AZGOP party officers will no longer be able to ignore the bylaws with impunity, if the New Proposed AZGOP Bylaws are passed at the Mandatory Meeting. Simply stated, these new bylaws restore control of the party to the members of the state committee, as originally intended, and prevent leadership from becoming lawless.
Out with the Old, In with the Tried and True Russell Sias, Chairman of La Paz County, and a co-author of the new revamped bylaws, is slated to address a meeting of the Grassroots Tea Party on Wednesday, December 27th at 6:30pm, at the Denny's at 9030 N Black Canyon Highway in Phoenix, AZ.. He will present and discuss some of the significant and dramatic bylaws changes that he says will go far toward bringing the Arizona Republican Party back to its roots.
The "Official" Bylaws Committee was in Breech of Current Bylaws... FROM DAY ONE! Sias states that the “official” AZGOP bylaws committee, named by the current chairman earlier this year, was "in breech of current bylaws from the moment it was formed." Thus, its work product is "not eligible for a vote at the Mandatory Meeting, according to the current bylaws." Only the fully revamped New Proposed AZGOP Bylaws, which were submitted to the Secretary, as stipulated in the current bylaws, are eligible to be voted on by the state committee, which holds its annual meeting January 27, 2018. Throughout this year, Sias raised considerable awareness on problems with the bylaws, by posting about bylaws issues on the Republican Briefs online newsletter, while the revamp was taking place.
