The Yavapai County Chapter of Conservatives for a Constitutional Republic will host Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb at their upcoming meeting this Saturday, August 22nd, at the VFW in Prescott Valley. Earlier this year, Sheriff Lamb received wide publicity for his outspoken support for Second Amendment Sanctuary Resolutions and opposition to so-called Red Flag Laws that limit the due process rights of gun owners.
Sheriff Lamb took office as Pinal County Sheriff in January 2017. Pinal County borders Maricopa County to the south and is traversed by the 1-10 corridor, a key route for drug smuggling and human trafficking in Arizona. Pinal County participates in the federal government’s 287g program which allows the Sheriff’s Office to hold undocumented aliens for up to 48 hours to allow ICE time to assume custody and initiate deportation proceedings.
Also speaking at the Saturday meeting is Corporation Commission candidate Jim O’Connor, who waged a successful write-in campaign to secure one of three places on the Republican slate for the Arizona Corporation Commission.
Conservatives for a Constitutional Republic is a group of conservative activists dedicated to defending and promoting the values of representative government and personal freedom as set forth in the U.S. Constitution. The group is a private organization and is not affiliated with any political party. However, most members are registered Republicans or conservative leaning Independents who are civically engaged or who are current or former elected officials or candidates for office.
ConCR has monthly meetings at the VFW in Prescott Valley. Doors will open for the August 22nd meeting at 11:15 am, with lunch available from the VFW menu. The meeting will be called to order at 11:30 am. Recent speakers include Congressman Paul Gosar and Andy Biggs, former Senate Candidate Daniel McCarthy, former Senate President Russell Pearce, Rep Elect Wendy Rogers, and other conservative candidates for state and county offices.
ConCR is a membership organization. However, in view of the upcoming election and the issues expected to be addressed by the speakers, this meeting will be open to the general public. Admission is free but seating is limited. An RSVP is requested. ConCR President, Jim Dutton advises that “all good conservatives looking for an organization that shares their values are invited to attend.” The VFW is located at 2375 N 5th Street in Prescott Valley. RSVPs should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
