CELEBRATE THE SECOND AMENDMENT WITH VERNON PARKER
Congressional Candidate to Host Concealed Carry Course Fundraiser
On Saturday, February 20th, congressional candidate Vernon Parker will host a concealed weapon carry course taught by expert instructor Jim Neff of Generation Firearms. Parker is a staunch supporter of the Second Amendment, and will be earning his own concealed carry permit at the event. Neff is a highly regarded firearms training expert, and the course will be limited to 30 individuals. The course will start at 7AM and runs 10 hours. The cost is $85. Contributions to Parker’s campaign for Arizona Congressional District 3 will be accepted.
Parker announced an exploratory committee for Governor on September 23rd and since then raised his seed money faster than Governor Brewer, generated endorsements and excitement across the state and was on track to qualify for Clean Elections funding next month.
However, since the surprising announcement by Congressman John Shadegg that he will not seek re-election, Parker has been called by dozens of supporters and state leaders encouraging him to consider a run for the Congressional District Three Republican nomination.
Paradise Valley lies in the heart of the district, where just two years ago Parker garnered a record number of votes in his initial run for office.
Parker, 50, is the current mayor of Paradise Valley, Arizona. He previously served as General Counsel of the United States Office of Personnel Management, then in the White House as Special Assistant to President George H.W. Bush. Later, Parker was nominated by President George W. Bush and unanimously confirmed with bipartisan support by the United States Senate, as an Assistant Secretary at the United States Department of Agriculture. A small businessman, Parker also served as a pastor for two years at a small non-denominational church in Paradise Valley. He is a graduate of Georgetown Law School in Washington, D.C., where he met his wife Lisa.
Parker’s life story is compelling. Raised by his grandmother in a severely underprivileged neighborhood in Long Beach, California, Parker was able to escape the drugs and violence through love, education and the commitment of family.
