Credits former Attorney General with saving Luke AFB, delivering billions annually

PHOENIX - Peoria Mayor Bob Barrett endorsed Terry Goddard today for Arizona Secretary of State. Barrett's is the latest in a long line of bipartisan endorsements from community leaders like Surprise Mayor Sharon Wolcott (I), Cochise County Attorney Ed Rheinheimer (R) and former Maricopa County Attorney Rick Romley (R). 

"I am honored to have Mayor Barrett's support," said Goddard. "The Secretary of State needs to treat all voters fairly, regardless of party and my experience working across the aisle demonstrates that ability."

Goddard vows to fight new version of SB1062

Says all voters should be treated fairly

PHOENIX – Responding to reports that some legislators are looking to introduce a new version of the infamous right to discriminate bill, Terry Goddard today pledged to fight any attempt to deny Arizonans equal treatment under the law.

According to a report in the Arizona Republic, some legislators who supported SB1062 are now encouraging individual county clerks to refuse to issue marriage licenses to LGBT couples. Those same legislators are considering introducing “legislation similar to SB1062” in January.

Legislature created opening for Dark Money

State Sen. Reagan voted to end registration of charities

PHOENIX – With anonymous corporate cash already flowing into Arizona, the legislature voted last year to strip the Secretary of State’s authority to make charities register – removing one of the only tools the Secretary of State had to shed light on Dark Money.

Despite opposition from the Arizona Nonprofit Alliance and numerous legitimate charity organizations, state Senator Michele Reagan voted to remove these powers from the office she now seeks.

In an op-ed in the Green Valley News on Sunday, Terry Goddard outlined why this vote has been so detrimental to Arizona.

Ending charity registration aided Dark Money |Green Valley News

When I was Attorney General, people would frequently ask me to investigate charities they had reason to believe might be ripping off consumers. While my budget didn’t allow me to investigate each case, I could at least tell people to check whether the charity was registered with the Secretary of State as a good indicator of legitimacy. If it was not registered, chances were good it was a fraud!

Until 2013, it was a crime in Arizona for a charity to raise money in our state without first registering with the Secretary of State. But, not anymore!

My statement on marriage equality in Arizona

Today's legal decision isn't just a victory for gay and lesbian Arizonans whose equality under the law is rightfully being recognized. Today is a recognition that basic fairness trumps short-term political interests and crass attempts to divide our state.

It was only nine months ago that the Arizona legislature voted to legalize discrimination by passing SB1062. Today, we're celebrating diversity and equality.

I want to congratulate every Arizonan who fought for this day. When I first started working and campaigning with LGBT groups in the early 1980s, it was hard to believe this day would come. I can't express how glad I am that it has.

I hope today's news gives politicians more courage in the future to stand with communities who aren't being treated fairly -- no matter what the political pressure.
