The LD28 September meeting held on Tuesday, September 19 at the Arizona State Capitol in the House Chambers was an informative session and was well received by those in attendance. Look for the minutes from the meeting to be posted soon.
Arizona Speaker of the House JD Mesnard was the featured speaker, along with Representative Maria Syms and Senator Kate Brophy-McGee. We were given a behind the scenes tour of the House building and a committee hearing enactment.
As you are likely aware, a Constitutional Convention gathering took place at the Arizona State Capitol this past week, and Speaker Mesnard provided an interesting overview regarding the outcome of that gathering and what it means.
We are continuing to gather books for the 19North Librarian’s book list. We will be collecting books at each meeting. The list is comprised of books requested by the librarians of the five schools in the district. The list now shows the requests by school.
The list has been updated to show the books that have already been donated. There were a number of book series or collections that were requested. The list now shows which books within the series have been donated. This is the link: 19North-Library-Wish-List
19 North is the cooperative helping a disadvantaged area at the furthest western boundary of legislative district 28 along 19th Avenue.
