Democratic Club news

April meeting: Monday, April 11 in the Navajo Room of Sun Lakes Country Club, 25601 Sun Lakes Blvd. The speaker will be Dave Martin, retired Union Service Rep.

Mr. Dave Martin, now retired, was a Union Service Representative for many local unions. As such he was involved in making plans for arbitration cases and negotiations. He will speak to the situation of unions in Arizona and the issues of wage equality and minimum wage.

There will also be brief presentations from two Democratic candidates for the Corporation Commission, Bill Mundell and Tom Chabin and LD 17 candidates, Jennifer Pawlik and Steve Weichert.

At all club meetings, non-perishable food items are collected for the Matthew’s Crossing Food Bank. Collections take place on meeting nights in the west parking lot from 6:30-7:00 p.m. There is also a collection box at the north entrance of the Sun Lakes Sunset Grill lobby. In 2014 the total amount collected was 1,880 pounds of food and $170. In 2015 the total was 2,310.5 lbs. of food and $686.00. The amount collected in January (354 lbs. of food and $30) and February (232 lbs. of food and $20) shows we are off to a good start with totals of 586 lbs. of food and $50. Thank you and congratulations Sun Lakes Democrats for your continuing generosity!
