"Don't. We don't usually talk about era zona on this podcast but it's It sounds very interesting to me. And i really want to share what you've been doing with my listeners. So let me get to my First question would have been active in politics finance business israel advocacy name. A few of the hats. You've worn how all of that experience lead you to be. The founding director general of the arizona israel trade and investment office will of all. I just want to say thanks for having me on and more importantly i've been a fan of what you've been doing and in a way It's very similar in in many respects. Would you've been doing is building bridges between The united states and even beyond and israel maybe through taxes but beyond taxes. It's about relationships and people and you've been creating those connections For decades and this is very similar The viability and the future of our state in israel is going to be very much dependent upon term. i call economic zionism. Which almost the next wave of what's critical. Which is ensuring that. The state of israel and our economy has the sustainability and capacities and relationships with with partners and allies and friends around the world. And that's how we're going to ensure that israel's economic viability economic capacity is shared. And so that's why it's it's really important to build these kind of relationships if anything. The pandemic has shown us that when people can't get on a plane and they can't travel they can't make their own relationships having these kind of almost ambassadors or or relationship builders between entities and states is critical but the idea is is all the credit goes to the governor of arizona whose Who really turn the state around. Many people i hadn't heard of arizona as a place to do business they thought of arizona just like people hadn't heard of israel as a place to do business. They thought it was. The you know the the holy land and a great place of of spiritual significance but most people if you would ask them in the seventies and eighties wind up said israel's the place to do business but this country turned around the same thing happened in arizona. Thanks to governor ducey which is in a way he refers to the state of arizona as the startup state and israel the startup nation. So the idea that there are two states who share an understanding of the importance of of innovation and entrepreneurship It's really a natural natural relationship. So he he really wanted to set up this trade office and there's only one other country in the world where arizona has a trade office which is mexico which is its largest trading partner. And so the idea to build a bridge between the state of arizona in the state of israel His with these state with with the assistance. Of course of sandra watson. Who's the ceo of the arizona commerce authority who's the leading economic development engine. And so there's been. Arizona has has emerged as one of the tech centers And that's starting to hit the wires everywhere. And if you look if you just do a quick google.

"I have much more to ask you, Um Because of this reaction from Governor Ducey and Rusty Bowers, shutting down the capital as if I mean they could still work, But I mean, I think it's a big symbolic gesture right there that they won't order this stuff and Rusty Bowers press release saying. We can't overturn it. We can't do anything. The president wants to have a constitutional scholar gonna have on tomorrow. Says Yes, they can. But doesn't that just show you that the governor and Rusty Bowers? At least they literally don't want the president to win. They're not even trying. They're not trying. I mean, I've talked to rusty on look shutting down in this. I just This is important for people understand? Shutting down the capital is shutting it down. Physically, It doesn't prevent them from doing the work necessary to get it. Forensic audit done. It just doesn't And it just It just breaks my heart on one hand, and then another. On the other hand, it just makes me mad as hops. Because we have got we really truly that need to do a forensic audit it Z seems like such a simple thing to realize. And, um you know, you do have The chief executive of the state that has been basically silent on that, not I should even say silent. I mean, bye bye. I thought it was a real symbolic thing when he Basically signed the certification at the same time you got Giuliani and company over there, presenting evidence on on anomalies in the election. Isn't that symbolic? That you're willing to basically stick your thumb in the eye of the Arizona people as well as the president, United States. It. It is and then Rusty Bowers At his press release on Friday, the speaker of the House, Rusty Bowers, downplayed what took place, Hey said Monday at an unofficial public gathering hosted by a small group of legislators. I mean, you want to talk about downplaying the evidence, he did mention 11 iota yet America but county Chairwoman America but County Republican Party chairman saying she physically saw on Dominion voting systems. Trump votes switched to Biden. And yet not a peep about that from juicy and Bowers because I mean, listen, they don't want trump to win. That's just the way it is. And they're they're never Trumpers. Uh, you know what we I was at that hearing, and I will tell you Some of the things that I've heard were so powerful and we hadn't heard those before. I mean, you think about it, would you? We've been talking in general terms right? We've been talking about there's this problem or that problem. We started getting in a specific acts of fraud, or, um, basically difficulties in and anomalies in the election. That is what's so Doug on important is we saw something that we haven't seen before. And, um, you know, let's go through and let's prove this thing one way or the other and you can't prove it. You people keep saying, Where's the evidence? Well, there's there's bits and pieces of evidence all over the place. There's there's hundreds of affidavits off fraud that took place. Well, guess what. That's enough to open up the investigation. And the best way to investigate this and I keep is I'm one no piano in this is a forensic audit of this thing. Let's go examine the signatures likes examine the names. Let's see who's that really was on the on the roles of the balance of the election rules. Let's see who was on it was dead. I mean, we have bill, believe it or not. We have a bill that was introduced this weekend in Congress, saying You can't vote if you're dead Act. That's the name of the bill. You can't vote. If you're dead Act and we wait. We have to do that. Because, um, you got voter roll problems. And this could all be solved. I mean, if they would have started this thing two weeks ago, we'd be done. We have put in bed to bed one way or the other in Arizona. But now that way, Yeah, and they're not doing okay. Hang on from If you don't mind Congressman just for a couple of minutes because I have two quick break, But I want to ask you about you know if there's enough time to do an audit, Can we get it all done by December? 14th one of the next steps you think the Legislature should do and also this covert situation because the flu seems to really not be here. On. We were lied to about that. And I wonder if we can get the same thing here in Arizona. They got in Florida, which is to identify the cycle threshold, whether or not you know the the the cycle threshold amount. They have to actually publicly disclose that in Florida, can they do that here? Because there's too many false positives?

Amid surge in cases, Arizona readies new push to slow COVID-19 spread
"Nearly ninety percent of Arizona's I see beds are full Republican Governor Doug Ducey. ducey faces widespread outrage for downplaying the virus, and even obstructing local officials from acquiring masks in June as case numbers began to explode. Do see reverse course and allowed mayors to issue their own virus guidelines under growing pressure, but he resisted calls to pass a statewide mask mandate or reimposes stay at home order, which expired in May with little restriction on the state's reopening. Facing rising numbers June do see ordered bars and gyms to close again, but Arizona residents say the actions are too little too late. The family of a sixty five year old Mexican. American man who died of Covid, nineteen in Phoenix, is accusing Arizona. State officials of being directly responsible for his death in a scathing obituary in the Arizona Republic, the family of Of Mark, Anthony or Keesa wrote quote. His death is due to the carelessness of the politicians who continue to jeopardize the health of Brown bodies through a clear lack of leadership refusal to acknowledge the severity of the crisis and inability and unwillingness to give clear and decisive direction on how to minimize risk. This is or Qisas daughter Kristin an interview with A. Republican. Governor DC's got blood on a fan. He was late to close down the state. He was early to open X and. The manner in which he opened allowing things to go back as normal is, in my opinion, the reason why my dad is being buried today. We'll for more. We're going to Tucson to speak with a local leader. WHO's been standing up to Governor Doug Ducey. That's Mayor Ricky Romero. She is the first Latina and the first woman to be elected mayor of Tucson. She was previously. Tucson city council member for over a decade, the daughter of migrant workers we welcome you to democracy now Mayor Ramiro. Your thoughts on governor Ducey's responsibility. What do you want to see the state? OF ARIZONA DO? And what are you doing in Tucson? Good Morning Amy. Thank you so much for having me this morning. We have been in a state of crisis. Since governor ducey decided to hastily reopen the state. We were in a very good place. Coming to a plateau here in the city of Tucson relocated in Pima County in pima. Cownie, we were seeing twenty twenty four cases a day. It was a plateau now. We are seeing almost three hundred cases a day in Pima County. In a county of million people we. We are we see anywhere from five to twenty ICU beds, which is very very concerning in straining our doctors and nurses at our hospitals. We jumped up in front of Governor Ducey, a few mayors Mayor Gayle from Phoenix. Mayor Evans from flagstaff in myself Joe jumped ahead of the governor to call the stay at home. orders in to close down bars back in March He took our cue few days later, and with his executive order he tied the hands of mayors in cities and towns and county and county health departments throughout the state by preempting us from from doing anything that he wouldn't do. Most recently, he untied the hands of mayors. In counties throughout the state to do mandatory mask ordinances. Throughout the state, but what we have been seeing with Governor Ducey is a microcosm of what has been happening with trump in his federal response to this pandemic, which is tepid, a tepid response a pushback on science and what public health officials recommend that we do. Every day that governor Ducey Wade's. We see three thousand cases in Arizona and. And the crisis continues more lives lost, and so what we have been done doing here in Tucson is basically pushing the governor to do the right thing because it's a very real threat. If we do move ahead in front of him. The state legislature, the Republican controlled state legislature passed a bill about three years ago fourteen eighty seven that if any city does anything, any law that preempts the state that are stayed shared revenue could be pulled from us, and those are millions and millions of dollars. That, we could potentially lose and so in this crisis we see ourselves as mayors. In fear in fear for the lives of our communities in fear of for the inability for us to be able to do anything so, what mayors across Arizona and I have been doing his publicly pressuring the governor to the right thing. The one thing that he could do that could help is do. Is Institute a mandatory mask? Executive Order Statewide and he refuses to even do that.
Arizona seeing highest number of new coronavirus cases per capita
"Joining now from where things stand is to reject director for the Arizona Public Health. Association will humble. He's also the former director of the Arizona Department of Health Services and I know that. We've got data reportings very lumpy, and we're coming off a holiday weekend, and so the picture is not as clear on this Tuesday, as it normally would, because of those reporting delays, but this jumped out to me as of today Arizona not the cove infections per capita of any state, but also the most of any state has ever had. We hit five hundred and twenty eight per million, new. York topped out at five nine on April tenth. What what does it look like to you in Arizona, right now. That really says it all, doesn't it? I mean everybody knows what happened in New York and now it's happening in Arizona and who would have thought that it would happen in a state like Arizona but his shows you that the policy decisions that you're elected. Officials make have real life consequences and the decisions, the decisions in May and early June or lack of decisions are really what set in the cascade of events that ended up where we are today with a graph just saw. We're also seeing an inflection point in deaths in Arizona. We saw it also just I just saw about an hour ago. I think Texas reported its highest fatality level. I'm a very long time today. There's been this lag. Obviously between cases and battalions were catching more cases. There's a hope that fatalities won't be as high right now. What are you seeing the fatality data? Where do you think this is going? So. There's a couple of things that may be moderating the death rate here in Arizona. Number one is that the new cases are really exploding in twenty and thirty year old people who are. Less likely to end up in an ICU bed, and less likely to die. It happens, but it's less likely the other thing is that clinicians are getting better at treating people for covid. Nineteen at the beginning was just supportive care now there's a couple of medications that can improve the course of the illness, so as physicians learn a little bit more about how to treat illness I think that may be working in our favor a little bit and finally. I I'm hoping that this also represents an improvement in infection control within assisted living and skilled nursing facilities I. Don't know that for a fact. I do know that they are trying harder than they were and personal. Protective equipment is more available, but really there's no substitute for weekly testing of staff that work in those facilities. I don't think that that's happening. In terms of testing seeing, it's really maddening. We're seeing bottlenecks again, and you're seeing that in that positivity rate going up, and it's upright now. It's almost thirty percent I think in Arizona I mean the the recommendation the are you want the positivity right below three percent, which basically shows that you're testing enough? The MARICOPA county reported Covid, nineteen positivity rate of twenty eight point eight percent. This is the Phoenix Mayor tweeting. We've seen testing sites where people waited for more than eight hours in one hundred and ten degree heat to get tested. This is unacceptable. Arezzo needs more testing and context racing to slow the spread. This seems like a major major and acute failure right now as as the state tries to get a hold of this. positivity rate is off the charts, and as you said, it needs to be ten times lower than it is right now. We're at twenty five percent positive. The next highest state I think is Texas and Florida. They're in the the teens, so we're much higher that we need to be on that regard. The other thing is that our turnaround time on these tests is really pretty bad like we're looking at turnaround times between getting A. A sample collected from a patient and getting those results back from the lab of seven eight nine, even fourteen days, and what that means. Is that your contact tracing capacity? Your contact tracers can't do their job because by the time they get the data. The patient has already either gone back to work infected their roommates or co workers, and and it doesn't matter how good contact tracing capacity is if you're getting the results that late. It's going to be ineffective at Saint. We've gotta just get more tests, but faster testing. You know months ago. There's a lot of debate about the Swedish model Sweden was one of the few countries that had had you know. Had the virus didn't shutdown did close some things here? There? Make some efforts, and there was some question about. Can you avoid the worse consequences both economically and also of sort of social and physical and emotional health of lockdowns, and I your piece today basing no, it's not it's a cautionary tale. It was sort of a failed experiment. It does seem to me. We're headed towards the sun belt. Sweden experiment in the US I mean governor Ducey does seem reluctant to take any more steps and he has. We're just GONNA. Find out how bad it can get back. I Isaac, we adopted the Swedish model right around Memorial Day to be honest with. I've said that publicly that I think what we're really doing is going down the Swedish road and. And what we see is we can learn. The previous segment you talked about learning for mothers. You know I this is an example where we could have learned from others and I hope other people learn from us because this experiment isn't going well.

"Senator cinema and governor Ducey and senator cinema is wants to shut everything down she has been very good and and I I will tell you I I'm trying to find a way to explain this to you I have known senator cinema for a long time casually I don't know her very well but I've got to know her a little bit we have actually done a few events together on veterans services she has dedicated a lot of time when she was in the house of representatives to helping veteran groups which is a big part of what I love to do and we would find ourselves at events together and actually get along very well I I she's a smart very easy to know fun person to be around but as far as politics go she has become kind of a chameleon in my opinion she was when she was in the Arizona state legislature she was a self affirmed communist and does you know when you're young you say and do things you wouldn't say or do when you get a bit older and she did and then she ran for the house and she didn't necessarily go as far left as everybody thought she was based on our experience in the state legislature and then she ran for the state for the US Senate and ran as an independent I mean she Calder's I'm independent just like Arizona by the way it works so well for her my projection where was the Democrats to be doing that all over Arizona and if you look at the latest mark Kelly adds he actually uses the word independent in his ad they don't say anything about Democrats as a matter of fact his ads are Hey listen you know Arizona they don't care about when you go fly into combat you don't care if they're Republican or Democrat and I'm going to be independent that's what cares in cinema was able to do but we you know people that know her know that she is you know left wing and she's a Democrat nothing wrong with it it's just what what she is who she is and so now there's a rift where she is coming out against governor Ducey and she wants she says he's making mistakes he's made it clear he likes to see making a mistake by opening up the state's economy even to the limited extent that he's doing it she took advantage of this didn't like the press conference which a lot of us didn't like the press conference a couple weeks ago and so she says that her reasoning is that she wants to keep everything closed down and keep people on the public dole a bit longer I have no idea what she what number she's looking at so cinemas criteria for the shutdown she wants the appearing of which infections hospitalizations and deaths are reclining which is what we have Modica models that predict no uptick in such measurements now there is not been a model that's been right yet let's be honest we've looked at the models and they've changed first there was gonna be millions of people dead then there was going to be just a few thousand people dead now it might be twice as many people dead as we predicted before none of the models of proven right we are looking at trends and what we were hoping to happen happened they were right in the projections the White House doctors Berks and and thought she were right here in the state of Arizona Dr Chris was right we were told as we went into the shut down you're doing the right thing and the numbers you are about to see are going to be really bad so these bad numbers are result of testing and the predictors we saw before so we know what's gonna look bad in the next few weeks but after they shut down we're going to see a steady decline in those numbers that's what the predictions were from the White House that's what the models were showing here in Arizona and that's exactly what's happening yesterday in Arizona there was a reported number of testing the reported numbers of tests overnight in Arizona where is twelve thousand five hundred and five over six thousand test for covert nineteen and over six thousand tests serology for the antibodies they're a bit over a hundred and sixteen thousand tests for a covert nineteen in Arizona over thirty three thousand tests four serology so we've got about a twenty five percent rate of testing right now for serology and three point three percent of the public in Arizona's testing positive for having the antibodies only seven point seven percent of the public in the six thousand tests for covert nineteen yesterday came back as positive tests seven point seven percent we are seeing as they've expanded testing outside of the people that are severely symptomatic we are seeing a steep decline in the numbers of people that are infected that is great news that means that the shut down flatten the curve like they said it would all of those indicators are showing that that's the case the other thing we now know that we didn't know speak exactly before is that the people that are dying from this and the Arizona numbers match up pretty closely with the national numbers the death rate is the highest by a long margin with people over the age of sixty five years old people over the age of sixty five have eighty percent of the deaths in Arizona eighty when you factor in fifty five plus that makes up ninety one percent of the deaths that means the work force in the state of Arizona the people between the ages of let's say twenty and fifty five years old are making up ninety percent of overall deaths forty seven deaths across the state in total under the age of fifty five that's not skewing the numbers that's not playing one side against the other that's what we now know how do you shut down an entire economy when you see the highest risk people are over sixty five it makes no sense none this is as political as the day is long coming up in a moment is it bomber speaks out what did the former president had to say about covert nineteen in the handling of it we'll get

back on on that and thought you know I really should have done I should have contacted a lawyer but the other reason is it's not just about contacting a lawyer it's about contacting the right lawyer I had a great meeting with James and we talked about what he wants to do in helping people to make sure that they care for all of your needs when you're injured severely to allow you to heal and

"Going out governor Ducey with his coronavirus briefing and our federal partners I want to begin by thanking the citizens of Arizona for their hard work they're responsible behavior we announced the stay home stay healthy stay connected order on March thirtieth and it's been an incredible couple of months in in the state of Arizona we are making some progress we want to share with you the the data that we have where we are today the information that we're looking at the guidance that we're receiving from our federal partners and and what is possible in the future you'll probably notice on the soft side not only does it say stay home stay healthy stay connected it also says return stronger and that's going to be a part of the objective and and the theme that we we talk about here so I want to begin with thanking our federal partners we get a video tele conference once or twice a week with president trump vice president pence doctor Deborah Burke's Dr Anthony Fauci secretary Mnuchin secretary aides are of course Dr Kristen general Mike weir are always on those calls part of where we are today is as a result of that federal guidance the began its fifteen days to slow the spread and then turned into thirty days to slow the spread that turned into what we have today is the guidance around the stay home stay healthy stay connected order until April thirtieth what you see in front of you here right now is the White House guidance going forward lot of verbiage on the slide this is a public document anybody that wants this document can go to opening up America again just search it on Google it will posted on AZ health dot golf and all these things will be at Arizona connected it dot org is well but what's what's important here is really the White House proposes state or regional gating criteria but I think it's the line underneath that that I want to highlight there's flexibility for states to tailor application of these criteria to whatever the local circumstances are you know my focus is not a hundred percent on the state of Arizona our circumstances are different than other states and we're gonna use this combination of symptoms cases and hospitals to make decisions going forward I really appreciate the flexibility that our federal partners you gave and in presenting this guidance forward so our approach going forward will will be faced it'll be based on up to date data and rowdiness it will mitigate the risk of resurgence we have come a long way in a short period of time as a state it's banned by no lack of sacrifice or effort from our citizens and we do not want to lose that ground as we begin to make additional decisions going forward we're gonna want to protect the most vulnerable here the federal document defines the most vulnerable and they are people that we love the most in our lives I've talked a little bit about my ninety six year old grandmother he was in Arizona and and my mom she would be mad if I gave her age I've said that before but my ninety six year old grandmother had heard a very young age they are among the most vulnerable and those are the ones that we're going to want to protect continually going forward regardless of what we're able to do with our economy and we're going to implement this on a statewide or county by county basis this is that the governor's discretion of course my preference is to do things statewide we do have the option to do things county by county is as we have the the proper information so these are guidelines that normally doctor Chris talks about but these are the guidelines that have come from the federal government these are the guidelines it'll be across all fifty states and they make a difference for all individuals so I I want to touch on them my selves first this idea just practicing good hygiene washing your hands with soap and water hand sanitizer especially after touching frequently used items or surfaces avoid touching your face who would've ever thought this would be so hard every time Dr Krista said this might face has begun to edge but avoiding that can go a long way to slowing and stopping the spread of course good personal hygiene when sneezing or coughing into a tissue or inside your elbow we talked on disinfecting things and then I strongly considering using face coverings wall in public and particularly when using mass transit secondly people who feel sick should stay home anybody that grew up in America that's my age or older this is different you used to prove your work ethic by just showing up and coming to work regardless of the circumstances that's not a good idea in the age of covered nineteen it probably wasn't a good idea before that so if you're sick stay home don't go to school I'm I'm blessed with a very hard working and talented senior staff in the governor's office who have been able to stay healthy through this entire covert nineteen dilemma we did have one very valuable individual who had a persistent cough up she made the decision to go home and it was the right decision she was able to work from home thank goodness she didn't contract cove in nineteen but that's the right decision so if you're sick stay home and it will make a big difference so let's talk about where we are today when I say we I'm talking about the state of Arizona that's the focus we're talking about public health first making sure that we're protecting our citizens yeah I know what our status is so this is a a busy sliding a new one for most of you to see for the first time what you're looking at our cobit nineteen cases by day on the far right of the slide you see we had the first case of covert.

"Chan who was one of the clean elections Commissioner Tom Collins, executive director of that same organization I'd like to start with a question to you Amy about the selection of commissioners. I know that there are five commissioners and no more than two from party. No more than two from a single of county, which basically constrains this being Maricopa County dominated and your appointed by people from both parties who are in high office. I know you were appointed by and this I found this. This got to be a story in here somewhere you were because the normal assumption be the Republican leaders will appoint Republicans, the Democrats will appoint Democrats while you were a Republican appointed by Katie Hobbs. Who was then the now secretary state, but who is at the time the majority leader of the demo. Kratz in the state Senate. Is there a story in there somehow? Well, the only story is that it goes by state law as far as you know, she had to appoint somebody who would be I think Tom, and you can correct me if I was wrong, either a Republican or an independent because I believe at the time we had two Democrats already on the commission. Okay. So so she was constrained there. What if there was some there was a kind of an out of sequence of selection. It preceded Katie hubs choice of you. Right. But I mean, hopefully, I really had so much respect for her. And just because you know, registered are as I like to say just I don't know I call him ours in dis of for reference does because I'm an R, and she's the, you know, I think we have things in the similar light. You have a lot of similar values when it comes to integrity, and our publicly elected officials are, you know, campaign, finance, and obviously clean. Elections. And I think that's probably why she selected. He I hope it wasn't. I don't think it was under protest. But she appointed he as a Republican if make such of somebody broke, the sequence, it was somebody prior to Katie Hobbs in your instance, you probably know governor governor brewer pointed a democrat toward the end of her term on the commission as a lawyer in town named David Meyer. He's immediate past chairman. So that's what that set up. The that's the sequencing issue. You're staggered right now, there are the term staggered. So that when somebody makes an appointment there's only a single vacancy. Well, no, that's a great point. Because we have governor do still needs to make his appointment. Our chairman from two years ago, hit LA he you know, is has not been his replacement has not been appointed. And. Secretary Hobbs is is slated to make an appointment to so. Layers position. And I think the thinking is that I governor Ducey must appoint the person to fill the position of Germans Hitler. So so you're done to three commissioners right now or. If I. Law's written the the background on this is that if you don't get replaced, you essentially are a holdover, and you would have to formally resign say so you serve until you replacements. And so right now, we have basically, but you know, honestly, I mean from my perspective. I mean, I look at a staggering great and the and of generally five terms are great both Fisher tiddler in Commissioner Meyer started quite late. They started in the middle of term that had already because of the timing argument. So I, you know, I think the Chris stability and and experience I mean, you've now got a chairman who's very capable been on the commission for four years whose name is Mark Kimball. He's from Tucson. And then we have we have the benefit right now having to former chair persons there is a requirement as there is with the redistricting commission that it not be somebody who was a party leader. And so you have to be somewhat removed from partisan politics. You can't have a precinct committee person or elected official elected official. The general rule of you know, there's there may be other things the phone the different categories, but the general rule, Amy. Go ahead. I was just gonna ask in in your experience does the commission ten to act in a nonpartisan manner. Absolutely. I mean, you know, knowing who what the party registration is of each person it. Always all agree. But I don't view it as being along party lines at all it's more about personal experience in many cases. But I feel like more times than not very unified in how we approach things because we're just we're following the law with only the policy of maintaining our integrity in our elections in the state of Arizona as much as you can from our position on clean elections, as well, as you know, I really, you know, of course, the commissioners are the appointed, you know, members of this commission, but undertones executive director ship. I mean, our daughter education program has just become so strong. And so by Brent. And I think you seen that every Commissioner for years, regardless of party affiliation has really supported the mission of clean elections as dated by the law by the act itself. And. I would encourage anyone listening. I mean, our our meeting all streamed live online, they're also archived online. You can definitely take a look if you're an election. Geek, like, I am you might enjoy it and or come downtown in attend. I mean, it's very approachable. I think the meetings or great education in what we're doing. Of course, I have a question I've been dying to ask you, and I think you are uniquely qualified to answer this question. Probably nobody else quite has the perspective on this. Because in addition to being a Commissioner, you were formerly election strict or for the state of Arizona. The elections director is appointed. By a secretary of state who is will always probably be either a democrat or Republican elected in partisan elected who hires a state elections director. We also have this commission that from everything you've said and everything the weights it was structured to be as nonpartisan as humanly possible wouldn't make more sense for the state elections director to be part of the clean elections commission rather than be somebody who was appointed by partisan elected official. I never actually have even thought about that. I don't know, you know, our laws are structured in a way that this secretary of state is our chief elections officer for the state and. The election director is the one who kind of ministers out for the secretary now in the past like under ten Bennett who was the secretary of state who hired me to be election director and all the previous secretaries that person was even if they were registered are or d in the past. I feel like those folks were it's kind of like John McCain if I could be so bold as the hope that we could all be like that, you know, country above party stayed above party. You know, those folks were not political people, even though they were working for secretaries who were elected in part of an election. If that makes sense we've had we've had some very very good people who acted in nonpartisan way as elections director. I must say, However, I think we're lucky in that what the scenario that. I described is this isn't true in other states. I can think of Florida, for example, I think of other states where it hasn't worked out. Well, and we are we. We are dependent on that on secretaries of state who continue to appoint people who are dispositions independent just sort of just as a structure, it seems to me that we would like elect the administration of and I say this recognizing of course, that elections are really run at the county level, but but but the elections director, and and in broad sense. A secretary state have some have overall kind of I'm not quite sure how the elections are run by the counties but in race supervised or at least coordinated it by the state elections director. And I to me it just being an independent commission would there's there's a structure there. And it seems to me to be logical. I don't agree with you. I mean, I in fact when I was at the secretary of faith office. This is not something that secretary Bennett ever necessarily wanted to do. But it even occurred to us because we had a very good working relationship with clean elections at that time, which you know, under secretary Reagan wasn't always the case. And I now that we have a new secretary. I think that's changing. But at the time, I really felt like it might be worthwhile to put all campaign finance at least under the clean elections commission. And maybe even beep it up to create an ethics. The legislation, but you know, you have to have the political fortitude in the state legislature to do that. And I don't think we've ever had that this. This is why we have citizen initiatives. To get things that that most people would agree is reasonable, but would never pass muster with the partisan legislature. We'll break it at this point. We'll return in just a minute to conclude our discussion clean elections in the think-tank KTAR with back in just a minute. Listen on the radio.

Ducey: Federal laws to blame for crisis at Arizona border
"Arizona's immigration crisis. He wants the border wall. But in Arizona, congressman is promoting other ways to stem, the current border crisis KTAR Peterson Moore's live in the news center. And that AirAsia congressman is Paul gosar. He wants US intelligence to determine which groups are struggling smuggling rather Central American migrants to bust them and stem the influx that press kit. Republican also wants Mexico to adopt a policy for asylum is like Canada has adopted that way if they do not meet the requirements, they will accept them back. Mexico has refused to do that. Those are also wants Mexico to stop migrants and the US to use US MCA trade talks as leverage Sedona democratic Congressman Tom O'Halloran was planning a trip to Honduras to stop the migrant flux there live in the news center.

With Mexico typically you declare a state emergency. When there's a natural disaster. Will this is not a natural disaster. This is congressional disaster.

"Pants governor Ducey yesterday welcoming vice President Mike Pence stairs on it for a tour of the border in no Gallas. There was a recurring message yesterday. And we've been hearing this message for awhile now this crisis we're dealing with right now. It's on Congress's back to solve this. We will. Governor Ducey takes a bit more of a bipartisan tone, border security, should not be a partisan issue. I would ask congress to do its job. Whether you are a democrat or Republican, I don't think that's too much. Thank goodness. While the vice president was here yesterday told CNN that the administration is not considering bringing back family separation at the border. Of course, we all know that can change with a single tweet from the president. Right. The reason I say thank goodness is because it takes away the focus from what congress needs to be doing. And it gives them something to just get all upset about. And you know, in some cases, they should be upset about this. I just hope that somebody somewhere figures out that this really is a crisis at the border. I saw people online yesterday's, and I don't see a crisis in his people from Arizona on social media crisis. Really? It's not safe for entire families and unaccompanied children to cross the entire length of Mexico to flee the violence in Central America, by the way, when I say unaccompanied children. I mean, I I mean their parents or another relative didn't accompany them often, they are accompanied by coyotes human smugglers, those operations often run by the drug cartels. It's one of the ways that the most dangerous criminals in North America have diversified their business model, you know, they're not just providing pr-. Product to addicted Americans and carrying out kidnappings. Now, they're they're also sneaking across the border or helping I'm using my quotation marks near helping people figure out how to get to American request asylum. We need more facilities to hold entire families. And they need to be comfortable and decent facilities. We need a change in the law that allows those people to be held for longer, and we need more immigration judges. So that their cases can be heard more quickly that's slowly fair to them. And it also takes the incentive out of making that trek that dangerous trek because they won't be let go immediately with the promise to show up years later to hear what an immigration judge has to say. But if you need any more belief that this is a border crisis that is extending out into the rest of America. Listen to what's going on two and a half hours north of the border more than one hundred fifty miles.

Arizona teacher strike: Union boss warns walkout could be 'long haul'
"So if you remember how it went. Read for read said, we wanna raise the governor said, you know, what you're right. So he went to the legislature, president of the Senate speaker house and said can we get this done? And they said, you know, what we can get it done. We're gonna get them the twenty percent they've asked for over three years. We're going to do it. So the governor came back a couple of days later and said you're going to get the raise. Well, Joe Thomas who had taken over the movement by then who is the head of the unions in Arizona week as they are. And Noah carve, Ellis, the self socialist and guiding Derrick Harris was no longer here. Rebecca Garelli on these red. Fred people said, we don't believe you, Mr. governor, Mr. MRs legislators, we don't believe you. So we're going to walk out of school anyway, and they did seventy thousand people strong. And a lot of you don't know this, and I can't drive this home enough. The legislature worked on a budget that over a three year period gives teachers at twenty percent raise half of it in year one. And they were working on passing this budget until the wee hours of the morning. Do you know that leadership of red? Fred Joe Thomas, Noah, Carvalhas, Derrick Harris, all of them with their friends and in the democratic caucus in both the house and the Senate tried to kill that budget. Do you know that they want a governor Ducey gone so badly that they tried to kill the twenty percent raises for the teachers? So they could say it never happened. Like, they said it wasn't going to. And I will I will respectfully cast out the invitation one more time Joe Thomas. Derrick Harris has gone Joe Thomas miss corral. Noah Corvallis, any of the leaders of Red Front, even the new one J Budo any of you out there if I'm lying about this. Please call me out send me an Email. I will read your E mail verbatim on the air. You tried to kill the budget. You tried to stop the raises from going through to the wee hours of the morning. And when the Republicans passed it anyway, Joe Thomas ran to a podium and congratulated the teachers in attendance saying that it wasn't the dirtbag legislature or the dirtbag governor that got it done. It was the teachers in attendance that got this done. Did he tell those teachers in attendance that he was working behind the scenes to try to kill the budget? Did they do that? They didn't they didn't. Well, one of their five demands was no new tax cuts. Now, why in the world at teacher organization as long as they're getting the increases they asked for give a damn about tax cuts shows, you why this political I'm bringing all of this up because tomorrow is the day. Day. Tomorrow is debate in the legislature on a couple of tax cut measures. And they have been red. Fred has been imploring teachers to leave school. Take the day off sign up to speak in the legislative sessions in the committees. So that their two minutes can be heard and they can show their protest. Now, how many teachers are going to do this? I don't know. But if I were you, and I had a student or a grand son or daughter in the valley schools. I would be asking the administration my kid's classrooms going to double in size because teachers are taking the day off. Are you calling in a a more than usual amount of substitute teachers because teachers are taking the day off? If they can question you if they can come after you and ask you why you're taking your child out of school to excuse an absence. You certainly can do it for a teacher. Why are you taking the day off? Well, that's your business. Well, I tried saying that about my students when I was taking my student out of school. And I said, it's none of your business. Why I'm taking my kid out? And you made me explainer was an unexcused absence. I'm not trying to set up a war between teachers, and parents, I'm saying that the teachers and parents should be working together and red Fred claims, they're all about the students. Well, if you're walking out of school to go to a committee hearing in the legislature, you're ignoring the children. Now, your argument is going to be long term. It's better for the children. Well, that's what you have lobbyists for you pay. Joe you pay Joe a lot of money. He makes a lot of money to lobby on your behalf. Let him go to the legislature and state your case, you're gonna take schooltime off really. And how about May Day. Why don't some of you start asking your kids what they know about red? Fred what their teachers are saying about red. Fred, why don't you start asking in your school if the principal and the administration is going to give excused absences to teachers on may first or May Day to walk out in. Solidarity with teachers across the country. Maybe if I were you I'd try to find that out. Contractually? They're not allowed to do that. If they do they are in violation of the verbiage of their contract and could lose their jobs. I am in favour of teacher raises fair teacher compensation. I admire the job that teachers do across the board. Even if you're in support of red, Fred if you're a good teacher. Thank you for the great job you do. But if you're walking off the job for political reasons, you are ignoring the very students you claim to be fighting for and we haven't even gotten into and probably don't have time to get into the strong arm bully tactics behind the scenes because tomorrow is Wednesday. Tomorrow's the day that all teachers are supposed to wear red. And if you're one of the teachers that dare not wear red man, they write your name down. You're not a team player. You're not with us.

Hacienda HealthCare closing unit where woman was raped and gave birth
"Hacienda healthcare. We've been talking about this ever since a woman back in December gave birth to a little boy. The unfortunate part is that woman was sexually assaulted. She was incapacitated. She's been incapacitated. The majority of her life. So we've been talking about this place for a number of weeks now. Well, we just found out earlier today, the hacienda healthcare board of directors. They are going to shut down a partial bit of that healthcare facility. The they determined that they can operate continue to operate the intermediate care facility for the intellectually disabled, which is where this woman was being cared for. They have closed the unit where the incapacitated woman was raped. Well, it's about time. I mean. Yeah, you close it down and. I think we're seeing is this place is starting to get shut down piece by piece, and yeah, it should happen. It should happen. Not only because an incapacitated woman was raped. They're not only because she gave birth. They're not only because nobody knew she was pregnant until she was delivering. Yeah. This comes from the top up, the CEO is a total scum. You haven't heard a peep from that guy. Because he knows what happened. He knows taking money fraud. Sexual harassment charges against him. The guy is a disgusting human being and as soon as all this stuff happened. He bailed. So what happens no-one's running the place? I mean, really there's no CEO's. Nobody running the place you got to close it down. And I know it's easier said than done you're gonna have to find a place to bring some of these patients to that's not the easiest thing. But governor Ducey has started to I think close this place down. He's looking for the attorney general what what charges are we gonna file against hacienda? He's he he made an executive order the other day that said, hey, if you're in this type of business in healthcare, and all that we're going to put you through classes every year just real quick. I just want to make sure everybody understands this is not by Doug ducey's order. It is not this is the board of directors. Right order that they cannot run this particular side of the facility, but that doesn't mean this is over allegations still continues the investigation will probably uncover. I'll. A lot of stuff that we didn't know before this hoc- into healthcare. This story is not over by a long shot, and they still have another deadline to meet tomorrow. Yeah. I mean, there are unable to get anybody to run the hospital, and they say they can't afford to either. And that's bull because they paid. You know, how many hundreds of thousands of pages of the CEO he paid CEO Timmons six hundred grand. Yeah. It would cost a private company to come in less than five hundred grand you, and they said, well, we don't have that kind of wait a minute. You were just paying this guy one hundred grand anymore. There's an open a salary there. So sixty the sixty bed intermediate care facility that part of hacienda healthcare where the patient was raped and recently gave birth that part of it is getting shut down. And I gotta tell you. Now. It's about the care for those patients. They have to find good care because I don't know if they were getting good care over there. And I say this all the time there are plenty of nurses, and doctors and staff that work at hacienda, upstanding citizens. They're good people. You know, they're they're caring for people who can't care for themselves and most I'm sure have done a great job. But one low-life was able to do what he did. And. Thank goodness. He's in jail. He ain't going anywhere. And he probably won't go anywhere for a while. But there were some good people at hacienda. So are people going to start losing their job? Yes. Is that is? But that's where you got to go with this place. You've gotta shut it down. And maybe you just shut it down in parts. So you've got this part of the hospital. That's going to get shut down. All right. Let's take care of those patients and put them in a place that's going to be better than this. And then let's work on the next part of the hospital. And then we'll find a place for for those people. And then let's do this to the next part of. I think he got I think you've got to gradually dismantle hacienda healthcare. There are certain things or certain. There are certain problems that arise that you just can't recover from. I don't know how you recover from something like this with which is such an unbelievable story. Such terrible story. Such a heartbreaking story. I I don't know how anybody in good faith, unless you want to change the name and try to stay in business. But you've gotta come. You've gotta come before the governor. You gotta come before the state you've got to deal with an investigation. You've gotta deal with a deadline. I wonder if this is just the beginning of the end, and they're just going to try to stop this train. But you can't do it. It's not like a convenience store or restaurant where you just shut the doors. You lock it. And nobody can can be served. You have people here that are dependent. And I mean, literally and figuratively dependent on the staff in this facility. You can't just shut it down. So they are moving now to transport and and transition these people into other facilities, but that's not easy either. Now is that something you said really made me think you can't recover from this. Okay. What exactly does that mean? Instead of. It just being like a blanket statement that I'm making he can't recover. What does that mean? Well, put it this way. Do you think they're going to get new patients in? Do you think there's a family out there that if a tragedy happens to their child or a loved one, and they need this type of help? And they say, well, let's go to hacienda healthcare. I don't think. So I don't think so no way. No way, there's worries that are just become so big, and it becomes associated with such a bad deal that Hocine into healthcare will probably be one of them in my estimation. I I'm not saying that it will. I'm just saying it'll be one of those stories that you remember because it is just so unbelievable. How women was sexually assaulted and gave birth to a child and no one knew about. I mean, this is how big we live here in the valley in Arizona, right. If our job is to sift through the news every day, there are places like this across the country that have battened down the hatches because of this story thinking to do we have something like this going on? That's how big of a ripple effect. It has gone across the country that other institutions other healthcare facilities will many new are saying we need to make sure this doesn't happen

You're just saying. I thought I saw. We've got a lot to go through in a minute. We're going to get to Trump's Oval Office speech. But why don't we just start with something? That is just a brutal story, and it's the hacienda healthcare story here. There's a woman in a vegetative state and on December twenty ninth she gave birth to a child she's been in in that state for over ten years and displaces not run by the government here in Arizona, but they do receive state and federal funding governor should and how should governor Doug Ducey handled? This should he get involved with this horror that happened at hacienda healthcare? Absolutely. But the bottom line is is that everyone there is a very very fragile vulnerable. Thunderbolt state, and what has happened is absolutely horrible and unacceptable, and I wonder who else has been a socred. Under their watch. I am very upset about that. That is just unbelievable. And I believe that the governor said immediately has an already done it. It starts at investigation, and it has to be at sixty miles an hour. We cannot allow that behavior. Take place in any facility. But particularly where these people are defense. Absolutely senseless. And not to even know that she was pregnant do they not do physical checks on these people? I know and being a former governor could governor Ducey to shut this place down. If he does he have the power to do something like that. I would think I would I would assume that you could go to and pull their their accreditation. Their licenses. You know? But then your faith, of course, with the problem of where where do you move these fragile people because they serve a very fat fragile population. I mean, I've been there a nice facility. But you know, what what who knows what goes on at night. Governor. It's interesting that you bring up the fact that, you know, the governor should step in we we all have an emotional reaction to this. And as a former governor how much of your emotional reaction had to be tempered with like the reality of well, if you're gonna shut this place down where do the people go? I mean, who do you talk to who advise you on a serious matter like this when we are so emotional, we do want answers. But at the same time, there are other people there that need to be taken care of like where do you go? And who do you talk to about this stuff? Well, you certainly talk to the apartment of health services. You talked to the AG you talk your policy people, you reach out to your other health care provider in you know, I mean, you move them out moving somewhere where they can get temporary carriage elephant facility that can take the group of people that are that are living there.

Texting and driving now banned Phoenix. You can't do it surprise has its own rule. Does Arizona need a statewide ban on texting and driving. I think so I think so I was just driving right now. And this guy was texting and driving was in front of me, and he was absolutely unaware of anything that was going around. And now, I don't know how the police officers are going to be able to monitor all these people because he's kids and people and grown-ups sassy, they hold the phone way down low, you know, and they knew double ended, and it's just a mess. This technology is causing chaos and death on our on our streets. Nowhere is safe. No one is safe even when you walk around, and I noticed this day, even when you walk around like a sidewalk people have their nose in their phone. I almost got knocked. And they run right into you exactly which which I can handle. But what I can't handle is a cop pulls over someone on the side of the road is out of his car. And then you've got some guy who say who was texting and driving. And he goes to lanes over and kills the police officer. Unbelievable. I mean, it is just a horrendous. Oh, no. This show is not a good show start back. Thank you. Thank you. It really isn't governor. No, it's true. I mean, we have a lot of bad news in Arizona right now. Unfortunately, governor. Rendez governor you've been in politics along time, why has an era Zona gotten a texting and driving? A don't text and drive band rolling three. Why has the state been so lax or so behind the curve on this? Do you think I think the mindset of a lot of elected officials, particularly of the Republican party? They wanna keep government out of our lives. You know, it's it's sort of like, we want do be responsible. Well, we as elected officials, and those that are elected officials have to take on that responsibility thing the responsibility of safety for the population and the two don't mess. Really? Well, but I think that at this point in time, I think you see the cities if progress they've taken the lead on the city, but I have told when I was governor I will tell you that I've anybody who would call me or they were texting me. And I had the idea that they were in the car. I would ask them I made them take on. Oh. And this is the gods. That they would not x and ride and I gave him a little band to put around their finger. They're ex finger to remind them not when you drive. It's like a rubber band. Circulation. What did it do? It was a reminder. It was you know, right colored.

Hey, let's get to the president's speech last night oval Ave to the nation. It's about immigration. It's about the wall. Here's my quick take governor, I didn't get much new from it. And I really think the only news worthy thing was that. It was his first Oval Office speech. I didn't get much. Well, I mean, he was very concise and he made its case. And I thought it was very well scripted for him, and he delivered it very competent and presidential. Your bottom line is is that lasts. At least we have a president as fighting for our citizens and protecting our country. So I gave him my huge apply was huge applause new though, I think that was a message not only for those believers in the barrier. But today. Those that are the naysayers that want to play politics with that. I cannot imagine anybody understanding the situation. Not understanding that you don't have a country. If you don't have a border and border needs to be secure. We need to conflict is not a free for all his taken place over and over and the federal government sued me, I said them back. The court said what the federal I had no business in. This is the federal government to secure our borders and deal with immigration while it congress doing your job and Democrats get off your butts. And do what you're elected to do a take those rose colored glasses off your eyes living reality governor brewer, I know we've got a problem with the border on totally with you. We needed to secure it better a wall. It might work. I'm not totally against the wall. I think it cost too much money. Here's the thing though. Governor I almost feel like Trump likes fighting over the wall. And would rather fight about the wall and actually build it. No, I don't think that I don't I've had conversations with him, and he realizes strongly how damaging not having control of our borders. Are the Democrats gets used to the fact that for thirty years and the last ten years is increasingly gotten work that we're dealing with the drugs decrying, the human suffering, the drop houses, extortion, the sex trafficking, just goes on and on and on we've got to secure our border, and they wanna play politics, and then they complain with the seekers and a lot of those families that are coming across and the kids get separated, and they don't find the money for facilities to house these people. So then they get distributed out amongst churches and other goodwill organizations. We have finally got a president. This guy's hands on it. And he's gonna solve the problem. The Democrats come visit table and negotiate. And I think they will. I don't think the president's gonna blink.

I know you like the address, but do you think it was enough to convince the American people because I think the American people are just tired of the bickering and the fighting. They're going to tune it out. Well, no, I think his message was very great. Claire did he was willing to to work with the Democrats and a good faith? We open government and secure the border, but they need to come to the table. And the president has put four very common sense solutions to end this crisis. I think that he demonstrated how the democrat that they have been putting their own political. Well, being of the American citizens. All right. And we still haven't done that. But hopefully that we will very soon, and maybe the president can get it done. All right there. She has former Arizona governor.
