On August 27, Tucson Councilwoman Regina Romero triumphed in the Tucson mayoral primary, winning more than 50 percent of the vote in a three-way race with record voter turnout. Councilwoman Romero’s positive message of economic sustainability and environmental stewardship energized her supporters, and emphasized her City Council experience.
Councilwoman Romero – and Tucson – made history, and Tucson became national news, as our city came one step closer to electing the first Latina mayor in Tucson history. It is, indeed, an exciting time to be in Tucson!
Cat Ripley –
August in Tucson brought the heat – and thankfully, monsoon rains to cool it. It also brought heated Democratic mayoral and city council primaries. Now we’re gearing up to support our candidates in the November general election. Regina Romero is poised to make history as Tucson’s first Latina mayor! We at HQ could not be prouder and more excited. Congratulations to Lane Santa Cruz for running a beautiful campaign in Ward 1, to uncontested candidates Niki Lee, in Ward 4, and Ward 2’s incumbent Paul Cunningham. There’s plenty to do between now and the November 5 general election. Ballots go out on October 10.

My Republican counterpart’s letter regarding “Medicare for All” is filled with misinformation and fear-mongering.

The same doctors and hospitals will continue to practice and operate.
LD11 has been working with Field Team 6 to register voters in Tucson and the surrounding area. We have held two 2 day events, the latest being on July 22 and July 23. Gil Wier from our Voter Registration and Contact Issue Action Committee is coordinating the events and he reports that a total of 234 forms for voters have been submitted to the Pima County Recorders Office.
In early July, volunteers sent letters welcoming 485 newly-registered Democrats in our LD, suggesting ways to get involved with LD10 Democrats. The project included a “Letters to New Voters Mailing Party,” which drew 27 participants.
LD 9 chair Kim Holaway has a quick update of upcoming events you might want to attend.
One of Bill Laray’s neighbors tells Bill that he has “failed at retirement,’’ for which the HQ staff is grateful. Bill, a Precinct 94 PC in LD 10, shows up three days a week to “square things away,’’ as the Navy calls it: “getting the place organized, everything...
