John Bolton PAC Endorses AZ Congressional Candidate In Must-win Seat

Theo nguồn tin trên mạng của John Bolton PAC John Bolton PAC Endorses AZ Congressional Candidate In Must-win Seat Retired Air Force Colonel Martha McSally receives the Ambassador’s endorsement and the maximum donation allowable from John Bolton PAC. WASHINGTON, May 22, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Ambassador John Bolton endorses Martha McSally and her campaign will receive the first contribution from John Bolton PAC. Seeking to endorse and donate to candidates for office who believe in strong economic and national security, McSally is a candidate for Arizona’s must-win 2nd Congressional District and will host a roundtable discussion with Ambassador Bolton on Thursday, May 22nd in Phoenix, Arizona. “Martha McSally is a proven leader in international security. Not only is she the first female fighter pilot in U.S. history, she also is the first U.S. woman to command a combat aviation unit and has led military missions from Africa to the Middle East,” said Ambassador John Bolton. “Arizona needs a committed conservative leader like Martha in Congress who believes protecting our freedoms at home means securing America’s interests abroad.” With a combined total of over $3M raised through the PAC and Super PAC over the past eight months including contributions from supporters in all 50 states, Ambassador Bolton is targeting to support up to 35 pro-national security candidates running for the House and Senate this year. “I am honored to have the support and endorsement of Ambassador Bolton, a great American who has advocated for our freedom against enemies worldwide,” said Colonel (ret.) Martha McSally. “I am grateful for his trust in me to bring the necessary experience and leadership to Washington D.C. to start solving the complex problems that face our nation. I will continue to serve and protect with strong national defense, foreign policy and a robust economy.” These are John Bolton PAC’s first contributions, therefore the donation is $2,600 for both the primary and general elections, and followed by another $4,800 once four other candidates receive contributions from the PAC, thus satisfying the Federal election law requirement. About John Bolton PAC (www.boltonpac.com): The John Bolton PAC was founded by former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John R. Bolton to raise the importance of American national security in federal elections. The PAC will seek out and support candidates for nomination and for election to federal offices who are committed to restoring strong American economic and national security and who also promote foreign and defense policies that secure America’s interests in a challenging world.

The items will be distributed to the homeless by experienced homeless outreach teams. “Living on the streets can be a life-threatening situation, especially when temperatures move into the triple digits,” said Councilwoman Kate Gallego, chairwoman of the City Council Neighborhoods, Housing & Development Subcommittee. “I encourage everyone to give whatever they can to make this year’s program a success – giving just a few bottles of water can literally save a life.” Residents can bring their tax-deductible donations to any of the city’s three family services centers from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday: Travis L.

Each summer the city of Phoenix works as part of the Heat Relief Network in cooperation with other government agencies, corporations, nonprofit and faith-based organizations to bring heat relief to individuals, families, seniors and the disabled who are homeless and at high risk as temperatures begin to reach over 100 degrees. The city’s Human Services Department is educating seniors at its 15 senior centers about the dangers of heat exposure, how to recognize heat stroke, heat exhaustion and heat cramps. The department also makes sure that caseworkers who come in contact with the elderly are advising seniors about the effects of heat and how to protect themselves during the summer. Information about the Heat Relief Network and Summer Respite program, as well as a list of tips on how to stay safe and hydrated during the summer heat, is available at phoenix.gov/humanservices.

AARP Phoenix Experience Corps Looking for Volunteer Tutors

Theo nguồn tin trên mạng của phoenix.gov May 15, 2015 AARP Experience Corps and AARP Arizona staff joined the City of Phoenix and several school superintendents to launch a highly effective tutoring program to improve reading skills for Phoenix elementary school students. The AARP Experience Corps program utilizes highly trained volunteer tutors 50 and older to help children become great readers by the time they finish third grade. During the 2012-2013 school year, 50 percent of Experience Corps students improved one or more levels in reading and literacy performance over the course of a year. Most teachers reported a strong or moderate impact on reading and literacy performance and on moving students toward reading at grade level. Mayor Stanton was instrumental in securing the program for Phoenix schools as part of Read On Phoenix – Stanton’s effort to get local students reading at grade level by third grade. Phoenix is one of many cities that are committed to addressing early literacy in their community. Read On Phoenix is part of the statewide effort of Read on Arizona, a partnership of agencies, philanthropic organizations and community stakeholders committed to creating an effective continuum of services to improve language and literacy outcomes for Arizona’s children. During the 2014-2015 school year, AARP Experience Corps will expand to five Phoenix elementary school districts: Wilson, Fowler, Tolleson, Phoenix and Riverside. If you want to learn more about the program, please fill out an application at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ECPHX.
