Cracking the ice: summer has officially arrived!
I wanted to take a moment here, as we head into the summer of 2021, to give you an update on what’s been going on here at the office. I am planning to write more of these monthly blog posts so you can see how PCDP is working every day to elect Democrats up and down the ballot here in Southern Arizona!
As you may already know, we onboarded a new PCDP administration in January of this year. Since then, there have been a few changes, but we are now fully staffed with a Chair, First Vice Chair, Second Vice Chair, Corresponding Secretary, Recording Secretary, Treasurer, Operations Coordinator, Social Media Strategist, Website and Graphic Designer, and Director. In addition, we also have some new interns in the office who are helping with everything from our communications to fundraising.
PCDP is cautiously optimistic that we may soon host an office re-opening event where people can come in to meet our new folks!
In the meantime we have started to open our office again to volunteers, who have dedicated their time to make sure our office operations continue to run smoothly. We’re also planning hybrid events, where people can join either in person or via Zoom.
Of course, we have continued to build our strategy for how we are going to contact the 18,000+ Democrats in Pima County who are now at risk of being removed from the AEVL list. We also monitor #fraudit and redistricting, both of which threaten the integrity of the elections process. Every day as restrictive abortion and voting rights laws continue to pass in the Arizona state legislature we are reminded of what is at stake if we do not act.
The 2022 campaign season has already begun, and we need your help to make sure we are ready to fight for the next 17 months so we can keep Arizona blue.
On election night of 2022, as the results start coming in from all over the state, I do not want to be asking myself if I could have done more; I know I will have done all that I can to ensure that Democrats win up and down the ticket.
If you haven’t already this year, please take a moment to think about all you are doing to help elect Democrats, and ask yourself if there is any room to take on more. Whether it is increasing a donation, committing to volunteer, or writing to your representatives, every act of political engagement will enable PCDP to fight for your Democratic values.
I am incredibly grateful to be working with such a wonderful community, and I’m excited to see where we will take PCDP next!
Thank you, and stay safe!
