[Editor: We know this man and think he is an excellent candidate to take out the very establishment, Paul Boyer, in LD20]
For Immediate Release
Charles A. Loftus, Ph.D. announces switch to Arizona Senate.
District 20 - 2018 Election
Phoenix, Arizona - February 7, 2018
Due to the changing landscape in both the Federal and State legislatures, it has become obvious that to best serve the people of District 20 and Arizona, Charles Loftus should pursue the Senate rather than the House. He is not a political insider and is the true conservative in this race. As a result, Dr. Loftus is curtailing the run for State House LD-20 and announces his candidacy for State Senate LD-20.
Charles Loftus, Ph.D., is an Arizona native, born in Nogales and raised in Phoenix. He entered law enforcement after high school and has been an Arizona law enforcement officer for over 30 years, having served with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, Arizona State University Police, the Arizona Attorney General’s Office and the Office of Inspector General at DES. He earned his Ph.D. in Public Administration with an emphasis on Criminal Justice Public Policy (police and public corruption) from Arizona State University. He also earned a Master in Public Administration with an emphasis on organizational behavior and public policy analysis from Arizona State University.
He became an instructor with the Arizona State University School of Criminology and Criminal Justice teaching counter-terrorism, domestic terrorism, intelligence, and research methods. He is the director of an intensive study abroad program through ASU that takes students to Israel to learn about counter-terrorism, Islamic fascism, jihadism, martyrdom and emergency responses to terrorism.
Dr. Loftus has witnessed firsthand how Arizona government has worked and at times failed its citizens. Over the years, he has had to implement what previous legislators enacted. He has been witness to the many faults and corruption within Arizona government and it is something he passionately wants to change, to improve. He believes that there is a effort in this country that is dedicated to restoring our Constitution and the Bill of Rights and he strongly feels that he can contribute to it. He feels that in this way and many others, he can help his neighbors in LD20 where he and his family have lived for the last 25 years.
He would describe himself as a Republican Conservative with very pro law and order leanings. He would like to help expose and eliminate corruption in government. Like you, he is fed up with politicians that say anything to get elected then support the lobbyist who provides them the most.
Please go to the “Loftus 2018” website at http://www.loftus4az.com . There’s lots more information there. He is an Arizonan who is tough, smart and passionate about Arizona. He's a true conservative and not a political insider. He's also the most qualified to work for his district and state.
