Dear YavDem Supporter,

Of the two Democratic candidates for governor, most people are familiar with Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, who was unable to join us for the Third Thursday event. Candidate Marco Lopez is a graduate of the University of Arizona who ran for mayor of his hometown of Nogales at 21 and won, becoming one of the youngest mayors in the country. After serving two terms, Governor Napolitano asked Lopez to serve at the state level as Director of the Arizona Department of Commerce. He later was appointed as the chief of staff of United States Customs and Border Protection in the Obama Administration.

Dear YavDem Supporter,

To be effective we need to be organized and we want to have Yavapai County be more organized than we have ever been this year. We are going to host a Rural Action Summit June 11, 9 a.m.-5:30 p.m. at Mile High Middle School in downtown Prescott to inform and inspire the people who will make a difference in this year’s statewide elections. Our Rural Action Summit will emphasize the importance of direct voter contact and provide leadership training in phone banking, text banking, social media messaging and door-to-door canvassing. If we pull together and strengthen our organizing networks we can begin the transformational political work that will make Arizona a better place to be.
