Republican Club January Meeting

The Sun Lakes Republican Club will feature “Empowering Women and Protecting Life,” with guest speakers Center for Arizona Policy President Cathi Herrod and Ashley Trussel, of Arizona Life Coalition at its monthly meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 12, at 6:30 p.m., in the Navajo Room of the Sun Lakes Country Club, at 25601 S. Sun Lakes Blvd., in Sun Lakes. The public is invited! Please bring your neighbors and friends! Our mission is “education for an informed electorate.”

Life is the most basic human right. Our national charter, the Declaration of Independence, declares our most basic human rights as Americans are the rights to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness (property).” And yet, 2022 marks the 49th year anniversary of the infamous Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, which legalized abortion for any reason during all nine months of pregnancy. Recent oral arguments before the Supreme Court in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization have many asking, “Where do we go from here?” Please join us in examining the heartfelt concerns regarding this issue and learn about participation in the Saturday, Jan. 15, annual March for Life event from Ashley Trussel of the Arizona Life Coalition.

Cathi Herrod is serving her 16th year as president of Center for Arizona Policy. A champion of the pro-family movement and an award-winning public policy leader, Arizona newspapers have recognized her as one of the 10 most influential leaders at the Capitol. She is the recipient of the Family Champion Award from Focus on the Family and the William Wilberforce Award from Students for Life of America.

One hundred eighty-eight CAP-supported measures have been passed since Center for Arizona Policy made its first appearance at the state Capitol in 1996.

State Senator J.D. Mesnard also will give us his perspective on the protection of “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” and balancing the dual concerns of liberty and safety, as the 2022 state legislative session begins.

You will also meet 2022 Arizona Secretary of State candidate Senator Michelle Ugenti-Rita and Arizona Corporation Commission candidates Nick Myers and Kevin Thompson. Please join us for what promises to be an inspirational kickoff to the 2022 Election year!
