From now through the first week in September our members will be holding petition-signing events for important referendums in the 2022 election. Please look for these opportunities to sign, and support democracy.
If you're not convinced otherwise yet, check this out. Sign more people on to the Move to Amend petition by downloading and printing this petition. The more petition-signers from the district the better. Let's BLUNT CORPORATE POWER!
Do you ever ask "What can I do to help the political situation?" You can be an important agent in making the change you want to see. Help with voter registration, absentee ballot access, and electing Democrats.
The 2020 Gallup Arizona Survey finds the state at an important juncture. Since the previous survey in 2009, the state has experienced tremendous changes, bringing unique challenges and opportunities.
The Democrats of Casa Grande will be taking on a well-traveled section of Jimmy Kerr Blvd. when the weather permits. You can be a part of this effort to help keep our community clean. Join us!
First I would like to thank Donald Hunt Sr. for all the hard work he put in as Chair of the Pinal County Democratic Party. As Chair, Don helped develop our strategic plan, make changes to our bylaws, bring new voices to committees, and establish a line of succession so the next Chair would not face the same set of circumstances he did.
With Don’s resignation as Chair, just like every volunteer, PC, and member takes a step forward to become a leader, I now take another step forward like those that came before me and those that will follow me.
As I take this step forward, I would like to take a few moments to introduce myself to those that do not know much about me.
I am a transplanted Texan who has lived in Pinal County since 1993. My wife and I chose to raise our two children here and create a life like many others that live in our county. Like most residents of the county, I have worked in various fields of employment - from small business owner and retail regional manager to working within a corporate HR infrastructure. I do not have a degree in political science or public relations hanging on the wall of my home, nor do I have a long list of political accomplishments, but I have been an advocate for abused women, abused animals and LBGTQ related issues for decades.
I understand the hardships rural communities face like the lack of medical care facilities, education, living in a food desert, and what it is like to live in a community where the only job in town is specific industry-driven, like our copper corridor area. I know what it is like to have to drive 30 miles to the nearest rural hospital, attend schools with leaky roofs, and be dependent on getting basic food staples from the local convenience store. I know these things because I have personally lived them.
My rural upbringing, varied employment history, activism and life experience have not only given me the ability to understand the issues that many rural communities face but also the know how needed to communicate that effectively to others, whether they are farmers or CEOs, in a way that they don’t just understand them but can personally relate to them.
As individuals we can make change, but as a team we can have a profound effect not just on our lives but the on the lives of every person that lives within Pinal County. It is going to take all of us working together to reach the goals we all have for the county and to address the local issues that matter to our neighborhoods, cities, and towns. Hope and passion are building blocks; because if we can give people hope, the passion that it creates will only drive us forward to build the team I know we can become.
As a team, let's create a little hope and let the passion we generate drive us towards our ultimate goal - Turning Pinal County Blue.
Chair, Pinal County Democratic Party
Please email or call:
email@example.com or 520-251-8247 if you would like to attend this online meeting of the Democrats of Casa Grande.
The Democrats of Casa Grande is a local club made up of everyday people living in the immediate Casa Grande area and across Pinal County, AZ. We are committed to getting Democrats elected to office. Our meetings are designed to provide information by featuring interesting speakers on a wide variety of timely issuues. In addition to our monthly meetings, we invite members to participate in activities and projects designed to meet our goal of meeting other Democrats and getting Democratic candidates elected.
Our goals are simple: to demonstrate the values upon which our nation was founded and to elect people who will do the same; to work toward maintaining and enhancing a good public education system; to ensure equal rights for all people; to promote justice and uphold the Arizona Constitution and the Constitution of the United States of America; to help those candidates who express the desire to serve our communities and state and who share these values and goals; and to uphold the values of the Democratic Party.
In addition to meetings, speakers, and social activities, we pay close attention to state politics. With the federal government polarized into gridlock, state politics is that much more important. State lawmakers are more accessible and we can use that to our advantage. We The People have safeguards: the right to overturn bad laws through public vote, the right to recall lawmakers who aren't serving us, and the right to make our own laws via initiative. This right is constantly being undermined by the Republican Party.
Your contribution and/or club dues makes it possible to obtain campaign materials and get the supplies and services we need to get our message out. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT! Every little bit helps! (Annual dues are only $20 but any amount is appreciated.)
