Welcome

"All politics are local"

Thomas P. "Tip" O'Neill, Jr.

Former Speaker, U.S. House of Representatives

 

It is at the local level that politics works for voters or can influence those holding or running for office.

Arizona LD 17 Democrats are exactly that... your local Democratic Party for Chandler Gilbert and Sun Lakes.  As part of the Democratic Party, we are associated with the Arizona Democratic Party, and with the Maricopa County Democratic Party to insure Democrats run and win office.

Come Join Us!

    August 2018 Newsletter

    Competition Is Good, but Remember Who Our Real Opponent Is If you're like me, you are inundated with phone calls, texts, social media posts and mailings asking for support for the many candidates running for office this election cycle. Getting to know candidates is important; it helps you decide which person will best represent you and your interests. In some of our races (particularly the statewide and congressional races), we have multiple candidates running in the primary. It's exciting to see so many step up to run and you should support the candidates. Spending your precious time, money and energy are great ways of demonstrating your commitment to getting that individual elected. Many of you post on Facebook or Twitter about who you are or aren't supporting. And sharing your opinions help educate other voters.   However, we can still support our candidate without being negative about the other primary candidate. Let's not give our opponents material to use when the general election happens.
