Yavapai Republican Men’s Forum – Meet Your 2022 Candidates!

Judy Burges – LD1 Candidate for Arizona State House of Representatives

I like to call myself a true unapologetic “Constitutional Conservative” throughout my fifteen years of service in the legislature.  I am a “We the People” Christian candidate that has a proven history supporting Constitutional freedoms such as: the 2nd Amendment, less government, lower taxes, border security, State sovereignty, free speech, school choice, pro-family values, and one’s right-to-life.

I have chaired, vice chaired or been a member of every committee with the exception of education.

Looking forward to returning to the House of Representatives where I started in 2005.  Except, there is a lot more experience to draw from when it comes to issues.

This has been a very interesting year and more than ever it is essential to elect an individual who cannot be bought and works shoulder to shoulder with her constituents.  We must push back against this federal government who has threatened every aspect of our culture as we know it.  If we fail, our way of life will no longer exist as we know it.

Bob Lettieri is running for Treasurer of Arizona. After four years serving as your AZ GOP Treasurer, achieving significant turnaround in FEC compliance, accountability, transparency and integrity in reporting and business operations, Bob Lettieri has earned the trust of fellow Republicans across Arizona.

Elected Treasurer of the Party in January 2017, Bob served with distinction under both the Lines Chairmanship and the first term of Kelli Ward’s Chairmanship. He successfully negotiated settling fines and sanctions the State Party faced with the Federal Elections Commission, stemming from the 2014 and 2016 election cycles.

In addition to his work at the AZ GOP, Bob has served as a panelist with The Madison Coalition, a conservative advocacy group headquartered in Washington D.C.

Bob Is an experienced financial executive. The treasurer is responsible for investing your money and for the safekeeping of all securities acquired by the treasurer under this section. My background and experience fit directly into this requirement.

· One of the benchmarks of my career is raising over $100 million in the capital markets. Some of these funding’s required me to invest the bulk of the money with major banks that offer trust fund management. Before the decision to invest was made I presented to the Board of Directs several options of investments that assured to the highest degree safety and liquidity of the investor’s money.

Bob has chosen to run for Arizona State Treasurer as a Clean Election Candidate believing that $5 contributions represents the choice of We The People.
