The Arizona Republican Assembly, also known as AzRA, is set to elect new officers for the Executive Committee at their annual Convention on Saturday, May 20, 2017 at the Paradise Valley Community Center.  All paid members are eligible to vote in this election.

At the same meeting, the body will be voting on new Bylaws.  These Bylaws have already been modified and approved by the Board of Directors at an all day meeting on May 6, 2017.  That Board is made up of the Executive Committee, all Chapter Presidents and all State Directors.

AzRA is positioning itself to grow its membership among conservative Republicans to become again a force in Republican politics in Arizona.  The sad state of the Arizona Republican Party and its refusal to follow their own Bylaws as well as what most people would consider common decency has left a void in the Republican Party that AzRA aims to fill.  AzRA says they are the Republican wing of the Republican Party!

AzRA is not new to Arizona Politics.  For many years, it was the most influential organization in party politics.  The organization was operated by stellar names in the Arizona Republican Party who were instrumental in electing true conservatives and influencing conservative legislation.  The organization lay dormant for a few years but in 2014, Thayer Verschoor became President and reconstituted the organization with only twelve members.  That quickly grew to over 400 members.

Candidates:  (Floor Nominations Accepted)


Jim O'Connor, Scottsdale/Fountain Hills Chapter


Walt Steiner, West Valley Chapter


Ardith Hildebrant, Scottsdale/Fountain Hills Chapter (Ardith has been serving as Assistant Treasurer)

National Director (vote 1):

Linda Brickman, North Central Phoenix Chapter

Irving Scott, West Pinal/Casa Grande Chapter

Butch Kuentzler, West Valley Chapter

Those interested conservatives who want to abandon do-nothing organizations and be a part of an action oriented organization can contact AzRA at for more information.  All new applicants will be vetted.

I've heard of this organization, all good.  Surprised to see Linda Brickman is a member and is running for office.  She has quite a reputation even I have heard about.  Hope that election goes well, as in NOT Linda Brickman.

I don't know all the people running for the At Large post, but I do know Irving Scott.  If you are looking for an honest hard working person for the job.  Look no further, Irving is the guy. 

Arizona Freedom Alliance knows all candidates.  We support Irving Scott.  Irving is a great guy but the reason we support him is that a look at the Exe Com board shows a preponderance of members from Maricopa County.  We believe the ExeCom as well as the membership would be better served if they add some diversity to the EC.  Scott lives in Western Pinal County.  We hope Irving gets the job. 



My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.

The best in books to make every conservative start thinking in new ways about America and the world being controlled by the Obama Administrations AND Republicans and Democrats.  Some surprises are in store for those who look!




Suppose the earth and its inhabitants exist in order to identify just what causes mankind continually to suffer so many troublesome problems and afflictions.

At present, most persons decide to act on whatever happens with their thoughts. But doing so puts them in competition with one of the creator's natural laws first identified by Richard Wetherill.


The answer is not complicated. People must stop basing their behavior on their personal thinking. Instead they have to act on the creator's thoughts, here being described in the English language as rational, honest, and morally right.

No longer should people reason from their concepts of good and evil, right and wrong, likes and dislikes, or whatever else comes to mind. Instead, mankind must think the creator's thoughts. That enables them successfully to do what is rational, honest, and morally right.

That may seem incredible until understood. But, consider that it is the way that mankind can escape the death penalty everybody has been paying since the days that people were created.

Join the survivors who have stopped their personal thinking. They now base their behavior on the creator's guiding thoughts to act in a way that is rational, honest, and morally right.
