Saturday, December 1 -The Winter meeting of the Maricopa County Democratic Party (MCDP) will take place on Saturday, December 1, 2007 at the UA Plumbers and Pipefitters 469 Union Hall, 3109 N. 24th St., in Phoenix. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., training and workshops begin at 9.

Note - according to an email from LD17 chair Doug Mings, the Town Hall has been cancelled and should be rescheduled for early in the year.

Saturday, December 1 - An LD17 Town Hall with Senator Meg Burton-Cahill, Representative David Schapira, and Representative Ed Ableser will take place at the North Tempe Community Center, 1555 N. Bridalwreath in Tempe (just south of McKellips and east of Scottsdale Rd.)

Come hear what the upcoming session holds down at the State Capitol from our three legislators. The event starts at 10 a.m.

Saturday, December 1 - Join Harry Mitchell and his campaign team for a "Tailgate Party with Harry" before the ASU Sun Devils trounce the UA Wildcats on their way to a Rose Bowl berth. :))

Festivities start at 3:00 p.m. at 502 S. College Ave, Tempe. For more info call 480-755-3343 or email Herschel[at]Harry2006.com.

And for some comic relief on Saturday, December 1 - Out in LD4, Sheriff Joe Arpaio will be 'roasted' by an assortment of Republicans at the Maricopa County Events Center, 19403 RH Johnson Blvd , Sun City West.

It's a fundraiser, not sure for what, and I don't care enough to find out.

One of the scheduled roasters is professional bigot Terry Anderson; I doubt he had a problem with Arpaio saying that it was an "honor" when his critics compared him to the KKK.

Thursday, December 6 - Tempe City Council candidate Rhett Wilson is holding a campaign reception/fundraiser at Pier 54, 5394 S. Lakeshore Dr., Tempe. The event starts at 7:30 p.m. and features such luminaries at former U.S. Senator Dennis Deconcini on former Tempe Mayor Rudy Campbell.

Event contact: Amanda Thorson: (602) 565-6571 amanda[at]themediaguys.com

...And finally, something that isn't an event but is certainly a timely reminder -

From Corey Woods, candidate for Tempe City Council -

"...[P]etition signatures have to be turned in to the Tempe City Clerk’s office on Wednesday, December 12th. If you have a sheet that you would like to turn in, please contact me at your earliest convenience..."

And that's good advice for anyone involved in gathering signatures in Tempe. They're due; get them into the respective campaigns.
