What does the Congressional Representative of AZ CD6 do?

The House of Representatives serves as the most direct form of representation for the American public due to the proportional ratio of American citizens to U.S. Representatives.

It is the duty of the representative from Congressional District 6 to introduce bills, offer amendments and be the voice of their constituency on the House floor and in committee.

The new CD6 covers the eastern half of Pima County including voters from the edge of our southern border and up to the San Carlos reservation.

Who are the Democratic candidates?

Avery Anderson never intended to go into politics after graduating from the University of Colorado Boulder’s engineering problem. However, after a few years in the professional world developing new strategies to implement wind energy and as a lead engineer for Raytheon here in Tucson, he made the choice to move towards public service. Avery wants to draw on his experience in the energy and defense industry in order to bring a young, data-driven voice to Congress.

After being named a national hero for his service on the day of the tragic attempt on Gabby Giffords life, Daniel Hernandez continued his commitment to public service by advocating for reproductive rights and later serving as a state representative. During his tenure in the Arizona legislature he has fought for the expansion of affordable healthcare and advocated for the LGBTQ+ community. Daniel is running for Congress to continue to fight for progressive values while working across the aisle to get real results for the people of Southern Arizona.

Kirsten Engel is a legislator, professor, activist and mom who currently serves in the Arizona Senate and as the Associate Dean and Director of the Environmental Law Program for the University of Arizona. As a legislator with experience in environmental and administrative law, she has fought against Republican education cuts to ensure Arizona’s public schools are fully-funded and worked to protect Arizona’s natural resources from environmental degradation. She now wants to bring this fight to the US House of Representatives where she plans to make healthcare more affordable, build an economy that works for all Arizonans and protect our environment from the dangers of climate change.

Event Instructions

Please do not arrive before 12:30pm. We will be unable to access the classroom until then, and we want to make sure that people do not have to be out in the heat longer than necessary.

Our event will be taking place in the Steward Observatory, NOT the Annex. Specifically we will be in Room N210 which is located just east of the observatory’s white dome. You cannot access the classroom by walking through the Steward Observatory building. You must walk outside to the east side of the white dome and then look for the entrance to Room N210.

We will be asking all attendees to wear masks and to keep at least one empty seat between them and others.

Parking

There are two main options for parking: Second St Garage and Cherry Garage. Parking is free on the weekends in the garages. If you try to park in one of the permit lots next to the observatory, you may end up getting a parking ticket.
