Meeting Tomorrow at Skybox Restaurant & Other Upcoming Events

Greetings fellow YRs,

I just wanted to update everybody on an exciting week coming up for the Pima County Young Republicans. So, here's the list of what's going on this week with the Pima County Young Republican Club:

Tomorrow - Monday, February 20:

Our monthly meeting at Skybox Restaurant on the northeast corner of River and Craycroft. Our speakers will include candidates running for the Pima County Board of Supervisors in District 1: Ally Miller; Stuart McDaniel; and State Rep. Vic Williams (if he's able to make it down from his duties at the State Legislature in Phoenix). We will be having a social hour starting at 6:30 and our meeting will start at 7 pm. 

Wednesday, February 22: 

The Tucson Tea Party has a big rally with Republican Presidential candidate and former US Senator Rick Santorum. The event with Senator Santorum will be held at the Sabbar Shrine Center at 450 S Tucson Blvd.

Senator Santorum

Doors to the event will open at 10 am. In an earlier email I gave the wrong start time, so notice the time change. It is still strongly recommended that people come early as seating is limited. The event runs until 1:30 pm. More information on this event can be found at the Tucson Tea Party website.


Later in the evening on Wednesday, the Pima YRs will be meeting at the home of Pima YR Vice Chair Mike Cole for a Republican Presidential Primary Debate Watching Party. This will be the only Presidential Primary debate held in Arizona in anticipation to our Republican Primary on Tuesday, February 28. It also appears that this will be the final primary debate for 2012. Mike Cole's address is 8138 N Streamside Ave, Tucson, AZ 85741 for those who want to go and need directions.

The debate starts at 6 pm, so it is recommended that people arrive around 5:30 to get good seats.

Friday, February 24:

Join the Pima County Young Republican Club as we support our local hockey team play against our arch rivals. Arizona Wildcat Hockey goes up against the evil ASU Scum Devils this coming weekend.

Friday's game starts at 7:30, so for Young Republicans who want to join us and get tickets together, please be at the Tucson Convention Center ticket office no later than 7 pm. For more information on the Icecats, go to


Thank you for all of your time and support. I hope to see you tomorrow.

Next YR meeting February 20th 7 pm at Skybox Restaurant

I want to invite everybody out to our next meeting, Monday, February 20, 2012 at Skybox Restaurant. We will be having social hour starting at 6:30 pm & our meeting will begin at 7 pm. We have three candidates for Pima County Supervisor in District 1 who will be speaking with us: Ally Miller; Stuart McDaniel; and State Rep. Vic Williams. Mike Hellon is also running but has let me know that he won’t be able to attend this meeting. We hope to see as many people there as possible to support these fine candidates for the Pima County Board of Supervisors.

Hi everybody,

For those of you who don't know, my name is Tyler Mott & I was just elected as the new Chairman of the Pima County Young Republican Club during our January 10th meeting. I am honored by this opportunity & strongly believe that this will be a great year for Republicans in Arizona & nationally. The other club members elected to help lead our club are Michael Cole as Vice Chairman, Absalom Hall as Treasurer, and Kevin Hartung as Secretary.

We have exciting plans for this coming Election year & we have a lot of work to do. With a Presidential Election, an election for US Senate, a number of Congressional seats up for grabs, new State Legislative Districts to fight for, and a number of county and other elections, our candidates need as much help as we can give them. It's going to take a lot of work, and the Pima County YRs plan to have a very busy year that will allow for our members to actively engage in this election cycle.

We are starting things very early this year due to the tragic events of last year's shooting in Tucson that killed 6 innocent people and wounded 19 others including the critical injuries suffered by Congressman Gabrielle Giffords. Rep. Giffords has decided to step aside to focus on her recovery. We hope the best for her and her family and pray that she can fully recover. The effects of that madman's rampage will be felt here for a very, very long time. Rep. Giffords' resignation means that we will have an early Special Election to replace her in Congress.

The YRs will be inviting the Republican candidates for Congressional District 8 the opportunity to share their positions with our members, and we hope that they will all be able to join us at one of our upcoming meetings. I will get you all more details as I have them.

We had invited former State Senate President Russell Pearce to speak at our January meeting, but he had unforeseen events that forced him to have to reschedule. Senator Pearce is tentatively slated to be our main invited speaker at our February 20th meeting. I will be getting all of the details out in the next couple days for everyone.

On a final note, I encourage everyone to come back here to our blog & to visit our website often to be able to see updates from the club. We will be updating both of these very soon & as often as possible.

Thank you once again for your support, and I look forward to serving all of you.
