There has been a whirlwind of political and community events in recent months.
It has been great meeting and talking with so many of you who have been out and about at Democrats of Greater Tucson meetings, LD9 meetings, Arizona List events, the Tanque Verde Democrats Women Candidates Forum, the St. Patrick’s Day Democratic Party Party, and, of course, at Give Me $5 House Parties in February, Marc, and today. (Check out the photo albums on my Facebook page here.)
April and May will be just as busy, with two more house parties, several canvassing days, and some events.
I have two more Give Me $5 Meet the Candidate House Parties coming up. The purpose of these house parties is to meet residents of LD9 and share my message about economic reform and public banking; equality and paycheck fairness; and refocusing the War of Drugs to target opiates. Also… of course, I hope party attendees will sign my nominating petition and make a $5 Clean Elections Contribution. (If you cannot attend, you can watch some of my speeches on my YouTube Channel and sign my petition online here and make a Clean Elections Contribution to me here.)
All of these events are also listed on my Facebook page.
