Democrats of Greater Tucson (“DGT”) is the only weekly forum for Democrats in Arizona. With its in-person meetings shut down, DGT has sprung to life online with an engaging new website, an informative e-newsletter, podcasts and new webinars featuring candidates for local offices, including:
Steve Diamond, Democrat running for Pima County Supervisor in District 4. The webinar will take place at Noon on Monday, March 30. The public is invited to attend by simply registering here.

After a 16-year career of criminal justice work, including defense, victim advocacy, and almost 2 years of the management of 400 federal contract attorneys, she has the leadership skills the Pima County Attorney’s Office needs, so the next generation of prosecutors may keep us safe and sound.
