Desert Bones Democratic Forum Set For April 13

The Desert Bones Democratic Club will hold a “meet and greet” event at Palo Verde College In Blythe on Wednesday April 13, 2016 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
According to local party officials, “This will be a time for new members to get acquainted with each other and with our Democratic candidates running in the 2016 Primary election to be held on June 7.”
The Democratic Candidates running in the primary election include Dr. Rita Ramirez-Dean for Congressional District 8, Roger LaPlante for Congressional District 8 and John Pinkerton for Congressional District 8. They are running against each other as well as incumbent Paul Cook, a Republican. Assuming no one candidate gets a majority of the vote, the top two vote-getters in June will face each other in a run off in November at the general election. Scott Markovich is running for Assembly District 33 against incumbent Republican Jay Obernolte and candidates of other parties, all of whom are also also competing for the “top two” positions. While there are other candidates running for these offices, the Desert Bones Meet and Greet event is limited to Democratic candidates only. Democratic officials said the forum will allow each Democratic candidate an uninterrupted five to six minute speech, with a follow-up question and answer period.
Refreshments will be served and entertainment will consist of “old time music” by Ira Guinn and the Handymen.
