Tempe's Hugh Hallman, working for the Feds and the UN
Peggy McClain 8-6-14
Each election cycle we hold out hope that this year it will be different. This is it, the last chance to save our country, we say to ourselves over and over.
The candidates do a great job spinning their records and explaining why they voted or didn't vote a certain way. They smile, shake hands, hand out business cards, and pound the airwaves with endless commercials.
And every two years we are disappointed with the same outcome--more government, taxes, and top-down bureaucracies. Yet we often keep electing the same people. I ask you, if you owned a business and one of your employees didn't measure up, would you let them go or reward them with a higher paying job?
We voters seem to reward many of our politicians with promotions and more power. Some earn it, but most don't.
Former Tempe Mayor Hugh Hallman is running for State Treasurer. He has a great story to tell of his leadership in Tempe. But under his watch we had tax increases and larger debt. He will deny this, but now with the internet it is much easier to research a candidate and his or her convictions.
Mayor Hallman has also headed the highly regarded Tempe Prep Academy. He signed on with Common Core, an unconstitutional federal program. He may respond by saying he was forced into Common Core by the State of Arizona. That may be true. But have you seen any documentation of Mayor Hallman standing up against Common Core?
I have attached two documents below clearly linking Hallman with Common Core while heading Tempe Prep.
Tempe has also been associated with ICLEI, part of Agenda 21, which allows the United Nations to regulate cities, towns, and private property. Several times Mayor Hallman and Tempe Council members were questioned about the Tempe/ICLEI relationship and they all denied it. Why is Hugh Hallman the contact person? See name #15 in the attached list:
While these issues may have nothing to do with being Arizona's Treasurer, they do point to the fact that we are not being told the entire story. If a candidate supports large government programs over the rights of the people and then denies it, can he be trusted? Are we going to reward an established politician with a promotion again?
