Democratic Political Action! events are organized by our First Vice-Chair, Harriet Young. These events will happen on the third Thursday of each month at lunchtime (generally starting at 11:30).
Each meeting will feature an informative speaker on a timely topic and the meeting also provides an opportunity for Democrats to come together in a social atmosphere to enjoy each other’s company and talk politics. At the first lunch in 2017, Doug Ballard provided insights into the candidates for National Chair and answered questions about the election process. (Doug is a member of the National Committee as well as a state committeeman.) At the second meeting, Randy Wilson, Editor of the Arizona Daily Sun, spoke on the challenges of covering political news in the current political climate. So far in 2017, we’ve heard from David Garcia, candidate for Governor, and Steve Farley, also candidate for Governor; from January Contreras, candidate for Attorney General; from a political consultant with expertise in LD 6; and from a political scientist with polling expertise.
