Arizona Rep. opposes compulsory school laws

Rep. Paul Mosley on lawmaker cousins and repealing compulsory education – Arizona Capitol Times - Hank Stephenson:

May 1, 2017 - "Freshman Republican Rep. Paul Mosley of Lake Havasu City.... What’d you think of your first hundred days?
"I love every bit of this political environment. I love working votes, and killing bad bills, and working with the 90 legislators. It’s fun.... But at the same time I need to respect why I was elected, which is to shrink the size of government, to repeal more legislation than we pass, which I found is pretty much impossible.

"I used to always ask candidates, If you could repeal one law, what would it be? And they usually gave me a blank stare.
"The bill that I passed is a repeal. It repeals the isobutanol limit in gasoline. It’s an additive in fuels. All of our fuels have ethanol in them. And what isobutanol does, it makes it so the ethanol is less harmful to an engine. Ethanol eats car parts, it’s bad for cars to sit with ethanol in the tank. So people with classic cars want this isobutanol.

What else would you like to repeal?
"The number one thing I would like to repeal is the law on compulsory education.  And let me explain to make it very clear why I want to repeal this.... When my son was five in kindergarten, he missed 18 days. My son is a very brilliant kid, he gets straight As. The truancy officer called....  I was actually pretty upset about getting a call from a policeman, because if I remember correctly, it’s a $400 fine and a misdemeanor for the parent. Whether the absences are excused or not.... The schools get their funding on daily attendance. This is why I believe the law is not a good law. Because education used to be a privilege. People used to believe getting an education was something you had to be privileged to get, that you had to work hard to get. Now we basically force it down everybody’s throats..... I believe education is still a privilege, and the kids who don’t want to be there are a larger distraction to the kids who do want to be there. We’re telling kids they have to go to school, and we put fences around the schools to protect them now, and we give them a meal or two and sometimes send a backpack of food home with them. So now schools are not only tasked with educating our children, but also feeding our children. What happened to the personal responsibility of a parent to feed and educate their kids?"

  1. According to stock fraud attorneys at Fitapelli Kurta, Arizona Legislative District 5 State Representative Steven Paul Mosley, who campaigned as an independent Ameritrade broker/advisor, was terminated from his previous employer for "compliance policy violations", and anyone damaged by Representative Mosley is being asked to contact their firm. Legislative District 5 encompasses Mohave and La Paz Counties.

    Publicly available records published by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) on January 16, 2017 indicate that former Arizona-based Ameriprise Financial Services broker/adviser Stephen Mosley has been terminated from his former employer. Fitapelli Kurta is interested in hearing from investors who have complaints regarding Mr. Mosley (CRD# 4900781).

    Stephen Mosley has spent nine years in the securities industry and was most recently registered with Ameriprise Financial Services in Lake Havasu City, Arizona (2013-2016). Previous registrations include Edward Jones in Lake Havasu City, Arizona; Hartford Equity Sales Company in Henderson, Nevada; NYLife Securities in Okemos, Michigan; and NYLife Securities in Southfield, Michigan. He is currently not registered with any state or firm.

    According to his BrokerCheck report, Stephen Mosley has been discharged from one former employer.

    In November 2016 Stephen Mosley was terminated from Ameriprise Financial Services “for compliance policy violations related to complying with disciplinary action and heightened supervision, soliciting a prohibited security and suitability of a transaction.”

    “Private securities transactions” refers to the purchase, solicitation, or sale by a broker of securities not offered by his/her member firm. Such transactions are typically also not included in the firm’s official records. Both FINRA rules and federal securities law forbid selling away: Perhaps the most important regulatory codification with respect to selling away is FINRA Rule 3040, which states that “No person associated with a member shall participate in any manner in a private securities transaction” unless the transaction complies with numerous terms, including written authorization from the member firm. Investment professionals who engage in selling away may be subject to disciplinary action by FINRA or the Securities and Exchange Commission.
