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.

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.”

February 20th Luncheon: Celebrating Our Club’s $63,000 ASU Scholarship Endowment for Conservative College Students!

We Did It! Now Please Help Us Celebrate!Did it
In 2016, our club set out to accomplish what many thought a Herculean task: to raise $50,000 for an ASU endowment scholarship fund to support conservative students attending ASU’s Political Thought & Leadership program.
And because of an incredibly generous group of Palo Verde Republican Women, we not only met our goal, but we exceeded it! As of today, our endowment totals $63,000! Enough to provide two sizeable scholarships per semester, in perpetuity! So…
It’s about time that we celebrate!
Join us on February 20th as Dr. Donald Critchlow, the program’s director, and others discuss the status of the ASU program, how the program is impacting conservative students, as well as how our club’s endowment will help finance the educational needs of deserving ASU conservative students for years to come.
But that’s not all! We’ll hear from Faith Graham, a member of Arizona’s Teenage Republicans (TARS). She will brief us on her experience attending last year’s annual trip to Washington DC. Faith was able to partially fund the trip with a donation made to her by our club!
Meeting Details:
The cost of the luncheon is $35. Your reservation MUST be made by Friday, February 8th at 10 am to ensure a seat. For a faster check in on the day of the luncheon, please pay by cash or check!

November 28th Luncheon: Dr. Matthew Keene to Speak on the Opioid Crisis

OpioidsPlease note that our November luncheon takes place on Wednesday, November 28th. Since the third Wednesday of November is the day before Thanksgiving, we changed the date!

November is the month when Americans honor our veterans.
As we honor our veterans this 11th month of 2018, we need to be mindful of their struggles. Join us on November 28th, as Dr. Matthew Keene educates us on the topic of opioids and their impact on our veterans as well as our country’s general population. Dr. Keene is a veteran of the military himself and has committed his life to assisting individuals in overcoming their addictions.
The opioid crisis, which killed more than 42,000 Americans in 2016, continues to devastate the country. And our veterans may be one of the populations hardest hit. Over the last eight or so years, opioid statistics suggest veterans are twice as likely to die from accidental opioid overdoses than non-veterans. In addition, treating veterans’ chronic pain almost exclusively with opioids has led to addictions and a fatal overdose rate twice the national average.
Join us on November 28th to find out more about this far-reaching problem devastating our nation.
The cost of the luncheon is $35. Your reservation MUST be made by Friday, November 23rd at 10 am to ensure a seat. For a faster check in on the day of the luncheon, please pay by cash or check!
To make a reservation for our luncheon, contact us by email: pvrwlunch111@yahoo.com.
