Dave Ewoldt Campaign Opens with a Community Party!

Dave Ewoldt, Independent candidate for Arizona State Senate from Legislative District 28, will be hosting a Gala Campaign Kickoff Weekend Friday, July 16th through Sunday, July 18th at the Ewoldt campaign headquarters at 2602 E Grant Road in Tucson.

This 3-day event will include a campaign kickoff press conference, presentations by the candidate, Transition Pima, documentary producers, musicians, artists, comedian(s) and important speakers. There will be ample opportunity during the weekend for the people of LD28 to interact with the candidate, learn how they can contribute to the campaign, and how Ewoldt´s platform can deliver solutions to the crises we all know we´re facing.

Mr. Ewoldt´s platform highlights remedies for social and political ills through sustainability, healthy local economies, and strengthening community involvement. Ewoldt says, "There is an alternative to the status quo. We don´t have to accept that the best we´re capable of is merely minimizing the harm. We already know what doesn´t work, so let´s start putting the pieces in place to develop what we really want."

Right up until Election Day, November 2nd, campaign headquarters will serve as the site of regular events produced and presented by the Ewoldt campaign, Tucson musicians, filmmakers, artists, groups, other partners and community organizations. Among the ongoing features of campaign headquarters will be exhibitions of art works produced by local Tucson artists, book exchanges and community conversations that start with an honest look at where we are, how we got here, and what we can realistically do about it with the goal of improving quality of life.

Please join us!
