Arizona’s 2010 election: Counties still counting…

The Associated Press and other national media outlets have declared Congressman Raul Grijalva the winner in Arizona’s Congressional District 7 race. Although Congresswoman Gabrielle Gifford has increased her lead over Tea Party challenger Jesse Kelly, the CD8 race is still too close to call.

Three propositions— 110, 112, and 203– also are still too close to call. Prop 110 would make it easier to sell or lease state lands. Prop 112 would shorten the length of time for citizens to file petitions. Prop 203 would make medical marijuana legal in Arizona.

Prop 203 gained some ground, but there are still thousands of ballots to count. According to Arizona Public Media this morning, counting will continue through the weekend. Counties have until November 12 to finalize their election tallies.

For up-to-date results on the propositions, check out this link at the Arizona Daily Star.

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.”
