Constitutional scholar, Jeff  Utsch, delivered a keynote speech focusing on the intent of the wording in our Constitution relating to current issues and demonstrated how many politicians are spinning their own version of our honored document to curry favor with the electorate.  He urged our members to always be familiar with our Constitution and when questioned on issues to refer back to the intent of our founding fathers.

Senator Vince Leach, Representative Bret Roberts and Representative Mark Finchem stirred up the  crowd as they shared their experiences on the floor of the Arizona Senate and the Arizona House of Representatives.

As the meeting drew to a close, Director of Events, Ana Henderson, awarded many ‘patriotic’ door prizes much to the delight of the members.

The HOA1 Activity Room rang with laughter, applause, friendly interaction and lively conversation as the members of  the SaddleBrooke Republican Club celebrated America’s birthday.
