February 19, 2020 Luncheon: Corporation Commission Panel

Join us for a panel discussion among seven of our Republican candidates for Corporation Commission: Neil DeSanti, Boyd Dunn (incumbent), David Farnsworth, Lea Marquez Peterson (incumbent, appointed by Governor Ducey), Nick Meyers, Kim Owens and Eric Sloan.

We will not take questions from the floor. Please submit your questions to Karen Goldinov, President, at klgoldinov@gmail.com. Questions must be received by Wednesday, February 12th. If you do not indicate which candidate the question is to be asked of, we will assign it to a candidate.

For some background on what Arizona’s Corporation Commission does, we turn to their website, www.azcc.gov. The organization’s mission is “to ensure safe, reliable, and affordable utility services; have railroad and pipeline systems that are operated and maintained in a safe manner; grow Arizona’s economy as we help local entrepreneurs achieve their dream of starting a business; modernize an efficient, effective, and responsive government agency; and protect Arizona citizens by enforcing an ethical securities marketplace.

We hope that you will attend! This is your opportunity to hear how each of these candidates intends to ensure safe, reliable and affordable utilities for all of us. We don’t want to become another California, where rates are high, and availability is uncertain as a result of the state’s insane “green energy” policies. See you there.

January 15, 2020 Luncheon: Andrea Kadar on the Risky Proposition of Legalizing Marijuana in Arizona

Andrea Kadar speaking at a Trump Rally in Prescott Valley, Arizona.

Did you know that there is another effort afoot in Arizona to place the question of marijuana legalization back on the ballot in 2020? Before residents of Arizona go to vote on this issue for a second time, it is imperative that we learn what legalizing marijuana would mean to our state’s children, schools, highways and workplaces.

Join us at our January 15th luncheon as Andrea Kadar, a volunteer for Arizonans for Responsible Drug Policy shares with us the dangers of legalizing marijuana, a psychoactive substance that is linked to serious physical and mental health problems including increased risk of psychosis and a decreased IQ.

To learn more about the impacts of marijuana legalization, go to the Arizonans for Responsible Drug Policy website by clicking here: http://arizonansforresponsibledrugpolicy.org/.

September 18: Candidate for Maricopa County Recorder, Stephen Richer, to Provide Details on the November 2018 Election Irregularities Under Democrat County Recorder Adrian Fontes

Stephen Richer

Following the November 2018 election in Arizona and all the shenanigans surrounding it (specifically in Maricopa County), both before and after the election (remember the ballot counts that when on and on and on?), the Arizona Republican Party asked Stephen Richer to conduct an independent review of the County Recorder’s Office. Stephen did as he was asked. And he did it at no cost to the Arizona Republican Party. Join us on September 18 to find out the results of Stephen’s discovery—problems, concerns and irregularities so troubling that Stephen is now running to become the next Maricopa County Recorder.

About Stephen Richer: Stephen is a lawyer at one of Arizona’s oldest large law firms, Lewis, Roca, Rothgerber, Christie. Previously, Stephen worked for the American Enterprise Institute and the Cato Institute, which introduced him to some of the top conservative and libertarian thinkers in the world.  Stephen holds three degrees, including a law degree from The University of Chicago Law School, and he won a number of awards while in school including USA Today All-Academic Team, Phi Beta Kappa, and National Merit Scholar Finalist.

We hope to see you there!

Governor Ducey Stands Up to the Anti-American Bullies

For those of you who might have missed it, today Governor Ducey took a stand against anti-American bullies and said “hell no” to Nike.

Well done Governor Ducey, well done.

Arizona Gov. Slam-Dunks Nike: ‘We Don’t Need to Suck Up to Companies’ That Denigrate Our History

From the article at PJMedia, by John Ellis:

“For the naysayers of Gov. Ducey, this isn’t a First Amendment issue. No company, including Nike, has a constitutional right to financial incentives subsidized by taxpayers. Apart from either greed or a doubling down on their anti-American stance, nothing is stopping Nike from setting up shop in Arizona. Likewise, Ducey hasn’t ordered Arizona stores to stop selling Nike products (he hasn’t even come close to hinting that). Arizona residents remain free to purchase whatever they want from Nike.”
