#LD9 on June 28: Debate of the Century (video)

Well, the Pima County Democratic Party didn’t exactly say that tomorrow night’s LD9 debate is the “debate of the century.” but they did say this…

Don’t miss two of the most highly anticipated debates this primary season!

LD 9: Rep. Randy Friese, Rep. Matt Kopec, Pamela Powers Hannley

June 286-8pm

Pima Community College NW Campus

7600 N. Shannon Rd, Tucson, AZ

LD 10: Rep. Stefanie Mach, Kirsten Engel, Courtney Frogge

July 286-8pm (Please note new date!)

Pima Community College District Office

4905 E. Broadway, Tucson, AZ

Unlike other years, when the Dems didn’t have much choice in the primary, this year there are several Democratic Party primaries coming up on August 30. In addition to LD9 and LD10, the Pima County Attorney’s office, the Pima County Schools Superintendent, and Pima County Supervisor for District 1 position all have primaries. (I believe there was talk of a signature challenge in the Supes D1 race.)

If you miss tomorrow night’s event, stop by the Nucleus Club on July 14 for an LD9 candidate forum.

If you want to learn more about all of the candidates running for state or Legislative office, check out the Clean Elections Commission’s candidate app. Most candidates have submitted little statements, links to websites, and photos. Very handy. You can also submit questions for the Clean Elections debates via the app. (It is currently available for iPhone and iPad, but the website said a Droid version is coming.)

The Clean Elections debates are recorded. Here is the LD2 debate from June 21.

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.
