At its April 12 meeting, Republican Women of Prescott hosted guest speaker Arizona Treasurer Jeff DeWit and candidates for Arizona Senate.
DeWit’s topic was Proposition 123, giving a brief history as well as details of the proposition. He gave strong opinions on why he is opposed to this education initiative. A letter from Dr. Billie Orr was presented offering the pro argument to Proposition 123.
Following the question-and-answer session, Senatorial candidates Alex Meluskey, Clair Van Steenwyk and Dr. Kelli Ward responded to the question: “Why are you the best candidate for the Senate?” Each candidate was given five minutes to respond. Audience questions were then put to all three candidates.
