Wednesday, July 20th at 6:30PM

Our next in-person hybrid meeting will be this Wednesday, July 20th at 6:30pm at Paradise Valley Community College (PVCC) Conference Center (parking lot at: 32nd St and Grovers). We will meet our fabulous Democratic candidates for Congressional District 1: Adam Metzendorf and Jevin Hodge. Each candidate will share with us what’s going on with their campaign, how you can get involved, and answer your questions. We’ll get a legislative update from our Representative Judy Schwiebert who is running for re-election and AZ Senate candidate Jeanne Casteen. We anticipate having someone from Save Our Schools to explain the new petition pertaining to blocking HB2853.

Please make sure to bring your non-perishable food & pet food to the meeting where we are continuing our food drive collections to the PV Food Bank. We will be doing this at all of our monthly meetings because at LD2 we care about all of our neighbors. Attend early to get your own petition along with signing the petitions for Repealing HB2853, meet your neighbors, talk with candidates, and grab a cookie (but please bring your own non-alcoholic drink). Meeting starts promptly at 6:30pm.

Don’t forget to register for the meeting if you will be listening via Zoom and remember, if you are visiting us for the first time, we are at: 17811 N 32nd St. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone.



Candidate yard signs will be available at the July LD meeting. Want to make phone calls, write postcards, or help with canvassing? Please contact our LD2 Campaign Organizer, Taylor Nelson, who will be able to plug you into the right opportunity where you can get involved; she can be reached at 515-822-4022 or tnelson@azdem.org.

Special highlight of upcoming events:

  • 07/23 – Canvass from 9:30am-noon followed by a Meet the Candidates event
  • 07/26 – An evening with Dr. Hiral Tipirneni

We are excited to provide the opportunity to pre-order LD2 business cards for our PCs at $30/box of 100 cards & name badges at $15/badge using J & R Printing (a Union Printer in Phoenix). While we are working out the payment and processing kinks for ordering these materials from our website, enjoy looking at the cards and badges below. We anticipate providing all of our PCs with the ordering information in time for the monthly meeting.


Remember when Prop 305 was overwhelmingly rejected by the voters in 2018? Unfortunately, the AZ Legislature voted to effectively dismantle public education by passing HB2853 Universal ESA Voucher Expansion. We’ve proven in the past how those of us who believe in properly funding public education can mobilize and do what needs to be done. To that end, we must collect 118,823 valid signatures before September 24, 2022 to stop universal ESA voucher expansion from going into effect. This referendum will then go on the Nov 2024 ballot where AZ voters can reject it once and for all.

At the July LD meeting, we will be bringing this petition for PCs to check out their own petition so that they can collect signatures from their neighbors.

Want to get more involved in the elections process during this election cycle? There are many ways to do so, and we need Dems to fill these roles! 

Maricopa County is in the process of hiring for 2300 temporary positions, from poll workers on election day, to assisting with early voting, to ballot processing after election day, and much more! It's a great way to better understand our voting system, and get paid. APPLY HERE 

MCDP is looking for election observers for the primary and general elections. A new high school program has started, too. Contact our secretary, Rivko Knox, if you are interested.

Share these dates and information with your family and friends. There is so much riding on this election, we need to Get Out the Vote like never before!


If you are distraught by what’s going on in AZ with respect to a woman’s right to choose, then contact www.abortionfundofaz.org if you want to help them out. This group provides direct assistance to people seeking abortion care in AZ. They view the right to abortion as a fundamental human right, essential for equality, health, and dignity.


Can you help us with our social media? Are you a pro with posting to Twitter? What about other social media apps? We are looking for individuals who can help us with Tweeting news & events pertaining to LD2 – can you help us out? You don’t have to be a PC. Do you have a student who needs Community Service hours? Please contact Chair, Janet Wilson at chair@azld2dems.org to get involved.


Human interaction is good for the mind and the soul. I’d like to see us expand our reach by providing different options to engage not only our PCs but the general community with the formation of selected types of LD2 Dems clubs. One particular club which comes to mind is a Book Club. If you are interested in being a member of this club and/or have a recommendation for a different club, please contact Chair, Janet Wilson at chair@azld2dems.org.The only bad ideas are ones which you hold onto yourself and don’t share.



You may wonder, what do we do with these funds? Since this is the first year we’ve been LD2 and now that we have our new logo, we need to create new marketing material. In addition to paying for our new meeting location, during this cycle, we will be making it easier for voters in our district to “get out the vote” (aka: GOTV) by crafting campaign literature. Are you a recurring donor to LD2? If not, it’s fast and easy and you will be automatically entered to win a gift card for your recurring donation? 

Anyone can donate - you don’t have to live in LD2. How about $22 for LD2 in 2022?

If you have any questions, please contact LD2 Treasurer Truly Bone at Treasurer@azld2dems.org
