Tuesday, August 9th from 5-7pm

Want to win a t-shirt? LD2 needs your help with our lit drop this Saturday 9AM (Aug 6th), meeting at: Starbucks – 20216 N 27th Ave. No talking to voters, just leave our flyer on the doors of voters. We are “dropping” our flyer at the doors of voters in the NW precincts of LD2. It’s a great way to get in your steps and win a t-shirt for the person who drops the most flyers at doors this weekend. You will have to use the miniVAN (unless prior arrangements have been made) to record your doors. In order to participate, you have to contact Meg Patel at 602-741-2373 to sign up so that we have enough turfs for everyone.

LD2’s next Happy Hour will be on Aug 9th from 5-7pm.  As a way to introduce our group to the community, attract more people to LD2 Democrats, and in support of local businesses in our LD, your LD2 Board has scheduled another Happy Hour this time visiting State 48 Rock House, 2530 W Happy Valley Rd, Unit 1269. Attend early to enjoy some appetizers care of your LD2 Democrats.

Scheduled to attend will be our LD2 Candidates: Rep Judy Schwiebert and Jeanne Casteen along with at least three of our wonderful CAP Water Board candidates. You never know who else might attend since the Primary will be over. No formal presentations, just a way to mingle and “feed your mind” with information and sign the Repeal HB2853 voucher petition.

Spread the word around, even if you don’t live in LD2 since we have the CAPWB candidates, too. Contact Meg Patel at 602-741-2373 to sign up for the lit drop and/or to attend the Happy Hour event.


Have you seen our new YouTube channel for LD2? Subscribe to it so that we can make more content. 


We use it to review the “single shot” political strategy in very basic terms to win the State House for LD2. We explain to voters to “throw away” their second vote to help increase the chances of getting our candidate elected.  We explained in more depth the strategy in last week’s edition of the newsletter. This time, visit our YouTube channel and tell your friends about it. It would be awesome to increase the number of subscribers so that we can add more content.


You’ve probably heard the phrase: “signs don’t vote,” but I think it helps in a subliminal way. The campaign is looking for volunteers who can help with installing street signs for our candidates. These signs are the larger ones which involve pounding rebar into the ground. If you can assist with pick-up and/or installation, please contact Mary Fortney at: mfortney@azdem.org

Candidate yard signs will be available at the LD meetings and other on-site events. Want to make phone calls, write postcards, or help with canvassing?

Please contact our LD2 Campaign Organizer, Taylor Nelson, who will be able to plug you into the right opportunity where you can get involved; she can be reached at 515-822-4022 or tnelson@azdem.org.

Special highlight of upcoming events:

  • 08/05 – Evening Canvass from 5-7:30pm at Tortoise Tea House, 2418 E Greenway Road

Thanks to the generosity of the LD 2 folks we had another successful collection for Paradise Valley Community Food Bank.

The staff there was really appreciative.


You can now order LD2 business cards at $30/box of 100 cards & name badges at $15/badge. We are using J & R Printing (a Union Printer in Phoenix) for our needs. As was demonstrated during the July LD2 meeting, please visit this link to submit and pay for your order: http://azld2dems.org/order/

We should have them ready in time for pickup at the August LD2 meeting. If you have any issues with ordering them, please contact Whit at whit@azld2dems.org


Remember when Prop 305 was overwhelmingly rejected by the voters in 2018? Unfortunately, the AZ Legislature voted to effectively dismantle public education by passing HB2853 Universal ESA Voucher Expansion. We’ve proven in the past how those of us who believe in properly funding public education can mobilize and do what needs to be done. To that end, we must collect 118,823 valid signatures before September 24, 2022 to stop universal ESA voucher expansion from going into effect. This referendum will then go on the Nov 2024 ballot where AZ voters can reject it once and for all.

At the August LD meeting, we will be bringing this petition for PCs to check out their own petition so that they can collect signatures from their neighbors.

Have an extra room and/or a bedroom? Can you help with providing supporter housing for an out-of-state person working on the LD2 campaign?

If you can help out, please contact Mary Fortney at: mfortney@azdem.org


You may wonder, what do we do with these funds? Since this is the first year we’ve been LD2 and now that we have our new logo, we need to create new marketing material. In addition to paying for our new meeting location, during this cycle, we will be making it easier for voters in our district to “get out the vote” (aka: GOTV) by crafting campaign literature. Are you a recurring donor to LD2? If not, it’s fast and easy and you will be automatically entered to win a gift card for your recurring donation? 

Anyone can donate - you don’t have to live in LD2.

How about $22 for LD2 in 2022?

If you have any questions, please contact LD2 Treasurer Truly Bone at Treasurer@azld2dems.org
