By Leslie Mikucki | Navajo Canyon Republican Women Federated

Carl DeMaio will speak about fiscal reform for government at the June 12 meeting of the Navajo Canyon Republican Women (NCRWF). The former San Diego City Council member currently hosts his own daily radio show on Newsradio 600 KOGO.

DeMaio maintains that voters deserve fiscal accountability from elected officials and recently worked to get the Gas Tax Repeal on the ballot for November because he believes the tax is inadequate to offset the state’s staggering debt.

DeMaio is founder of the Performance Institute, a government reform think tank that serves to guard against misuse of government by demanding transparency of government functions and accountability for its fiscal activities. He offers wide-ranging proposals from performance-based budgeting accountability to the opening of government services to competition.

The NCRWF June 12 meeting will take place at The Brigantine Restaurant in La Mesa. Check-in time for the 11 a.m. meeting is 10:30 a.m. A full-course lunch will be served at noon with DeMaio’s talk at 12:30 p.m. Cost of lunch is $25 and reservations are required. RSVP (with “luncheon RSVP” in the subject line) to or call Marjie at 619-990-2791.

NCRWF mourns the passing of Barbara Bush

The recent passing of former first lady Barbara Bush reminded many of the commitment she made to public life. When asked, Mrs. Bush explained that during her 92 years, her devotion to Christian faith and love of her family sustained her. Her charity work includes education reform by fostering literacy. Mamie Eisenhower, Barbara Bush and Laura Bush are former first ladies who supported literacy during their terms.

NCRWF supports literacy each year by donating books to local libraries. This year, Terry Casey donated books on science, history, and education to Kathryn Johnson, manager of the Allied Gardens Benjamin Branch Library on behalf of NCRWF.

New citizens

On April 18, several members of NCRWF set up booths at the San Diego Civic Center for the New Citizen ceremonies. Twenty-five newly sworn-in citizens also became members of the Republican Party due to efforts made by Kat Culkin (president of NCRWF), Pat Boerner, Mary Lewis, Nancy Murnahan and Leslie Mikucki representing NCRWF voter registration.
