"Grassroots Action for Free-Market Policy Victories"
4Tucson is honored to have Tom Jenney as our guest speaker. Tom is Senior Legislative Advisor for the Arizona chapter of Americans for Prosperity, formerly the Arizona Federation of Taxpayers. As director of AFT in 2006, Jenney helped to reduce state income and property taxes, and helped lead the fight to pass Prop 207, the Private Property Rights Protection Act. From 2007 to 2017, Jenney served as Arizona state director of Americans for Prosperity, winning multiple legislative and local government victories on tax policy, privatization, budget reform and worker freedom. In November 2010, Jenney and AFP-Arizona were helpful in passing Prop 106, the Arizona Health Care Freedom Act, and Prop 113, the Save Our Secret Ballot Act. In 2012, AFP-Arizona led the successful fight against the Arizona ObamaCare insurance exchange, and helped in defeating the Prop 204 permanent sales tax increase.
Since 2004, Jenney has overseen the publication of the AFT-AFP “Friend of the Taxpayer” Legislative Scorecard, which is often cited by candidates and their opponents in primary and general election fights. Since 2007, Jenney has also overseen the publication of AFP-Arizona’s Local Government Scorecard, which grades city council members and county supervisors on taxes and spending.
