August Featured Speaker

Guest Speaker will be Tim Mooney.

Tim Mooney has been a political consultant for 30 years, and is a principle with the Silver Bullet Group, Morning in America and September Group Inc.

Mooney has worked with some of America’s most recognizable elected officials, including the Donald J. Trump campaign in both the primaries and general election, the largest corporations and most powerful trade associations, including as a political director for the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB).

Mooney’s enviable win record on ballot measures – 34 wins in 40 efforts – includes work on issues as varied as taxes, term limits, tort reform, secret ballots rights, education reforms as well as the recall of elected officials. He has worked on campaigns that have successfully amended state constitutions 15 times in 10 different states, and on campaigns and independent expenditures that have led to the election of over 80 members of Congress.

The Democrats have succeeded in securing a spot on the November ballot for their “Fair Elections” initiative. A few points in this initiative are same day voting, automatic, and online voter registration, and allows for voting via cell phones. This proposition is backed by California billionaires and is just the beginning of their plan. We must stop it. 

Tim Mooney is leading the STOP PROP 209 for Arizona.
