Yavapai Republican Men’s Forum Luncheon – 2022 Arizona Ballot Initiatives

The Yavapai Republican Men’s Forum September 12th luncheon’s speaker will discuss the Arizona Ballot Initiatives for the November General election.

The Arizona Constitution provides for ballot initiatives that can be placed on the General Election Ballot by the AZ Legislature or by the people. In 2022, there will be up to 11 ballot initiatives for voters to decide.

While voter ballot decisions are a valuable provision in our state constitution, they are being weaponized by well-funded, far-left organizations. In particular, the proposed AZ Fair Elections Act is one such initiative. The name sounds nice, but it is anything but that. This ballot initiative is Nancy Pelosi’s HR1 tailored for Arizona and will gut most election laws in our state. It must be defeated.

One of our speakers, Brad Newman, President of the Desert Mountain Breakfast Club in Scottsdale, will cover this and other ballot initiatives expected on the November Ballot. Some are positive while others are not. It will be important for all of us to mobilize electorate through our networks to win this battle.

Brad has been a strong conservative resident of Arizona since early 2020. He retired to Scottsdale after a 30-year corporate career leading commercial programs to develop and launch various medical device, hospital, and pharmaceutical products. Having lived in Chicago for one-half of his career, he has seen how liberal policies have insidiously destroyed Illinois – once the economic gem of the Midwest. As president of Desert Mountain Breakfast Club, he works closely with Bob Hathorne leading the club to identify, develop, and elect conservative candidates to keep Arizona RED – preventing a disastrous liberal-driven decline like that in Illinois.

Brad grew up in Terre Haute, Indiana. He has an undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology and a Masters of Business Administration from Butler University.

Bob Hathorne, Founder of the Desert Mountain Breakfast Club of Scottsdale, will also be speaking,

For many years, Bob Hathorne has been deeply engaged in Arizona conservative politics advising and coaching candidates on the most important aspect of elections – winning. He has deep knowledge and insights into our constitutional republic and how the left is trying to destroy it. He is the founder of the Desert Mountain Breakfast Club and grown this group to significantly influence conservative voting across the Northeast Valley of Phoenix. Bob’s biggest battle came in 2016 to convince the AZ Legislature to defeat the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. This law would have given Arizona’s electoral votes to the winner of the National Popular Vote, not the winner of the Arizona Popular Vote. He won and our state’s electoral sovereignty has been preserved.

Following graduation from the University of Denver and a stint in the U.S. Army, Bob spent 18 years in the industrial publishing industry and became publisher of the company’s leading publications.  Later, Bob joined a partnership with a college friend and started a flex-o-graphic printing company which they owned for 13 years. In return for their hard work, they received an offer they couldn’t refuse… and, as they say, the rest is history.
