Election candidate

On a Saturday in October 2017, several dozen people filed into a dimly lit Phoenix union hall with a scuffed floor. A few wore red shirts decorated with a rose emblem and a slogan: "Solidarity in the Southwest." Most were in their 20s and 30s. They picked up clipboards on their way to a folding chair.

Phoenix’s DSA chapter was officially recognized in July. The group has a core group of 40-50 members who attend weekly meetings.

One of the DSA members at the canvass training was LaDawn Stuben, a 39-year-old professional pastry chef running as a Democrat for the Arizona House of Representatives. She's running in the 18th district, which encompasses west Chandler and parts of Tempe and Mesa.

"It's a solidly purple, if not leaning-blue district, I believe," she told Phoenix New Times.

Stuben is the legislative action director for the Phoenix DSA. She's also a pastry chef at Liberty Market and owns a small business selling pastries at the Chandler farmers market.

Stuben has never run for office before, but got inspired this summer after hearing Sanders speak at the People's Summit, a progressive political convention held in Chicago. During his speech, the country's most prominent democratic socialist asked everyone who was willing to run for local office to stand up. People rose to their feet in response, and Stuben, surprising herself, stood up, too.[2]
