It is again with heavy heart that we share the passing of another of our amazing colleagues, Susan Popovich, whose life ended too soon.  Susan was killed Sunday when her car was struck by big rig.  Several of our colleagues are heading to Santa Fe to help with all that needs to be done, as Susan's surviving relative, a niece, lives in New York.  Condolences may be sent to Amy Chato Conlon, 61 W 73rd St., Apt B, New York, NY 10023.  This is a link to an article written by one of Susan's colleagues in the Democratic Party in Santa Fe which sums up what we all knew and loved about Susan https://retakeourdemocracy.org/2017/08/29/sf-dem-chair-susan-popovich-has-died-tragically-and-too-soon/.  Please see the Member to Member page for continuing information regarding memorial services and pictures.
