FBI: Powder sent to Raul Grijalva not toxic

“I understand that we’re in a tough election. All of us across the nation are in a tough election. But there is still room for a little bit of civility and a little bit of understanding that this is not the way the system works. The system works by who is going to vote and how we’re going to vote on Nov. 2, not by how you threaten or intimidate people. This is unfortunately a disturbing trend that goes beyond anger. It goes toward hatred and trying to hurt people.”
— Raul Grijalva, as quoted on Politico.com

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.”
