HQ Happenings | August 2019

By Executive Director Cat Ripley

What a great turnout we had for PCDP’s Democratic Mayoral Candidate Debate at Rincon University H.S.! Nearly 900 people showed up to listen to our three candidates: Regina Romero, Randi Dorman, Steve Farley. Arizona Public Media’s Christopher “Buzz” Conover moderated a lively round of questions and answers. Check out our FB Live post to see the entire debate if you missed it.

The Mayoral Candidates.

The audience got scorecards to rate the candidates’ performances. See the results on Facebook. KGUN, KVOA, and KOLD were present and featured us on the news that night! This took a team effort so many thanks to all who contributed to a great evening.

Great turnout at the debate.

Our PCDP Monthly Speaker Series kicked off with Civics 101, and What does the City Council Do? Classes. This is all part of our larger effort to offer training and education at HQ to make us all more civically and politically- savvy voters.

HQ is now preparing for a Primary Night Party at Reilly Craft Pizza & Drink, 101 E. Pennington St., on August 27. Please join us to celebrate our general election candidates for Tucson mayor and city council that night. 

Hard to believe summer is drawing to a close. Red for Ed will continue, the Outlaw Dirty Money campaign forges ahead, and Sanctuary City will be on the Tucson ballot. HQ will continue to support and gear up for November with slate mail pieces going out and a full court press to support our candidates in the General Election.

All of this work is fueled by our fabulous corps of volunteers. And so, we need to focus on fundraising not only to keep our doors open but to arm our volunteers with the tools and supplies needed to execute events, canvasses, phone banking, mailers, rallies, debates, and training programs.

Thank you all for your continued support with your time, your check books or both. TOGETHER WE WIN!
