The Democrats of Greater Tucson (DGT) is Arizona’s only weekly forum for Democrats. Every meeting has speakers addressing subjects of political interest.  Frequently, especially during campaign season, Democratic candidates announce their candidacies and present their platforms at DGT meetings.
For information on meetings and topics or if you are interested in speaking to the DGT please contact President Jeremey Lasher at 520-609-7641 or jaylasher82@gmail.com

The Democrats of Greater Tucson’s meeting is held each Monday (except holidays) at 12 noon in a luncheon setting at Dragon’s View Restaurant.  There is a required nominal charge of $3.50 for a beverage.  An optional buffet lunch is available for just $10.00 that includes beverage and dessert.  Both prices include tax and tip. Credit and Debit Cards are accepted but will incur a $2.00 processing fee that is added to the price of your meal.

WHY DGT?

The Democrats of Greater Tucson celebrated its 35th year as “DGT” in 2014, as we marked another anniversary of losing the “young”, as in the “Young Democrats of Greater Tucson” in November.  We achieved this stepping-stone through hard work, showing fiscal responsibility, and by sticking to the original concept formulated by the founders of the shortened DGT; all Democrats get to speak.

Back in ’71 when DGT lost the “young” in the group’s title we gained the ability to be diverse not just in age but also in thought, race and political spectrum.  As long as one adhered to the moniker of “Member of the Democratic Party”, one could get on the speaker’s list.  As a result, DGT attendees have heard from Democrats across the wide spectrum of the party,  leaving all who participate richer as the result.

All of this does cost money to put together.  However, DGT remains the one of the lowest if not the lowest priced Democratic Clubs in the state.  The annual dues are $15 or just $1.25 a month.  Isn’t it time to consider joining or renewing for less than what it costs at many restaurants for lunch by itself? (When one calculates  DGT’s  expenses per month Dues + Minimum Charge per session.)

When you consider that one can enjoy a beverage for $3.50 or the luncheon buffet for $10.00 and both prices include an insightful speaker and pleasant company.  It’s hard to think of any better way to spend the first hour of a Monday afternoon.  Contact 2nd Vice President Kathy Ramage-White our Membership Chair [(520) 979-4342] for further information!

THANK YOU!!
