The phrase “all politics are local” was first coined by the late Tip O’Neill, Speaker of the US House of Representatives. It is at the local level that politics works for voters or can influence those holding or running for office.
AZ LD 17 Democrats are exactly that … your local Democratic Party for parts of Chandler, Gilbert and all of Sun Lakes. As part of the Democratic Party, we are associated with the Arizona Democratic Party, with the Maricopa County Democratic Party and work with the Greater Eastern Maricopa County Democrats - GEMDEMS to insure Democrats run and win office.
Arizona has 30 Legislative Districts and LD 17 was the 10th highest in Arizona voters supporting Obama in the 2012 election. So while the registration numbers are Republican, our district has voted Blue.
Our mission is to assist in electing Democratic and/or candidates who embrace the values of the Democratic Party to public office within LD 17, the county, state and federal offices.
We believe in and encourage grass roots participation and welcome all who are motivated to make a difference in the political process.
We meet the first Tuesday of every month at Iguana Mack’s Restaurant, 1371 N Alma School Rd, (between Ray and Warner) at 7 PM.
Come join us!
LD 17 has set up an account with ActBlue to accept online contributions!
