Carolyn McCorkle, First Vice Chair, SLRC
The Sun Lakes Republican Club will feature “Election Year Insights” with Congressman Andy Biggs and Mike Broomhead, KTAR 92.3 FM morning radio host, at its monthly meeting Tuesday, Oct. 13, 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! Please bring your neighbors and friends! If we are not permitted to meet at the Country Club due to health restrictions, members will be notified of an alternate location.
Mike Broomhead moved to KTAR-FM after hosting with KFYI since 2005. He uses his business and life experience to address the issues challenging Arizona citizens. Rooted in fiscal and social conservatism, he champions the freedoms of Americans and brings the hottest issues to his listeners. His interview with Congressman Biggs will focus on this election year in view of America’s founding principles. Some have never learned about our unique American Heritage and the incredible “Freedom Formula” that our Founders gave their lives to establish. Broomhead will highlight liberties enshrined in our U.S. Constitution that are at risk if voters forget them!
Congressman Biggs is an Arizona native and retired attorney. He has earned a bachelor’s degree in Asian studies, an M.A. in political science from ASU, and a J.D. from University of Arizona.
