Arizona House Members Endorse Tobin

“Andy Tobin never wavers in his conservative values.”

Tobin’s fellow legislators at the State Capitol show an outpouring of support for his campaign today, citing his integrity, honesty and battle-tested conservative values.

“Throughout my legislative career I have always respected Andy Tobin as a fair, thoughtful and diligent legislator,” said Arizona State Representative Tom Forese. “Together, we cut taxes in Arizona, cut state spending, fought for secure borders, fought to protect life, fought to protect 2nd amendment rights and fought against ObamaCare. It is for these reasons, and many more, that I endorse Andy Tobin for Congress in Arizona’s 1st Congressional District. I wholeheartedly encourage everyone to stand behind Tobin as he takes on the challenge of restoring Arizona to its conservative values.”

“As Speaker Tobin’s seat mate for the past four years, I have seen first-hand how much Andy cares about and advocates for the people he represents,” said State Rep. Karen Fann. “Andy has been tirelessly fighting for conservative values in Arizona for years. Whether he’s fighting against federal government overreach and ObamaCare or fighting for the unborn and our 2nd Amendment rights, Andy Tobin never wavers in his conservative values. Arizona’s 1st Congressional District needs a conservative fighter like Andy to represent their voice in Washington. Tobin is the right candidate at the right time for Arizona’s 1st Congressional District.”

“I support Andy Tobin for Congress,” said State Rep. Debbie Lesko. “Andy has always been a no-nonsense conservative legislator at the State Capitol.  He has a solid track record of fighting for the people of Arizona and especially for the interests of rural Arizona.  I encourage anyone who believes in limited government, individual freedoms and 2nd Amendment rights to support Andy Tobin.”

“Andy Tobin has always put the people he represents before his own interests,” said Arizona State Representative Paul Boyer. “His integrity, honesty and steadfastness is unmatched in the legislature. There is no question in my mind that Tobin will represent Congressional District One in Arizona with the same zeal he has shown as Speaker. I am proud to endorse Andy Tobin for Congress. I would encourage everyone to support his campaign and join his team.”

“Andy Tobin is a fair, honest and effective conservative representative for the people he represents,” said Arizona State Rep. Borrelli. “His record of fighting against ObamaCare, protecting life, securing our borders and protecting 2nd Amendment rights is exactly what Arizonans need in Washington. I am proud to endorse Andy Tobin for United States Congress in Arizona’s 1st Congressional District.”

Kirk Adams Announces More Conservative Endorsements

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Wednesday, July 13, 2011
CONTACT: Chad Heywood

Conservative legislators endorse Kirk Adams
All Legislative District 21 lawmakers throw support behind Adams

East Valley — Kirk Adams is proud to announce that he has won the endorsement of three conservative East Valley lawmakers: State Senator Steven Yarbrough and Representatives Tom Forese and J.D. Mesnard.

The three lawmakers all represent Legislative District 21, which includes Chandler, Queen Creek, Gilbert and Mesa. They join a growing list of conservative leaders who are supporting Adams in his bid for Congress.

Senator Yarbrough, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, said: “Speaker Kirk Adams is a gifted and effective leader. He is truly a man of integrity. We served in House leadership together and he will bring expertise, experience, courage, and wonderful family values to Congress. We need him there!”

Representative Forese, chairman of the House Higher Education Committee, said: “America is at a crossroad. Our leadership will determine whether our country continues to lead the world or whether we fade into obscurity. Kirk Adams is an honest, smart and hardworking conservative. He has spent the last 5 years putting Arizona in the right direction. Now it’s time to send him to Washington.

Representative Mesnard said: “There are four reasons why I’m supporting Kirk Adams for Congress: his values, his virtue, his vision and his victories. As Speaker of the Arizona House

of Representatives, Kirk modeled all four when tackling critical issues like balancing the budget, creating jobs, and reforming the state retirement system — the very issues that also need addressing at the national level. That’s what makes Kirk Adams the perfect candidate to send to Washington and represent our community.”

Adams thanked the lawmakers for their support: “These three men have provided great conservative leadership for our community and I’m honored to have their support. They join a growing grassroots movement that’s growing stronger by the day.”

A husband, father and small businessman, after joining the state House in 2006, Adams found himself so frustrated by the unwillingness and inability of Republicans in the Legislature to stand up for their conservative principals that he launched a long-shot campaign to oust the veteran Speaker of the House.

Adams shocked the Republican establishment and political class, winning the Speakership at only 35 years of age and one full term in office – making him the youngest Speaker in Arizona history.

Adams led the House back in a conservative direction with an aggressive reform agenda, taking on some of the most challenging issues in Arizona history – issues others were afraid to address because of the potential political fallout.

A native Arizonan, Adams and his wife JaNae live in Mesa and have five children.

Arizona House: State Legislators Give Back

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 26, 2011
CONTACT: Paul Boyer

Several state Representatives will be working on Friday, May 27 in downtown Chandler from 8:00am to 2:30pm on a home renovation project with Habitat for Humanity Central Arizona.

Representatives Eddie Farnsworth, Tom Forese, J.D. Mesnard, Steve Montenegro, Terri Proud, Amanda Reeve, David Stevens will all be in attendance to help renovate the foreclosed home.

“Habitat is a wonderful organization that instills the pride of home ownership through the personal responsibility and sweat equity each future homeowner must provide in order to move in,” Representative J.D. Mesnard said. “I’m thrilled about helping this couple renovate their future home and pleased to see the city of Chandler partnering with Habitat to serve our residents through these projects.”

To qualify, future Habitat homeowners must earn 30 to 60 percent of the area median income; take classes on financial fitness and home maintenance since many are first time homeowners. They must work 100 construction hours on a renovated home known as “sweat equity” prior to moving in. They receive a 0 percent interest mortgage paid to Habitat which goes into a fund that allows them to purchase more land along with the “sticks and bricks” to build/renovate even further.
