Come to the PRWC October Meeting and find out!
Register early to guarantee a seat!!


President’s Message:

 Can you believe that it is already October? The November election is getting closer and closer. I think that everyone will agree that this has been a most unusual election season. We have held virtual meetings via Zoom and “Go To Meeting” as well as finally being able to resume having a live meeting in September. We have an excellent field of Republican Candidates. At the October meeting we have invited the Scottsdale City Council Candidates who are Republicans to speak as well as Allister Adel, Maricopa County Attorney Candidate. We will also be addressing Prop 208 and the Marijuana Proposition. Even though the Scottsdale Election is non-partisan, we only invite those candidates who are Republicans to speak at our meeting.

I will not be chairing the October Meeting because I will be attending the AzFRW Board of Directors Meeting that is being held the same day as our October meeting. All Club Presidents are automatic members of the Arizona Federation Board of Directors. As members of Paradise Republican Women, you are automatic members of the Arizona Federation and the National Federation of Republican Women. The National Federation was founded in 1938 and the President sits on the Republican National Committee (RNC). At the NFRW Board meetings attendees attend workshops teaching them how to make the clubs in their home states more effective.  They hold their convention every odd year to elect their officers and redefine their mission. I have served on NFRW committees in the past and it is very gratifying to meet and work with Republican Women from around the country. Many of the other state federations and clubs are facing the same issues that we do here in Arizona. As PRWC members you should be receiving e-mails from the Arizona Federation and from the NFRW’s Capitol Connection. If you are not please contact me and we will try to see why you are not. 

As we are nearing the November election, I hope that all of you are doing everything you can to help elect our Republican Slate. That means posting yard signs in your front yard, donating to the candidates and yes, making phone calls. On November 4th, we want to wake up to having a Republican Victory from re-electing President Trump and all of our Republican Candidates, because you did your best to help get them elected.



Barb McMullen, President PRWC

October Agenda:

November Ballot Propositions, Allister Adel, Maricopa County Attorney

Ballot Propositions
Voters will decide Proposition 207, which would legalize marijuana for personal use in Arizona.
In 2016, 51 percent of voters rejected a ballot initiative to legalize marijuana. Andrea Kadar will
speak on Prop. 207
The campaign Invest in Ed is backing a ballot initiative, Proposition 208, to increase the income
tax on income above $250,000 (single filing) or $500,000 (joint filing) and distribute the revenue
to teacher salaries, schools, and education programs. Invest in Ed qualified a similar ballot
initiative in 2018, but the courts removed the proposal from the ballot.
Edith LaFerve will speak on “NO ON Prop 208

The PRWC Board

Caring for America is based on the belief that problems can be solved more effectively through the generosity and combined energies of individuals than through dependency on government programs.  We support UMOM, a local organization that supports our homeless community.

The NFRW established the Caring for America program to energize and encourage states and clubs to actively support and promote at least one existing community service program, or to initiate a new project to fill an existing need in the community.
