After attending several Payson School Board meetings, I decided to speak out. Something that a Payson Board member stated about the Gilbert School District got my blood up. See below for my public comment. It’s interesting to note that, atRead more

As you read this article, remember that every Town and City that taxes groceries gets an automatic raise. Cha-Ching! You get an automatic pay cut. Unless of course, you stop buying as much food.
Obama’s enduring legacies? The most lawless president in U.S. history and the most financially devastating to average American households.
Here’s a quote from the article:
"In January 1967, when the BLS started tracking this measure, the index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs was 38.1. As of last May, it was 234.572. By this January, it hit 240.006. By April, it hit 249.362. And, in May, it climbed to a record 252.832."

Please keep an eye on this issue! The federal government along with radical environmentalists are willing to destroy a multiple-generation operation and steal this rancher’s cattle over an "endangered" …………….desert tortoise.
YET, just 8 months ago the government and environmentalists planned to euthanize the desert tortoises, due to budget cuts in a refuge. See Government Plans to Euthanize hundreds of desert tortoises after budget cuts to Refuge.
The very same scenario is unfolding in Arizona, compliments of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) and radical environmentalsts who want to declare the Mexican wolf as endangered and release wolves across 15 Arizona counties. The gross economic output of the agricultural industry in the area is estimated to be $4.2 billion annually.
Send an email to both Clark County Sheriff Douglas Gillespie (Sheriff@lvmpd.com) and Governor Brian Sandoval and tell them to stand up against the BLM and order the federal government out of Clark County and out of Nevada. To contact Gov Sandoval, click HERERead more

by Jane Evans,
Shortly after the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) was signed into law by President Obama on March 23, 2010, I knew, as an insurance agent, that any health insurance plan written after that date would be subject to cancellation in 2014. Furthermore, if my customers made any changes to their plans after that date, they would no longer be considered “grandfathered” and their plans could also be cancelled. I knew, the insurance companies knew, and it is inconceivable that President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid didn’t know. They were the ones who wrote the Bill! Every time I heard President Obama or Nancy Pelosi say that “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan, PERIOD” I knew it wasn’t true. They are now trying to qualify what they promised over and over again, but words do mean something and the word “period” means “period”. The vulnerable Democrats in Congress are trying to distance themselves from this disastrous law like rats fleeing a sinking ship, but they voted for this bill in 2010, and they have continued to support it until now. Remember, every Republican voted against the Affordable Care Act. This bill was written by, and passed by a Democratic Congress and no matter how they try to spin the facts, the record stands.Read more
As of last night, November 5, at 9:47 pm, according to Maricopa County’s Election Results, it appears that many Maricopa County voters have tired of passing school district property tax overrides and school tax bonds. They rose up and said, "Enough! Get your fiscal house in order!"
It’s one thing to be on the correct side of an issue, but it takes teamwork, intelligence, hard work, integrity, and persistence to get the correct side presented to the public. The activists presenting their case in several East Valley school districts made themselves heard. From having worked with the No to the Override Gilbert group, I can tell you that they were outspent,. Their signs were stolen, vandalized, and sliced up. The Mayor of Gilbert and Town Council member Eddie Cook were against them. A group funded by organizations like Core Construction fought against them.
Not only did a dedicated core group of Gilbert residents fight off this override, but also a magnificent group of elderly people who regularly attend Randy Hatch’s Arizona Red Mountain Patriots battled. They live in Mesa, but are in the Gilbert School District and pay plenty in property taxes. They organized community meetings and encouraged their fellow seniors to Vote No!.
The following school district overrides and bond issues went down in defeat:
Unfortunately, Mesa and Phoenix continue going down the path of self-destruction. (Mesa Mayor Scott Smith has no business being the Governor of Arizona!)
Chandler’s override win is based on an extremely small margin of just 64 votes! This one definitely isn’t over.
Pinal County has reported that many of their school district overrides bit the dust, too.

To all Arizona Taxpayers and Parents:
Odds are good that your local school district is holding a budget override election today — Tuesday, November 5.
Before you vote, we strongly urge you read AFP-Arizona’s Guide to School District Overrides and Bond Measures. Here is a short URL: http://tinyurl.com/azoverride13.
Before voting for a budget override, AFP-Arizona urges taxpayers to find out how much money is already available within their districts, and how much money the district could already get into its classrooms, with current resources.Read more
