We have a magnet on our refrigerator which reads, “When women vote, Democrats win.”
It’s not one hundred percent true, of course. There are plenty of Republican women. Still, it rings true when one considers the importance of basic human rights which are put in jeopardy for an individual simply because she happens to be of the female gender, and the truth that Republicans clearly see women as subhuman (no matter what they say, actions speak far louder than words).
Members of the public can express an opinion on any bill on the Arizona legislative agenda, from the comfort and convenience of any internet connection... if they jump through a few hoops first. The purpose of this post is to walk you through the process of getting into the Request To Speak (RTS) system, so that you can be among those voices.
Who Has Your Vote?
Today is Super Tuesday which means the Presidential race is going to look much clearer tomorrow than it does today. We know many Arizonans are getting their early ballots in the mail and are excited for our Presidential Preference Election in 3 weeks on Tuesday, Mar 22, 2016.
In #LD24 our excitement seams to be mostly split between Hillary and Bernie, but we are huge fans of democracy and are happy to have so many options on our ballot. “2 District leaders. 2 Different endorsements.” exclaimed a recent joint statement from our Chair, C.j. Carenza and 1st Vice Chair, Adrian Fontes “While we may not agree on the same candidate in the Primary, we can agree on one very important issue. Whoever the Democratic nominee for President ends up being, we WILL work together, to get Democrats elected in November. From the State House to the White House, every race is important.”
