Event Details

Desert Stonewall Democrats January Virtual Membership Meeting will discuss the importance of the 2022 elections, and their potential effect on the future of our democracy.

Stonewall's special guest is Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta (read his short Bio here), candidate for Pennsylvania's second US Senate seat (Senator Pat Toomey (R) is retiring). Malcolm is currently State Representative in the Pennsylvania House, the first openly LGBTQ person of color in that Statehouse. Rep. Kenyatta will discuss the importance of the 2022 elections, and their potential effect on the future of our democracy. Don't miss this "rising star" in the Democratic party.

At the January meeting we have some important business to transact:

  • Voting for the Chair and Vice-Chair positions for the next two years. Candidates thus far:
    • Chair:  David Weiner
    • Vice-Chair: DeeAnn Hopings
  • Voting to elect the Steering Committee members.  The slate of candidates will be announced at the meeting.

If you are are a member in good standing (see bylaws) and wish to nominate yourself or (with their permission) another DSD member for any of these positions, you may do so prior to the vote. The nominee should be prepared to give a two to three minute speech about their qualifications for the position. (Note: Treasurer and Secretary positions are elected in alternate years.) 

  • Voting on early endorsement requests.

This month, Christy Holstege is eligible for early endorsement by DSD in her candidacy for Assembly District 42. The Steering Committee has recommended her endorsement; now the membership is asked to vote. Christy will join us to discuss her candidacy.

Let us know soon (info@desert-stonewall.org) if you wish to confirm your membership/voting status.
Renew your membership here or make monthly membership donations here.

We expect to offer a forum for local candidates to introduce themselves at our monthly meetings this year. This month we will hear from David Dodson, candidate for the Board of Equalization, 4th District and potentially others.
