A $6 Million Arizona Department OF Transportation Project starting Monday, May 7, is creating a new US 160 bridge at Chinle Wash in far northeastern Arizona. Those using US 160 through the area should expect delays up to 20 minutes with this work underway at milepost 429, just west of Mexican Water on the Navajo Nation. A temporary traffic signal will have traffic alternating through one lane on the existing bridge. The new three-span bridge will be 280 feet long and nearly 9 feet wider than the current bridge. The project, which scheduled to finish by year’s end, also will realign the roadway and install new pavement markings, among other improvements. See azdot.gov/Projects  Northeast District Projects).

dave kopp  2AZ Citizens Defense League (AzCDL)chairman Dave Knopp: We thank everyone who contacted their Senators about HB 2172, HB 2212 and HCR 2002.  Your activism paid off!
HB 2212, which would extend the privilege of carrying firearms in Arizona, with certain limited exceptions, to any sworn and certified law enforcement officer employed by any jurisdiction (federal, tribal, state, local, etc.) in the U.S., passed out of the Senate and was sent to the Governor on May 3.  We have prepared an email for you to send to the Governor urging him to sign HB 2212.  You may send it as is or customize it with your own comments. 
Click here to send your email to the Governor.
On May 2, HB 2172, which would restrict universities and community colleges from prohibiting the possession of non-lethal weapons on campus, passed out of the Senate Committee of the Whole (COW) but failed a subsequent Third Read vote.  However, the Senate passed a motion for a "reconsideration" vote that will allow the full Senate to once again vote on HB 2172.  The following four Republicans joined with the Democrats to empower predators and keep college students defenseless by voting against HB 2172: Rick Gray (LD21), Kate Brophy McGee (LD28), Frank Pratt (LD8) and Bob Worsley (LD25). We have prepared an email for you to send to your Senator urging them to support HB 2172 during the reconsideration vote.  If you are in the districts of Senators Gray, Brophy McGee, Pratt or Worsley, it's very important that they hear from you. 
Click here to send your email to your Senator.
     HCR 2002, a proposed ballot measure that would remove the upper age limit for militia members, passed out of the House on February 26.  On March 27, it passed out of the Senate Committee of the Whole (COW) hearing.  It's been over a month since the COW hearing.  All that it needs is a Senate Third Read vote. 
Click here to send an email to your Senator urging them to contact the Leadership to schedule HCR 2002 for a Third Read Vote.
In other news, HB 2211, the AzCDL-requested bill which will add a personal exemption for firearms to the state's bankruptcy statutes, was signed by the Governor on April 12.  We thank everyone who contacted the Governor.  You made a difference!

michael gibbsActivist Michael Gibbs: As most of you know, last week the governor vetoed nearly a dozen bills sent to him by the state legislature. Why? To force them to consider his revised budget increasing school funding. He said he would not sign any other bills until they did so. The legislature did as the governor asked but now they want to get those bills turned into law. They could attempt to override the vetos but that requires a 2/3 vote of each body, something that may be difficult for some of the bills. Instead, both houses have amended their rules (again!) to permit those bills to be submitted again even though we are long past the normal deadline to drop new bills.
      AzCDL is pushing three of them in particular and needs your help to get them passed for a second time. These measures are currently in the Senate, so please contact your state Senator and urge them to support these bills.

Activist Stephen Sivigliano: Paraphrasing Rush (not using the exact words, for those in Rio Linda). The left always claims to be the champions for the blacks. In fact, it's exactly the opposite.  They claim to have passed the civil rights laws in the 60's.  Liars!  It was Republicans who rammed it through, with opposition from the left, especially southern dems.  Dimmycrat governors like Wallace, etc., vehemently defended segregation. They claim to have freed the slaves.  Liars!  It was Lincoln, with the help of other Republicans, who freed the slaves.  They claim to be responsible for all kinds of welfare for the little guys, especially blacks.  All they have done was to keep the blacks dependent on the fed., state, and local governments for their sustenance, in order to keep them in line, and keep voting democratic.  When anyone, like Kanye West strays from the plantation, they attack them in the media, using the typical words, like Uncle Tom.  They denounce the KKK, calling them extreme Republicans, when in fact, the KKK is the militant wing of the DEMOCRATS!  How much longer can the silent majority take all that crap before they step forward and turn around those lies?  So much for a Thursday rant. Have a nice day.

Activist Stephen Sivigliano- Food for thought: The Waffle House in Antioch, TN, murders resulted in four dead victims.  The truck sidewalk murders in Toronto produced 10 or more dead victims.  If the radicals are so intent on banning guns, why are they not trying to ban trucks, or all motor vehicles for that matter?  After all, they kill and injure more people than guns.  How many groups, (MADD, for example) are there that address the traffic casualty crisis?  Plenty.  Just

American Post-Gazette (Distributed by C O M M O N S E N S E in Arizona May 3, 2018) Just How Dumb Are Our Teachers? Arizona K-12 teachers were so easily duped by the radical #RedforEd leadership, you have to wonder how smart are these people? Google “easiest college majors.” Bestvalueschools.org reports that students entering education majors have the lowest SAT scores, yet still come out with the highest grades. Many classes are fairly simple since the major is geared toward working with children.

     Bestcolleges.org rank the five easiest majors: #5-Social work; #4-Music; #3-Secondary Education; #2-Elementary Education; and #1-Special Education. YahooFinance.com reports that an Education major is tenth, behind such mind-challenging majors as Art, Theater Arts, Liberal Studies, and the feminist favorite number one: Women’s Studies.

     MoneyWatch reported: “Slackers wanting to earn the country’s easiest college major, should major in education. It’s easy to get ‘A’s’. Maybe that’s why one out of 10 college graduates major in education. Research over the years has indicated that education majors entering college with the lowest average SAT scores, leave with the highest grades. Some academic evidence documenting easy A’s for future teachers goes back more than 50 years!”

     This explains a lot. The Arizona Capitol was the scene of over 50,000 red-shirted protesters demanding the governor and the legislature pay teachers more. These supposedly educated people are not even smart enough to know that the governor and the legislature do not set teacher salariesthat is the purview of local school boards. The money is sent to local school boards and they decide how that money is spent. But 50,000 of your closest friends getting together seemed like a good idea, so radical #RedforEd leaders joined with the union thugs running the Arizona Education Association, and descended on the Capitol and said, “Show me the money!”

     The Republican governor said, “OK, here’s a 20% raise (which he can’t really promise) by 2020.” The Republican-led legislature said, “OK, here’s a 20% raise (which they can’t really promise) by 2020.” And for good measure they threw in an extra half-billion dollars. That would put the average teacher salary at around $58,000 by 2020, up from their current $48,000. For comparison purposes, the average cop in Arizona earns $43,000. The protesters and their fellow lefties in the Democratic Party complained it wasn’t enough. There isn’t enough money in the entire state budget to satisfy socialists of all stripes.

     Nevertheless, the bill passed without much Democrat support. But here’s the catch, and why the intelligence level of teachers comes into question: as in the past, the money will be sent to the local districts. The local districts decide what, where, and how much will be spent. And, as in the past, when the local school boards and their overpaid buddies in district administration get their hands on the money and it doesn’t go to teacher raises as promised. What’s going to happen? These poorly educated, easily duped teachers are going to run down to the Capitol and protest for even more money. I’m not sure when they will be smart enough to learn where they need to protest. Apparently, some of them can’t even spell S-A-T. - J. Madison

 wes harris 1LD20 State Committeeman Wes Harris: These are and have been tumultuous times for the education of our children.  The events of the last six days are a case in point.  I have long maintained that though there are many problems in education, a review will reveal that it all starts with our Colleges of Education.  (See “Just How Dumb Are Our Teachers?” above, it, points directly at these institutions as the source of the problem.)  I recommend that you pick up a copy of The Smartest Kids In The World And How They Got That Way as it deals with this very problem.  It took a close look at the country of Finland that just 10 to 12 years ago was at the bottom of the world educational achievement scale.  Today they are number one.  How did they do this in such a short period?  They didn't do it like our Governor, Legislature and School Boards did this week...they took a step back and analyzed the problem and came to a conclusion that the fault lay with their Teacher's Colleges and they fixed it.  I suggest that we all consider this to be the solution to our stagnant grade scores and do likewise

Wes Harris, founder of the Original North Phoenix Tea Party, has been a registered Democrat, independent and now Republican. He says that while Tea Party activism had dropped off over the past two years, issues like health care and immigration are starting to draw people back.Wes Harris responds to Supt of Public Instruction candidate Frank Riggs: Frank Riggs And what of the Legislature, The Governor and the School Boards acquiescence to lawless tactics for these salary increases?  Are they to go unpunished?  How do these tactics differ from BLM and ATIFA?  What of the 820k students denied education for 6 days and counting?  What of their parents?  What about the Governor's usurpation of the just responsibility of local school governing boards to set salaries?  Do we really want the Legislature and the Governor to rest this responsibility away from Local Control?  Be careful what you wish for! Frankly, I feel like a lone wolf in the wilderness crying for law and order and everyone else, including you, are condoning lawlessness and praising the 70k teachers who took the law into their own hands and are guilty of breaching their individual contracts.  Is there no one that is sane in all of this?  Is no one willing, as President Reagan was, to fire them all for breach of contract and breach of existing statutes just because they are 'revered' teachers?  Do the ends really justify the means?  Do we expect to enforce only some laws but not all laws?  Do we bow to mob rule...as is clearly the case here?  Where is character among our elected representatives at all levels and those that would be elected?  Where is Principle?  Where is Law and Order?  Just because our teachers are "The Good Guys" do laws not apply to them?  There are lawful avenues that were available to them but they chose not to follow them?  Finally who funded all of those signs and Tee Shirts? Be careful of which 'band wagon' you jump on!

Frank Riggs 4Supt of Public Instruction Frank Riggs to LD20 State Committeeman Wes Harris: I'm sympathetic to the #RedForEd movement because teacher pay has been largely stagnant for a decade since the Great Recession (as it has with other public servants), but I strongly disagree with their partisan agenda and pressure tactics.Voting to strike and violating their contracts, after the governor's proposal but before the Legislature could act, was in bad faith. Here’s what I think we should do:

     1. Per-pupil funding should be indexed to student enrollment growth and inflation

     2. Administrative costs should be capped at 5% (to get more dollars into the classroom)

     3. No more unfunded education mandates at the federal and state levels

wes harris 3Furthermore, I think the governing boards of school districts and charter schools should make decisions about teacher compensation and benefits consistent with local control in K-12 education. I'm sympathetic to the #RedForEd movement because teacher pay has been largely stagnant for a decade since the Great Recession (as it has with other public servants), but I strongly disagree with their partisan agenda and pressure tactics. before the Legislature could act, was in bad faith. I support Gov. Ducey’s proposal to use additional state revenues to increase school funding and teacher pay while maintaining prudent budget reserves. I'm flatly opposed to the tax increases that have been proposed, including the one by Diane Douglas for a permanent 150% increase in the sales tax. Arizonans want more funding for schools and more transparency as to how schools use the funding. It’s the job of the Superintendent of Public Instruction and the Arizona Department of Education to efficiently manage the way we fund our schools and to account to taxpayers. That’s a job I’m ready to tackle.

Dale GohrDale Gohr of Clarkdale: Actions, Louder than Words – Teacher Protests. We’ll soon see about the actions of the educators -past situations have not fared well in my opinion:

1) If the Teachers obey the rules of civility that are implied; but not exactly specified in the First Amendment.

2) If the law enforcement agencies have the courage and commitment “enforce existing laws”.

3) If the taxpayers are going to be burdened with additional expenses because of the teachers protests.

Those three points should get my gripes out into the open; so, let’s go through them point-by-point:

1) The First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States (Also, known as the 1st of the 10 points of “The Bill of Rights”); allows for United States Citizens to “Peaceably Assemble” and “Petition the Government” for a “Redress of Grievances”.

a. The First Amendment does not allow for any “Property Damage; Public or Private”, any “Trashing of Property (Littering)”, or any “Unauthorized impeding of Traffic (Vehicle or Pedestrian)”; any of which are “Illegal and Prosecutable Activities”.

2) Any activity that is “Illegal” should result in “Arrests (individual or group)”.

a. The unwillingness or laxness in preforming these Arrests should result in punishment or termination of the available law enforcement officer and/or supervisor [whether elected, appointed or hired] those that “refused to enforce the legal statutes”; should be summarily “charged with dereliction of duty”.

3) The expenses incurred for any property damage, clean-up (liter or defacing), and administrative costs; including legal fees should be recovered from the participants of the protest(s) and/or the negligent officials.

The legitimate taxpayers of this nation should never be responsible for the actions of protesters and, if the Constitution is followed, they never will or would be. I know of only two groups (Promise-Keepers & The Tea Party), who have done public protest legitimately and both were viciously vilified by the mainstream news media and leftist politicians. The same media and politicians praised those that cost the taxpayers, insurance companies and private citizens tens of millions (Wisconsin Teachers, Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter, etc.). Unfortunately, the courage and commitment to actually enforce the Constitution; does not exist in today’s environment.

ELECTED OFFICIALS COMMENTARY

Doug Ducey 2015 2Gov Doug Ducey team: Following a marathon legislative session last night, legislators early this morning passed Governor Ducey’s 20% teacher pay raises as part of a larger education funding plan. The governor signed the legislation this morning around 6:00 a.m. calling it, “a great win for teachers and kids.” And it does it all without raising taxes. In addition to a 20% pay raise for Arizona teachers, Governor Ducey’s budget adds hundreds of millions of dollars for areas like classroom technology, new textbooks, improved school infrastructure and higher support staff pay. In addition to a 20% pay raise for Arizona teachers, Governor Ducey’s budget adds hundreds of millions of dollars for areas like classroom technology, new textbooks, improved school infrastructure and higher support staff pay. Here are the details of the education funding package:

· A 20% across the board pay increase for all Arizona teachers;

· $371 million to fully restore recession-era cuts and provide flexible funding to school districts;

· $1.8 million to fund career and technical education;

· $10 million for behavioral health specialists;

· $53 million for building renewal to improve school infrastructure; and

· $86 million over two years for construction of five new schools.

The Governor’s responsible plan brought both sides together, earning bipartisan support in the Legislature. Today is an historic day for Arizona, our schools, and our students and teachers. Please help spread the word by sharing this breaking news!

Diane Douglas Supt of EdArizona Superintendent of Public Instruction applauded the passage of the State Education budget today. “I want to commend the Legislature and the Governor for working hard, under difficult circumstances, to pass a budget that makes significant improvements for Arizona students and schools,” said Superintendent Douglas. “Many goals outlined in my State of Education address were achieved.” Fulfilling her state constitutional role, Superintendent Douglas delivered her Arizona State of Education address last January. Among the goals she outlined in the address were:

· Acting sooner rather than later on the expiration of Prop 301 to avoid a fiscal cliff

· Getting better pay for teachers – she proposed an eleven-percent (11%) increase

· Making sure schools have funding for facilities

· Vital ongoing IT funding for the state student information system AZEDS.

“Prop 301 was extended in a bi-partisan fashion, avoiding a fiscal cliff. Teachers will see a twenty-percent (20%) pay increase over the next three years. There will also be a more than three-hundred and fifty million dollar ($ 350 Million)  increase to the additional assistance fund – that helps schools with facilities and raises for support staff. We also have ongoing IT finding, that is needed to maintain our student information system. These were all important victories for our students and schools,” said Douglas.“Over the past several years,” observed Douglas, “we have turned the large ship of Arizona Education in a better direction. Common Core standards have been replaced.  Teachers and support staff will be getting meaningful raises. There will be more money for facilities. Most of our IT systems have been moved into the twenty-first century.

Make no mistake, there is still much work to do,” continued Douglas. “We are in the process of updating our Science and Social Science and History standards.  Our School Finance IT system is on an operating system that is antiquated and must be addressed. I am optimistic that those are challenges we can meet in the future. I feel we have made great strides towards the world class education system we want and that Arizona parents and students deserve.”
