Secretary of State Debate Forum
Did you miss the March 15th meeting of the Pinal County Republican Committee and Secretary of State Debate Forum? We did create a video of the Debate Forum. When you miss these events you loose the opportunity to take part, meet the candidates and people in your party.
The Arizona Department of State was created by the Arizona Constitution and is held by a publicly elected Secretary of State. This official serves as acting Governor in the elected Governor’s absence as well as succeeds when the office of Governor becomes vacant. When the Secretary of State becomes the Governor they appoint a new Secretary of State to take their place.
There are five separate divisions of the Secretary of State’s office:
Main Office Administration
Arizona State Library
Archives and Public Records
Republican Candidates for the Debate Forum were Wil Cardon, Justin Pierce, and Michele Reagan. This forum was moderated by District 3 Pinal County Supervisor Steve Miller. The candidates answered questions submitted by the audience. The questions presented were:
Why do you want to be Secretary of State?
What is your Opinion of Common Core (National Education)?
If you were Governor how would you have responded to SB1062?
What is your position on Clean Elections?
In what way have you prepared to become Governor?
