One response to “DGT Annual Awards Luncheon

  1. Several hundred Democrats at this luncheon today, with MC Fitz saying how glad he was to be in the company of so many “normal human beings”. Many Dem elected politicians were present & introduced, prior to the awards ceremony. Eva Bacal presented Martin Bacal Lifetime Achievement to Bob & Elaine Clark, saying they had the “principles we all stand for”; Supervisor Richard Elias presented Business Leader award to Frances Erunez; former Rep. Victoria Steele presented the Laura Hogan Community Outreach award to Renee Morton. Then LD 9 Rep. Kirsten Engel gave a unity speech for all Dems to support whomever won the August 2018 primary, prior to introducing Keynote speaker Steve Farley. He said that a new Democrat was born every time Donald Trump tweeted, that the # of PCs in Arizona has tripled since Nov. 2016, and that “Arizona deserves better than Doug Ducey”, current Governor, who has cut education funding & supported more corporate tax breaks. Farley also said that he wanted the room of Democrats to support whomever wins the Dem Gubernatorial primary, to bring “sanity” back to Arizona. Final thank yous from DGT organizers Jeanne Christie & Jeremey Lasher.
