Jim O’Connor, AZRA President
Jim is currently a candidate for the Corporation Commission. He is a strong Conservative, very knowledgeable in all aspects of what is needed and the former Chair of Legislative District 23.
Jim’s been active in Republican politics for the past 10 years; served two-year terms as a Member at Large for CD 5 and CD 6; was elected Chairman of LD 23 Nov 2014, and serves on the Executive Guidance Council of the Maricopa County Republican Committee.
Jim spearheaded the effort to renounce the National Popular Vote Compact legislation, which moved through the Arizona State House. He built a team to educate legislators and PCs statewide about the failings of this foolish idea. The compact thankfully didn’t pass. Had it passed, it would have subverted the will of the people of Arizona, by mandating that electoral votes go to the winner of the national popular vote, even if it differs from the actual Arizona result. It has the possibility of rearing its ugly head again. You can believe Jim is totally against and will work hard against it.
The most salient example of O’Connor’s effectiveness in building the party and motivating volunteers was his success in working with his district’s Precinct Captains and Area Directors to appoint 135 new Precinct Committeemen in LD 23.
Jim was voted in and is currently State Director of AzRa.
Just as a recap of Jim’s qualifications
– extremely active & committed to AZGOP political action since 2006.
– taken & completed all 5 levels of training from the Center for Self Governance.
– is an opponent of the NPVC (National Popular Vote Compact).
– Jim is described by many as a ‘Citizen Patriot’ because of his belief in the standards around which we must unite are both the Founding Documents and 2016 Republican Party Platform
– Jim has a solid business background. He retired as a successful investment advisor in 2000 selling his practice to a major company.
We need a Strong Conservative on the Corporation Commission and I believe his credentials speak for themselves as being someone who will defend the Constitutional rights in providing what is needed on the Corporation Commission.
