ELOY, ARIZONA. DECEMBER 14, 2007. The political roster for Decades Music Theme Park is starting to look like a greatest hits album.

Former GOP Senate President Brenda Burns and well- known Phoenix business leader Ronnie Lopez are the latest to join the $800 million dollar project’s lobbying team.

Burns, a conservative Republican, served in the Arizona House of Representatives from 1987-1995, where she became the first woman Majority Leader. She also served in the Arizona State Senate from 1995-2003 and was elected by her peers as Arizona’s first female Senate President.

Lopez is a highly regarded advocate and represents some of the country’s largest corporations. He has served as Governor Bruce Babbitt’s Chief of Staff, President & CEO of Chicanos Por La Causa and as Chairman of Phil Gordon’s successful Phoenix Mayoral campaigns.

Last week, Decades announced the hiring of Fred Duval and Becky Hill. Duval spent seven years in the Clinton Administration and currently serves on the Arizona Board of Regents. Hill served as Governor Janet Napolitano’s Education Policy Advisor until 2005. She now has her own consulting company.

Burns, Lopez, Duval and Hill join DeMenna & Associates, Rose & Allyn Public Relations and the Rose Law Group advocating for the project. Firm founders Kevin Demenna, Jason Rose and Jordan Rose are well known for their active involvement and success within GOP circles.

Decades Music Theme Park is a proposed 300-acre, $800 million project east of Interstate Ten in Eloy, Arizona. The $500 million Hard Rock Park in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is under construction and scheduled to open in May, 2008.

  1. Passonate Moderate says

    Government guaranteed bonding for a theme park. What a great idea.

  2. Passonate Moderate says

    Powerful the dark side is.

  3. Come on Passionate Moderate!! Eloy is a lot like Myrtle Beach. Can’t you envision thousands of people from across the country going to Eloy for their summer vacations. Damn the heat, the location, and everything else – full speed ahead!!!

  4. The headline should be “Former State GOP Senate President Burns and heavyweight Democrat Babbitt COS and Chicanos Por La Causa President Lopez have been bought to lobby for Eloy theme park tax giveaway.”

    A truly bi-partisan theft of our tax dollars to prop up a scheme that cannot get bonding without the guarantee of tax dollars. This type of scheme is hardly conservative, Brenda.

  5. Passonate Moderate says

    Putting taxpayers on the hook for theme park bonds is just as conservative as tax giveaways for hollywood film companies. O’wait it must be conservative, the lobbyist for both these great ideas is a former Republican member of the legislature. Powerful the dark side is.

  6. Please leave Arizona alone. Lets get back to basics and focus on what makes Arizona attractive–the scenery–without buildings. There are too many structures, golf courses, roads and cities in this state. People are talking about this problem more and more each year.

    I do not support this initiative NOR the construction of any buildings out there.
    Two positives come out of not doing anything with this project–anywhere.
    1. You save taxpayer $$.
    2. You keep a little more of what people think of when they think of Arizona–wild and open.
    Save our Arizona–please.
