Jewish Synagogue Vandalism In Tucson

On June 7th, another sad day for Tucson, the Tucson Chabad Center was vandalized. This was the second temple to be vandalized in Tucson in less than three weeks.

HQ Happenings | April 2021

I’m so excited to serve as your PCDP Director! I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself.

I was born and raised in Phoenix, and graduated from the UA (Bear Down!) in 2018 with a double major in Spanish and Political Science. Almost immediately, the statewide coordinated campaign recruited me as an organizer, and I relocated to Flagstaff. We knocked on doors, made calls, and recruited volunteers day and night to make sure that Democrats were elected up and down the ballot in the 2018 midterms.

Notes From The Chair | April 2021

Isn’t this the best time of year in Tucson? The scent of citrus blossoms sweetens the air. Cacti and wild flowers are blooming. It’s cool enough to sleep with the windows open, and warm enough to truly enjoy the outdoors.

But as our too-brief spring rolls into our too-hot summer, I’ve been thinking ahead to 2022. Elections are as much about issues as candidates, and no issue is more important to democracy than guaranteeing every eligible voter a clear path to the ballot box.

Meet First Vice Chair Nathan Davis

By Richard Wiebe
Truth be told, middle-school teacher Nathan Davis would prefer sitting on the Amphi School District Governing Board. He missed by just .25 percent of 120,000 votes in the four-way Amphi race, but with some gentle arm twisting by Chair Bonnie Heidler and former Chair Alison Jones, he ran for PCDP First Vice Chair.

“Bonnie and I see eye-to-eye on the key issues facing PCDP, and I hope to help PCDP grow in influence and reach even more voters,’’ Nathan said. “Local, state and national elections will be here before you know it.”
