LD 10 Democratic Legislators’ Town Halls starting Feb. 1


“Join LD10 State Legislators State Senator David Bradley, Rep. Kirsten Engel, & Rep. Domingo DeGrazia for House for monthly town halls during Arizona’s 2020 Legislative Session which is starting on January 13th.
Town Halls will take place at public libraries across the district on Saturdays from 10-11:30AM (check for each town hall event to confirm the location and time). Legislators will give brief updates on the work they’ve been doing followed by questions, comments, and concerns for the rest of the scheduled time.”

Carolyn’s note: LD 10 State Senator David Bradley will have served 4 terms (8 years) and will be thus termed out in 2020. Running for his seat is LD 10 Rep. Kirsten Engel, an environmental law professor at the UA. So now running for 2 seats in the AZ House for LD 10 are incumbent Rep. Domingo DeGrazia, also an attorney, and political newcomers Paul Stapleton-Smith, Chair of Pima Area Labor Federation, and Stephanie Hamilton, education activist/religious leader.

  1. UPDATE for the March 21 town hall from Rep. Kirsten Engel. They will have a Facebook LIVE town hall this Saturday, go to http://www.engelforarizona.com. This is a novel way to hold a town hall, so hopefully it will work due to coronavirus concerns, with 4 cases in Pima County right now. Info on our Calendar event as well.
