It shouldn't surprise anyone that, even though less than a month has passed since Paul Babeu started his second term as Sheriff of Pinal County, he is now in Phoenix (Maricopa County) hanging out and lobbying with Senator Crandell.  In short, Babeu and Crandall are asking that Clean Elections money be discontinued and reallocated to cover School Resource Officers state wide. On paper, what they are asking may look OK.  Unfortunately, Babeu is asking for money that he already has. He is cheating the citizens of Arizona. Surprise.

I have a friend of mine who has been in a relationship for a couple years with the same person.  Last year, she found out that he cheated on her.  It took some time to recover from that, but they got through it.  Last month, she found out that he cheated on her again.  Unfortunately it has been a pretty embarrassing experience since she found out.  She had been on facebook and started thinking that something was up.  She decided to follow him (I know a bit spooky but her choice) and followed him out one night.  They ended up at a well known pizza joint.  She waited in the parking lot and then saw him approach another woman.  Without going into too much detail, it was obvious that the two of them had something going on.  Heartbroken, my friend started doing some digging and found that he had even created a profile on a dating site and had been looking to hook up with others while they had been together all this time.

Derek Arnson - Pinal County Sheriff Candidate

Last week, the Pinal County Board of Supervisors adopted a tentative budget for the upcoming fiscal year that starts in July.

The tentative budget for fiscal year 2012-2013 came in at $334,515,835 or six percent lower than last year’s budget. This amount cannot be raised, but it can be lowered before we adopt the actual budget.

Do campaign signs win elections? That’s a good question, right? We are being deluged with all sizes, shapes and colors announcing candidates for federal, state, county and local positions. Does the one with the most signs win? That’s another good question.

There is a warning out that some fraudu­lent individuals are trying to sign up people for ObamaCare now, but you should be aware no one can sign up for it until the exchanges go active on Oct. 1. There are places where you can get information about how it will work and what will be covered, but no one can sign you up for it yet. There are some who are already covered by it like some people with pre-existing conditions and young people who are staying on their parent’s plans.

I like to consider myself a conservative Independent. One, who grew up in a Republican home, yet rebelled as an 18 year old and registered Democrat because I bought into the Carter rhetoric at that time. I changed allegiance within a couple years back to Republican. That was 38 years ago now, and because of the local issues I have become involved in, as well as national issues that have concerned me greatly, I’ve come to see the wisdom in not playing the “left/right paradigm” but voting for those who truly believe in the first words of our Constitution…”We The People.”

Presidential elections seldom highlight the contributions that a candidate’s mate can make. Indirectly, mates can make a difference for the continuing success of the winning candidate in office. Allida Black has published (2009) “The First Ladies of the United States of America,” an insightful book on the contributions of the women who supported their husbands during and after presidential terms.

I want to congratulate Todd House on his win as Supervisor for Pinal County, District 5. I wish him the very best and the best for the future of our beautiful county. I am so pleased that we ran a political race based on our experience and what we could do for the county.  It was truly a clean campaign on both our parts and it was a pleasure for me to get out and meet the wonderful people in our district.

Dear Mr. Walsh,

I write to you today not as a Pinal County law enforcement officer and not as a political attack, but as a victim of a serious crime in Pinal County.  I wish to address this criminal case (PCSO DR# 110409017) that has gone unprosecuted in Pinal County for political purposes. Sheriff Paul Babeu has overlooked it and has defended the incompetence and outright cronyism of his employees. This effort has been encouraged by the agents of the county who investigate claims and who appear to not work for the county, but have aligned themselves with the Pinal County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy undermining the competence and authority of the Pinal County Attorney’s Office.
