Consultant Cheryl Cage who served as Chair of Pima County Democratic Party since January, 2015 has resigned. Here is her letter:
“September 24, 2015
Dear PCDP Executive Committee members: Since 2006 I have devoted my energies toward Democratic efforts in southern Arizona. I accepted the position of chair because I believed that my campaign management experience and passion for Democratic ideals would serve the party well. During the first six months I am extremely proud that we established, and fully funded, a capital fund to renovate the Pima County Democratic Party headquarters. We also established a Democratic ‘Bench’ Training program while raising the visibility of the party throughout the district. However, it appears that others within the leadership of the party disagree with my approach. Although I was willing to work and address our differences others were not. It is with great sadness, and great personal disappointment that I resign as Chair of Pima County Democratic Party effectively immediately.
With greatest respect and good wishes for the future, Cheryl A. Cage”
