The Conservative's Corner
From Shawnna Bolick Campaign
“With so many serious challenges facing the State of Arizona, I support Shawnna Bolick for the Legislature 110%,” stated former Congressman Goldwater, Jr. “She has one of the sharpest minds of anyone I’ve met in Arizona politics. Her bold ideas in education reform and steadfast common sense are two things I admire most about Shawnna. She has the potential to help lead Arizona into a brighter future – one that is more self-reliant, and one that holds to its independent values that I love so much about this state. Shawnna’s pro-growth, free market, and fiscal conservative ideas are the ones this state needs to get our fiscal house in order. She will bring a fresh, yet bold and principled leadership the Republican Party lacks.”Read more
You may have heard me say before that in solving some of our greatest problems, I believe freedom and opportunity are the answer. Nowhere is this sentiment more clearly demonstrated than in the free enterprise system. It empowers individuals to earn their own success, however they define it for themselves. It is the antithesis of government handouts and overbearing social programs.
At its heart, the beauty of free enterprise is what drives many conservatives like me, which is why I am honored to have earned the endorsement of Arizona’s Free Enterprise Club PAC.Read more

By David N. Smith. 2014 Candidate for Scottsdale City Council
Last week, I became involved in a citizen initiative to save Scottsdale…pretty exciting stuff!
What it really involved was appealing to the Scottsdale City Council not to sell the historic little church building that now functions as the Community Design Studio.
You see, the city has a problem:
Depreciation in city assets continues at a pace of $100 million per year. But, because the Bond Election was defeated last year, there is very little new money for capital reinvestments. To his credit, City Manager Fritz Behring challenged his staff to find ways to consolidate employees into fewer city buildings. He believed some city buildings could be emptied, then sold to raise a token amount of money for new capital expenditures; the Community Design Studio was one of three buildings identified through this exercise.Read more
