Adrianna Eschete is Chief Range Safety Officer, NRA Certified Instructor, The Well Armed Woman Certified Instructor, The Well Armed Woman Louisiana State Leader, Leader of the Bayou Region Chapter of The Well Armed Woman, and a LSP Approved CHL Instructor.
In her own words: ” I am a registered architect in the states of Louisiana and Texas, a US Green Building Council LEED Accredited Professional, and certified as a LSUCCC Third Party Plan Reviewer. I am also the wife of Guido, a step-mom to Drew (19), and a mom to Gianna (4). I am a Brazilian/American and speak Portuguese fluently.
My interest in shooting began after meeting my husband. His mother was a gunsmith and a distinguished marksman, as was his older brother. My experience began in the hunting world so that I had something in common with my stepson, who was a member of Terrebonne Parish’s YHEC, competing nationally. I really didn’t expect to like it so much.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, my work led me to places where I felt the need to carry. So, my training began and through that training, I began to search for a platform for woman-to-woman instruction. I found TWAW and decided to start a local chapter. Through leading a large chapter, I have sought more training and education for myself and to share with our members.
Over the past 3 years, I have had the joy of educating women and men of all ages in safely handling firearms. I have enjoyed many travel opportunities and meeting many new people through the shooting sports. I have also seen so many families bond through enjoying the shooting sports and watched many people gain self-confidence through challenging their skills individually and with one another. Recently, I had the pleasure of co-hosting a regional TWAW event with Kim Condon in Mississippi which included members from chapters of 5 states. The experience was unforgettable!
When introduced to The DC Project, I thought it was a great opportunity to connect with fellow firearm enthusiasts and work together with them to inform our federal legislators of our cause. For me, education is the key to safe firearm handling as well as preserving the sport for generations to come.”
AZ Republican Party Chairman Robert Graham
Graham was elected Chairman of the Arizona Republican Party in January 2013 and reelected in 2015. He is responsible for leading the state’s GOP initiatives while overseeing and growing a well-funded and organized party. On his watch in the most recent election, Republicans won every statewide elected office and majorities in the Legislature, and now hold a majority in our GOP congressional delegation. While GOP has traditionally stood for “Grand Old Party”, Chairman Graham refers to the GOP as the Great Opportunity Party.
Graham’s accomplishments have been recognized by AZ Business Magazine as Top Entrepreneur, by Boomer Market Advisor magazine as Advisor of the Year, and recently Forbes magazine. He earned a Masters in Business Administration from Thunderbird School of Global Management, and a Bachelor’s in Global Business Management and Finance from ASU.
Graham brought transformational changes to the AZGOP to help the conservative cause at every level. He created a War Room at the HQ, where staff and volunteers overwhelmed opponents using social media and GOTV, and set up a dozen Victory offices which used world-class data and communications tools to help our candidates win. He led fundraising and outreach which successfully brought the GOP message to many ethnic groups and voters statewide, and the GOP now holds a five percent voter registration advantage. Republican voters now outnumber both independents and Democrats in Arizona.

J. Thomas “Tom” Rompel: Speaker, Author, and Constitutional Conservative
After the election of Barrack Hussain Obama, J. Thomas Rompel was involved in a business that dealt with military and law enforcement both at the local and federal level including the Border Patrol in the Tucson Sector. As a direct result of regular contact over time with the on the ground he couldn’t help but notice a growing trend of the federal government failing in their duty to protect the citizens against enemies both foreign and domestic. Because of this he was inspired to write his action/thriller and Amazon Best Seller, Citizen Warrior The 4th Branch.
Tom Rompel is action-oriented. He writes about citizens who do what is needed to combat terrorism. He will listen to and talk with your audience about why the U.S. must be on the Conservative track for the safety and future of our country.
Rompel comes to his conservative values the old-fashioned way – he worked for them. Born and raised in the Chicago area, he moved to Tucson at the beginning of his sophomore year in high school. He owned and operated a number of successful companies since the mid 70’s. Along with his other businesses in the mid 80’s Tom launched a business coaching practice working with the owners of small and medium size companies.
After 9/11, Tom was involved in a business that dealt with the U.S. military and law enforcement both at the local and federal levels which included
Border Patrol agents in the Tucson Sector. As a direct result of this regular contact with different law enforcement agencies over time, he observed a growing trend in the United States – the federal government failing in their duty to protect citizens against enemies both foreign and domestic.
As a speaker, Rompel inspires the desire to make a personal difference in the way the U.S. is run. He encourages action, participation in local and national efforts, and leadership. His presentations are lively, informative and guaranteed to be thought provoking.
Rompel’s book, Citizen Warrior – The 4th Branch (2016), is an Amazon Best Seller. Set on the Arizona border, in Dearborn, MI and Chicago, this thriller follows a concerned U.S. citizen who befriends a retired Delta Force colonel. Together they move to quash an ISIS-type attack at a Tucson shopping mall. The attack takes place on the day after Thanksgiving, Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year. Bonded by this experience, they train together and end up taking on larger foes – a dangerous combination of Mexican cartel and Islamic extremists who are set on exploding a dirty bomb.
“…one of the most spellbinding books I have read in a very long time. You feel the gripping fear, the rush of adrenaline and the chest bursting pride throughout the entire book.” Amazon review
The appealing theme of Citizen Warriors –
The 4th Branch is that the protagonists are
civilians who see a need to rise up and take matters into their own hands – and do it.
“I loved the book and couldn’t put it down. An action thriller about what is currently going on in our country. Citizens of America need to make this a must read as it will put a chill down your spine!” Amazon review
Rompel is currently working on the second book of the series, Citizen Warrior – The List, due out in 2017.
