Notes From The Chair | May 2021

With summer heat around the corner, it’s the perfect time for PCDP to host a world-class climatologist for our first major fundraising event of 2021. “We CAN (Climate Action Now) Fundraiser” will feature Dr. Michael E. Mann, Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric...

Notes From The Chair | April 2021

Isn’t this the best time of year in Tucson? The scent of citrus blossoms sweetens the air. Cacti and wild flowers are blooming. It’s cool enough to sleep with the windows open, and warm enough to truly enjoy the outdoors.

But as our too-brief spring rolls into our too-hot summer, I’ve been thinking ahead to 2022. Elections are as much about issues as candidates, and no issue is more important to democracy than guaranteeing every eligible voter a clear path to the ballot box.

HQ Update | August 2020

I’m so excited to have been chosen to serve as your new Executive Director. After nearly two decades serving our country overseas as a Foreign Service Officer, this election was too important to stay neutral. We witnessed a demonstration of America’s potential last week, this is the correct choice for this moment in history.

Though we’re still largely virtual, HQ operations continue apace. We’ve installed security cameras and are servicing the A/C system and computers. Leila and I are at HQ M-Sa and limited volunteers are here afternoons M-F.

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.”

Meet Zoey Fife, PCDP Recording Secretary

The role of Recording Secretary is vital to every organization, and the Pima County Democratic Party is no exception. Zoey Fife was appointed to that job last August and elected to the post at PCDP’s annual meeting in November.

In addition to taking minutes at monthly meetings, Zoey enjoys pitching in with PCDP events, like the Udall dinner and the mayor’s inaugural luncheon.
When events come off without a hitch, I feel like something important was accomplished,” she said. “I look forward to the day we can safely meet in person and celebrate our hard work through the pandemic.”

Volunteer Spotlight | Joanie Allison

By Richard Wiebe

 Golfers Joanie and Jim Allison grew to love Tucson during their February visits to Dove Mountain’s Accenture Match Play Championship golf tournament. When asked about her proficiency as a golfer, Joanie would only say the greenskeepers of Alexandria, VA, celebrated when the Allisons retired to Tucson in 2012.

Joanie leads Thursday’s morning and afternoon volunteer crews at PCDP headquarters. Now working from home, she returns phone calls and answers questions about everything from voter registration to road repair. Her favorite calls are inquiries about registering as a Democrat.

 “I enjoy interacting with the public, and I look forward to returning to the office and our merry band of volunteers,” she said.  “Alison and Cat are so supportive. We all learn from each other, but Alison and Cat are special.”
