Got questions about Rank Choice Voting, just watch this video. Rank Choice Voting just complicates your ballot and the time it will take to vote. Not to mention, the vote counts can go through multiple rounds of tabulations and reallocating votes. Decline to Sign the Petition – Just Say No
I want to say a big thank you to all of the community members, competitors, candidates, volunteers, vendors, DJ Dino and the Gila County Republican Committee leadership for making the First Annual Chili & Salsa Cook-Off a huge success! The event was held at the Gila County Republican Committee headquarters with about 250 people on hand. “Keep Gila County Red” was the theme and attendees had the opportunity to meet several candidates, register to vote and hear about upcoming volunteer opportunities.
Anyone wanting more information about future events please stop by the office at 438 S. Beeline Highway in Payson, follow the Gila County Republican Committee on Facebook or go to gilagop.org.

The Hamas invasion of Israel was not to overthrow a government but to kill every Jew they could find, all 9 million Israelis if they could! More than 1,000 innocents have been killed, including women and girls raped and then killed, and in the kibbutz of Kfar Aza, 40 babies were slaughtered, some beheaded.
Don’t believe it? All the evidence is on video broadcast by Hamas.
It was the largest mass killing of Jews since the Nazi Holocaust. And the dead included nearly three dozen Americans, with others kidnapped.
And we now know Iran supported and funded the ongoing massacre because Hamas leadership publicly thanked Iran for that assistance. Yet, President Biden, now more than a week into the war, has refused to publicly identify Iran as the chief supporter for the massacres. Nor did he publicly warn Iran that if any of the American hostages are killed, Iran will pay a severe price.
Further, Biden, with all the ongoing brutality and killing in Israel, continued to strongly defend his administration’s planned release of $6 billion to Iran. How stupid can one be?
The $6 billion should be commandeered and given to Israel.
And it has been revealed that the Biden administration has suspended many other sanctions that have allowed $70 billion to flow into Iran. Much goes to fund terrorism.
The Biden administration has already tried to interrupt Israel’s destruction of Hamas by approaching Turkey, which shelters Hamas members, just three days after the massacre and asked them to negotiate a cease-fire. That would be like asking a school shooter to stop killing until the police arrive.
By Day 6, Biden was next publicly pushing Israel to slow down the attacks on Hamas for humanitarian reasons.
Incomprehensible lack of leadership, and Biden’s failure continues.
More than a month ago, an Iranian spy ring was discovered in Washington with Iranian spies at the Pentagon and the State Department and included Biden’s own “special envoy” to Iran. The Biden administration tried to hush it up.
A true leader would already have an American naval fleet blockading all ship traffic coming out and going into Iran.
Biden’s delays in leadership continued. The president delayed his dispatch of Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who finally arrived in Israel six days after the attacks started.
Other countries immediately sent military aircraft to Israel to evacuate their citizens. Not Biden. Private groups are now chartering planes to evacuate Americans.
Biden has been dangerously lacking in projecting strength and leadership to the world and has failed to respond to crisis events quickly and properly. And the bad guys around the globe are taking advantage of this weakness and threatening the world.
America now faces a two-front international conflict scenario, one in Europe with Ukraine/Russia and one in the Middle East with Israel/Hamas. All caused by Biden’s lack of international leadership. Will a China–Taiwan conflict be a third front? Probably.
Under the Biden and democratic leadership (or lack of), our military has gone woke and is the weakest since World War II. Our military cannot meet recruitment goals and Biden is reducing the special forces by 10%. Munitions supply for the two wars cannot be replenished fast enough, thanks to the Biden administration.
Take notice. Today, the United States is at an extremely dangerous and weak place.
The United States must fully support Israel and allow them to completely eradicate the entire Hamas organization in a manner similar to how Donald Trump destroyed ISIS. Biden cannot be allowed to interfere with Israel’s operational and strategic goals in this conflict.
The Biden administration is collapsing, and President Biden needs to be replaced.
Voters going into the 2024 elections should understand that the Biden appeasement philosophy goes all the way down to local democratic candidates. None should be elected.

The Hamas invasion of Israel was not to overthrow a government, but to obliterate (kill) every Jew they could find. And more than a thousand innocents have been killed, including women and girls raped and then killed, and in the Kibbutz of Kfar Aza, 40 babies were slaughtered, some beheaded.

Nor did he publicly warn Iran that if any of the American hostages are killed, Iran will pay a severe price. A true leader would already have an American naval fleet blockading all shipping activity coming out of Iran.
More delays in leadership. Secretary of State Blinken was not dispatched to Israel until Tuesday evening – arriving in Israel Thursday, six days after the attacks started. Other countries quickly sent military aircraft to Israel to evacuate their citizens. Biden did not.

The Gila County Republican Party held the largest political event for Gila County on Friday, September 8, with their Reagan Day Luncheon. More than 250 people filled the ballroom at the Mazatzal Casino to hear guest speakers Arizona Congressional District 2 Representative Eli Crane, along with Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz, as well as Pinal County Sheriff and candidate for U.S. Senate, Mark Lamb.
The speaking event was a Fire Side chat format in lieu of direct speeches, with all three speakers engaging in answers to questions from the moderator. All three speakers commented on their concerns over the leadership of House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, the border, parental rights in schools and education, the Biden family crime syndicate, impeachment and the approaching debt ceiling vote, the need for a new budget and the lack of a balanced budget. They also expressed concern about the weaponizing of the government and the abuse of citizens, and the persecution of former President Trump while the Biden family crimes are far more serious and being ignored by both prosecutors and the media.
The next major Republican event will be the spring Lincoln Day Luncheon. The public can monitor Republican events by going to gilagop.org or call Republican Headquarters at 928-325-7302.

Not in Gila County!
I enjoyed reading the article titled “Independents are now Arizona’s biggest voter group” in the September 8th issue of the Roundup. The article described the growth of independent voter registrations in Arizona which now leads all political parties in the state.
But not in Gila County! Republican registrations reign above all.
Republican registrations are nearly double Democrats at 16,293.
Independents are second at about half the Republicans at 9,509.
Democrats are in third place at a distant 8,338 voter registrations.
Republicans are presently 93 percent ahead of Democrats in voter registrations.
In 2010, republicans held only 4 of the 16 elected offices in the county. Today Democrats hold only three.
In 2012 republicans elected the first republican as Sheriff since territorial days. He’s still in office.
Gila County’s three state legislative District 7 members have been all Republican since 2016.
Our Board of Supervisors has been all-Republican since 2016.
Two of the three Gila County Superior Court Judges are Republicans.
Republican Eli Crane knocked out democrat incumbent Tom O’Halleran to become Gila County’s U.S. Congressman.
This level of turnaround in voter registrations and republican officeholders has never been accomplished for any county in Arizona.
Republicans are known protectors of the Second Amendment, our freedom, and our liberties.
Republican President Trump gave us a roaring economy. The Biden Administration has crashed it and is led by a feeble old man who goes off script in the middle of an international news conference in Vietnam and tells reporters, “I don’t know about you, but I’m going to bed”. Will Biden be awake at 3 AM for an international crisis?
I call on the reader to plant their flag for the party that had a proven expanding economy, and a party that cares more about the middle class than democrats and register as a republican.
The Payson Republican Headquarters staff can help you fill out your registration forms. The office is located at 438 South Beeline Highway. Office hours are Wednesday through Friday, 10 AM to 4 PM, and Saturday 10 AM to 2 PM. Phone number: 928-325- 7302.
