Building on 2012 Strength to Elect Democratic Governor
With the second inauguration of President Obama, Navajo County Democrats have much to be thankful for: a strong Democratic president, a Democratic Congresswoman and good Democratic leadership in the key posts of county government. We will need to build on that strength to elect a Democratic governor and Democratic Legislature in 2014.
I am especially proud of the strength and unity shown by the White Mountain Apaches who voted 94% for Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick and provided her with nearly half of her overall margin of victory of 7,000 votes. Having just moved from a leadership role in the White Mountain Democrats to the position of county chairman, I look forward to having more opportunity to work with our Navajo and Hopi neighbors in the next election.
Message from New White Mountain Democrats President
Dear White Mountain Democrats,
Thanks to Holly Hanson and Dave Berry, especially, and to all who attended and brought wonderful food and beverages to the party last Saturday. It was fun! Thanks also for showing your confidence in me (Sheryl Eaton) by electing me President of the Club. Others elected members of the Board were Holly Hanson, Barbara Teague, David Widmaier, and Don Wise. Jan Newton continues as Vice President and Ginny Dotson as Secretary, both members of the Board. Eric Kramer, Past President, continues as a member of the Board, and Eduardo Coronado continues as a member of the Board. We are thinking of creating a new position, Financial Coordinator. If that position is created, someone will be either appointed or elected to it.
