As a member of the Gilbert Town Council, I join with other current and former elected officials who fully endorse Ron Bellus for the Gilbert School Board. We understand the importance of building relationships when working with one another in the governing process. Those relationships aren’t created overnight; it takes time to build trust and mutual respect.
I wish to rebut Mr. Romley’s plea to elect Doug Ducey for governor. (East Valley Tribune, Oct. 12). He does not speak for me and many other veterans.
The next month promises to bring out lots of mud, baseless accusations and partisan attacks as we move toward the Nov. 4 election. Despite the polls, the campaign for governor should even not be close.
As a registered Republican one of the biggest things that worries me about Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug Ducey is his climbing into political bed with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Why would a guy seek out the support and endorsement form a sheriff who is under federal scrutiny and court ordered regulation, has been shown to be an ineffective sheriff who blew off hundreds of cases involving rapes and child molests, has cost the taxpayers of Maricopa County well over $100 million dollars in misspent jail tax funds, has 30,000 unserved felony arrest warrants in his files, has cost us tens of millions of dollars related to lawsuits stemming from prisoners being abused and killed in his jail and who spent the last decade alienating Hispanics on both sides of the border?

Arizona needs a leader who will stand up for veterans. Our men and women in uniform are coming home in droves. Phoenix has been the eye of storm in the VA scandal. We just committed to fight another conflict in Iraq. Now more than ever, we need a leader who provides real solutions for our community’s veteran population.

What is the big deal about public education these days? Does it really have an effect on my life if I don’t have children attending the public schools? The Justice Policy Institute issued a report in 2007 on Education and Public Safety. Research results found that “a 5-percent increase in male high school graduation rates would produce an annual savings (in the state) of almost $5 billion in crime-related expenses.” Are you aware that the Arizona high school graduation rate has fallen below the national average? Public Safety is the main concern of police departments across the state. Who, then, did the Arizona Police Association choose to endorse for Gilbert School Board? Jill Humpherys and Charles Santa Cruz.
A proposal asking voters to hike the pay of state legislators by $11,000 a year is getting a decidedly cool reception from Gov. Jan Brewer — as is her own party's nominee for state superintendent of public instruction.
The Father of our Country on the Gilbert School Board? George Washington?

It took only six words to propel me firmly into The Sandwich Generation. Notably, those words were not “I’d like fries with that, please.”
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.

“Judging by all his vacations and rounds of golf this year alone, I’d say Obama doesn’t give a rip about all the violence in the Middle East, or the fact that the Islamic terrorists want a modern-day Holocaust.”
Unable to get Jan Brewer's endorsement for himself, Doug Ducey is now angling to deter the governor from spending her own political funds to help elect Scott Smith.
