Submitted by a trustworthy Precinct Committeeman in LD23.
Unfortunately in LD23, for the 2nd time in 4 years DR. C.T. Wright (who last year won the Barry Goldwater award and was the President of the Best Republican Club – the Fountain Hills Republican Club) was not considered a good enough Republican by LD23 leadership and other PCs to be elected as an LD23 State Committeeman. What a disgrace, what a shame. Good enough to be an Elector in 2012. Good enough to win the Barry Goldwater Award. Good enough to be asked by President-elect Trump to lead the invocations at all his Arizona rallies, but not good enough to lead the invocation at the LD23 organizational meeting (even though he gave the invocation at all other LD23 meetings) and not good enough to represent LD23 as a State Committeeman. But that is LD23. What a disgrace, what a shame.
It is also noted that Mark Lewis, a LD23 PC who won a county-wide election in November, was not chosen as a LD23 State committeeman. Good enough to win county-wide, but not good enough to represent LD23 as a State Committeeman. Hum.
So these fine individuals who are good Republicans and many other longtime loyal PCs (such as Paula and Bruce Linker and Larry and Joanna Hagan, for example) will NOT be able to vote for or against their own (immediate past) District Chair, as he runs for State Chair. Nor will they be able to vote on other matters such as resolutions and By-Law changes that are proposed at the state Mandatory Meeting. Wow. What a shame. What a disgrace within LD23.
