YCDP – November 2020 Newsletter

9 mins read

It has been a long, difficult year, and we all deserve a moment to breathe and relax. We owe thanks to many who sacrificed much to bring about this victory. 

Let’s remember the candidates, volunteers, and supporters who in 2018 paved the way and began a grassroots revolution that was the cradle of this victory, many of whom went on to serve as campaign staff and volunteers for the last two years. 
Our thanks to all of you! 

To the poll workers and poll observers who selflessly stepped up, risking their health to ensure our election process conducted accurately and with integrity. 

To Felica French, Coral Evans, Judy Stahl, John Lutes and David Dohm we owe deep and lasting gratitude for their courage and dedication to democracy. You ran with integrity and energy, and your sacrifice helps prepare the path for future candidates.

We offer our immense thanks to Mission for Arizona! To Sam Knapp, Derrick Honeyman, Nicola Phillips, Grayson Wormser and Nick Panlibuton, thank you for your endless hard work! You delivered northern Arizona voters!

Finally to you, the voter: without you none of this would have been possible. Thank you for contributing your time, your money, your patience and your undying faith that truth, dignity, and equality will win out. “Thank you” hardly seems enough! 

Now we all take a long-deserved rest and begin the process all over again in preparation for the coming municipal elections and mid-terms. We can’t let up, we can’t go home. This victory was won at huge cost and we must honor all those who lost their lives, their loved ones, their homes and jobs due to lack of leadership. 
We must ensure this never happens again.

So enjoy your rest, recharge, and let’s return to the fight with renewed vigor!

In deep gratitude,
The Yavapai County Democratic Party
