“Racism means lots of things to different people. The news is full of racism articles, where certain people are saying a white cop shooting a black kid is racist. Is it not just as racist to assume that the white cop is guilty of murder and racism before all the facts are in?”
Democrat Fred DuVal and Republican Doug Ducey sparred on several issues during their first gubernatorial debate Wednesday in Chandler.
The first debate between gubernatorial candidates Republican Doug Ducey and Democrat Fred DuVal was what I expected it to be. Their positions on education and jobs are quite well known. Both spoke well, dressed alike and were pleasant. It was what was to be expected.

People send checks to me every day. Sometimes they are for hundreds of dollars. Other times, they’re written for more than $5,000. But I can’t cash them. And neither can the people who send them to me.
The outcome of the race for governor could turn on who can scare the middle class more, especially over the high cost of college.

Doug Ducey and Christine Jones are occupied in convincing Arizona that “immigration” is the only issue facing our Grand Canyon State. Both candidates desire to let President Obama know their personal feelings, and one (Christine Jones) thinks she can simply send the president of the United States an invoice to pay for a fence and more border patrol agents. The endorsement of Joe Arpaio ranting for Doug Ducey — a son of a police officer with no political background — indicates that the “Go Daddy Mama” and the “ice cream man” should not lead our state. On the other side of the fence, stands tall, a quiet gentleman, Scott Smith, who was Mesa’s long-term mayor; a leader served with excellence. This is what he did for Mesa as mayor: improved and revitalized Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport; in our worse economic recession, gathered the Chicago Cubs to remain in Mesa — in as much constructed a new baseball stadium; increased funding for Mesa’s metro rail system, linking to other transfer points for the East Valley; and negotiated with Apple to take over a new facility employing hundreds of new jobs. Smith was elected by President Obama to chair as president of the Conference for Mayors. Scott Smith is a proven leader; Arizonans can rest at ease while Smith governs our state. I moved into Mesa in 2008 — the worst time in our economy. Since I am able to see the improvements in Mesa, that leads me to believe a man such as Scott Smith will satisfy every requirement as Arizona’s next governor.
The Citizens Clean Elections Commission on Thursday threw out separate complaints alleging collusion between two gubernatorial candidates and independent groups trying to defeat their foes.
I am a member of the fastest growing political party in Arizona, having recently become second largest in the state, and quickly threatening to become number one.
Every night, my phone rings with electoral candidates making promises. My mail box is full of fliers trying to scare me with how wrong their opponent is. What I’m not seeing is the candidates stating how they will vote on issues that actually affect the lives of children and families in our state. Arizona ranks 46th in the nation on overall conditions for children, but unfortunately, this does not seem to be a priority for our elected officials. The best predictor of Arizona’s economic future is how our children are being treated today. It’s time for someone with courage, and a real heart for our children to be elected to shape Arizona’s future. We really need to ask each candidate: “How will you be the voice for children and make sure they have the opportunity to succeed?”
Republican gubernatorial hopefuls all promised Tuesday night to help the state's economic recovery but were divided on the question of how best to do that.
