Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
[Editor: You will remember that it was Sen. Sylvia Allen who called fellow Republicans Nazis in a meeting of the NCRC because they were representing the Arizona Republican Assembly. She said then she had been a member in the past. Our bet is that she would not be accepted as a member now! Not for her Nazi comment, although that would be sufficient cause to refuse her membership since that organization is committed to Republican Platform patriots. But this letter supports other actions by Sen. Allen's recent off-the-rails behavior.]
State Senator Sylvia Allen, LD6, Snowflake, last week formed a group calling themselves “the Newly Formed Republicans of Navajo County”. Now this is very misleading, since they have no authority with Navajo County Republican Committee or any part of elections here in Navajo County.
To become an active political committee, you must file with the state and county as well as file financial reports with the state.
Now if Senator Allen is collecting donations at these new meetings, it is illegal.
The Navajo County Election Director, along with Chairman Slaton of the authorized Republican Committee of Navajo County, is alarmed by this development by Senator Allen.
We have already had one person being misled by Senator Allen in her new group, believing her group was the offical Republican Committee, according to Chairman Slaton. [This smacks of fraud on the part of the Senator to us]
It is well known that Senator Allen does not support the current Executive Board of the Navajo County Republican Committee due to their involvement in draining the AZGOP swamp and the [removal of] AZGOP Chairman Lines from office because of his failure to follow the AZGOP Bylaws, as well as violating State Statutes.
Senator Allen is in support of not following State Statutes governed by the AZGOP. She openly did not support Chairman Slaton's motion at the Flagstaff statutory meeting for Chairman Lines to turn over the records which is required by our Bylaws, as well State Statutes. (AZ. Attorney General’s office is looking into this matter).
During the time all this was all going on, Senator Allen was crying “unitity” but, not supporting the NCRC Chairman. She insisted we support Chairman Lines and to ignore his failures to uphold the law!
This has been a continuing pattern by Senator Allen over the past few years where she has become involved with the McCainites who are running the party. Also, she has not denounced Senator Jeff Flake, for his lack of support for the President and open borders, etc. Therefore, she supports him defacto.
Senator Allen also went back on her word to Representative Brenda Barton (LD6), when she did not switch with Brenda to run for the House seat and Brenda for the Senate seat. Many years ago, Senator Allen, Brenda Barton, and Chester Crandall (now deceased) all agreed to switch when their term limits were up. Senator Allen needs to keep this verbal commitment to Representative Barton, which will in turn keep a strong conservative voice here in Navajo County, Coconino County, Gila County, Yavapai County.
She recently decided not to do so. She even denied she ever agreed to this. We were privy to these conversations as stong supporters of Allen, Barton & Crandell holding townhalls and events all over Navajo County for the 2010, 2012 & 2014 election cycles. I honestly don’t believe Senator Allen would be reneging on her promise if Senator Crandell was still alive.
Senator Allen’s newly formed group is not the offcial Republican Committee of Navajo County. Four years ago the same group of people took over the Navajo County Republican Committee. The results were corruption and destroying the Republican base up here with the former Chairman and Executive Committee who are being investigated by the Navajo County attorney’s office for misuse of funds ($23,000 missing funds).
The Executive Committee of the Navajo County Republican Committee and other committee’s in LD6 strongly suggest Senator Allen live up to her commitment as promised, to switch and run for the House seat and let Brenda Barton run for Senate.
If Senator Allen decides not to honor her commitment, we at the Executive Committee of the Navajo County Republican Committee can not support her.
Her actions are dividing the Republicans and could lead to a Democrat win for Senate & House of LD6.
Navajo County Republican County
[Editor: A few days ago we said that Republicans excel at eating their own. Sen. Allen has just proven that once again! She apparently forgets she works for we the people and is not elected to defy them.]
Drain the Arizona Swamp. I don't know what happens in the minds of these politicians. They run as conservatives and then do this? Isn't she the one accusing other republicans of being nazis? I just looked up that national popular vote bill from last year and she co-sponsored that piece of garbage. We need to be sweeping out most of those in our state legislature and let's start with CQ who probably handles senator Allen. This sounds like one of his tricks learned at the knee of Mccain.
I HAVE DECIDED CQ IS ONE OF OUR BIGGEST PROBLEMS....WE NEED SOMEONE TO CONSULT ON CAMPAIGNS AND REPLACE HIM....SYLVIA USED TO BE DECENT BUT EVER SINCE CRANDALL PASSED SHE IS A NEW POWER HUNGRY RINO....STEVE SLATON NEEDS TO RUN FOR THAT OFFICE!!!!!
Dear Senator Allen, You have turned a very bad corner. You were once respected by all but now, you have become some other person. I believe Ms. Goodchild is correct, you have gotten in with some vicious and grasping people. I do so urge you to shuck that new attitude you have acquired and go back to the lovely person you once were. Please return to serving the people who elected you instead of fighting them. I can no longer have any affection toward you. I believe Ms. Barton should run against you and I believe she would unseat you. What a disappointment you have become, Senator.
Sen. Allen voted for the amended HB 2184 to Strip the Supt. of Public Instructions Authority and hand it over to the Appointed Czars on the Board of Education even after hearing citizens speak against it, after that failed to pass in the legislature she then voted for SB 1469 doing the same thing and the Gov. signed it, she also voted to putting Prop 123 on the ballot which took funds from the State Trust which Sec. Dewit had opposed. She has also helped to block some legislation to stop the further entrenchment of Common Core and there's so much more, it's time for many in State office to go and also others who think like her not be elected, check out who runs their campaigns and then you'll know who controls AZ.

Dr. Ben Carson nailed it when he said at AZ GOP HQ "We have some serious swamp draining to do right here". The Top Brass of the party were all in the room. We shall see what AG Jeff Sessions finds in public records. There are a lot of "Fraudsters" to expose. I am doing my part, by sending details directly to President Trump, by way of his family, rather than through government channels. Navajo County has its own shadow government and I have proved it to them. How long will it take for them to "Liberate" our small towns from gangs? Drug Cartel money is a BIG part of the problem!
I so agree with Jan's comment! I use to have so much respect for Sylvia but when she turned on all of us conservative Republicans & started a campaign against the Supt. of Schools who was voted in & beat her competitor (don't remember who that was) I knew she had become a self adoring person I could no longer support!! She, by the way started her demise when she got her nephew, Jeff Flake to replace her!! I was there & always felt uncomfortable with him. We call him jeff snowflake!
Drain the cesspool! Can no longer call it a swamp!
I am the NCRC Secretary in Navajo County. What went on at our August meeting in Show Low, was uncalled for! (the whole Nazi situation by Mrs. Allen) It was very unprofessional, and embarrassing. I personally was offended by what took place at that meeting, and hope it never happens again. As a Republican, and an American, we deserve to be treated as human beings. We all have a right to voice our opinions, but do so in a manner of civility, and regard. You would think someone in her position would use better choice of words, but that wasn't the case. I believe anything is possible with the right foundation and hard-work. With that being said, I would love to see a politician in that seat that is Honorable, Dignified, Noble, and Honest. More than ever, it's definitely time to Drain the Swamp.
This morning, we sent the link to this article to Sen. Sylvia Allen and asked her to comment. We promised to post her response without edits or editorial comment. As of 9:00pm tonight, Tuesday, we have received no response.
The Ruling Class Establishment Elites stay in power through a lack of realistic Term Limits. We need to replace our "Musical Chairs" system of government which allows elected officials to switch places when their 4 terms roll around, Going from the senate to the house and vice versa is not Term Limits. In my humble opinion, that process and the money and consultants that hover around our legislature is damaging our state government in a very Deep way.
Chairman Slaton has had the courage to stand against the Ruling Class Establishment, so what do they do? They form a new committee and proceed on their way as if we the people should not be allowed the leadership we have chosen through our vote. Thank you for staying strong Chairman Slaton, and keep foremost in your mind that you are not alone.
Hi Tom; Yes we have a ruling class and most think those in office are even conservatives, however the games they all play to keep the power and then do the bidding of the Elites and not us has to change, and the only way to do that is to remove them.
