CAROL HOWERTON, IST VICE CHAIR

I was born and raised in Southern California to a working class family. Our family moved to Arizona in 1972 due to my father’s health, since he didn’t have health insurance and he couldn’t obtain insurance due to having had a heart attack. I became the first in our family to go to college and attended ASU.

I understand the hardships that families and seniors are having to endure today with under-employment, unemployment, the high cost of college tuition, crushing student loans and stagnant incomes. Helping people in financial distress has been my passion for over 10 years and I regularly teach financial workshops in the Phoenix area.

Dennis and I moved to Flagstaff in 2004 when he retired and relocated to Maricopa in 2009. I enjoy cooking and gardening and became a Pinal County Cooperative Extension Master Gardener in 2011.

DENNIS HOWERTON, 2ND VICE CHAIR

I was born in La Mesa, California and spent the first 55 years of my life in East San Diego, National City, and Scripps Ranch. When I retired, Carol and I moved to Arizona, living 5 years in Flagstaff and residing in Maricopa since 2009.

My lifelong commitment to public service: 25 years serving the people of San Diego, retiring as Code Enforcement Supervisor, overseeing six POST certified field officers in the investigation of violations of the San Diego Municipal Code and the California Penal Code, issuing citations, and preparing cases for prosecution. Case preparation includes gathering and securing evidence, conducting interviews, obtaining documentation, taking photos, and researching the law as to how it applies to each specific violation.

In San Diego and Flagstaff, I served on the Board of Directors of several HOA's as President and Vice-President

Serving on the Board of Directors of my Union gave me the opportunity and privilege of being an advocate for workers rights that included service on picket lines defending my brothers and sisters of the labor movement in their fight for fair wages and a workplace free of discrimination.

With the support of my Union, I have taken many courageous stands against government corruption, favoritism, and misappropriation of funds. Two grand Juries confirmed and expanded on the findings of my investigative reports with extensive changes in procedures and personnel. As a result of the first report, I was part of a six member taskforce that revised the San Diego Municipal Code to make it more effective in prosecutions. The 2nd Grand Jury dealt with my report of favoritism, misappropriation of funds, and falsification of government documents by the City Attorney and members of his staff. I assisted in a year and a half criminal investigation of the prior city prosecutor conducted by the California Attorney General's office. In all of this, I placed ethics and integrity above job security.

In San Diego and Flagstaff, I served on the Board of Directors of several HOA's as President and Vice-President

In Arizona, I have spoken out against the corruption within the Maricopa County Sheriffs Office under Joe Arpaio and against the corrupt practices and policies of the Pinal County Sheriffs Office under Paul Babeu. In 2012, I was Campaign Manager for John Rowan in his run for Sheriff of Maricopa County. In 2014, I ran for Constable of the Maricopa-Stanfield Justice Court of Pinal County receiving 40% of the vote.
