MCDP's 2015 Summer Convention was packed and the attendees enthusiastic and ready to roll to victory this year and in 2016. OUR values of inclusion and empowerment were on full display -- in direct contrast with the divisive and hateful speeches flowing from the GOP's Trump/Arpaio event down the street.
We had an overflow crowd at the MCDP 2015 Summer Convention in Phoenix. Democrats supporting our candidates and ready to fight for our values -- education, jobs, and opportunity with dignity and justice for EVERYONE.
Maricopa County Democratic Party precinct committee members (PCs) voted unanimously to support the Move PHX Transportation Initiative (Prop 104) on the August 25 ballot, and also the One PHX Municipal ID proposal in Phoenix, and the Earned Sick & Safe Days proposal for workers in Tempe.
After a rousing address from Rep. Andrew Sherwood (D - LD 26) and an update from Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick's campaign for the U.S. Senate by D.B Mitchell, the PCs learned of details about MCDP's new, greatly expanded internship program -- Building Arizona's Leaders. They also heard from two of our previous interns about what the program meant for them and their futures.
All in all, it was a great, inspiring day. At the Maricopa County Democratic Party, we are ready for the fight ahead.
