Sun Lakes Democrats to Learn About Water Policy in Arizona

Thomas Jefferson wrote that a well-informed electorate is a prerequisite to democracy, and we couldn’t agree more. That’s why our meetings have included numerous speakers on topics ranging from ranked choice voting and homelessness, to water resources.

The Sun Lakes Democratic Club (SLDC) will host a conversation on water policy in Arizona at our September meeting.

Sarah Porter, director of the Kyl Center for Water Policy, will discuss the center’s approach in leading research, analysis, and efforts to build a consensus for sound water stewardship for the West in general and Arizona in particular. The Kyl Center, named after retired U.S. Senator Jon Kyl in recognition of his continued leadership on water issues, is housed at Morrison Institute, part of the ASU College of Public Service and Community Solutions. With the ongoing drought spanning many years, this promises to be an informative overview of water policy and how it affects each of us.

Also joining us will be Representative Jennifer Pawlik (LD 13). Jennifer will update us on the outcomes of the past Arizona legislative session and when laws passed will be implemented.

SLDC is made up of like-minded individuals who are part of over 2,500 registered Democrats throughout the Sun Lakes area, promoting an Arizona that works for everyone. We invite you to join us at 6:30 p.m. for a social hour, with the meeting starting at 7 p.m. on Sept. 11 in the Navajo Room at Sun Lakes Country Club, at 25061 E. Sun Lakes Blvd N., in Sun Lakes.

We also invite you to our First Friday Coffee at Kneaders on Friday, Sept. 1, from 10 to 11 a.m. Kneaders is at Queen Creek and Alma School Road in the Aldi’s shopping center.
