The Citizens Tax Committee (CTC) is honored to announce that Dr. Lyle Rapacki, PhD., a nationally recognized intelligence and security analyst and host of Arizona Today, will speak at their upcoming meeting, this Wednesday, May 12th, at 1pm, at the Rowle P. Simmons Adult Center, 1280 E Rosser Street, in Prescott. The Citizens Tax Committee meets on the second Wednesday of each month. Their meetings are free and open to the public. An RSVP is not required.
Dr. Rapacki is well known to local conservatives and civic activists as the host of Arizona Today, a videocast featuring commentary and interviews with leading political figures in Arizona, which is broadcast on Prescott eNews. Dr. Rapacki is also the founder and Chairman of the Yavapai Patriots, which meets monthly in the Marina Room of the Hassayampa Inn in Prescott.
Recent topics on Arizona Today, have focused on the Arizona election recount. Dr. Rapacki has been tasked by Doug Logan, President of Cyber Ninjas, to assist with logistics and volunteer recruitment associated with the recount. Cyber Ninjas is under contract to the Arizona State Senate to conduct an audit of 2.1 million Maricopa County ballots to determine if there have been meaningful irregularities or evidence of voter fraud. He will update the Citizens Tax Committee with the status of the recount and discuss the implications for future elections if fraud is identified.
Mr. Brandon Montoya, candidate for the Prescott City Council has also been invited to speak. Mr. Montoya is a local businessman and long time resident who is raising his family in Prescott. He has entered the race for city council out of a concern that the current administration of the city is out of step with the voters. He states, “….as a citizen, I recognize that when the voices of Prescott’s residents aren’t being heard, it is time for a change.” His priorities include safeguarding Prescott’s water supply and “smart growth” policies that align with “the values of our hometown.” He supports preserving Prescott’s scenic beauty and has pledged not to accept campaign donations from developers.
Both Dr. Rapacki and Mr. Montoya will stand for questions following their presentations.
The Citizens Tax Committee is one of Prescott’s oldest and most venerable civic organizations. Since its founding in 1977, it has served as a taxpayer advocate, promoted fiscal accountability in local government, and has been a focal point for opposition to wasteful government spending and excessive debt. Over the years, a number of local and state elected officials have been associated with the organization.
The Citizens Tax Committee meets on the second Wednesday of the month at 1pm at the Adult Center, 1280 E Rosser Street, Prescott, Arizona. Members of the public interested in fiscal accountability and learning about the Arizona audit and Mr. Montoya’s vision for the future of Prescott, are cordially invited to attend.
