  6. Our next speaker was Scot Mussi, President of the Free Enterprise Club of AZ He discussed the propositions on the 2022 ballot and explained the stances of the Free Enterprise Club on each one.
  7. Finally our “Keynote Speaker” Blake Masters, Republican Candidate for US Senate from AZ, spoke. He made the importance of this election clear and pointed out how we need to have the majority in the Senate if we want to start to fix what has happened in our state and country after just 2 devastating years under democratic control. Afterwards there was time for Q&A from the audience.
  8. AZ State Senator JD Mesnard gave a brief talk about his campaign and the election. He encouraged us to support candidates who are running as Republicans and to vote because the democrat’s (extremists from out of state) have dumped millions of dollars to try to defeat him and them. Our LD13 is pivotal to keeping a majority in the AZ Legislature.
  9. Lastly Kurt Rohrs spoke about the importance of getting Republicans on the Chandler school board so as to protect our children from indoctrination going on in the schools.

  11. The meeting in November will be Nov. 9 at 6:30 PM. The speakers will be Keith DeGreen and Cindy Biggs. What are the founding principles of America? Is Government of the people, by the people, and for the people simply a failed experiment? Are we adults in charge of our fate, or are we children to be coddled by a nanny state? What are the roots of democratic capitalism? Is American exceptionalism a myth? How has free enterprise accommodated society’s changing needs? Are there better alternatives, as some contend? Most importantly, how can we defend our Republic for future generations? What post-election policies might we expect out of Washington? What will be the impact of the election on the national economy and the markets? These are just a few of the questions that will be addressed by speaker Keith DeGreen.
