With early ballots arriving in the mail the next couple of days, we have included links to all the articles pertaining to profiles compiled on the federal, state, and local Democratic nominees running for office this year. Please review them so they can help you make the best decision when voting these next two and a half weeks.
Furthermore, please consider the following when deciding whether or not to vote this election:
- If you think we can do better than one in four children in Arizona living in poverty, then vote in November.
- If you think we can do better than being near the bottom in the nation in education funding, then vote in November.
- If you agree with gubernatorial candidate David Garcia that “no one should be left behind,” then vote in November.
- If you agree with Superintendent of Public Instruction candidate Kathy Hoffman that the “future of Arizona is in our schools,” then vote in November.
- If you agree with Attorney General candidate January Contreras that public service should be about the “little guy and democracy” and the people, especially the most vulnerable (like those with pre-existing health conditions), need to be protected, then vote in November.
- If you agree with Treasurer candidate Mark Manoil that local and state Arizona economic development would be better served with local community banks than Wall Street banks, then vote in November.
- If you agree with Mining Inspector candidate Bill Pierce that uranium should not be mined for in the Grand Canyon where any contamination into the Colorado River would make that water undrinkable for millions of citizens across several states, then vote in November.
- If you want Arizona to be the solar capital of the country and greater utility investments steered towards solar, water, and wind like Corporation Commission candidate Kiana Sears, then vote in November.
- If you want the stench of Dark Money removed from the public arena as most of the Democratic local and state candidates want, then vote in November.
- If you want public servants like this year’s Democratic candidates that listen to their constituents and show up to public forums and debates, then vote in November.
- If you want our borders secured, like our Democratic candidates want, with smart technology and smart policies geared towards capturing criminals, drug dealers, and human traffickers, then vote in November.
- If you want all civil rights protected, including the right for women to choose and the newly recognized rights for members of the LGBTQ community, then vote this November.
All elections are important. The 2018 elections may be more so because if the forces of reaction, intolerance, and backwardness are allowed to prevail, it may be a long time before we recover.
Please Remember To Vote In November.
