RETAIN EDDIE COOK AS ASSESSOR
Rodney Glassman, who has repeatedly and unsuccessfully run for public office as a Democrat, is back again, this time as self declared ‘conservative” running for Maricopa County Assessor. Just two years ago in 2018, Glassman carried the union label as he appeared on the UFCW Local 99 endorsement list along with Democrats running for statewide, congressional, district and school board elections.
Glassman, who bears no allegiance to any party or position, is a political opportunist who can magically transform himself better than Erik Weisz who morphed into Houdini.
Misguided conservatives who are supporting him might be surprised to know that in his previous political incarnations, he was the darling of both local and national Planned Parenthood leadership. In 2012 when Democrat Glassman ran for the U.S. Senate challenging John McCain, he won the endorsement of both Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona:
“This election is crucial, and we need leaders in the U.S. Senate who will stand strong against attempts to restrict women’s access to basic health care and who will champion policies that make that health care more available to all women,” said Cecile Richards, then-president of the national Planned Parenthood Action Fund. “Rodney Glassman’s record of public service and charitable giving stands on its own, and he is a proven advocate for women’s health and rights.”
To pro-abortion advocates, women’s “reproductive health care and rights” is code talk for the unrestricted ability to kill pre-born human babies.
“The voters in Arizona are tired of politics as usual from their elected officials who represent them in Washington,” said Bryan Howard, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona. “They want to elect a champion of women’s health, and Rodney Glassman is that candidate. He is committed to standing up for women and families by putting commonsense health care needs ahead of ideology and politics.”
Incumbent Maricopa County Assessor Eddie Cook is a man of integrity, a reliable, conservative community leader, technology expert and former member of the Gilbert Town Council where he served for nearly a decade. Cook was unanimously appointed by the Board of Supervisors as Maricopa County Assessor over 10 other GOP applicants — including Glassman — when his predecessor was removed after being charged with adoption related felonies in multiple states. Eddie Cook is restoring trust and accountability to the office, eliminating waste and saving taxpayers money. Take time to read his priorities and accomplishments.
This is an important election. It’s crucial to retain Eddie Cook as Assessor. Don’t be conned by the biggest signs placed by wealthy political changeling Rodney Glassman, desperate for a win to use as a launching pad for grander schemes. His current intent is to buy his way into office…any office…to facilitate his future plans.
