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.

About

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.
