Senator John McCain attended a town hall in Gilbert today. When asked about his recent statement on the Tea Party, this was his response:
Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Senator John Huppenthal, Chairman of the Senate Education Committee and Candidate for Superintendent of Public Instruction, will be hosting an Education Town Hall on July 22 at 6:30 pm at the Scottsdale Civic Center Library Auditorium.
Education is one of the most critical issues facing our state:
- How do we reduce the school drop-out rate? How do we prevent juvenile delinquency? What effect will reducing the drop-out rate have on juvenile crime?
- What every parent should know about drugs and substance abuse in our schools.
- How do we ensure the continued use of English immersion in our schools?
- How can we ground our students with respect for the Constitution and our Founding Fathers and imbue them with a proper sense of our country’s history?
- Why are only half of our students reading by the end of the 4th grade; how do we improve literacy and reading proficiency? What are the effects of illiteracy on crime?
- Can Arizona compete on a national or world stage in math and science?
Discussion will focus on how to improve education in Arizona, the challenges we face, our education standing relative to other states and related issues. Come join a lively discussion!

Wnuck Announces Congressional Campaign Kickoff with Seven Town Hall Meetings in 2009
Scottsdale, AZ—Today, Scottsdale businessman Eric Wnuck announced his candidacy
for Arizona’s 5th Congressional District with a series of seven town hall meetings across
the district. The meetings will be held between October 10th and December 12th and will
focus on topics ranging from health care to the economy.
Eric Wnuck wants to hear from the people: “Career politicians have long since stopped
serving our state and our district – and it is painfully clear they just don’t listen,” said
Wnuck. “Arizona voters don’t want more government takeovers, more government
taxes, or more laws that take away our rights”. Wnuck believes that holding town halls in
the district will allow the people to learn more about the issues and get answers to their
At the first Town Hall Meeting this Saturday, October 10th at Granite Reef Senior Center,

No controlled telephone town halls for Wnuck. He believes a face-to-face on important
issues is a necessity. “Nancy Pelosi and Harry Mitchell might think that it’s un-American
to speak out against the government takeover of health care, but I believe it is a necessary
part of our American principle to voice our opinions. I’m looking forward to these
events; Arizonans want results and I’m running because our career politicians have failed
