The June Tanque Verde Democrats Meeting has Been Canceled

The Tanque Verde Democrats are canceling the meeting scheduled for Saturday, June 12, 2021, so that officers and members can attend a Memorial Service for Ann-Eve Pedersen, a former reporter and editor for the Star and Citizen and friend to some TVVDC board members, club members, and legislators. Luci Banales Messing described her “as an unwavering education activist, a historical preservation advocate, fierce investigative reporter, and an incredibly passionate leader who brought people together for the sake of our community. She was relentless in her quest to improve public school education and as a co-founder of the Arizona Education Network, she traveled the state on behalf of Proposition 204.”

LD9 & LD10 Legislative Update

Saturday, June 12, 2021
10:00am to 11:00am

You will want to join us for our next meeting. We will be hosting all of our legislators:

  • LD9: Sen. Victoria Steele, Rep. Randy Friese, and Rep. Pamela Powers-Hannley.
  • LD10: Sen. Kirsten Engel, Rep. Domingo DeGrazia and Rep. Stephanie Stahl Hamilton

Our legislators will provide a complete update regarding the latest shenanigans that took place in the State Legislature. We will hear the good, the bad, and the worst case scenarios on what happened during this session.

There is a slight possibility that the Legislature could still be in session if they have not passed the budget. In its current form, it is one of the worst budgets put forth by the Republican majority. The budget calls for $1.5 billion in permanent tax cuts and giveaways. It also includes more money for private and parochial schools instead of adding money to public schools for teacher raises and making our schools whole due to the pandemic.

The Tanque Verde Valley Democratic Club presents speakers of interest to Democratic voters on the second Saturday of every month.
