“Our club is a grass roots organization for Democrats and independents who live, work, or have substantial interest in the Tanque Verde area, or the adjacent Sabino Canyon/Kolb corridor, and north of Speedway. Our primary marketing area consists of 25 precincts.
Formed after the 2004 election, we currently have over 170 members, and charge no dues. The club holds periodic meetings with prominent speakers, and has eight very active committees, ranging from Get out the Vote to Issues Discussion and Action. There are lots of ways for you to become involved and make a difference! We invite you to join us!”
I appreciate you mentioning me in the blog but I am wondering why I was not invited to participate. I believe the character of our elected officials matter and to learn a person’s character you need to meet Tham and talk and ask questions. I am willing to meet with any group and answer questions anytime. Hopefully we can sit down for an interview for your blog and I will answer any questions you may have about me and my campaign.
Gary, this is Democratic club so I guess they only invite Democrats to speak. But I will send your message to the TVVDC Chair Luci Messing, for a reply. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
