AFP: RSVP TODAY for a Taxpayer Town Hall in Scottsdale, May 7th

Dear Valley Taxpayers and Tea Partiers,

Arizona has a chance to set a great example for America. Arizona has the worst budget deficit in the country, on a per-capita basis, because of the huge spending increases enacted by Gov. Janet Napolitano and the Legislature during the past six years. If Arizona can resolve this crisis without raising taxes, we will do the nation a great service. Arizona can serve as a counter-example to the dangerous national trend of tax-and-spend crisis management.

This Thursday night, May 7th, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, the Arizona Chapter of Americans for Prosperity Foundation is sponsoring a Taxpayer Town Hall meeting at the Scottsdale Civic Center Library Auditorium at 3839 N. Drinkwater, in downtown Scottsdale.

View a map to the event here.

The Appropriations Chairman of the Arizona House of Representatives, Rep. John Kavanagh (R-Scottsdale), will answer questions about the state’s budget deficit situation. Also speaking will be Goldwater Institute education policy expert Dr. Matthew Ladner. We have made room in the schedule for more than an hour of Q&A from the public. All legislators from Legislative Districts 8 and 11 have been invited to this nonpartisan event.

If you have not already done so, RSVP to infoAZ@afphq.org, and let us know you’re coming. The room seats 250 people, so we need to know as soon as possible if we will need to make accommodations for more persons. There is no charge for this event.

It is very important for Tea Partiers and other Valley taxpayers to come to this event. The town hall meetings sponsored by other organizations tend to be dominated by the spending lobbies, whose members come in large numbers to beg legislators to raise taxes and spend more of your hard-earned money.

AFP Foundation-Arizona wants to send another big THANK YOU to the thousands of taxpayer activists who came to the April 15 Tea Party at the Arizona State Capitol. You took an important stand in the fight to save our country from the Big Taxers, Big Spenders, and Big Debtors who are trying to lead us down the road toward ever-bigger government.

Like you, we are fed up with tax increases, federal bailouts, mounting debt burdens on our grandchildren, and government takeovers of the private sector (including health care).
