AZ DEMS HALL OF FAME INDUCTEE - RIVKO KNOX



Please join us in congratulating LD2 Precinct Committee and State Committee Member, Rivko Knox, for being inducted into the Arizona Democratic Party Hall of Fame on Friday, January 27th.

Rivko was recognized for her extraordinary dedication and service to the Arizona Democratic Party.


She continues to lead the way and encourage the hearts of her community in our fight to protect democracy. Her commitment to improving the lives of all Arizonans is unmatched.


Rivko - Congratulations on being inducted into the Hall of Fame!


NEED TO INCREASE AFFINITY FOR THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY



At the recent LD Chair's Retreat, DNC Member Luis Heredia impressed upon us the need to increase our neighbors' affinity for the Democratic Party.


And he further reinforced the need to make that happen at the most local level. This means one-on-one, or small-group conversations. Real talk about real issues.


Imagine if every person reading this newsletter were to recruit one Precinct Committeeperson by the end of next month. Think about how many new conversations could be had. And think about the impact this could make on the outcome of the 2024 election.


To assist your conversations, here is some more information about the key responsibilities of a Democratic Precinct Committee Member:


  • Stay informed about local/national issues and candidates.
  • Be an advocate for voter registration and voting rights.
  • Build relationships with Democrats in your precinct.
  • Educate voters in your precinct about the Democratic Party, its nominees, and issues.
  • Attend legislative district monthly meetings.
  • Attend MCDP & ADP Meetings.


The next deadline to submit PC appointments is February 6th.


If you would like to be a PC, please make sure to attend our next meeting in February or reach out to LD2 Chair Meg Patel at ld2@maricopadems.org.

DONATE TO LD2 AND WIN A GIFT CARD!


If you’re reading this newsletter, you know the importance of voting in all elections and understand the process. However, not all of our LD2 neighbors do, so one of the uses of our funds is for the purpose of creating literature and mailers to help educate the voters of LD2 about the importance of elections – especially down ballot local races. Consider becoming a recurring donor to LD2 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 $20.23 for LD2 in 2023?
