White Mountain Dems Help Knock on 1,200 LD6 Doors on Saturday

White Mountain Democrats helped to knock on more than 1,200 doors on Saturday to help win the Legislative District 6 race which is critical to winning control of the Arizona Legislature.

Helping Wade Carlisle defeat State Sen. Sylvia Allen is our key goal for 2018. We are also supporting Bobby Tyler and Felicia French for the Arizona House seats in the district.

White Mountain Dems helped Payson Democrats plan the day of action and promised to provide experienced canvassers. Payson Democrats responded to the offer with an overwhelming turnout. Together, 32 of 40 Payson neighborhoods were canvassed, amounting to more than 800 doors knocked. Canvassers found that a surprising number of Independents were willing to support the Carlisle-Tyler-French ticket.

In addition to the local Democrats, representatives of Save Our Schools/No On Proposition 305 joined the effort, as well as the campaign of Dr. David Brill for Congress. (Payson is in Congressional District 4)

Meanwhile, more than 400 homes were canvassed in Flagstaff to bring the day's total to more than 1200.

Increasing the Democratic share of the vote in Payson by 10 percentage points has been identified as one of the keys to winning Legislative District 6 and putting Democrats in control of the Arizona Legislature for the first time in more than 50 years.

White Mountain Legislators

White Mountain Apache Tribal Chairwoman Gwendena Lee-Gatewood (second from left) met with the three Democrats who will represent the White Mountains in the Arizona Legislature during 2019 and 2020. Arlando Teller (left) is deputy director of the Navajo Transportation Department and is running for the Arizona House of Representatives. State Sen. Jamescita Peshlakai, (second from right) a Gulf War veteran from Cameron, is running for re-election. Myron Tsosie, (right) a member of the Chinle School Board who has been involved in education at public schools through the college level, is running along with Teller for the two seats in the House of Representatives. On July 11, they met with the Tribal Council to discuss areas ranging from education to highways and rural airports. They stressed the need to vote No on Proposition 305, which would take money from hard-pressed rural schools and give it to exclusive schools for the wealthy in the Valley.
