Babeu, Voyles, Chase – campaign finance law investigation requested in Pinal County Race for failing to disclose

Potential violations of Arizona campaign finance laws may have occurred with the Paul Babeu for Sheriff Committee and involve the campaigns of Lando Voyles and Cheryl Chase.  A complaint asking for investigation was filed this morning with the Pinal County Attorney’s office, in accordance with Arizona law.

Has $235,072 cash on hand for Congressional campaign Sheriff Paul Babeu today announced his fundraising totals for the first 68 days of his campaign for Congress, which included Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Eve and ended January 1st, 2012. While in the exploratory phase, without a single fundraising event, and without a final Congressional district, Sheriff Babeu raised $263,302 from 1,100 donors. This represents an estimated 300 new donors. The Sheriff has over 8,000 unique donors, meaning a significant reservoir of support not yet tapped for the Congressional race.

The Republican-controlled Arizona Legislature wants a federal court to immediately block use of congressional district maps created by the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission. The Legislature led by Senate President Andy Biggs and House Speaker Andy Tobin sued in June 2012. Their lawyers asked for a preliminary injunction in a filing Friday.

On Friday and Saturday, November 15-16, 2013, The Pinal County Democratic Party will host the Arizona Democratic Party’s quarterly State Committee meeting in Maricopa, AZ at the Maricopa High School. As a part of the weekend activities, The Pinal County Democrats will also be holding a fund raising activity saluting “Women Who Rock”.

Believe it or not, the 2014 campaign cycle will soon be here.  Secretary of State Ken Bennett will be hosting a Campaign Finance Seminar on Thursday, December 12, from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM. The seminar will take place at Pinal County's renovated 1891 Courthouse, 135 North Pinal Street, inside the Ironwood Conference Room. 

  Today, Derek Arnson, candidate for Pinal County sheriff, released the following statement in response to the United States Supreme Court’s decision to uphold a major component of Arizona’s immigration law, SB 1070, that allows law enforcement officials to determine the immigration status of individuals that have been stopped for questioning or arrest:

Important to vote in the primary because some races are decided there The Arizona primary election, the precursor to the general election in November, is right around the corner. Voters will go to the polls on Tuesday, Aug. 28, to vote in the primary, the results of which will help narrow their political party’s candidates for the offices being decided in the general election.

  On Thursday, February 20, 2014, the Arizona Senate approved SB 1062 the so-called exercise of religion: State Action Act.  It has been suggested that this action was necessary to avoid situations whereby a business owner may be compelled socially or even legally to provide services to individuals or entities, in direct affront to ones religious belief whether real or inferred.  What we stand here today to say is this action, if approved by the Governor, would be discriminatory and further degrades the State of Arizona’s reputation. 

Pinal County Supervisor and Chairman of the Board Pete Rios is seeking a second term as Supervisor for District 1.  Rios has had a long and illustrious career in both the Arizona State Legislature, where he served as President of the Senate and as Supervisor where he has been Chairman of the Board for the past two years.   

Candidates for the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, the Arizona Corporation Commission, the Arizona Legislature and Maricopa County are scheduled to attend SRP PIC’s 2012 Political Picnic, a non-partisan event that is one of the state’s largest election-year rallies.  The old-fashioned political rally offers members of the print and broadcast media and SRP employees the opportunity to interview at one location many of the candidates for the Nov. 6 general election.

Come join us and meet your candidates On Saturday, June 23rd from 2-4PM your local and county candidates will be at the Apache Junction Court House at 575 N Idaho Rd We will meet inside the Court House.

An election law change that raised Arizona's campaign contribution limits also provided candidates with an unwanted and apparently unintended surprise. According to the Arizona Capitol Times, that surprise is a new requirement that candidates have separate campaign finance committees for the primary and general election elections.

Arizona’s Open Primary Means Independents Can Choose a Ballot Pinal County Recorder Laura Dean-Lytle says that people are still asking questions about the Open Primary law enacted by the voters in 1998. The law allows people who are registered as an Independent to request a Democrat, Republican, Green, or Americans Elect Party ballot, including early voting ballots.

Arizona’s Open Primary Means Independents Can Choose a Ballot and your vote counts during the upcoming Primary Election. If you are a registered voter in Pinal County and would like an early ballot, mailed to you, simply call the Recorder's Office at 520-866-6830 to request an early ballot. If you are a registered Independent or Party Not Determined, you have until August 17th, to request either a Republican Primary or a Democrat Primary ballot to be mailed to you as an early ballot. If you are a registered Independent and do NOT call the Recorder's Office, you will not receive a primary ballot.

The Committee to Elect Maxine Brown Pinal County Supervisor, District 5 is pleased to announce that Maxine will participate in the upcoming historic event:  the 100th Arizona Town Hall - taking place this month in Tucson. The topic of this Town Hall could not be more timely –  Civic Engagement.   Participants will consider the status of civic engagement in Arizona and reach consensus on what actions can have the most positive impact on Arizona’s future.

Orlenda Roberts and Jill Broussard will be facing off for the job of county su­perintendent in the general election this November. The job of county superintendent is to work with individual school districts when they form a budget and process the payroll for most public school employees.
