Politics on the Rocks event with Grover Norquist


Politics on the Rocks is honored to host Grover Norquist, President and Founder of Americans for Tax Reform on Thursday, February 4th 6:00 PM at the Intercontinental Montelucia Resort & Spa in Paradise Valley. Norquist is considered one of the most influential Conservatives in the United States.

Grover Norquist lives in Washington D.C. and was asked by Ronald Reagan in the 1985 to create Americans for Tax Reform. ATR is a coalition of taxpayer groups, individuals and businesses opposed to higher taxes at both the federal, state and local levels. ATR organizes the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, which asks all candidates for federal and state office to commit themselves in writing to oppose all tax increases.

David Schweikert, Candidate for United States Congressional District 5, will be speaking at this event. David was the former Maricopa County Treasurer and a resident of Fountain Hills, AZ. Schweikert received his MBA from the ASU W.P. Carey Executive Program and also holds a BA from the ASU School of Business.

Mayor Vernon Parker, former Gubernatorial Candidate and now running for United States Congressional District 3 will address our organization. When Mayor Parker ran for the Paradise Valley Town Council he received more votes than anyone in the history of the town with 67% of the vote. Mayor Parker received his Juris Doctorate degree from Georgetown University Law Center, in Washington, D.C. where he served as Editor in Chief of the Georgetown American Criminal Law Review.

Also speaking at this free event is former Unites States Congressman Barry Goldwater, Jr. Barry is also author of “Pure Goldwater,” served as a U.S. Congressman from 1969-1983, and is a regular member of Politics on the Rocks.

We look forward to seeing everyone at one of our most important events of the year on Thursday, February 4th 6:00 PM at the Montelucia Resort!

    Politics On The Rocks.
    Well, in an age where substance abuse gets a lot of attention and DUI laws are strict, there is something about the “on the rocks” connotation that seems to be just a bad ad for Republicans.
    Perhaps, yuppie/DINK beer fest at uptown Scottsdale bar is what this really is – not necessarily the matching clean cut, pro-life, conservative image that is being touted by the state GOP.
    What is the Democrat version? Politics and fruit juice, with some non-greenhouse gas brunch line?
    I, for one, say let’s bring back the days of Burton Barr where a lot of the business was done at a card game above a bar off Van Buren near the State Capitol.
    Until then, let’s hope all GOP members attending are drinking 7 without the 7 or Coke straight up – unless they have a Libertarian as a designated driver.

  2. Claen Cut? says

    PCbutnotPC you say “The clean cut image the State GOP touts?” If clean cut means the $300,000 in money landering or missing $50,000 the State GOP mysteriously lost, then you can count me out.

  3. Mike Kelton says

    Is Grover supporting these candidates? That would be a big deal.
