Former U.S. State Department Public Diplomacy Officer and Tucson native Joshua Polacheck has been PCDP’s new Executive Director as of July 2020.
“My focus is on electing Democrats in November as well as fundraising, party-building and strengthening PCDP’s ties with traditionally underrepresented communities,” Polacheck said. “I believe this election is about the soul of our city, our county, our state, our nation. People are suffering and losing faith in our institutions. We have a unique opportunity this November as the Democratic Party to earn back the voters’ faith.”
Though the Pima Dems HQ is still largely virtual, operations continue apace. Polachek installed security cameras and is servicing the A/C system and computers. Leila Counts and Polacheck are at HQ Monday-Saturday, with a skeleton crew of volunteers in the afternoons.

When we send Capt. Mark Kelly to the U.S. Senate, Arizona will have an all-Democratic U.S. Senate delegation for the first time since 1952!
We will flip the Arizona House and Senate – shoutout to LD11! – sweep all the countywide offices – shoutout to Laura Conover, Chris Nanos, Gabriella Cázares-Kelly, Brian Bickel, Suzanne Droubie, and Dustin Williams! – and the Board of Supervisors – shoutout to Rex Scott, Matt Heinz, Sharon Bronson, Steve Diamond, and Adelita Grijalva!”
