Saturday: April Monthly Action Meeting at 10 am
Special Guest: Congressman Tom O’Halleran, whose race in the newly-drawn CD-2 has been rated as the most competitive in the country. The New CD-2 geography covers over 60% of Arizona, including Flagstaff, Prescott, the Navajo Nation, and other tribal lands. Victory for Mark Kelly in the Senate race depends on Democrats turning out in this District, as does victory in many of our Statewide races.
Information: What have Democrats delivered for Coconino County? To answer that question, we have invited the Chair of the Coconino County Board of Supervisors, Patrice Horstman, and Flagstaff Mayor Paul Deasy. Learn about the local impact of the American Rescue Plan and the Infrastructure Bill.
Plus, “Who’s running?” — an update on all races now that signatures have been filed, and new social media technology.
Join us for an exciting and informative meeting.
We’ll be in person at the Murdoch Center (address and map here) and on Zoom.

Lina Wallen is Eleanor Roosevelt Honoree
The Executive Committee chose Lina Wallen to receive this year’s Eleanor Roosevelt Award for outstanding service to the community. Lina’s many efforts, especially on behalf of the children of Coconino County, made her a most deserving recipient. Read more.
We Endorse Prop 438
At our last Action Meeting, with nearly 70 in attendance, we endorsed Prop 438, which will fix the crisis in funding at Coconino Community College — if passed in the special election on May 17. Read more here.
Kelsey Blakley Retires
Our office manager of many years, Kelsey Blakley, will retire at the end of next week. She is out of the office this week but will return next week. We have some retirement well-wishing cards available in the office if you would like to swing by and pick one up or fill one out for her. Let’s send her off with lots of love and appreciation, she certainly has done a lot for us and will be missed!
At the finale of the Roosevelt-Kennedy Fundraiser this past Sunday, the Chair’s Award for outstanding service to our county party was presented to Kelsey.
