November 16th Luncheon: Judicial Watch’s Mark Spencer!

We’re so excited to share that our November 16th speaker is Mark Spencer, the Southwest Projects Coordinator for Judicial Watch.

As you know, Judicial Watch, through Freedom of Information requests, was instrumental in uncovering the fact that Hillary Clinton was using a secret server while working as the Secretary of State under President Obama. Spencer facilitates investigations, development and community outreach, media relations, FOIA requests and litigative support for the non-partisan non-profit government accountability group.  
We certainly hope that you can join us! And hopefully we’ll be celebrating a great big presidential win! Keep your fingers crossed, and PRAY!

spencer-headshot-pic-jw-capMore About Mark Spencer:

Spencer currently serves in a chaplain capacity for the Republican Party of Maricopa County and the Usual Suspects (a non-profit retired police motorcycle club.

Mark Spencer has lived in Phoenix Arizona since 1975, and was the top overall police recruit from the Phoenix Regional Police Academy in 1987. While still a sworn first-responder, he partnered with F.A.I.R. (Federation for American Immigration Reform) and Judicial Watch in reference to front-line law enforcement perspectives on illegal immigration and government corruption.

For fourteen years, Spencer was an executive board member of the largest police association in Arizona, the Phoenix Law Enforcement Association (PLEA). His role as the voice of the largest police association in Arizona garnered him the title as being one of “three of the most polarizing figures in Arizona politics” by the Phoenix New Times in 2011.

His retirement from the Phoenix Police Department in January 2012 ended a 25-year career in which Spencer and the PLEA team cultivated powerful community partnerships and facilitated unprecedented bipartisan support for rights of Arizona law enforcement.

Spencer has been interviewed by local, international (CNN), and national (Fox National News) cable news outlets, has been quoted in numerous print publications (The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Nation, The Arizona Republic, Phoenix Magazine) and has participated on radio talk shows across the country:  topics discussed included illegal immigration, police suicide, border violence, and police management pension violations.

Palo Verde RW Says No to the Legalization of Marijuana in Arizona

No to Marijuana

A Resolution pointing out the reasons to vote against legalizing marijuana in Arizona passed unanimously at our April 20th meeting! We already have enough problems with alcohol addiction and doctor prescribed pain killers. Why would we want to legalize another drug that will lead to even more substance abuse? We must vote no on the legalization of marijuana in our state. Here’s why…

Resolution Against Legalizing Marijuana in the State of Arizona

WHEREAS, Since the citizens of Colorado were the first to vote to legalize marijuana in 2012, “teen use [of marijuana] has risen dramatically and is now 74 percent higher than the national average;” and

WHEREAS, Since legalization of marijuana in 2012, “Colorado has seen an increase in marijuana-related traffic fatalities, hospitalization and emergency visits, as well as marijuana-related calls to poison control centers;” and

WHEREAS, “Today’s marijuana is a harmful, psychoactive, addictive substance that is much more potent than ever before – at least five times more powerful than the marijuana of the 1970s;” and

WHEREAS, “The American College of Pediatricians reported grave risks for youth: ‘Marijuana is addicting and has adverse effects upon the adolescent brain, is a risk for both cardio-respiratory disease and testicular cancer, and is associated with both psychiatric illness and negative social outcomes;’” and

WHEREAS, “The U.S. Attorney for the District of Colorado reported that illicit or black market drug activity in Colorado has not subsided since legalization and in fact, has increased;” and

WHEREAS, “The initiative permits possession of one ounce of marijuana (60 marijuana joints) and an additional six marijuana plants per household (one plant can produce a rough average of 300 joints), one home could easily produce 1,800 joints under the proposed law;” and

WHEREAS, “We know the costs associated with drop-outs, suspensions, and expulsions are exceedingly high, more than $400,000 per high school student in Arizona, and that marijuana use increases the risk of dropping out and lowers educational outcomes for youth”; therefore be it

RESOLVED, That the Palo Verde Republican Women strongly urge all Arizonans to vote NO to legalizing marijuana when voting in the general election to be held on November 8, 2016.
