    How disappointing, but not surprising, that lobbyist Cathi Herrod came out in favor of this massive raid (Prop 123). She wants favors from the governor and this was an issue he was promoting. Center for Arizona Policy has lost its core. On this issue, I trust the present and past state treasurers. They have nothing to gain and are knowledgeable on the economic impact and realities.

    • Seen It All says:

      Cathi Herrod’s high level political associations have paid off well for both her and her husband who sits as an appointed judge. You’re right to refer to her as a lobbyist, but the words highly paid are missing. She is also a highly skilled fundraiser. Try locating her salary online. It’s a tightly held secret, but in the exceedingly comfortable six figure range. The promotion of “values” is a big business and with very generous compensation.

    Prop. 123, a smoke and mirrors theft of the state land trust is ahead by less than one full percentage point. Still think your votes don’t matter?

  3. Patriot Dad says:

    The Secretary of State’s site also breaks down the votes by counties. The voters of Coconino, Pima and Yavapai counties were not fooled. Too bad the sheeple are winning and by such a slim margin.

    • Clementine says:

      Only 9.8 % of the voters in Apache County thought these ballot measures were important enough to vote on!

  4. LD 23 PC says:

    Regardless of the issue, if people can be convinced “it’s for the children” even when the children will ultimately be harmed by the supposed do-goodism, those words carry the day with voters who don’t take the time to find out the facts.

    • Conservative Since Birth says:

      True. It all started with that harridan Hillary Rodham Power-At-Any-Cost Clinton and her “It takes a village.” The sad thing is that a certain percentage of Americans fall for those empty words that cost taxpayers a lot!
