    Is there a way to post side by side the records for the last four yrs. to compare some of these new reps. to the old ones to show voters say the difference in what used to be LD 4 now 22 and the difference between Burgess/Harper and Lovas/Livingston as it’s a real change I don’t believe we voted for. God Bless You; Van

      In the top banner of the Arizona Conservative Coalition’s home page, there is a “contact us” link, It lists all of the officers with their names and email addresses. Give it a try.

      Van, thank you for your interest in the Evaluation. We are booked up with work just following the legislative session right now. We will look into implementing your suggestion once the session is over.

    Clair Van Steenwyk is obviously clueless. He even puts the time of his comment under the comment, although it’s automatically added on most blog sites if he bothered to pay attention. It’s clear he never bothered to look for “contacts,” wanting someone else to do the work for him. He would have made a great senator….if he could have gotten anyone to vote for him.

    from one of your biggest fans.

    “Arizona Senate OKs bill rejecting UN declaration on environment”

    “March 21, 2013 12:00
    Howard Fischer Capitol Media Services”

    “PHOENIX – Fearing international intrusion into Arizona’s affairs, the Senate voted Wednesday to make it illegal for state and local governments to recognize the United Nations or any of its declarations as legal authority here.”

    “The legislation goes beyond the question of recognition of U.N. declarations.”

    “It would make it illegal for state or local governments to spend any money to any group “that espouses the usurping or overthrow of the Constitution of the United States.” That is based on the conclusion that the U.N. gets the support of not only member nations but also “numerous independent, nongovernmental organizations to implement its agenda around the world.”

    “But Sen. Steve Farley, D-Tucson, pointed out that the Rio Declaration was signed by then-President George W. Bush, a Republican. Farley also said those who are concerned do not understand the principles it set out.”

    “Sen. Katie Hobbs, D-Phoenix, cited another principle that says women should have a role in environmental management and development.”
