Welcome Political Content

Below are my plans and positions to resolve some of the problems I’ve identified for AZ Voters.  If you have questions regarding my experience, intentions or qualifications, please don’t hesitate to contact us, and we’ll respond ASAP to your request. 

I’m inviting our guests to look at my Facebook page and check our posts with Videos that cover many issues (use the FB Button on the Top Right of the Page).  I’m asking our guests to  Vote 4 President Trump & Jim O’Connor for AZ Corporation Commission, and Jerry Sheridan 4 Maricopa County Sheriff in the November General Election which will start with Early Voting in October.  View Clair’s  responses to AZ Republic’s questionnaire and Supporters questions on the campaign’s progress.

We’ve been speaking to groups around the Valley.  At our last meeting, I polled 45 voters with 50% saying they voted for us, and  the rest saying they planned to, most taking cards to give to others.   One lady took 10 cards to hand out.  They’re calling, texting, emailing and messaging others to vote.  Our grassroots campaign is a positive one.

I trust these Activist Republicans.  They want a Candidate not controlled by GOP Party Bosses, Lobbyist’s and Special Interest groups. 

Voters continue to ask for my advice on what candidates to vote for in response to my posts on social media platforms such as Twitter and FB.  Some of the questions are regarding how to be Informed Voters, make good decisions on Candidates Positions and on who’s Word you can Trust

I’m a retired Businessman with a background in Operations, Sales, Marketing, Property Management, and Broadcasting.  The knowledge and experience I gained in these Fields will be beneficial in the Maricopa County Recorders office.  I have the management and the planning skills needed to fix the problems in the Maricopa County Recorders Office, including Voter Registration and Early Ballots, which are the Direct Responsibility of the Recorder.  I will work diligently to protect All Voters Rights.

The Arizona Republic sent Maricopa County Recorder Candidates a questionnaire.  Link to Video; https://youtu.be/he-lOWAPyfk

1. What is the single biggest issue facing the county recorder’s office, and how would you address it? Have an Honest Election Process to give the Voters Trust in the Process again.  I’d put forth legislation to Amend the Voting Rules on Ballot Harvesting, turning in Early Ballots, Signature Verification, and end using Federal Registration Forms as no Proof of Birth is Required.   
2. Do you see this position as a full-time job? Yes

3. Should this be an elected position? Yes

Why or why not? I believe if you’re Elected to office then you’re accountable to Voters and not to Politicians or Parties, this prevents Political Pressure from any Elected Officials who may put their own Re Election or party interests above those of the Voters, which happened in the past and is happening presently.  Examples of this are AZ’s State Board of Education appointed by the Governor, AZ’s Education is rated 47th, they’re more concerned with Indoctrinating our Children with Common Core rather than Educating them and the Maricopa County Supervisors appointed someone to operate all Poll voting and promised to have enough Polls and open and operate the Polls on time, however we have 400 fewer Polls in the Primary than our last one, Political Appointments of Political Cronies don’t serve the Voters as Past & Present History proves.

4. What role should the Board of Supervisors play with the Recorder’s Office in elections? Advisory Only

Link to Recall Elected Officials: https://ballotpedia.org/Removal_from_Office_(Arizona), the Supervisors took over management of Polling Places after 2018 and we went from 500 to 100 polling locations, Supervisor’s decisions promising to manage the polling process hasn’t worked. The Recorder should meet with Supervisors for any Voter input they have affecting the process applying this information to better serve the Voters.  

5. What should emergency voting look like in Maricopa County? The Recorder presently has no authority, it was given to Supervisors because of present recorders misuse, however believe it should be restored before the next election cycle if the present recorder is removed in the General Election, and then with Supervisor’s & Voters input make the necessary changes..  

6. Should elections officials move toward all-mail elections? No

Why or Why not? The Mail In System isn’t Secure for several reasons in AZ, Primary reason the Federal Registration Form requires No Proof of Citizenship and isn’t Audited, Ballot Harvesting both leave the Door Wide Open for Voter Fraud, and with Fontez mailing out Early Ballots to Voters who never requested them also creates yet another problem, we must also secure Voter rolls to be up to date guaranteeing that everyone on the Rolls are still living at the Residence and in fact are still living these are a few of the reasons I don’t agree with All Mail In Elections, and actually like to see only Absentee Ballots and all other Voting done in person at the Polls, even if we have to extend Polls being opened lets say for a Week. I’ll be submitting either Legislation or Petition the Legislature to amend All Laws that better regulate Voter Registration and Ballot Collection.
One more reason I don’t like All Mail In Elections is I believe the Socialists would use it to Dissolve Our Republic, just as they’re in Favor of the National Popular Vote meaning Majority Rule or Ca., NY, Penn, etc. would decide who sits in the White House and gets on the Supreme Court.

Clair’s Interview on Channel 3 in the 2018 campaign:

I enjoyed this interview with what I consider a very Professional & Objective Reporter, which as most Conservatives know, are hard to find.  She was considerate and thoughtful in her questioning, and even though the original interview was much longer than 3 minutes, the editing was objective and fair and we enjoyed the entire experience.  Van’s Interview on Channel 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRF3xKZZAmc, to view more videos go to the Video page or click the you tube symbol and then sit back and view, and take a look at this; Van speaking at AZ Legislature Committee Meetings giving Office Holders some advice on truly representing the people about the National Popular Vote, and not received well by the Committee.

County Recorder Fontes didn’t count Thousands of Primary Votes in 2018, and not counting Ballots by Registered Voters violates Voters Constitutional Rights, as All American Citizens Right to Vote is only a Right if the Votes are Counted.  When they are not Counted, that is Voter Fraud perpetrated by the Government, for your Right to Vote exceeds their State Laws & Statutes that negate your Vote.

Fontes also extended the process of verifying signatures long after the Polls were closed which hasn’t been the practice of previous  Recorders

Fontes quietly & secretly opened Polling places in areas with High Democrat Voter Registration and then promptly closed them once his objective was accomplished.  This is a Form of Voter Frau, which manipulated the results.
The Maricopa County Recorder can’t make deals with Politicians, Attorneys or other Special Interest Groups allowing Non Citizens, Legal or Illegal Immigrants to File to Vote pending proof of Citizenship.  This is unnecessary paperwork and may lead to Non Citizens Voting.

Voters’ distrust is due to the Institutional Voter Fraud allowed within the elections operating systems.  However, just fixing the Voting systems and Laws won’t fix all Voter Fraud, we’ll still have no control over the Fraud committed on the Voters long before the First Ballot is cast by many who run for office

Let’s 1st examine the definition of Fraud which is an Act of deceiving or misrepresenting: A person who is not what he or she pretends to be is called, Trickery, Misleading, and Lying.  Trickery, specifically Deceit:  intentional perversion of truth in order to induce another to part with something of value, (such as your Vote).

This type of Voter Fraud can only be corrected by a Well Informed Electorate, and now more than ever we must all strive to be informed and to inform others as well.  One Perfect example of Voter Fraud that’s been committed by several now holding office and up for Re Election is they Supported and Voted 4 the NPV (National Popular Vote), all the Liberal Democrat’s in AZ must ask those running for Re Election if they’ll still Vote 4 NPV exposing the Fraud they perpetrated on the Voters just years ago, and yes I’m speaking of Republican Incumbents who are still in Office in 2020.

I’ve set up Operational Systems in Businesses.
I’ll lay out a Sound Business Plan with the Dedication to carry it out. Goals are to set up Maricopa County‘s Voting System that’s completely Transparent for Voters Trust, encourages Higher Voter Participation, leaving a Template for all Future County Recorders to Follow. I’ll, Operate the Maricopa County Recorders Office Honestly, Efficiently, Safeguarding the Rights of Maricopa County Voters.  This isn’t a Political Issue I assure you, I will Insure Your Right to Vote includes it being Counted.  

I will ensure voters are qualified to register to Vote on an Arizona Form and guarantee those who Register new voters follow our laws as stated.  Currently, Proof of Citizenship isn’t Required on the Federal Form.   Socialist Democrats use it and unfortunately, the AZ ‘s SOS, AG & Gov signed Off on It

I support the following:

To qualify to register to Vote on an Arizona Form and guarantee those who Register new voters follow our laws , as stated, however Proof of Citizenship isn’t Required on the Federal Form and the Socialist Dems use it as AZ AG & Gov signed Off on It, these two are a piece of work.

  • Must be a U.S. citizen with Proof of Birth Certificate or U.S. Passport.
  • Must be a resident of the Arizona county listed on your registration.
  • Must be at least 18 years old on or before the date of the next general election.
  • Will be disqualified from Voting with felony conviction(s). until cleared with paperwork or Legislature amends laws.
  • Will be disqualified from Voting if declared “incompetent” by a court.

These Laws are simple to understand and easy to follow, as the U.S. Constitution and AZ Law both require U. S. Citizenship to Vote, with No Exceptions.  The U.S.Constitution guarantees the Rights of Every U.S. Citizen, with the Right to Vote being one of them.  Amendments XIV, XXIV, and XXVI, clearly state that it’s a Right for U.S. Citizens Only and Early Voting is a Prime Example of Voter Fraud and must be Ended.

Voter Roles must be updated, Unidentifiable Voters Signatures removed (this change would have made Thousands of Primary Votes Count in 2018), as well as the deceased, moved or those without Proof of Citizenship.

To prevent Fraud in Future AZ Elections and Correct the Institutional Voter Fraud that’s Built into the System, I pledge to End Ballot Harvesting in Maricopa County, by enforcing the present laws and petitioning the State Legislature to write or amend Laws that will clearly prevent any form of Ballot Harvesting.  We must also consider Ending or at the very least, Shortening Early Voting, and get Voter ID for All AZ Voters.

I agree with President Trumps response to a question on Mail In or Early Voting.  Link to the Video   https://drive.google.com/file/d/1oNjNh-6cKc76S4L74BV971fuN8bfYFgv/view?fbclid=IwAR2p4RCgLC7MPRiajJ2JYMv08oeUUF8JMYWO2xTjOwHV0haLYBSo_pPm_2k

All U.S. Citizens Your Right to Vote will not be Abridged by any State Law, as it’s a God Granted Right and this is the Rule of Law and supersedes all others.
