Politics on the Rocks is honored to announce that Unites States Congressman Jeff Flake will speak at our upcoming networking event on Tuesday, May 29th 6:00 PM at The Mint located at 7373 E. Camelback Rd. in Scottsdale. This free event is open to the public. Come meet, take a picture with, and hear directly from Congressman Flake. Please feel free to bring your friends and to forward this invite to your co-workers and fellow networkers. Part restaurant, part ultra-lounge, The Mint occupies a 7,000 square foot space that was previously a bank, giving inspiration to the name. In a nod to its past, The Mint’s centerpiece is the original vault door, whil e updated touches evoke a Hollywood Regency design influence. For more information on The Mint, please visit their website.
Jeff Flake, presently serving his sixth term in Congress, represents the Sixth Congressional District of Arizona. This district includes parts of Mesa and Chandler and all of Gilbert, Queen Creek, and Apache Junction. Jeff serves on the House Committee on Appropriations.
Jeff is a fifth-generation Arizonan, raised on a ranch in Snowflake, Arizona (the town was named, in part, after Jeff's great-great grandfather). After serving a Mormon mission in southern Africa, Jeff graduated from Brigham Young University, where he received a B.A. in International Relations and an M.A. in Political Science. More importantly, it was at BYU that Jeff met his wife, Cheryl.
In 1987, Jeff started his career at a public affairs firm in Washington, D.C. Soon thereafter, Jeff moved to the southern African nation of Namibia. As the Executive Director of the Foundation for Democracy, a foundation monitoring Namibia's independence process, he saw the nation usher in freedom and democracy. In 1992, Jeff and his family moved back to Arizona where he was named Executive Director of the Goldwater Institute. In this role, Jeff worked to promote a conservative philosophy of less government, more freedom, and individual responsibility.
Jeff and Cheryl have been married 26 years and live in Mesa. They have five children. For more information on Congressman Jeff Flake, please visit his website.
Our charity of the month is the American Foundation for Cardiomyopathy. Anthony Miller and other representatives from this charity will be on hand at the event with information on the charity and how you can get involved. Cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle. Cardiomyopathy is the leading cause of sudden cardiac arrest in people under 30, and is a leading cause of death among student athletes. When you read about a child suddenly dying during a basketball or football game, the cause is usually undiagnosed Cardiomyopathy. For more information on American Foundation for Cardiomyopathy, please take a look at their website.
