Casa Grande Valley Like a Blanket VOLUME TWO REPUBLICAN PARTY PLATFORM QHm AJMBMfafc- M IBM JOHN C. PHILLIPS For Governor of Arizona The text of the platform of the Republican party for 1930. adopted unanimously by the executive com mittee of the state central commit tee of the party follows: , We of the Republican party of the state of Arizona as sembled as jfrovided by law, do hereby adopt the following prin ciples and platform of the party for the coming election: National Administration We commend the national admin istration for its accomplishments within the year and a half of its existence and advancing the cause of peace throughout the world; in reducing taxation by eliminating j waste, unnecessary expenditures and by a scientific and efficient management of our finances; id protecting agriculture against ruin ous foreign competition, and in bringing to the cause of farm re lief a wise and statesmanlike leader ship; in taking prompt and efficient measures to minimize the effects of the collapse of the stock mar ket and world-wide depression by bringing about a co-flperative effort on the part of private employers of labor to reduce unemployment and by urging on the part of the fed eral government, the several states, cities and municipalities and public utilities an enlarged and immedi ate program of building and other constructive work; in pushing the work of internal development by improving our waterways for trade and commerce; in its efforts to re duce crime and to secure a better enforcement of our criminal laws and at the same time to promote prison reform wherever needed; in bringing about improvements in the method of caring for our disabled soldiers; in its many efforts to bet ter the financial and social condi- tions of our people; and finally, we commend it for its adherance to the underlying principles of the Repub lican party —the securing of justice and of well being for the people of eve-v class and section throughout our country.- State Administration We commend the administration of Gov. John C. Phillips. We com mend him for his sincere and suc cessful efforts to reduce taxation. He has insisted upon the utmost economy in expenditures in every department of the state, and that these expenditures be kept strictly within legislative appropriations; with the result that a surplus htqs been shown at the end of each fis cal year of his administration. This result is in marked contrast with the management of our state fin ances under the administration of ex-Governor Hunt, during which, taxes constantly mounted, appro priations were exceeded, resulting in annual deficits. Governor Phil lips his not only advocated econ omy. but has practiced as'shown by the fact that out of the annual appropriation for his office, he has turned back into the treasury a large balance, while ex-Governor Hunt during his last term of office left, out of a similar appropriation the meager sum of SI.OO. Economy in Expenditures While a rigid examination and ac counting of the expenditures made by the various boards and commis sions and state officers have long been needed, ex-Governor Hunt has (IktoUdo^stecfi^ alw-ays opposed and during his last term of office vetoed, and thereby killed, a bill creating an office for the purpose of curbing excessive I expenditures, while a similar bill ! passed by the last legislature pr> ! viding for such inspection and ac- I counting was promptly approved by Governor Phillips, so that a large ; measure of protection and security I has been given and is being given 1 to the taxpayers by the work of the legislative examiner under said act. Colorado River The Swing-Johnson bill was passed by the house of representa tives May 25. 1928, and passed by the senate December 13, 1928. This act was the result of Hunt’s political juggling of the Colorado river question tof several years, and his known position “that we do not need an agreement,’ and his re fusal to meet the question on a con structive basis. Governor Phillips took office January 8, 1929, and was confronted with the task of defending the in terests and rights of the state of Arizona, which this act, passed while Hunt was governor, would take from us. In handling this problem. Gover nor Phillips has earned and won the approval of the people of Arizona, He approached the problem from the standpoint of a statesman, not of a politician. Under his able lead ership, this complicated and para mount matter was lifted above the plane of party politics where it had rested so long, and put in charge of a commission of able and ex perienced bi-partisan members w-ho have represented and served Ari zona with wisdom, firmness and dignity. We heartily commend Governor Phillips and our Colorado River Commission for their splendid de fense of Arizona’s vast rights and interests in the Colorado river, and for their rigid and unprecedented economy in handling the state money appropriated by the legisla ture for that purpose. Arizona is entering upon a new stage of her prolonged controversy, She will shortly present her case to the supreme court of the United States, and in the course of the fight thus begun will need, and must have, the moral and material support of her citizens. To the suc cessful prosecution of that fight, the Republican party of Arizona pledges Its continued and unwaver ing support. Taxation House Bill 127 was overwhelm ingly passed by a Democratic state legislature, was administered by a Democratic tax commission and the blame for its failure fixed by the state supreme court when it held that the administration by the state tax commission was incomplete and not according to the intent of the law. Equality of taxation is the finan cial foundation of our state govern ment and we favor the amendment of House Bill 127 in such away as to insure protection against unjust taxation not only as between neigh bor and neighbor, but between com (Continued on third page) CRAMP CO.
