I have personally witnessed Ms. McGuire’s dedication to her constituents and her efficient representation of the people before the legislature. Her ability to work on intergovernmental issues makes her an asset to the people, not just another politician. I have observed her work on committees that have accomplished legislative benefits for the people she represents and the general public as well. Ms. McGuire has championed the causes of the working class” She is determined and hardworking and takes an issue and follows through with it to its successful conclusion. When elected, Pinal County will once again have a responsive person that will work diligently to improve the efficiency, accountability and responsiveness of state government.
The other candidate, Joe Ortiz, has misdirected the scrutiny of the people. Recent articles about his past behavior are a matter of public record. The Casa Grande Police Case Number 05-001121, which is a matter of public record, and previously stated, says that even his own brother questions his past personal conduct. I will not go into any further comments on this subject. The record speaks for itself. I will state that I have not heard of Mr. Ortiz’s record as a school board member other than he votes no on every issue. His qualifications compared to Ms. McGuire’s are up to the public to judge. Actually, I believe there is no comparison.
On the other hand, the facts about Ms. McGuire are clear. She is an outstanding person with credentials that are above reproach and will champion the causes of the people. Her convictions and personal courage and commitment are the qualities we look for in people who seek public office. Ms. McGuire has all of these above qualities, plus the determination to see things through to completion in the face of difficult obstacles! She is truly “a person of the people, for the people.”
