Why Jack McClaren has my strongest support to be our next Pinal County sheriff:

Why Jack McClaren has my strongest support to be our next Pinal County sheriff:

I have known Jack McClaren for more than 15 years not only as a close friend, but as a law enforcement peer and as his boss. Jack has dedicated his life to serving others, from serving in the Army, to the Department of Corrections, to the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office, to the Florence Police Department, to being our elected county constable. Jack has more than enough to be a great sheriff at a time when our Sheriff’s Office needs one.

Why I Will Not and Cannot Support the Senate “Gang of 8” Bill

Why I Will Not and Cannot Support the Senate “Gang of 8” Bill

Today the Senate passed what I consider to be one of the worst bills I have seen since Obamacare. Riddle with pork, rewarding law breakers and making transparently false promises, I cannot support this bill.

I have stated before, I do support reforming our skilled and unskilled labor visa programs. Our farmers in Yuma desperately need a system that provides reliable labor. I intend to get them that reform.

Writer: Walsh has done an excellent job for county

I have received robo-calls from the Babeu campaign attacking Jim Walsh, our Pinal County attorney. Not only are these calls possibly a violation of campaign laws but the very nature of the unfounded accu­sations and lies shows the gutter level of pol­itics Mr. Babeu practices.

With Current Staffing Levels I Can No Longer Fulfill Promise of Faster Emergency Response Times

With Current Staffing Levels I Can No Longer Fulfill Promise of Faster Emergency Response Times

Our population continues to grow in Pinal County, even in a down economy. New families are relocating in the faster growing cities of Maricopa and Casa Grande, yet it doesn't compare to unincorporated San Tan Valley. The 2010 census counts 81,321 San Tan residents and current estimates show 90,000 or more.

Why would Dr. Fuller take Mr Allee away??

I discovered yesterday that it was announced at my children's school, Walker Butte K-8, that Dr. Fuller would be moving our principal, Mr. Allee, to Florence K-8.  The reason given was he was needed there to strengthen that school.   The information was only given to the staff, and I found out through a friend that works there (I will not mention any names so I do not get anyone in trouble) However, I expect that on Monday the entire community will find out.

Why San Tan Valley should be Afraid of Annexation

Why San Tan Valley should be Afraid of Annexation

For about four months now I have been watching the annexation process just south of us and am very concerned for the San Tan Valley residents. As you may know the Town of Florence is diligently working towards annexation of two communities. According to my friends they are even having firefighters in uniform knocking on doors in support of the annexation. However there has been strong opposition towards their proposals. This led me to wonder why a majority of the people south of us were against becoming incorporated into Florence and why we should be afraid. It didn’t take long to figure out.
