David Morgan, of the Cochise County Record, published a report by Jonathon Shacat, an internationally recognized journalist who was denied access to public information while researching a story on the current crossings along the border.
The 11th Signal Brigade Headquarters is moving from Fort Huachuca, to Foot Hood, Texas. Without the Border Patrol and the Fort Huachuca payrolls, Cochise County would be in a deep recession.
According to Bill Hess, of the Sierra Vista Herald, the 40th Expeditionary Signal Battalion will remain at the fort. Moving the 11th HQ will lose at least one hundred jobs, while 500 jobs will remain with the 40th Battalion.
Two years ago, a mentally ill young man shot me in the head, killed six of my constituents, and wounded 12 others. Since that terrible day, America has seen 11 more mass shootings but no response from Congress to prevent gun violence. After the massacre of 20 children and six of their teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary though, it’s clear: This time must be different.
Americans for Responsible Solutions will encourage elected officials to stand up for solutions to prevent gun violence and protect responsible gun ownership by communicating directly with the constituents that elect them.
