The June meeting of the SaddleBrooke Democratic Club was held on Tuesday, June 9. The speaker, Ms. Jo Ann Ellison, spoke to issues that will be decided by the U.S Supreme Court by the end of the current session this summer. A multitude of issues concerning gay marriage, states’ rights regarding same sex marriages, the Affordable Care Act and others that will surely impact the lives of members, members’ families and friends were discussed.

For our July 14 meeting we will have Pamela Powers Hannley as our guest speaker. If you follow Blog For Arizona, you already know her.
