dark money

It’s no secret that the Koch Brothers and other dark money, out-of-state donors have spent millions to buy offices for Tea Party Republican candidates in Arizona this year.

The struggle for control of our state is a David and Goliath epic. David– armed with citizen volunteers knocking on doors, making phone calls, blogging, Tweeting, Facebooking, and digging deep to donate– faces the giant Goliath– armed with an arsenal of clever lies, disgusting commercials, and seemingly limitless amounts of cash from corporate donors.

Who are you going to believe? Your friends and neighbors who are working to make Arizona a better place for all of us. Or big corporations who buy candidates in order to take over our government.

If dark money wins in Arizona and other states, citizens lose.

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.
