AFP-Arizona is hosting Liberty Celebrations throughout Arizona in December to honor your legislators and local government officials who have earned the designation of “Friend of the Taxpayer” or higher on our 2015 Legislative Scorecard and 2015 Local Government Scorecard. We are grateful for their efforts to fight for limited government and economic freedom for everyday Arizonans.
For our Phoenix Liberty Celebration, it is our pleasure to honor State Senator David Farnsworth (R-Mesa) with our highest award, Barry M. Goldwater Legislator of the Year Award, and Gilbert Councilmen Victor Petersen and Jared Taylor with John W. Dawson Local Hero Awards. Each will receive a mounted jackalope* for their tireless commitment to limited government and economic liberty in Arizona.
A light meal with beverage will be provided at the events. Please RSVP so we can have enough for all attendees.
Confirmed attendees (as of 12/16): State Senator David Farnsworth, State Senator Debbie Lesko, State Senator Nancy Barto, State Representative Anthony Kern, State Senator Don Shooter, State Representative Warren Petersen, State Representative Paul Boyer, State Representative Michelle Ugenti-Rita, State Representative Rick Gray, State Representative Kelly Townsend, State Representative Phil Lovas, Gilbert Council Member Victor Petersen, Gilbert Council Member Jared Taylor
Come and celebrate their efforts for promoting liberty and wellbeing in Arizona!
*Think that jackalopes do not exist? Well, that’s how a lot of taxpayers feel when we tell them that there are pro-taxpayer elected officials in state and local government. But they really do exist! And we plan to honor them at our celebrations. Please join us!
