Tom Husband Announces Candidacy for Maricopa County Republican Committee Chairmanship

Tom Husband, Legislative District 11 second vice-chairman, has announced his candidacy for Chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Committee (MCRC). Current chairman Lyle Tuttle recently announced he will be stepping down due to health problems.

Husband has been endorsed by state GOP chairman Randy Pullen and Tuttle.

Tuttle said, “Tom’s executive capabilities and optimism will be valuable assets to the Maricopa County Republican Committee as we move forward in the 2008 election cycle.”

Husband said, “I am running to do all that I can to keep liberals away from my government.  To think that we could have nationalized medicine in this country with its obscene mortality rates is appalling.  And, no society has ever taxed its way into prosperity.  Liberals will destroy us if we let them.”

He continued, “I plan to provide the support systems necessary to recruit and educate precinct committeemen (PC) to the extent allowed per district.  Our PCs can make the difference in the upcoming election.  We must win in November.”

Husband has chaired the LD11 voter registration committee, was the 2006 PAChyderm Coalition second vice-chairman, and chaired Voters Opposing Tax Extension (VOTE), formed in 2004 opposing the half-cent sales tax extension to fund light rail in Phoenix.
He has served as the treasurer for the Arizona Federation of Taxpayers Association (AFTA) since 2005, is a member of the Arizona Civil Defense League (AZCDL), is a member of Valley Conservative League (VOCAL) and is the founder of the International Conservative Authors Network  (ICAN).

Husband is Chairman of the Board, President and Treasurer of First Commercial Funding Corporation, which has provided over $100 million in lease financing.

Husband founded and was Chairman of the Board of First National Capital Corporation, a capital equipment leasing company. The company was ranked 42nd in INC. Magazine’s survey of the nation’s 500 fastest growing privately held corporations.

Subsequently, he was Vice Chairman of the Board, and Executive Vice President of McDonnell Douglas Capital Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of McDonnell Douglas Finance Corporation.

He has an electrical engineering degree from Michigan State University and is a member in good standing of the State Bar of Michigan.

    One of the things that this information brings to mind is a lack of an Arizona Republican TEAM. And, it’s no better here in this corner of the state. We, too, changed chairs except like the info from Rob to the MCRC, the CCRC was not told about it. Some learned about second hand and the membership as a whole found out about it at the mandatory meeting where the ‘in crowd’ were all acting as business as usual. It was known earlier down here about Lyle’s resignation when ‘Frosty’ forwarded a copy of Dan Nichols resignation. But, with no state team one wonders just how many of the other counties are doing what. Do the have the same chairs as they elected in 2006? Have any changed in significant way? Ah, it doesn’t seem to matter. It’s been noted that the counties can do whatever they like and we don’t work together, anyway.

    Does the state party hierarchy know what is going on with the county parties? Sometimes back the chair of Cochise County resigned and the party blog, nor the Tusk bit said anything. Now, Lyle Tuttle is resigning as the chair of Maricopa and the state had said nothing that I have seen. No fond farewell, kiss my bazooka, or anything. Is there anything going on with the rest of the county parties that is of interest?

    Anyway, good luck to Tom. There are those of us outside Maricopa County who have appreciated Lyle.

    P.S. There is some interesting information in the wind. The budget, property taxes, and a number of other items. If you go to ALIS (Arizona Legislative Information System) you will note that all of the state representatives and state senators have their email address listed. I have added the Republicans to my list. There are no plans to send every Arizona Town Crier to them, but there will be some that should be of interest to our elected.
