Candidate Tom Tzitzura meets PC Democratic Club members

Jan Race

The PC Democratic Club’s special Meet and Greet Social on May 2 introduced about 40 of our members to Tom Tzitzura, Navy veteran and candidate for AZ State House of Representatives, (LD-13). PebbleCreek voters are in Legislative District (LD) 13.

Tom served in the Navy from 1977 until 1999 and retired as a commander after three deployments to Saudi Arabia, all after the first Gulf War. When he left the Navy, he began a second career as a high school science teacher, teaching astronomy, biology, earth sciences and geology. He became involved with the Democratic Party in 2011 and canvassed for Greg Stanton, Kirsten Sinema and Barack Obama in 2012. He held the position of Chair of the Democratic Veterans Caucus during the 2012 campaign and continues his commitment to veterans.

Given his teaching background, Tom has first-hand experience on what is happening with the educational system here in Arizona. Please note that Tom is a Clean Election Candidate which means he will not take money from special interest groups to get elected.
