Friends and supporters,
We are pleased to announce the launch of the first NO on Proposition 480 TV ad today.
Proposition 480 would impose a $1.6 billion tax increase on Maricopa County property owners for a new government run, county hospital. Many believe that the price tag for what amounts to a blank check is too high for a special district with a relatively narrow mission.
Supporters of Prop 480 don’t want to talk about the price tag. Neither do they want to explain how they are spending $600,000 of taxpayer money to run a feel good branding campaign in conjunction with the referendum campaign.
If you agree that Prop 480 is a bad idea at a bad time, please forward this ad to your friends via e-mail, Facebook, Twitter or other social media outlets. Please help us get out the word that the price of Prop 480 is just too high.

UNBELIEVABLE……Read the story here. Must be nice to be powerful and connected. The rest of us little people would be in prison.

Breaks Yet another Fundraising Record
PHOENIX, AZ – Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s re-election campaign today announced their fundraising haul for 2013. The Elect Sheriff Joe Arpaio committee raised more than $3.5 million in the last twelve months, setting another record for a county race.
The committee collected over 78,000 contributions, totaling $3,550,100.87. Based on these figures, the average contribution was approximately $45.00.
The overwhelming majority (99.5%) of the contributions received were under the old limits of $450 per person before the Arizona Supreme Court upheld the new limits of $5,000 per person.
Chad Willems, Arpaio’s campaign manager, stated, “We continue to be blown away by the depth and breadth of support for Sheriff Joe. These numbers tell the story that the Sheriff and his policies are more popular than ever.”
Arpaio said, “I am so grateful for the outpouring of support from so many generous people. It emboldens me to know that my supporters are there for me especially when faced with a recall election and being maliciously targeted by the federal government just for doing my job.”
He continued, “Every four years, my supporters encourage me to run for Governor. Based on these fundraising numbers and knowing I could be competitive, I will have to give it serious consideration.”
Sheriff Joe Arpaio was re-elected to a sixth term in November 2012.
