The Federalist Society Alaska Chapter announced that Grant Starrett, vice president of acquisitions at Lion Real Estate Group, will address the group’s next luncheon gathering on the topic of the Founders, money, the Constitution, and the size of government.
Amidst concerns over the highest inflation rates in decades, the event at the Petroleum Club in Anchorage at noon on Aug. 21 aims to provide a fresh perspective on how the Founders’ views on sound money were enshrined in the Constitution to explicitly limit the scope of government, and how these principles have been warped over time.
Starrett is the president of Nashville Lawyers Chapter of the Federalist Society. He graduated from Stanford University, where he founded its Conservative Society, and later earned his J.D. from Vanderbilt University Law School. During his time at Vanderbilt, he gained experience working for Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC), further shaping his understanding of the dynamics between government, the Constitution, and economic principles.
Starrett’s analyses and writings have been featured in prominent national publications such as the Wall Street Journal, National Review, and The Federalist. His regular book reviews on GrantReadsBooks at Substack showcase his passion for intellectual discourse and exploration of ideas.
Tickets are $10 for members and $20 for nonmembers. Lunch is included. The event is open to the public.
The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies is made up of individuals with conservative and libertarian leanings who have a keen interest in the present condition of the legal system. The organization is established upon the core tenets that the primary purpose of the government is to safeguard individual freedoms, that the division of governmental powers is a fundamental aspect of our Constitution, and that the judiciary’s role is predominantly to interpret the law as it stands, rather than as it ought to be.
The group, active in states across the nation, aims to both raise awareness about these principles and advance their implementation through its various initiatives, which include speaker series.
