The Sun Lakes Democratic Club will hold its next meeting on Monday, July 14 at 7:00 p.m. in the Navajo Room of the Sun Lakes Country Club, 25601 N. Sun Lakes Blvd.
Please join us as we welcome our speakers, David Garcia, a candidate for Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction and Anthony Miller, survivor of cardiomyopathy and co-founder of the American Foundation for Cardiomyopathy.
Dr. David Garcia is an Arizona native and product of Mesa public schools. He is a former Associate Superintendent of Public Instruction for Standards and Accountability and is widely regarded as a national expert on education policy and research. He currently teaches future education leaders at Arizona State University. David has said that as Superintendent of Public Instruction, “I will be accountable to all of our stakeholders, and will welcome their input and willingly discuss how we can work together for the future of Arizona’s public schools and the future of our economy.”
In 2003 and 2004 Anthony Miller suffered two heart attacks due to a disease called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM, sudden cardiac arrest in people under 30). After rehabilitation, Anthony and his wife, Stephanie, created the American Foundation for Cardiomyopathy for the education and assistance of others who suffer from HCM.
