Early ballots are out And, I wanted to give a very strong statement of support for two excellent people for the State Legislature and Pinal County. Joe Ortiz, an excellent leader, motivator, and someone whom shall make Pinal proud is the clear choice for State Senate.
I have known Joe for years and he has always given his best, listened to others and been strong in his convictions. Joe will make an excellent State Senator. TJ Shope will be a true asset for Pinal County as State Representative and I encourage all to “single Shot” TJ.
This is where a voter although may vote for two for this office, instead votes for just one. It doubles the vote potential and TJ is worth it. Frank Pratt, while a nice guy has been a pathetic legislator. He is happy just to be elected and a “good guy.” Frank was rated a friend of big government from the Americans for prosperity and has a lackluster rating from most Republican groups.
Meanwhile, leadership is what TJ Shope is all about, He has shown maturity and dedication in everything that he has taken on and is an excellent person to take my place. I ask all that have supported me to “single shot” TJ shope, and let Pratt”s name identification carry him for the number two spot and insure that Pinal County’s LD 8 has at least one leader in the House of Representatives to serve with him.
/s/John M. Fillmore
State Representative LD 23
