The Coconino County Democratic Party is one of the 15 county organizations of the Arizona Democratic Party (ADP). The ADP is an arm of the National Democratic Party. We are governed by Title 16 of the Arizona Revised Statutes and by our by-laws.
Anyone who registers to vote as a Democrat is a member of the Democratic Party. To become active in the governance and work of the Party, please contact us. We are actively recruiting precinct committee persons and volunteers for the 2020 Election.
Coconino County is part of Congressional District 1. Arizona Legislative Districts 6 and 7 each include parts of Coconino County. We work with other County Parties which are also part of those jurisdictions to elect candidates of mutual interest. These counties include Yavapai, Navajo and Gila counties for LD 6 and Navajo and Apache counties for LD 7. Our goal is to elect Democratic candidates in all of these jurisdictions, in the cities and towns within them, in all statewide races, and for the Presidency in 2020. Until after the primary elections, the party remains neutral among Democratic candidates absent extraordinary circumstances.
Every two years, the County Party’s elected precinct committee men and women vote to elect the Executive Committee of the Party and vote for representatives to the Arizona Democratic Party. In the January 2019 election, the following persons were elected to serve for the 2019-2020 election cycle:
Shannah Redmon – Chairman
Ann Heitland – 1st Vice Chair – Operations, Fundraising & Communications
Cathy Rutherford – 2nd Vice Chair – PC training & LD6 Coordination
Phil Dudas – Treasurer, Budget & Data
