Dear Senator McGuire,

I am pleased to inform you that the Arizona Education Association Fund for Public Education, AEA's PAC, has proudly recommended you as a Friendly Incumbent legislative candidate for the Arizona Legislature in LD 8. We look forward to working with you as a recommended candidate to achieve victory in both the 2016 Primary and General Elections.

The AEA will make multiple contacts with our members to share our recommended legislative candidates. We will publish our candidate recommendations in The Advocate, our association magazine. In addition, we will include you as a pro-public education incumbent candidate on multiple direct mailings and in our other election communications and voter outreach strategies. AEA members outperform the general voting population significantly; we will encourage our members to remember and support candidates who truly support public schools, students, and those who educate and steward them.

If you would like to meet with our members from your area or share your volunteer needs with our members, please contact Stacey Morley via email at Stacey.Morley@arizonaea.org or by phone at 602-407-2309. Stacey will assist you in contacting our staff, local association leaders, and members in your district.

If you are a Clean Elections candidate and need help collecting your $5 contributions, please let Stacey know. If you are running traditional, you will receive a contribution from the AEA Fund for Public Education subsequent to its June 22 meeting.

We look forward to working with you and are honored to recommend your candidacy.

Sincerely,


Andrew F. Morrill, Chair
AEA Fund for Public Education

Dear Ms. McGuire:

On behalf of the Arizona Academy of Family Physician's (AzAFP) Family Medicine Committee, I am pleased to inform you that The Family Medicine Committee*, a campaign committee affiliated with the Arizona Academy of Family Physicians, enthusiastically endorses you and your campaign for Arizona Legislature- 2016! You are welcome to use our logo (attached) and/or our name on your promotional materials and/or your website, mailings, etc. The AzAFP is a professional association representing 1500 Family Physicians, resident physicians and medical students in Arizona. We are a state chapter of the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) that represents more than 101,000 Family Physicians nationwide.

Together with our parent organization the AAFP we can offer many helpful resources to you during the legislative session. I encourage you to visit the Robert Graham Center for Health Policy's website which can map out Arizona health professional shortage areas (HPSA) as well as its Physician Scarcity Areas (PSA) http://www.graham-center.org/rgc/home.html once you create a FREE account. This website will possibly be useful to you and your staff as a resource for understanding some of the more complex issues in primary care such as graduate medical education funding and primary care research. Also I invite you to visit www.aafp.org which has many interesting fact sheets and information about Family Medicine and primary care.

We have much work to do to rebalance the primary care workforce in Arizona to ensure that these medical students have the opportunity to remain in our state for residency training. Our mission is to enhance the health of the people of Arizona and we welcome your partnership in this endeavor. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions (Edward.paul@dignityhealth.org). We are represented by lobbyist, Susan Cannata, JD so you may also contact her at any time(SCannata@pcmlawaz.com).
