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 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.
