Arizona Party Builders

Phoenix – Recent Tempe Mayoral candidate Michael Monti has announced his endorsement of Lisa Gray and her Arizona Party Builders team for Maricopa County Republican Party leadership.

“Republican candidates need all the support they can get from the Party,” said Monti, who narrowly lost his 2012 race against Democrat Mark Mitchell for Mayor of Tempe. “I don’t want to see us lose another winnable race like mine. I have chosen to endorse Lisa Gray and her Arizona Party Builders team because I believe that their diplomacy, experience and ability to unify the party behind candidates is exactly what our Party needs to stay relevant and help candidates win in all areas of the county – be they red, blue, or somewhere in-between.”

“I’m truly honored that my team has Michael Monti’s support,” said Gray. “If our Party is to be relevant, we must provide the kind of grassroots support that our candidates need to win races. This includes having a cohesive plan, trained and equipped PCs, and financial resources. We have provided these resources in our districts, and will bring them to Maricopa County when we are elected.”

Getting Back to the Basics – Our Plan to Build the Party

Arizona Party Builders

We can be on the “right” side of the issues but as we learned the hard way, if we don’t communicate them, raise money, recruit conservative candidates, register voters and get voters to the polls we will not win elections. We must get back to the basics and build the infrastructure of our party if we are going to succeed. Our plan will prepare us for victory in 2014 and beyond.

Below is an outline of our plan to build the Maricopa County Republican Party.

1. Build Our Party’s Image and Effectiveness
We will work to “Build Our Party” by increasing our fundraising efforts, developing leaders, providing the tools to make the grassroots strong and effective, and greatly expanding our online and social media presence.

2. Build Strong Voter Registration and Get Out The Vote (GOTV) Programs
It’s a simple equation: Register more voters and get them out to vote and we win!

3. Provide Training and Resources for Precinct Committeemen (PCs)
PCs are only powerful if they are trained and equipped. We will provide them the tools they need to be effective.

4. Provide Training and Resources for District Chairmen and Officers
Districts will thrive with strong, effective leaders. We will provide the tools and support to help district chairmen and their teams be successful!

5. Recruit, Train and Support Candidates for All Offices
All politics is local. We will help districts to recruit, train and support Republicans to run for office at all levels. Our goal is to have a Republican in every race. If we are going to prepare for the future it is imperative that we begin recruiting and preparing the next generation of leaders.

Editor’s Note: We have turned off comments – ESPECIALLY TO ANONYMOUS COMMENTERS – because we believe the long-term impact to party harmony is damaging. You may find yourself having to work with a party leader and your prior comments will likely make that work very difficult.
