Doug Ducey: Best Republican for Arizona governor – End Game? Ducey’s Pension & Operational Plan will destroy Corrections

Doug Ducey has done a masterful job preparing for this moment. He lined up support from Arizona’s business community, as well as from the state’s top GOP political leaders from social to fiscal conservatives.

You won’t find too many lists of supporters that include U.S. Rep. Trent Franks and Lea Marquez Peterson, the head of the Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Cathi Herrod and Jerry Colangelo. Former U.S. Jon Kyl and the leader of the Tea Party Patriots. There’s even the Big Unit, former Diamondbacks pitcher Randy Johnson. Moving this state forward requires the ability to bring together diverse coalitions. Ducey has shown he can do it.

Perhaps most impressive, Ducey has studied the art of reforming government. He spent time with conservatives who have done it, including Indiana Govs. Mike Pence and Mitch Daniel and Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin.

THIS REPORT IS DETRIMENTAL TO ALL STATE EMPLOYEES, PUBLIC SECTOR AND THOSE EMPLOYEES WITH PUBLIC FUNDED PENSIONS AND RETIREMENT PLANS. IN ADDITION GOVERNMENT SERVICES WILL BE PRIVATIZED AND A REDUCTION IN FORCE WILL OCCUR.

CRUNCH TIME ARIZONA – TIME TO COUNT THE VOTES – Game Changer Coming Up

48076a

Within the next few weeks, the destiny of the Arizona Department of Corrections will unfold – We are preparing for a nightmare that the director gets another 4 years to destabilize the agency and prepare the transition to privatization earlier than scheduled because the new governor will accelerate the process if that governor is not Ken Bennett.

Make no doubt about it:
Doug Ducey will privatize and reshape the retirement plans while dropping salaries and stipends
Christine Jones will privatize and reduce state spending and do nothing to improve workplace conditions
Scott Smith will privatize and reduce state spending on prisons
Frank Rigss and Andrew Thomas – although long shots will privatize and harm correctional benefits.

KEN BENNETT IS THE ONLY CANDIDATE TO STATE CLEARLY HE WILL BRING DIGNITY AND RESPECT BACK TO CORRECTIONAL EMPLOYEES.

Don’t let the nightmare come true – save your job, your career, your benefits and vote smart – vote for the man who will preserve your employment and status.

Corrections Employees – Know your rights about Employee Drug Testing procedures – Read and learn

A guest commenter sent this email in to warn Corrections Employees of a new bully tactic -

ADOC’s random drug testing has begun, but they’re taking it too far in Tucson and soon a complex near you.
So far 3 employees have been told by the Warden to get their prescriptions changed to show not to be taken except for weekends or don’t go back to work. This is a Kind of a bully intervention. The policy even says anything but marihuana gets cleared as negative with a valid prescription. The rules are clear – here is your reference –

Generic website for a bit – Department Order 522, specifically 522.07 1.9.5 Report test results as negative if there is a legitimate medical explanation for the positive test result, with the exception of medical marijuana for those who hold a safety-sensitive position. Do not be bullied

Arizona Politician Runs Controversial Racist Ad In Race For Governor

racistad-665x385

Andrew Thomas, a republican candidate for Governor of Arizona, has begun a televised ad campaign targeting illegal immigrants, the “gay lobby,” and liberal judges. The ad, which runs only thirty seconds, ends with a image of the Mexican flag shaped like the state of Arizona with a circle with a line through it over the image, symbolizing that Mexicans are not allowed in the state.

Agency Leadership – If you want change you have to do something about it.

Change in leadership should not be for light or transient causes……we are disposed to suffer while evils are sufferable, rather than right ourselves because we are used to our situation.

But eventually the long train of abuses means that change must occur. The history of our current leadership is well established and we could accept his tyrannical direction…….but when I hear blatant manipulation and outright aversion to the truth change must occur.

Last night the news discussed the teacher who was physically and sexually assaulted. Our leadership has stated that there were no lapses in security or staffing (ad lib); further the leadership has commented that we must accept bad things happen in prison.
But if we accept both the above what purpose do prisons serve if we cannot avoid these matters and why cannot we not accept for these events to occur?

For our leadership it has become plainly evident we are disposable…..the inmates can do bad things and its Ok cause we are in prison……..it is time for COs to stand up and be heard……if Bennett will change our leadership he has my vote…….it is time for good people to stand against the evil of the day
