PHOENIX — Flagstaff Mayor Jerry Nabours has endorsed Proposition 123 citing that the measure will help Flagstaff schools succeed in the future. 

“Personally, I think Prop 123 is the right thing for Flagstaff and the state," Flagstaff Mayor Jerry Nabours said. "In the last four years the city of Flagstaff has purchased $8.1 million of state trust land to preserve as open space. It is great to see that money invested in the land trust, and see some of that money come back to our schools in Flagstaff and other schools around the state. Prop 123 will distribute 3.5 billion dollars to teachers and students without raising taxes.  I'm voting yes."

By Tucson for Romney

Dear Friend,

If you have already voted in the Arizona 2016 Republican Presidential Primary, you can ignore this email.

I am surprised that I am dusting off this email address, but after listening to Mitt Romney and watching what has happened, I felt it time to make a suggestion to my many friends.

Like you, I have been wondering how to make my vote count.

Arizona is a Winner-Take-All state, meaning whoever wins the popular vote will receive all 58 of the delegates.  There is no splitting of the delegate votes in Arizona.  It appears that means the vote will come down to one of two candidates.

I am waiting for March 16th, the day after the Ohio Primary to make my final decision.

If you still have your ballot, and if Mr. Trump is the front-runner, I encourage you to vote for the Number Two candidate on March 16th as an early ballot voter, or on March 22nd at the Arizona polls.

As Governor Romney has said, we are voting for the leader of the free world, and either Senator Cruz, Senator Rubio, or Governor Kasich will be an excellent choice.

Thank you.

By Let's Vote Yes For Arizona School In Support of Prop 123

PHOENIX — The Arizona Tax Research Association (ATRA) today endorsed Proposition 123 citing that the initiative would resolve a longstanding education lawsuit in the state and get money to school districts now while protecting taxpayers.

“The Arizona Supreme Court’s decision in the Cave Creek lawsuit exposed taxpayers to extraordinary financial liabilities just as the state budget was recovering from the Great Recession,” Kevin McCarthy, president of the Arizona Tax Research Association said. “Prop 123 settles this lawsuit in a manner that is fair to taxpayers as well as Arizona K-12 schools. The use of the State Land Trust to assist in funding the settlement provides state policymakers ample time to develop a multi-year plan to absorb these costs into the state budget in 2026.”

“The Arizona Tax Research Association’s endorsement reinforces our pitch to voters that we are protecting taxpayers while ensuring K-12 public schools have stability over the next decade,” Sharon Harper, chairman of the Let’s Vote Yes for Arizona Schools said. “Proposition 123 is the solution we need to fund our schools now to ensure teachers and students get the resources they need to succeed.

I'm proud to endorse my good friend John Kasich for President of the United States.

John knows that leadership is about serving people and he has a record of getting results. That's exactly what's needed in America right now.

Please join the team today and show your support for John's campaign.

He not only led the effort to balance America's budget for the first time since men walked on the moon, but he turned a $8 billion budget shortfall in Ohio into a $2 billion surplus.

Our country faces tremendous challenges right now but John knows, like I do, that it is still the greatest country in the world - no matter what anyone else says. He's offering real, common-sense solutions to our greatest challenges.

It's time to roll up our sleeves and do our part. Join me today and support John Kasich for President of the United States!

Sincerely,

Arnold Schwarzenegger
Former Governor of California

As you probably know, my family has deep roots in Southern Scottsdale – for most of 30 years we operated a Chevrolet dealership on the corner of Scottsdale and McDowell Roads.

I have taken a special interest in helping revitalize the area and am proud of the progress being made -- including the springing up of new businesses and the sprucing up of older neighborhoods. The restoration of Southern Scottsdale has been remarkable.

It is an ongoing process.  So I want to express my appreciation to those who are investing in improving the area.  Thank you for all that you are doing.
