I support Andrew Walter for Congress in Congressional District 9 because he has the best chance to defeat the current Democrat, Kyrsten Sinema. This year’s congressional election is very important to me, and I am committed to the person who can stand up to Kyrsten’s far-left agenda. Andrew’s leadership abilities are evidenced by leading ASU football (2000-2004) and from his NFL career. His strength of character will assure a tough, yet successful fight against the Sinema campaign this fall.
Political signs lining the streets declare the names and goals of candidates for several offices in the state of Arizona but across the East Valley and Ahwatukee Foothills, there are also signs calling some incumbent Republican legislators “liberal.”
To answer Bill Richardson’s two main questions, “Do we keep Democrat Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema to represent us or do we elect someone else?” And, “Are Rogers and Walter the best Republicans can come up with to challenge Sinema in CD 9?”
The beginning of the school year provides opportunities for fresh ideas and positive changes to enhance learning experiences for all children. During the spring and summer, the Kyrene School District Governing Board and district leaders were hard at work considering ideas that would impact the budget for the 2014-15 school year. The final budget approved on July 8 was not only balanced, it also represents an investment in spending for whole-child programs such as art, music, physical education, library, math/literacy coaches who provide support and a change to the start times for Kyrene middle schools. This budget also demonstrates the board’s commitment to invest in one of our most valuable resources — teachers and staff who received a cost of living increase.
District 18 Republican state senate candidates Jeff Dial and Tom Morrissey discussed Common Core standards, Medicaid, job growth and legislative pay increase during a forum hosted by the East Valley Tribune on July 11.
Arizona schools chief John Huppenthal sparred with his Republican primary challenger, Diane Douglas, Tuesday evening in a debate that focused on the state's new Common Core school standards but also touched on anonymous blog posts Huppenthal made that forced him to apologize.
Though the calendar won’t announce the official arrival of summer for a few more weeks, the Arizona heat already is settling in. Blasting the A/C may sound like a great plan, but it’s not so great for your energy use — or your wallet. From the air conditioner to the washing machine, a few adjustments can make a huge difference on your home and the environment. The grass will always be greener on your side of the fence with a little inspiration from these energy-saving tips.
Arizona’s forests are in poor health. They’re overgrown, and without action, catastrophic fires are almost a certainty — putting the state’s physical beauty, economic vitality and water supplies at risk.
So, the latest expose to come out about Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal is that he trolls on both liberal and conservative blogs using the names Thucydides and Falcon 9, defending none other than (drum roll please) John Huppenthal! And many of the comments can be traced back to the IP address of the Arizona Department of Education. WOW!
