Democratic Club of Sun City Arizona November 2015 Newsletter
Current Slate of Officers
Here is the current slate of officers:
President Vance Coleman
Vice President Mikki Smith
Secretary Dee Faules
Treasurer Sybil Dunlap
At Large Harold Lilley
We will be voting this Thursday.
Sun City Democratic Club meets Thursday November 5 at Fairway Recreation Center. Coffee and Cookies are at 6:00PM with the program starting at 6:30PM. There is a multi media show beginning at 6:00PM. After election of officers for 2016 and voting on our By Laws revised to conform to guidelines of the Recreation Centers, we will take post card to Ducey action.
In a state where the minimum wage in AZ brings in $l6,220 a year, you might expect that families living on the edge, might seek short time state funding if a major illness or other emergency hits the family. The Federal laws allows five years for TANFF funding (Temporary Assistance to the Needy). Last year our legislature whittled it down to AZ: one year. When Mary Jo Pitzel spoke to us last month, she indicated that this next legislative session, NO temporary assistance will be available. Post Card patrol--to your posts!
Invite your neighbors and friends to attend the Sun City Democratic meetings and events. The more the merrier. See you there.

Democratic Club Coffee Time WELCOME!
You are WANTED!
Over the summer a stalwart group of us have been meeting every Monday around 9:00AM at the Starbucks on Bell and 99th Avenue. We never quite know who will be there or not but we carry on anyway!
Sometimes we cover politics and sometimes we talk about anything but politics. Mostly, we are all creating friendship bonds.
You are invited for coffee or ice tea and some great conversations. Become a regular with your fellow Democrats.
