Republican Club October 12 Meeting

The Sun Lakes Republican Club will feature “What’s on My Ballot” with Scot Mussi, president and executive director of the Arizona Free Enterprise Club, at its monthly meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 12, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., in the Navajo Room at Sun Lakes Country Club, at 25601 S. Sun Lakes Blvd., in Sun Lakes. The public is invited and encouraged to attend. Our mission is “Education for an Informed Electorate.” Members are advised that seating is limited and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Audience capacity is only 180 in this room, so please plan to arrive a bit earlier than usual to get your preferred seat.

As of Sept. 9, 2022, 10 statewide ballot measures were certified for the Nov. 8, 2022, Arizona ballot. Ballot citizen-initiative measures often change the tax and regulatory environment of our state with unintended negative consequences that cannot be “fixed” by our elected representatives in the state legislature. This is due to changes made to our Arizona Constitution by an earlier ballot proposition. Therefore, it is very important for Arizona citizens to be well-informed and carefully consider all propositions on our ballot prior to voting.

One important ballot measure creates the office of lieutenant governor to be elected on a joint ticket with the governor and to succeed the governor in case of vacancy. Another measure requires a date of birth and voter identification number for mail-in ballots and eliminates a two-document alternative to photo ID for in-person voting.

Our keynote speaker is Scot Mussi, president of the Arizona Free Enterprise Club, a non-profit organization formed in 2005. Mussi joined the Free Enterprise Club in 2013 and was named president a year later. Congressman Andy Biggs stated, “When it comes to protecting taxpayers and taking on entrenched special interests, there isn’t a more effective organization at the legislature than the Free Enterprise Club.”

For over a decade, the Arizona Free Enterprise Club has been the only organization in the state dedicated to advancing pro-growth, limited government policies in Arizona. Through advocacy at the state capitol, their mission of promoting economic freedom and a vibrant Arizona economy has led to several policy victories, including substantial income tax cuts, regulatory rollback to promote entrepreneurial growth, and protection of property rights and free speech.

Invited candidates will also be presenting their vision for balancing life, liberty, and security.

Save the Date: Please plan to join us for a Cowboy Christmas Dinner Dance on Wednesday, Dec. 7, from 5 to 9 p.m., in Cottonwood Country Club ballroom. Music and entertainment will be provided by Harry Mathews with a “Western Gunslinger Buffet” of BBQ chicken and beef ribs. Tickets will be available for $35 at the meeting on a first-come, first-served basis. A cash bar will be available.
