‘A bumper crop of psycho-talkers’

“We have a bumper crop of psycho-talkers running for office this year,” says Ed Schultz, lefty radio and TV personality.

You got that right, Ed, especially here in the “meth lab of democracy.”

Please consider voting for sane candidates in November. “Sitting this one out” because your tweaked some issue is a seriously bad idea– unless, of course, you don’t care about Social Security, minimum wage, a healthcare safety net, or public education.

If you do care about these important programs, show the big money right-wingers that voters have the power in Arizona– not out-of-state $$$. Vote Goddard for governor, Deschene for Secretary of State, Rotellini for Attorney General, Cherny for Treasurer and Giffords and Grijalva for Congress. And last but not least– probably one of the most important races– Kotterman for Public Instruction– if you want to save public education in our state.

The Tucson Progressive: Pamela Powers Hannley

I stand on the side of Love. I believe in kindness to all creatures on Earth and the inherent self-worth of all individuals--not just people who agree with me or look like me.

Widespread economic and social injustice prompted me to become a candidate for the Arizona House, representing Legislative District 9 in the 2016 election. My platform focuses on economic reforms to grow Arizona's economy, establish a state-based public bank, fix our infrastructure, fully fund public education, growlocal small businesses and community banks, and put people back to work at good-paying jobs. I also stand for equal rights, choice, and paycheck fairness for women. I am running as a progressive and running clean.

My day job is managing editor for the American Journal of Medicine, an academic medicine journal with a worldwide circulation. In addition, my husband and I co-direct Arizonans for a New Economy, Arizona's public banking initiative. I am a member of the national board of the Public Banking Institute, and I am co-chair of the Arizona Democratic Progressive Caucus, the largest caucus of the Arizona Democratic Party.

I am a published author, photographer, videographer, clay artist, mother, nana, and wife. I have a bachelor's degree in journalism from Ohio State University and a masters in public health from the University of Arizona. I grew up in Amherst, Ohio, but I have lived in Tucson, Arizona since 1981. I am a proud member of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson and the Public Relations Society of America.

My Tucson Progressive blog and Facebook page feature large doses of liberal ideas, local, state, and national politics, and random bits of humor. I also blog at Blog for Arizona and the Huffington Post.
