Republican Club to meet April 9

The Sun Lakes Republican Club will feature “Issues and Answers” with Judicial Watch Southwest Projects Coordinator Mark Spencer at its regular meeting on Tuesday, April 9, at 6:30 p.m. in the Arizona Room of the Sun Lakes Country Club, 25601 S. Sun Lakes Blvd., Sun Lakes, AZ 85248. The public is invited. (This is the program that was originally scheduled for February and had to be rescheduled at the last minute due to electrical problems at the country club.)

Judicial Watch is a non-partisan educational foundation that promotes accountability and integrity in government, politics and the law. Judicial Watch is based in Washington, D.C., and seeks to fulfill its mission to prosecute government corruption through litigation, investigation and public outreach because “No one is above the law.”

For over 25 years, Mark had the privilege of protecting both the citizens of Phoenix and Phoenix police officers. As a police officer, he acquired a first-hand perspective and appreciation of policing strategies that were both effective and ethical. The ability to cultivate community partnerships and support for rank and file law enforcement personnel was a crucial component in Mark’s role as an executive board member and President of the Phoenix Law Enforcement Association.

A continued dedication to proactive accountability for political entities, community quality of life issues and the rule of law has led Mark to an exciting platform and common-sense partnership with Judicial Watch. Spencer is a dynamic speaker with a wealth of information and a passion for what he does. He has been interviewed by international (CNN) and national cable news outlets (Fox National News) and has been quoted in The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Nation.

In addition to our guest speaker, you will also meet the newly-elected Chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Party, Rae Chornenky. A Constitutional Law Attorney for the past 32 years, Chornenky is a former President of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) who has traveled to all states presenting on the Republican Party platform. She was also a speaker at the 2012 Republican National Convention. An Arizona native, Rae was chosen a Fellow by the Arizona State University Leadership Policy Program and served as President of the Arizona Federation of Republican Women. She was on the Arizona Superior Court Bench for five years and was a Constitutional law professor, as well as a Prosecutor of Organized Crime and Racketeering. Chornenky appears in print, radio and television media, both nationally and internationally.
