Chris DeRose - clerk of the courtChris DeRose has been appointed Clerk of the Superior Court in Maricopa County by Gov Doug Ducey. DeRose was appointed on March 22, 2018 and because retired Clerk Michael Jeanes’ elected term ends in January 2019, Chris will complete Michael’s current term of office. A candidate will be elected Clerk in November of 2018 to begin a four-year term in January 2019. Because the superior court is one state court placed in each of the 15 counties, the Clerk of the Superior Court runs on the election cycle of statewide elected officials, rather than the cycle of county elected officials. This is also why the governor makes midterm appointments, rather than the county board of supervisors. As an attorney, he was previously Senior Litigation Counsel to the Arizona Attorney General, trying 47 cases in front of the Court of Appeals and arguing twice before the state Supreme Court. He is a former professor of Constitutional, International, and Election Law, and was voted “Law Professor of the Year” by his students. For the new Clerk’s biography, see the Clerk’s website at

Rick Thomas - College Reps United 480-437-4018Thomas says "Although I met a wonderful group of people, my friends and I were dissatisfied with the current state of conservative leadership and activism on campus.

In January of this year we created the College Republicans United which has since grown to be the largest conservative student organization on campus."

clyde bowmanArizona American African Republican Committee Chairman Rev Clyde Bowen: Today in History 4/8, The United States Senate passed 38-6, the 13th Amendment to the Constitution abolishing Slavery ( once Legal Human Trafficking.) The Amendment was ratified and adopted in December 1865. To see pictures of the Bad Old Days go to...Bad old Days - Slavery THANKS Trump Administration & DOJ,

Dale GohrDale Gohr of Clarkdale: I haven’t seen the extensive private and public property damage that was prevalent in the Occupy Wall Street or Black Lives Matter debacles. I participated in two nationwide organizations that have actually legally demonstrated in accordance with the parameters designated in the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. The first, a solidly Christian Men’s Group, filled sports arenas around the country filling stadiums to overflowing in Denver, Fresno, Dallas, and Phoenix, when Promise Keepers gathered well-over a million self-funded men. There were no incidence of private or public property damage, violent behavior or unauthorized vehicle or pedestrian traffic delays caused by or on behalf of any of the Promise Keepers. And the areas were left cleaned-up better than they were when the Promise Keepers arrived. The second is the TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party that fully shares the law-abiding and property respecting attributes with Promise Keepers. The liberal politicians, Hollywood elitists and the mainstream media had a tendency to mock or ignore all the good from these organizations. Former President Obama called TEA Party members “domestic terrorists”, when we have not killed anyone, nor have we damaged any private or public property.

     To the organizers of the student led protest/demonstration. Were each of you responsible for your own narrative, travel and accommodation expenses? Do you really want and expect your demands to be met? What are you actually saying when you insist on a requirement for gun ownership to be a minimum age 21? Are you saying that anyone under 21 is not mature enough to handle the responsibility? If so; our legal age for an adult to handle such a very dangerous weapon as “voting” should be raised from 18 to 21. Do not kid yourself; voting is a weapon; albeit having been treated in such a lackluster fashion as it has been over the years; the danger is unrecognized by the majority of eligible voters in the US today. I have not heard of any damage or clean-up costs associated with your student led protests but I am as sure your groups do not come close to the legitimate standards demonstrated by the Promise Keepers and TEA Party -- the majority of whom I’m sure disagree with your stance on gun control especially without you researching existing laws and the slipshod non-enforcement of laws in any mass shooting. I do not know of any demands or suggestions being made by the hierarchy of either PK or TP about housekeeping or cleanliness standards, it was just respecting property. Engage your own mind, before speaking or acting on behalf of someone else’s opinion.
