PCDP Chair Calls For President’s Immediate Removal

“Trump encouraged a terrorist mob to rampage through the Capitol,” Heidler said. “He is unfit to hold the nation’s highest office and must be removed. At least four Americans died during the riot and at least 360,000 Americans have died of COVID-19. Trump is responsible for both, and sadly all four Republican U.S. Representatives are complicit.’’

Bonnie Heidler | Chair of PCDP

Bonnie Heidler

Notes From The Chair | Feb 2021

Heading into my first full month as PCDP‘s Chair, I knew I’d be inundated with party business, taking a break on January 20 to celebrate the inaugurations of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. But on January 6, two days after the first Executive Committee meeting of 2021, the unthinkable happened: an armed assault on the United States Capitol, where our elected representatives were meeting to certify the election results. Suddenly, I found myself on television, after KGUN and Univision requested statements about the insurrection. I was honored to speak for PCDP about this traumatic event.

LD9 Volunteer Story | Mary Alice Theroux’

Her advice to people who are considering campaigning for Democrats is: “Don’t be afraid. There’s always something that you can do. Don’t be intimidated by maybe a Republican neighbor, or others that you think might not like you because you’re out there campaigning for Democrats. I plow through and I think the best way to change what’s happening in this country is to change who’s in charge.”

Meet First Vice Chair Nathan Davis

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.”

"Companies have so much power to threaten and intimidate, to put people in closed rooms and tell them over and over again how terrible unions are. We have to change that,” Sen. Sanders says, discussing the Alabama Amazon union vote. https://on.msnbc.com/3dWntOw

“The purge alone could disenfranchise as many as 50,000 of the state’s Latino voters, Randy Perez, the democracy director at LUCHA, a community-organizing group, told me. ‘That could be 7 percent of our state’s Latino voters gone in a flash.’”

The @WindsorPD Chief apparently listed the “incident” with #CaronNazario as “obstruction of justice” in his January Police Report to the Mayor and Town Council. I texted him and asked the following and included a screen shot of his report.

1/2 Imagine what happens to black men & women who are not in uniform? This man is a military officer in his uniform, yet he is still terrorized and violently beaten by racist cops. #WindsorPD #BLM

In case anyone’s forgotten, this is why @Kaepernick7 took a knee... #BlackLivesMatter

.@WindsorPD, as a veteran; and as a human being; I demand that you hold officers Daniel Crocker and Joe Gutierrez accountable for their police brutality assault of Lt. Caron Nazario.

AZ Governor Ducey just signed #HB2569, which bans local elections officials from accepting nonprofit funds to help run elections.

Out of 30+ proposed voter suppression bills in AZ, this one is among the first to become law. It is identical to one provision of GA's SB202. (1/3)

Army Lt. Nazario was driving his new car home. He was pulled over, pepper sprayed, and arrested without explanation.

This is racism. It’s about the domination and humiliation of a Black man because he asked questions and “didn’t comply.”
