Mail Call - MCDP reorg division

Next weekend (Saturday, December 13, to be precise) the Maricopa County Democrats will be holding their reorganization meeting for the next cycle. It will be held in the Multipurpose Room at the Royal Palm Middle School, 8520 N 19th Ave., Phoenix (Please park along Butler Dr.).

Mark Manoil, the current county chair, is not running for reelection so the politicking for the job has started in earnest.

Earlier today, Ann Wallack sent out an email asking folks for their support for her candidacy for county chair.

She's a businesswoman, wife, community activist, mom, and former candidate for state senate in LD11.

The text of her email (with [my name] edited out) -

Dear [your name here],

I am asking for you to support me as the next Chair of the Maricopa County Democratic Party. I want to serve you, work with you and represent you as we promote our Democratic values of education, healthcare and economic opportunities for all.

We are in a good position to achieve our over-riding goal of electing Democrats to public offices. There are more registered Democrats in Maricopa County than ever before. We have a huge number of new volunteers who were introduced to the political process in their enthusiasm to elect Barack Obama. And, we have a group of newly-elected District Chairs who are enthusiastic and ready to work.

My pledge to you is that I will work hard and use the experience and skills I've acquired from other organizations and apply them to our County Party in order to help us grow bigger and stronger. As your County Chair I would work with you to develop short and long term goals, ensure that our office staff is responsive to candidates, District Chairs and PC's, establish and achieve fundraising goals and make it easy and fun to register new voters.

I am asking for your vote at the Maricopa County Re-organization meeting on Saturday, December 13th. With your support we can all be ready for success in 2010!

Please call or email me if you have any questions!

Thank You,


Please note: This post is not an endorsement and should not be taken as one. I have never met Ann, nor do I know anything about her beside what is in her email and on her campaign website. If any other candidates for county or state party leadership positions email or otherwise contact PCs, those will be posted here, too.
