Statement on the Death of Georgie Goode by Arizona Democratic Party Chair Alexis Tameron

June 19, 2015
Arizona Democratic Party Chair Alexis Tameron issued the following statement:
We mourn the passing of Georgie Goode whose contributions to the community for over 60 years have made Phoenix and Arizona a better place.
Georgie’s work as a teacher and school board member improved the education of children from early childhood through high school. In addition to her work with schools, she was a community activist for affordable fair housing and strong neighborhoods. She and her husband Calvin, a longtime Phoenix Councilman, were a “power couple”  for the 55 years of their marriage. We extend our condolences to Calvin, their three sons and six grandchildren.
We are fortunate that Georgie chose to leave her home state of Georgia and move to Arizona in the 1950s. Her contributions to the community will endure for generations.
