Our Nation’s Founding Principles


Prof. Kristen Morrell Rutter and Senator Mike Morrell

Dear Friends and Neighbors, 
During this COVID-19 Outbreak Season, when many families are adjusting to providing education at home, my office has collected resources and tools that we hope might be useful to navigate these next several weeks. You can access them here. 

In addition, I invite you and your family, as well as other families you may know with middle school or high school students (or anyone else who might be interested) to listen in to a discussion about our Nation’s Founding Principles, why they still resonate today, and their connection to our legislative process.

Joining me for this event will be Kristen Morrell Rutter. Professor Kristen Morrell Rutter: Michael and Joan Morrell’s daughter, resides in Phoenix, Arizona with husband Jeff Rutter and four children. Professor Rutter is a Cal State Fullerton undergraduate in Political Science, with a Graduate of Claremont University Masters Degree in Political Philosophy.  Currently, she is Adjunct professor at Arizona Christian University since Fall 2013. 

I’m looking forward to You meeting with us on The Call:
