Vote for Moses Sanchez for Maricopa County Community College District Board

I like to refer to my friend Moses Sanchez as the “Happy Warrior.” Moses is running for the Maricopa County Community College District Board this November and is someone who will bring positive conservative values and leadership to the board.

Moses Sanchez is the type of conservative we need in the Republican Party – a party we need to grow and expand if we want to affect positive change and bring new people into the party.

Moses Sanchez migrated to the United States from Panama with his parents and sister. He has served on active duty in the US Navy including a deployment to Afghanistan. He is currently serves in the reserves. He has a B.S. and MBA in Business Management and has taught economics at South Mountain Community College. He also serves on Tempe Union High School District Governing Board. He owns his own small business which helps other small businesses with social media.

Moses and his wife, Maria Manriquez, MD, have three children and three grandchildren. He is a man of faith and family and demonstrates a strong ethic in everything he does. And if you’ve seen his Snapchat videos, you know the man can seriously cook! (Read Moses’ full bio here.)

Moses is running in MCCCD (district) 1 which covers all of Ahwatukee, Chandler, Tempe, Gilbert, Queen Creek and parts of Scottsdale, Mesa, and Phoenix. He is competing against two other candidates in the race.

Early ballots are scheduled to go out later this week. When you get your ballot, immediately go to the bottom of the ballot and mark your vote for Moses Sanchez.

Moses will bring strong, optimistic and conservative governance to the MCCCD and it’s why I ask you to vote for Moses Sanchez this election.

Sen. Gray: Maricopa Community Colleges Preparing to Violate State Law

CONTACT: Mike Philipsen

(Phoenix, State Capitol) —–It took more than four years for Maricopa Community Colleges to come in compliance with state law on illegal immigrants’ tuition, and now it looks like it may take just three months for the Board to reverse itself, and violate state law.

Sen. Linda Gray has learned the Maricopa Community Colleges Governing Board will hold a special meeting Tuesday night, to consider backing out of a March tuition agreement that finally put the Colleges in compliance with Proposition 300. That is the proposition passed by more than 70% of Arizona voters in 2006, barring illegal immigrants from in-state tuition. The meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. at the District Support Services Center at 2411 W. 14th St. in Tempe.

“Voters made it clear nearly five years ago, that illegal aliens should not earn in-state status. The Board has dragged its feet for years, but finally, with the March vote, they decided to fully follow state law,” says Sen. Gray. “Now, even before the tuition schedule goes into effect on July 1, the Board is re-considering its action. That is unacceptable.”

The wording of Proposition 300 is clear on this issue. “A person who was not a citizen or legal resident of the United States or who is without lawful immigrant status is not entitled to classification as an in-state student….”

“Years ago, voters told these schools, “Don’t use state money to subsidize tuition for illegal immigrants. It is sad that more than four years later, we are still waiting for Maricopa Community Colleges to hear the voters, and even sadder that they are considering turning their back again on those voters,” says Sen. Gray.
