The Conservative's Corner

2018 Scrum

As you know, Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin has established a reputation as a committed reformer and one of America’s most innovative governors.

And today I’m proud to announce that he has endorsed my candidacy for governor of Arizona, as reported in an article by The Washington Post, linked here. ducey walker

Governor Walker’s fights to revive Wisconsin’s economy became a national story in 2012, when special interests attempted to recall him. As a result of his successful fight, Gov. Walker has developed a national grassroots following and is a hero to conservatives all across the country.

Here’s his statement:

“Doug Ducey demonstrates the kind of conservative, common-sense leadership that our party needs in Arizona. He’s not afraid of taking on tough challenges, and that’s why I know he’d be a great Governor.”

I’m grateful for his support and am honored that he decided to endorse my candidacy. It’s another sign of the momentum we’re building, and I’m confident we’re entering the summer months in strong shape to win the primary in August!

Thank you,


Paid for by Ducey 2014

Dear Friends:

I turned in my nominating papers and 1,727 petition signatures (1000 are required) to the City Clerk to get my name on the ballot for City Council. Thanks to all of my supporters who collected so many signatures for me! kathy littlefield

Another piece of good news - in less than a week we have found good homes for 100 of my campaign yard signs! Not to worry, we still have plenty more available, if you want one for your yard (or for your friends, neighbors or relatives) you can pick them up at your convenience from our front porch at 8926 E. Sheena Drive, 85260. Or, we will get as many as you can use delivered to you. If you can volunteer to help me distribute yard signs in your neighborhood that would be great!

If you have any questions, would like more information about my campaign or would like to help, my web site is and my phone # is 480-951-2549. Thanks for helping me to be Your Voice On City Council.

“Shawnna will be a prominent voice for families and business across Arizona," said Supervisor Chucri. "She is dedicated to K-12 education policy and knows what it takes to make sure our children have opportunities to receive the best education. As a county supervisor, I understand the value of working with individuals in our State Legislature who are not only passionate, but understand the need for a common sense approach when it comes to regulatory burdens, smart tax policy and making Arizona competitive. Shawnna will represent the Arizona taxpayer well and I look forward to working with her once she is elected.”

“I am honored to have Mr. Chucri’s endorsement,” stated Bolick. “Steve and I share many conservative beliefs including the need for more government efficiency, transparency and accountability at all levels of government. Steve is a hard worker and a terrific public servant who uses common sense to resolve problems. Together, I know being prudent with our constituents’ limited resources will further help us tackle streamlining the permitting and regulatory processes in order to create the best business climate. I look forward to working with Steve to further these efforts at the local and state levels. As an active communicator I believe we will also make a great team.”

PARADISE VALLEY, Ariz.) He made history as Paradise Valley's first directly elected mayor. He served the community for 25 years. As Mayor and as a member of the Town Council, Scott LeMarr navigated Paradise Valley through good times and challenging times. His leadership helped the community emerge from the recession without massive debt. Now, with Mayor LeMarr not seeking reelection he is endorsing Vice Mayor Michael Collins for the Mayor's post in the upcoming August 26th primary election, which is an all mail-in ballot.collins lemarr

Mayor LeMarr made the endorsement May 7th during the formal launch of Collins' campaign. Mayor LeMarr states, "I was proud to introduce and endorse Michael Collins as he begins his campaign. There are still a number of important goals to accomplish before my term ends in January. My work is far from over. I want to make sure our next mayor will continue that work. I believe that person should be Michael Collins. It's my hope that Michael Collins pushes back on needless density grabs by developers to preserve that which makes Paradise Valley unique. Michael is a consensus builder who understands the delicate balance of neighborhood preservation, building a strong local economy, and fiscal responsibility. He is committed to keeping Paradise Valley as Arizona's finest community."

Shawnna Bolick, Republican candidate for Arizona House of Representatives in Legislative District 28, received the endorsement of former Congressman Ben Quayle.shana

“In politics, there are talkers and there are doers. Shawnna is a doer and that is why I proudly endorse her candidacy for our legislative district. I have seen Shawnna’s passion for education reform that will allow our students to reach their full potential. She believes that all children should have access to a top notch education, because it is the key to a prosperous future. This dedication was also evidenced when Shawnna successfully mobilized a broad coalition of parents at her son's school that resulted in tens of thousands of dollars for classroom grants. Shawnna's keen ability to bring stakeholders together will be an enormous asset in our state legislature. Arizona can lead into the 21st century, but we need to elect people like Shawnna to make that a reality.”

“It is an absolute pleasure to receive Mr. Quayle’s endorsement,” declared Bolick. “Ben represented our Congressional district well during his brief tenure in DC. After Ben was elected I worked with him and his office on issues that might affect charter school expansion and he came to the table prepared. He truly understood the need for local autonomy and governance in our educational system. He also has a keen ear for small business needs and wasn’t afraid to take on President Obama. We need more elected officials willing to protect the states from further federal overreach.”
