Yep. I'm 32.

That's right. I've officially made it around the sun for the 32nd time. I decided to become active in politics when I was 27, and I really can't believe it's been 5 years already. I'm not sure where the time went, but I'm certain that it was well-spent.

As you know, the D26 Democrats are taking the lead on organizing a GOTV rally in West Mesa. Scheduled for Saturday, October 25th, we are targeting RAE voters from all over D26 and are going to invite them several times to the "Rally to Move #AZForward." The Rally's goal is to energize and motivate these fellow Democrats that don't typically vote in midterm years to cast their ballot in 2014. Even a modest increase in RAE turn out has the potential to swing the statewide and congressional races in our favor. In short we have an opportunity to help do something big.

Of course, these things cost money. Between the venue, food, city fees, advertising and having literature printed, D26 and the Krysten Sinema campaign are going to be making a significant investment in getting RAE voters invited as many times as possible between now and the 25th.

There are moments when being LD chair is very trying, and moments when it's very rewarding. Playing a significant role in the Pearce recall, sponsoring our local DREAMERs DACA applications, raising money for our friend Randall in his time of need, embarrassing the D26 Republicans by tripling the haul of their AR-15 fundraiser, and being the only LD to have a net gain of PCs from 2012 to 2014 are just some things that make me particularly proud. Those successes were honestly some of the most rewarding in my life. Will you help make my 32nd birthday another one?

For my 32nd birthday, I'm looking for 32 people to donate $32 to D26. That would raise $1024 today, and be very helpful in making sure we have the resources we need to fire on all cylinders. Of course, 100% of the money donated will be used at turning out RAE voters right here in D26.

Not a day goes by without someone thanking me for work I do, and I really appreciate that. Truth is for all the ups and downs, I couldn't imagine not doing it, and I couldn't do it with the help of so many people. So, I'm asking you to help out once more, *|FNAME|*. Will you be one of D26's 32?

Thank you,

Randy Keating
Chair - D26 Democrats

PS: If not for me, then do it for the cute kid I once was!
