Giffords sponsors HoCo concert for Dem volunteers

Sergio Mendoza y la Orkesta and Calexico will be the headliners at the Dem Volunteer Party.

CD8 Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords will host a party and BBQ at Hotel Congress for Democratic Party volunteers tomorrow, October 24 from noon to 5:30 p.m.

Democrats are pulling out all the stops to mobilize volunteers and make the last push toward November 2. To get into this free concert, you have to volunteer.

The concert will feature Sergio Mendoza y la Orkesta, Salvador Duran, Calexico, Molehill Orkestrah, and others. Giffords also will address the audience on the patio outside the Hotel Congress at 311 E. Congress Street.

You can sign up to volunteer in advance or at the event.

The Democrats need every vote we can get to take the state and the country back from the crazies who want to destroy it by eliminating Social Security, the minimum wage, the healthcare safety net. Don’t forget to vote!

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.”
