"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.

    LD17 Headquarters in Gilbert, AZ

    Back to School Backpack Drive

    Each year For Our City works with Chandler Unified School District to provide school supplies, uniforms, shoes, and haircuts before the first day of school.  The entire community plays a role in this massive event. The LD 17 Democrats in coordination with Jennifer Pawlik for AZ House and Steve Weichert for AZ Senate are sponsoring 50 backpacks for K-2 students in need. 

    The backpacks have already been donated, so we are committed to filling them with school supplies. You may sign up for as many or as few items as you would like. Supplies may be brought to the July LD meeting or the office by July 3.  Please email Jennifer with questions at Jennifer@JenniferPawlik.com

    Thank you to Diana Washington of DW Consulting Group for donating all 50 boxes of crayons!
