Arizona Republican Party Activists To Participate in Grassroots Day at the State Capitol
PHOENIX – On February 12, 2013 the Arizona Republican Party’s locally-elected grassroots leaders will participate in “Precinct Committeeman Day” at the State Capitol in Phoenix to recognize the contributions made by Republican volunteers.
“Our state party is over a million strong and growing, and this event is a wonderful opportunity to recognize the contribution our volunteers have made,” said Robert Graham, Chairman of the Arizona Republican Party. ”It’s not just the power of our conservative ideas that led to Republican victories throughout the state, our success depends on our many volunteers carrying that message within their communities.”
The event is being sponsored by Arizona Conservative Educators, an organization dedicated to school choice and student achievement and is open to Arizona Republican Party Precinct Committeemen, their guests, and Republican Club members. The Maricopa County Republican Party and the Pachyderm Coalition are co-sponsoring the event.
Meetings with legislators (by prior appointment) will begin at 9:00 am with lunch at 11:30 am in the Rose Garden for the first 1,000 participants who RSVP here. At 1:00 pm participants will be recognized in the House Gallery followed by recognition in the Senate Gallery at 1:30 pm. Legislator group meetings (by prior appointment) will resume at 2:00 pm.
The Party’s Precinct Committeemen (PC’s) are the backbone of the state party and are elected in each of Arizona’s 1,667 local precincts during the statewide primary election every two years. PC’s in each of Arizona’s 30 legislative districts meet monthly to visit with their elected officials, organize with other volunteers, and campaign in support of Republican candidates.
