Welcome to the SaddleBrooke Democratic Club
One of the largest Democratic clubs in Arizona with almost 300 members. Learn about us, visit us and better yet join us. We are a social club. Isn’t it nice to meet with and get to know like thinkers — people who believe in the minimum wage, women’s rights, civil rights and voting rights for all, and economic fairness? We are an educational club with monthly meetings featuring Democratic candidates, presentations and discussion of important political and social issues of the day. And, we are an active club, raising money through dues and fund-raisers working to help elect Democratic candidates at local, State and national levels.
We meet the second Tuesday of the month, 3:30 P.M. at the HOA 1 Activity Center, 64518 Galveston Lane (off Ridgeview), Tucson, AZ
Next Meeting Tuesday, October 11th
October means Octoberfest, and Saddlebrooke Democrats will be celebrating at our next meeting with hot dogs and beer! Our speaker will be Seth Cohen, Democratic CD 1 Get Out the Vote, (GOTV) organizer will tell us what he is doing in campaign’s final days.
How to Elect Corin Hammond
Arizona’s Legislative District 11 has two representative seats for the Arizona Legislature to be elected this fall. The seats are currently held by Republicans Vince Leach and Mark Finchem, who are both seeking re-lection. They oppose any common sense restrictions on gun ownership. They want to overturn the Affordable Care Act, and voted to cloak campaign contributions referred to as “dark money” from their constituents, from the citizens they represent. Last May they both voted against KidsCare, a children’s health insurance program, paid for by Federal funds, meant to provide healthcare to children in low income families. Fortunately, the KidsKare program was passed and signed by the Governor in spite of Leach and Finchem who, of course, claim to support children and families.
We have one outstanding Democratic candidate running against them, Corin Hammond
. As Democrats, we must use our votes to most effectively support her candidacy. Each voter is allowed to vote for only two of the three candidates. However, because Hammond is the only Democrat running in LD 11, every vote for either of the Republican candidates dilutes support for Hammond.
The most effective and strategic way for Democrats to support our single Democratic candidate for LD 11 representative is to vote for only one candidate, Corin Hammond, and to withhold votes for either Republican candidate.
