As a former member of the law enforcement community / bomb dog handler, I take issues against hypocritical politicians such as (R) John Kavanagh who voted against salary increases for law enforcement, while doubling his taxpayer-funded living allowance via Arizona's Senate Bill 1217 dated April 15, 2014.
As a key swing Independent voter of Arizona, our independent voter group is giving John Kavanagh two thumbs down. Kavanagh is a career politician who has been in politics for 8 years too long. He is also an extremist who doesn't believe in bipartisanship that addresses and takes on tough issues. Kavanagh is an extremist. Moderates and centrist independent voters are tired of extremism in our State of Arizona and we are signaling to fellow independent voters to vote "anyone but Kavanagh."
According to a mailer sent to me, John Kavanagh even co-sponsored legislation ending term limits for legislators via HCR 2010, 2007, and in fact voted against adjusting [his own] politician's retirement benefits funded by taxpayers during our economic crisis via HB 2062 dated March 27, 2008.
It's time for Kavanagh to go.
