Republican Club meets September 11

Carolyn McCorkle The Sun Lakes Republican Club will

feature “Protecting the American Homeland: 9/11

Remembered” with special guest

speaker State Senator Russell Pearce at its regular meeting Tuesday, September 11, at 6:30 p.m. in the Arizona Room of Sun Lakes Country Club, 25601 S. Sun Lakes Blvd., Sun Lakes, AZ 85248. Our guest speaker is the now-famous

sponsor of SB 1070, “Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhood Act,” which recently was reviewed and partially upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court. [www.]. Due to the lack of enforcement of existing laws, 9,000 Americans die each year at the hands of illegal aliens. Border security is a national security issue. Former State Senator Russell Pearce is

a fi fth generation Arizonan who has two of his sons in law enforcement. Russell Pearce served in the Maricopa County Sheriff’s

Offi ce, the fourth largest Sheriff’s offi ce in the nation, for 23 years, achieving the rank of Chief Deputy. He was awarded the “Medal of Valor,” which is the highest award given in law enforcement for exceptional bravery. While serving as our State Senate president, Pearce was recognized as the No. 1 legislator as “Hero of the Taxpayer” by the Americans for Prosperity. He also was recognized by the Goldwater Institute as the No. 1 Legislator who “proved to be the strongest ally…against government encroachment on liberty.” In addition, Jinny Perron, director of the

East Valley Pro-Life Alliance, will present “United for Life and Liberty” and introduce us to the exciting work of their newly formed 501(c)(3) organization. AZ State Senator Steve Yarbrough will

educate us on the threats to our liberty posed by some of the 2012 election ballot issues. For more information, please visit our website, or contact Mike Tennant at 480-802-0178. 
