Our special guest speaker this month is Jeff Mixon from Americans for Prosperity.  AFP-NC is part of the nation’s premier grassroots organization committed to advancing every individual’s right to economic freedom and opportunity. AFP-NC believes reducing the size and scope of government is the best safeguard to ensuring individual productivity and prosperity. AFP-NC educates and engages citizen leaders in support of restraining local, state and federal government growth, and returning government to its constitutional limit. AFP-NC also actively supports legislation that expands economic freedom.

A native of Durham, Jeff Mixon is a public policy professional and an alumnus of North Carolina Central University.  He is a veteran of the U.S. Navy, with duty in the Submarine Force and Marine Corps.  He is an Eagle Scout and currently serves as a member of the Mawat District Committee and a Merit Badge Counselor for the Boy Scouts of America.

He has become a recognized policy expert on the issues of crime, election law, government spending and the second amendment and has appeared in the national media on CNBC and Salon.com. He can be heard regularly on local TV and talk radio around the state. He is a regular columnist for the Lincoln Tribune. Jeff is also a constitutional educator as a Fellow of the Liberty & Law Institute. Jeff has taught classes to hundreds of students at the high school and collegiate level on the US Constitution and Political Management.

Jeff  has been a Congressional staff member and was a director for the Civitas Institute before joining AFP.  Jeff developed a connection with eastern Wake County when he ran the campaign for the 13th Congressional District candidate, Vernon Robinson.  His efforts early on helped pave the way for us to finally get rid of Brad Miller!

We are very fortunate to have Jeff share his expertise on the events of the day and get his take on how the push toward responsible government is going here in North Carolina.
