The Yavapai County Chapter of Conservatives for a Constitutional Republic (ConCR) will host long-time Yavapai County political figure and former Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett, at their December meeting this Saturday, December 12th, at 11am at the VFW in Prescott Valley. LD1 State Senator and current Senate President Karen Fann has also been invited and indicated she will attend if her schedule permits. As Senate President, Fann is currently dealing with allegations of voter fraud in Arizona’s Presidential election and may be preempted by her senate duties.
Former Arizona Secretary of State and Senate President Ken Bennett is well known to Yavapai County voters. He grew up in Prescott and is a graduate of Prescott High School. He later attended Yavapai Community College before graduating from Arizona State University. His political career began in 1985 when he was elected to the Prescott City Council at the age of 26.
In 1988 Bennett was appointed to the State Board of Education and from 1996 to 1998 served as Board President. In 1998 he was elected to the State Senate where he served four terms, the last two as Senate President from 2003 to 2007. In 2009, he was appointed Arizona Secretary of State when Jan Brewer became Governor.
In 2010 he was elected to the position with 59% of the vote. His campaign for Congress and later for Governor in 2013 and 2018 were not successful. However, he remains active in business and political affairs and continues to have a wide following in Yavapai County.
