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 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.”
