The Conservative's Corner
In my opening comments at the recent City Council candidate forum hosted by Scottsdale Leadership I made it clear what the upcoming city election is really all about. In my closing comments I made it clear why I am running for Scottsdale City Council.
Voters need to know what is really happening in this election and how much is at stake for our beloved city. Please pass these videos on to as many of your friends, neighbors and relatives in Scottsdale as you can to help us get the word out.
There are three ways you can help me overcome all of this dark money being spent to defeat me. One of the best things you can do to help my campaign is to organize a meet-and-greet and invite your friends and neighbors to meet me and to learn about my platform. If you can hold one please contact me and we will help you organize it.Read more
Maricopa County Integrated Health System (MIHS) has proposed the third largest bond request in Arizona history.
Who pays? All property taxpayers in Maricopa County. The price tag?
As the committee organized to oppose Proposition 480 on the November ballot in Maricopa County, we want to provide you updates on our efforts to defeat this massive tax increase. Additionally, we want to ask for your support to defeat this request for a “blank check,” which comes during the most chaotic time for health care in our nation’s history. This proposal to raise our taxes to fund more government health care by tearing down the current Maricopa County Hospital and rebuild it with fewer beds, using your money, is certainly an issue each of us needs to pay special attention to as our ballots arrive in a week.
The No on Prop 480 campaign wants to highlight a discrepancy in the total cost. We previously used the $1.4 billion dollar figure as the total impact on Maricopa County taxpayers, based on initial interest projections. When the official ballot proposal arrived, we discovered that the cost to taxpayers is actually $1.6 billion dollars. That may not be much to the proponents who are trivializing the cost of Prop 480, but to put it in their terms, that rounding error is about 75,000 cups of coffee at Dunkin Donuts to the voters in Maricopa County.Read more
From the Mark Brnovich Campaign:
The Arizona Department of Financial Institutions (ADFI) exists to protect consumers and ensure “the safety and soundness of the financial services industry in Arizona.”
But, under Democrat Felecia Rotellini’s watch as agency Supervisor (2006-2009), the State of Arizona became Ground Zero for the kinds of mortgage fraud and lending scams that ultimately brought the entire housing market crashing down.
According to the Mortgage Asset Research Institute Fraud Index, a comprehensive measure of lending fraud, Arizona ranked 21st in the country for this kind of illegal activity in 2005. By the time Rotellini resigned from her post as financial watchdog for ADFI in summer 2009, Arizona’s rate of mortgage fraud had skyrocketed to 4th in the nation, trailing only Florida (1), New York (2) and California (3).Read more
Helping businesses create jobs has been a priority of mine since I originally took office. That’s why I have fought for reducing burdensome regulations, lowering taxes so businesses can reinvest and getting government out of the way of private enterprise.
I believe every Arizonan has a purpose and every Arizonan should have the opportunity to find rewarding employment. This philosophy has galvanized the support of the business community behind my campaign. I am being supported by the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, National Federation of Independent Business, AZ Association of REALTORS and countless business leaders. Here are what a few of them are saying about my candidacy:
“In recent decades, Arizona’s Governor has not finished his or her term for different reasons. Our Secretary of State is next in line of succession since Arizona does not have a Lieutenant Governor. It is important for the business community to pay close attention to this important race this year and support a strong candidate.
Michele Reagan served in the Arizona Senate and House of Representatives with great distinction. She has been a tireless leader and supporter of the business community, education, economic development and, as importantly, stood strong in the face of extreme agendas. No one else in the race has her proven track record.”

Rogers Calls on Sinema to Keep Her Promise Asks Her To Return Salary For Not Doing Her Job
In a desperate attempt to whitewash her Washington record, Krysten Sinema began airing an ad today that tried to gloss over her failings in Washington. In her ad, Sinema said Congress should not get paid if it doesn't do its job . . . something that found immediate support from candidate Wendy Rogers.
“I agree, I look forward to Kyrsten Sinema returning her salary to taxpayers for the past two years,” said Wendy Rogers. “Given that she has not voted for a single budget or offered a solution of her own - it's pretty clear she’s not doing her job. She should live up to her promise to return her pay.”
Sinema voted against the House Budget H. Con. Res. 96 on April 10th, 2014. She also voted against the Democratic Budget Alternative on the same day. A check of House sponsored bills also shows that she has never offered a budget of her own. Sinema also voted against a balanced budget that would have prevented Members of Congress from using taxpayer dollars to fly first class (Roll Call #88; 3/20/2013).Read more
