With Guest Speaker

Chad Mayes

Chad Mayes was first elected to the Assembly in November 2014.  He represents our 42nd District in California.

Mayes is a dynamic and hard-working leader; and is a “governing conservative”.   He looks for down to earth policy solutions that will better the lives of Californians and ensure that the State remains a global leader. 

Mayes negotiates with both sides of the aisle - the Governor and legislative Democrats on major policy and fiscal issues.  He has come under fire for doing it.   
Chad is involved in many policy issues however, he is most passionate about housing, transportation and reducing poverty through education, job creation, and economic expansion. He regularly travels up and down the state meeting with a wide variety of stakeholders, groups and businesses to better understand issues and build consensus for key policies.
Chad believes that civic engagement cannot begin until the public understands what its government is doing.  He is a strong advocate for open government, local control and fiscal responsibility. 

Mayes is a graduate of Liberty University, and is a lifelong resident of Yucca Valley.

Plan to attend this luncheon and learn what is really happening in Sacramento.   Please bring a friend.

Welcome back to the Desert.

The long hot summer is almost over. Cooler temperatures do not mean the main stream media or progressives have cooled on their constant and varied attacks on President Trump. Mueller is still probing and distraction after distraction have been thrown in the President's path to slow his progress, with hopes to ultimately STOP him. Thankfully, he is steadfast in his quest to "Make America Great Again" holding campaign rallies in key states to help with Republican's in primary elections. To enthusiastic crowds, he motivates the base to elect Republican candidates to run in the midterm elections.

President Trump has been busy. N. Korea is returning prisoners, as well as, remains from the Korean War to families who can finally lay their loved ones to rest. Talks continue to end their nuclear program. Unemployment, especially for Blacks and Hispanics is at an all time low. The GDP is over 4% and the unemployment rate is at it's lowest in decades. The tax cuts are helping small business owners and the trade deficit is no longer being ignored.

President Trump's approval rating is at its highest at 50%. The 'Deep State' is being exposed for the corruption that would never have come to light if Hillary had been elected. Many long time democrats are part of a growing 'Walk Away' movement that exposes the truths about an oppressive party that tells them how to think and who to vote for.

With patriotism and love for this country growing, a threat of a 'Blue Wave' is shrinking. The upcoming election will be one of the most important in our lifetime. We must elect good Republican, conservative voices to insure that President Trump's agenda can grow and prosper in this great country.

Mary Carter, President

Your Sunshine Chairman is requesting that you keep her informed of any and all occasions that need to be acknowledged by a card. Such things as births, deaths, marriages, health issues, happy and sad, all deserve recognition. If I don't hear from you, someone who could use a bit of cheering up would be overlooked. Let's don't let that happen. Just drop me a line or email me.

Many thanks,
