Arizona TARS Double Membership in 2012

Arizona TARS Double Membership in 2012

Dissatisfaction With Economic and Jobs Outlook Under President Barrack Obama a Driving Influence

Phoenix, AZ, March 19, 2012: Arizona Federation of Teen Age Republicans (AZ TARS) has had over a 90% increase in membership over the past year. The Organization has also seen a large increase in the number of student run Clubs chartered this year as well, touting a 100% increase in the last 6 months. Most new members and clubs registered have been due to the increasing unpopularity in Arizona of President Barrack Obama and his policies that affect teens.

“Young adults are among one of the Nation’s most unemployed demographics and are keenly aware of the hardships their families are seeing due to the lagging economy”, Executive Director of AZ TARS, Dusti Martin said. She also noted that, “These students are motivated. They are dissatisfied with the current Administration and its agenda and they are determined to make a difference. We have not seen a membership increase like this in Arizona in over a decade.”

Arizona TARS was started in the 1970’s by State Adviser Lois J. Fitch to educate and involve students in their local, state and national civic processes. The National Teenage Republicans was started 10 years earlier in the 1960’s and is also seeing a dramatic increase across the nation. Notable former AZ TARS include Congressman David Schweikert and former State Treasurer Dean Martin as well as many other locally elected officials.
