February 2024 LD12 Meeting Highlights

Chairman Greg Dutton gave us an update on the upcoming Quadrennial State Delegates Election.  The election will be held on Wednesday, March 27th from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. at Pima Canyon Church, which is located at 9807 S. 48th St., Phoenix 85044.  Greg stressed the importance of this election and asked that everyone clear their calendars in order to participate.  LD12 will elect 50 State Delegates to go on to the State Convention, which will be held on Saturday, April 27th.

Greg recognized Outstanding Precinct Committeemen, with Walter Grandfield as the Precinct Committeeman of the Year.

Volunteers are needed to participate in the March 30th Easter Parade and Spring Fling – see the Hot Button or Events.  This event is being held at the Ahwatukee Community Park on the NW corner of Warner and 48th St.  The event will be a great opportunity to hand out candidate literature and interact with voters.  Candy donations are also needed and appreciated.

The Presidential Preference Election Postcards were distributed to each precinct and in turn shared with Right Leaning PNDs (Party Not Defined).  Only Registered Republicans will be able to vote in the March 19th election, so it is important to let those who are registered as PNDs know that unless they change their party preference, they will not be able to make their voices heard and help elect our next President. The deadline to re-register is February 20th. We also need to Get Out the Vote by asking Hard Republicans to cast their ballots at one of the Vote Centers, which open on February 21st or to mail their ballots before the deadline of March 12th.  

LD12 is hosting the Hand Count Road Show at Pollock Cinemas on Sunday, February 25 at 3:00 p.m. Mark Cook will speak to us about running an efficient, precinct-based, transparent hand count as well as how to reclaim control of maintaining our voter rolls.  The cost is $10 per person, and donations to Mark to cover his travel expenses will be appreciated.  Please use the Hot Button to sign up for this event.

We had another informative meeting with our guest speakers, including Michele Swinick, Host of the Saving My Freedom movement.

Michele spoke to us about election fraud that occurred during the November 8th, 2022 election.  She showed us several examples of a broken system in which election laws and procedures were not followed.
