Cross-party, renegade endorsements are in conflict with specific duties of precinct committeemen
A. J. LaFaro, chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Committee, has written a commentary explaining that Republicans elected as precinct committeemen (PC) who endorse Democrats proved that their egregious actions have consequences. His “AZ I See It” column, printed in the Arizona Republic and can be read here.
He explains the duties of a PC, including the state laws and party bylaws at the state, county and legislative district level under which elected or appointed committeemen function.
For the uninitiated, LaFaro provides an education into the roles and responsibilities of this important political position —- one that exists in both Republican and Democrat parties.
A. J. LaFaro’s cogent response to the noise that has stifled rational thought on this key issue is definitely worth your time. He has served the Maricopa County Republican Party with distinction.
