. Biggs said, “S. 204 passed the Senate last summer unanimously, and I am happy that the House will be voting on this legislation later this week. Right to Try is a bipartisan law that will give immediate hope to countless men, women, and children facing terminal illnesses. I’m thankful to President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, Senator Ron Johnson, Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick, many of my colleagues, and hundreds of advocates across the nation for their perseverance with this bill. I ask my colleagues to support S. 204 when it comes to the floor this week.” Congressman Biggs' Statement on Upcoming Right to Try Vote in House
