The following organizations endorsed McGuire
in her past candidacy for
state representative in LD23 -


These endorsements do not get handed out easily, and they are not based on candidate’s positions on social issues. Our country is experiencing the worst economic conditions it has seen in generations. Railroads, however, continue to make tremendous profits. As American workers, we really need to set aside the social issues that so often divide us and focus our efforts together to put friends of Labor (us) into positions where they can do what needs to be done to advance the interests of our members and their families. We really need to line up together this political season.
I am asking you to support the endorsed candidate.
LD23 Barbara McGuire

Dear Representative McGuire:
Congratulations on your primary election victory. AEA looks forward to working with you to achieve a victory in the general election.
AEA’s 34,000 members understand the need to change our legislature from one where the majority refuses to make quality public education a priority to one with a pro-public education majority. Working together, we hope to achieve that on November 4.
We stand ready to assist you in your election effort. If you would like to discuss how we might be able to help, please contact Doug Kilgore at 602-407-2333. He will be glad to provide assistance and coordinate any support we are able to provide.
I would also like to invite you to attend an important community conversation about education in Arizona following the PBS documentary Where We Stand hosted by Judy Woodruff on September 16. Details are below. For complete directions and details, register today by visiting the Arizona K-12 Center’s Web site. This event will provide you an opportunity to connect with supporters of public education through a conversation about our public schools.
Again, congratulations on your victory.

Arizona Alliance for Retired Americans Announces the 2008 Primary Endorsements
Phoenix, AZ – Today, the Arizona Alliance for Retired Americans announced its Primary Election endorsements for the state legislative races.  The endorsements were made based on a survey regarding senior issues sent to all candidates.  The Arizona Alliance for Retired Americans represents almost 10,000 members in seventeen chapters within the state of Arizona.  Our members participate in advocating and supporting legislation and public policies that protect the health and economic security of retirees, seniors, and their families.  We endorse candidates for the Arizona Legislature who support and sponsor legislation that is beneficial to the improvement of the quality of life for our members, retirees, and seniors.  These endorsements will be recommended to our members throughout the state.
“It is a pleasure to endorse candidates that will advocate on behalf of retirees, seniors and their families.  We feel confident that these candidates will share our passion in being a voice for retirees in this state,” said Arizona Alliance for Retired Americans President Doug Hart.
The mission of the Arizona Alliance for Retired Americans is to ensure social and economic justice and full civil rights for all citizens so that they may enjoy lives of dignity, personal and family fulfillment and security. The Alliance believes that all older and retired persons have a responsibility to strive to create a society that incorporates these goals and rights and that retirement provides them with opportunities to pursue new and expanded activities with their unions, civic organizations and their communities.

"Hon. Senator Bob Chastain, retired (d)

Kearny, AZ 85237


Dear Voters:


I have known Barbara McGuire since I was the Superintendent at Ray District Schools and when she was a young girl in the school system at Ray District in Kearny. Barbie is a likeable person and grew up with my daughters. "Barbie" was an accomplished athlete, cheerleader, local Pioneer Day Queen and a good student who never got into any trouble. I consider Barbara to be a success story of the Ray Schools system. Barbara was educated in District 23 and has lived and worked in the district all her life. She knows the district and its people.


When I retired from the Ray Schools system , entered politics and became a State Representative and later State Senator, I continued to watch Barbara as she married, became a mother and grandmother and grow as a person and business owner and thrive through hard work and caring dedication to the Copper Basin area and its citizens.


As an elected official, I was aware of her help to others in her important role as the Salvation Army Extension Unit Director for nearly two decades already in the Copper Basin. Barbara began programs as the Christmas Tree Angel and Summer Youth Camps that have provided so many with hope and opportunity who otherwise would not have had this. During periods of economic hardship to the area as in the copper workers strike, Barbara joined forces to get enough financial and humanitarian assistance to see the area through this difficult time so that families and the communities would survive.


I feel confident if you join me in electing Barbara as your State Representative for District 23 that she would bring her talents and hard work to improve and sustain the legacy of myself and others for the good of the future of District 23. I recommend you vote to elect Barbara McGuire as your next State Representative of District 23.


Thank you for the opportunity to express myself for Barbara and thank you for the many years of your support and association as your former Ray Schools Superintendent, State Representative and State Senator.





Senator Bob Chastain, retired"

From The Copper Basin News
May 23, 2006
"Admittedly, I know very little about politics, campaigns, and election requirements, however I do have a keen sixth sense regarding what the good people of thsi area are made of.
I have known and respected Barbie McGuire, Judy Parsons, and Tom Elliott for many years and found it a breath of fresh air that these Top Shelf people have teamed up in the "Barbie" for State Representative campaign in District 23.
Barbie was born here in the Ray-Sonora area. In 2004 she was elected our Citizen of the Year. She runs a hometown small business and her respected husband, Jim is a local union member. The McGuire family has a clear understanding of the challenges we all face during adversity. She knows what it's like to try to keep the family business doors open during depressed times and high taxes.
I have worked various charity projects with Barbie, as she is the local director of the Salvation Army, she has great compassion for those less fortunate and many times digs into her own pocket to help those in need.
Barbie's campaign is pursuing a goal of 252 or more $5.00 contributions form qualified electors. Barbie needs "seed money" however her goal is to stay within the parameters of the Clean Election rules, which means individuals not businesses, unions, PACs, etc. must be the ones to contribute.
I am just one individual registered to vote here in District 23. While I am neither a Democrat nor Republican, I hope she will allow me to help. We simply need Top Shelf, dedicated hometown people of compassion, hard work ethics and integrity like Barbie McGuire to represent all the good people of District 23.
