Nowakowski fires up Adios Arpaio's teen volunteers at the state Capitol

More than 100 members of Adios Arpaio, the union-funded movement of Latino high-school students looking to drive Sheriff Joe Arpaio from power, rallied on the lawn of the state House in Phoenix on Thursday afternoon to announce that they're closing in on surpassing their goal of registering 30,000 new county voters.

So far, Adios Arpaio has registered 27,810 individuals, nearly every one of them ready to cast a ballot against Arpaio. The group, which is a combination of the efforts of Campaign For Arizona's Future and Promise Arizona in Action, has until midnight on Tuesday, October 9, to submit registration forms.

With the total number of voters registered by the teens hanging behind them, Phoenix City Councilmen Michael Nowakowski and Danny Valenzuela praised the teens' efforts and urged them to fight on.

Nowakowski likened the work of Adios Arpaio to that of a massive, state-wide voter registration campaign led by human rights activist Cesar Chavez in the 1970s. That drive was part of an effort to recall infamous, anti-Latino Arizona Governor "One-Eyed Jack" Williams.

Though the recall of Williams was unsuccessful, mainly due to the political shenanigans of his allies, more than 150,000 new voters were added to the rolls. And as a result, in 1974, Arizona's first and only Mexican-American Governor was elected, Raul Castro.

"This reminds me of back in the '70s when Cesar Chavez came to Arizona, and said ya basta, enough is enough of all the abuses that are going on in the fields," Nowakowski said in a spirited address that got the teens pumped up.

"The farmworkers didn't even have a place to go to the restroom...to drink water...they didn't get paid a decent salary," he added.

"It was a movement that was created here in Arizona, a movement that got young people engaged to go out there and register all kinds of individuals. And today here in the city of Phoenix, we have the same type of movement, a movement of young people."

Nowakowski observed that Chavez, "passed away 20 years ago," but that he lives on in the teenagers at the rally.

"You asked who Cesar Chavez is," Nowakowski stated, turning to a girl next to him. "What's your name?"

"Cecilia," she answered.

"Cecilia is Cesar Chavez," said Nowakowski.

He did the same with another girl named Rosa.

"Rosa is Cesar Chavez," declared the councilman. "All of these young people are Cesar Chavez today."

 Yeah,  its not like their being manipulated by others or convinced that its in their best interest to work against a duly elected official that enforces the law based on the desire of the majority of the people of Maricopa county.  Maybe things are changing, maybe we'll have a culture just like the one their parents came from. You know, like Mexico, a country where the people are educated and not easily manipulated, where they a deep and profound respect for the law and law enforcement officials; a country that doesn't pawn its problems off on its neighbors, where corruption by government officials is unknown and everybody pays their fair share of taxes to keep the system running evenly.  Yeah... I agree, these kids are something to be proud of.  I just like you don't want Sheriff Joe to be re-elected.   After-all, he also made my Papi wear pink underwear.........

these kids are something to be damn proud of. whether you support Penzone, Stauffer or Arpaio, you have to respect and admire these kids. they are unhappy with their elected officials, and instead of just complaining.....they went out and took action. they didnt do a sit in or protest, they got voters. they spent their time to educate people, to help people register or just to get people to want to do something about it. how many people a month do you discuss politics with and how long do you spend doing it? i am willing to bet  you would have to multiply that number by at  the very least 500 to get the number these kids have dealt with (maybe even 1000, because not every person they talked to registered or could register). this papers blogs is full of people who are unhappy and want a change of some sort, but how many are putting in the time and effort these kids have? i am not gonna lie, i want change and i am pissed off and tired of how things are run, but i havent gone out and set an example like these kids have, i really dont even have an excuse. as much as i want Arpaio out, i hope it happens more so these kids can see they can make a difference and that hard work pays off. (i also want it for all the victims of Arpaio's ways, or those who have suffered because of his management). so whether you agree with these kids candidate or not, you have to respect what they have accomplished. (dont forget, the only thing they are really pushing, is, no more Arpaio. they arent promoting Penzone or Stauffer specifically, rather they are promoting no more arpaio)

 @ElephantintheRoom and im sure a majority of the people want uninvestigated sex crimes, deaths of people in the jails (before their day in court to prove their innocence or guilt) , the abuse and murder of american veterans who needed help, mismanagement of millions of dollars and lawsuits also in the miilions. yeah, why want better. hate to tell you this,  but its getting worse than the mexican government. joe wont investigate sex crimes in el mirage, but will stick 2  experienced officers on one case for 7 years, just because her daddy was politically connected. joe is renting and selling justice, he isnt serving it

 @danzigsdaddy  @ElephantintheRoom Yeah, you got some good points.  735 or was it 9000 or was it 733337 un-investigated sex crimes. All based on facts without any exaggeration.  And no other jail in the United States has bad people in it that kill other people or Prison guards who abuse or kill inmates or have had innocent people die in custody.  After-all, we citizens expect things to be perfectly run,  Just like how our Federal government runs it enforcement of illegal gun sales and arms trafficking.  And besides, Joe Arpaio is without a doubt running the MCSO worse than how the Mexican Government runs their law enforcement ops. But, hey don't worry, the sun will come out tomorrow,  Obama will get re-elected and Maricopa county will elect a real lawman who will make sure everything runs perfectly in a border state next to a law-abiding peaceful neighbor.  Just do me a favor, if your wrong and your thinking and actions end up turning AZ into a shit-hole like California, please don't pick up and move to Oklahoma and start telling them how to live.

 @narizona The new ad features the 432 sex crimes the MCSO shurf intentionally chose not to investigate (along with the verse "Show me the way to the next little girl" from the Doors "Alabama Song (Whiskey Bar).

 

Then a recount of all the wasted tax money on lawsuits and frivolous misspending (along with a sample from the O'Jays "For the Love of Money).

 

Then it moves on to a shot of Tent City, where most of Joe's inmates have died (along with the line "No one here gets out alive" from "Five to One" by the Doors)

 

Then a portrait of the Old Fool himself (along with the line "I'll never look into your eyes...again" from "The End" by the Doors.)

 

Finally a portrait of Penzone (along with "Gonna win yeah we're taking over Come on!" from the Doors "Five to One")

 

Keep in mind I have never made a commercial before nor have I sampled 4 songs before. So I hope the people like it.

 @danzigsdaddy  @goGayGreenHornet I'm still voting for Obama. Unless you want another costly war? What is celestial tax evader--Mitten's "plan" btw? $7 trillion spending on the U.S. military and the grave possibility of going to war with Iran and Syria? Damn son, I hope you got your head pulled out from where it doesn't shine. 8 years of peace and prosperity during the Clinton era. War waged during the Bush era. Inheriting Bush's war under Obama and maybe just maybe another war with Iran and Syria (and Russia?) under Romney?

Woefatcat, you definitely need to move to California.  You can smoke all of the pot you want to and cavort with all of the tolerant 'browns' you care to.  Seriously, just go to east la and let them know how you feel about how righteous they are for fighting for their rights.  I am absolutely positive they will welcome you to their homes with open arms and tolerance.    I have to disagree with you though,  Mexifornia is definitely a bigger shithole than Florida.

 @goGayGreenHornet  If you haven't noticed Arizona became the most famous "shithole" a long time ago. I think they passed Florida back in 2001. Or was it 2002? It doesn't matter it's still a shithole. I find it funny how people can let their hatred of the "brown" blind them to the Sherf's bad deeds. When in reality the Sherf does way way more damage to the State then any amount of brown people could.

 @goGayGreenHornet  so if he runs it like shit, we just have to accept it? obama ran us into the dirt and we are getting rid of him, so why should we keep arpaio who is doing the same thing in a smaller area? we are voting in new people to take care of the problems brought about by the last cabinet, so why not do it on a local scale too?

 @Flyer9753  Don't ask him to provide evidence of his yarns.  It makes him look bad.  Just pat him on the head and tell him he's doing a terrific job not getting food on his shirt.

 @MaskedMagician1967 Rachel doesn't work for arpaio.  a bit of a conundrum for those who have any integrity.  

 

I have never not been employed.  I don't know what it's like to live with mom and dad as an adult.  I also don't know what its like to be ignored by the Armed Forces while sitting at home asking mom to make me meatloaf.

Which one is it.  

This is yet another example of your constant fabrications in order to gain acceptance in this forum.
