State Treasurer Dean Martin to speak at AZ Fed. of Taxpayers annual Awards luncheon

State Treasurer, Investment Fund Head to Speak at Taxpayer Lunch

The Arizona Federation of Taxpayers, a state chapter of Americans for Prosperity Foundation (AFT-AFPF), announced today that Arizona Treasurer Dean Martin will speak at the group's annual "Friend of the Taxpayer" Awards Luncheon. At a time when the budgets of most Arizona departments have grown at unsustainable levels -- exacerbating the state's growing budget deficit -- the State Treasurer's office actually cut its budget by three percent.

AFT-AFPF also announced that Dr. Thomas Borelli, principal of the Free Enterprise Action Fund, will make a presentation. The Free Enterprise Action Fund is the first mutual fund dedicated to defending the free enterprise system by directly countering the increasing influence of left-wing activists on American corporate management.

Martin and Borelli join former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson for an all-star line-up at the 2007 awards luncheon. Johnson, who cut taxes on income, gasoline, and capital gains, and halted the growth of New Mexico government, will be the keynote speaker at the awards luncheon. Johnson is the only U.S. governor to climb Mt. Everest.

The Luncheon will take place Saturday, December 15, at the Scottsdale Plaza Resort, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Seats for the luncheon are $49, and $39 for AFT-AFPF members.
