American Bridge Releases #Bad4AZ Doug Ducey Ad (video)

Doug Ducey

American Bridge, who recently release a detailed report about Tea Party Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug Ducey, has released a new Ducey web ad with the theme “Bad for Arizona.”

Ironically, a @Bad4AZ social media campaign with memes such as the one above was launched about two weeks ago on Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook (by yours truly). Either great minds think alike or it’s just that obvious that Ducey is bad for Arizona. Spread the word @Bad4AZ or @Good4AZ or on Tumblr here.

From American Bridge…

Former Cold Stone Creamery CEO Doug Ducey will have his first debate with Fred DuVal tonight, and DuVal better be prepared for anything. As in, anything at all, true or false.

Ducey has run his campaign largely on the back of his business record — but his real business record is sprinkled with problems, so he’s prone to misrepresent it.

Ducey has repeatedly bragged about building his ice cream empire without any help from the government. But that doesn’t have a lick of truth to it. The reality is that Cold Stone Creamery got millions of dollars in Small Business Administration loans and defaulted on around 40% of those loans — a remarkably high rate.

So whatever Doug Ducey says tonight [Sept 10 debate] just remember, the real scoop might come out later.

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.
