Cycling for Goddard– tonight

Don’t miss the Tucson Community Bike Ride tonight, October 12. The cycling for Goddard folks are going to ride tonight to show their support for Terry Goddard’s candidacy for governor of Arizona.

If you want to participate, bring your bike, helmet, light, and Goddard paraphernalia (t-shirt, signs, etc.) and meet in front of the Starbucks on University, near Main Gate at 7:30 p.m. For added effect, decorate your bike with extra lights or other bling. Extra Goddard signs will be available. See you there!

    I’m out in Cochise County so I won’t be able to make it, but here’s some news to motivate you:
    The latest poll has Goddard within striking distance. The Rocky Mountain Poll, conducted Oct. 1-10, has Goddard within the poll’s 4.2% margin of error, Brewer 38% Goddard 35% among all registered voters with 20% undecided. Brewer led by 20 points in a Rocky Mountain Poll conducted in July. Goddard is leading Brewer in Pima County (46% to 29%)but trails in populous Maricopa country (41% to 36%) and in the rural counties, (28% to 26%). Goddard also has a huge lead among Latino voters with 60% and only 13% backing Brewer. Story at CNN.
    Arizona deserves and needs better than Jan Brewer, Go Terry!

    I sure hope you’re right!
    I think the community bike ride will be fun. We are trying to stir up interest in voting amongst students and other downtown types who participate in this event. Watch for video– hopefully tomorrow.

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.”
