‘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 J. Powers

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 focused on economic reforms to grow Arizona’s economy, establish a state-based public bank, fix our infrastructure, fully fund public education, grow local small businesses and community banks, and put people back to work at good-paying jobs.

In the Arizona House, I was a strong voice for fiscal responsibility a moratorium on corporate tax breaks until the schools were fully funded, increased cash assistance to the poor, expansion of maternal healthcare benefits, equal rights, choice, unions, education at all levels and protecting our water supply.

After three terms, I retired from the Arizona Legislature in January 2023 but will continue to blog and produce my podcast “A View from the Left Side.”
