Andy Biggs Made Talonya Adams a Victim – Not Katie Hobbs

Letter to Talonya Adams. Dear Ms. Adams, You were done an injustice. The courts have established that your pay was sexually discriminatory and you were wrongly terminated, and the jury has done what they could to rectify that wrong. But you are making an error: Katie Hobbs did not discriminate against you, and is not the cause of the injustice that was done to you. Secretary Hobbs took responsibility for her part in firing you – for cause – but she had no intent to retaliate against you. The court found there was a lack of sufficient procedure in place to document and escalate the causes [...]

Andy Biggs Made Talonya Adams a Victim – Not Katie Hobbs

Letter to Talonya Adams, Dear Ms. Adams, You were done an injustice. The courts have established that your pay was sexually discriminatory and you were wrongly terminated, and the jury has done what they could to rectify that wrong. Talonya Adams is an African American attorney who was fired for cause from her job as a policy adviser for the state Senate in 2015. Today she is falsely accusing Secretary of State Katie Katie Hobbs of sex discrimination in the firing, even though Secretary Hobbs did not set her pay, nor her conditions of employment, nor the procedures to hire [...]

Get a Look at Arizona’s Future Governor

The East Valley Partnership recently held a forum for the candidates from both parties for Arizona's Governorship in 2022. Of those aspiring to the Republican nomination, Matt Salmon, Steve Gaynor, Kimberly Yee, and Karrin Taylor Robson were in attendance. Kari Lake claimed a scheduling conflict and did not appear. Unfortunate, as I was keen to see her fatuously call for Hobbs' arrest to her face. All of the announced candidates for the Democratic nomination were present, including Katie Hobbs, Aaron Lieberman, and Marco Lopez, Jr. I have to admit that there were very few surprises in the presentations and answers [...]

Vice President Joe Biden on the Latest Unemployment Numbers

Amid the deep anguish and the activism we are seeing across the country as Americans speak out about the violence of systemic racism, this morning brought a reminder of the deep economic hurt being inflicted on our country by this pandemic. More than 42 million Americans have now filed for unemployment in the last three months, and, as with so many burdens in our society, Black and Latino communities are being hit hardest. Last month, 11 percent of white adults report having been laid off or furloughed — a devastating figure in its own right — and the pain is [...]
