I also want to take the time here to thank all of the election integrity activists who are working night and day to raise public awareness to this issue, and apply public pressure to get elected officials to take it seriously. Thanks, from the bottom of all of our hearts.
ACTION: a thank you
Please send co-sponsors Steve Gallardo firstname.lastname@example.org and Phil Lopes email@example.com , both Democrats, a brief note of thanks.
Please send Karen Johnson and Jack Harper your appreciation for working across the aisle with Ted Downing on this TRANS-PARTISAN American civic issue. (firstname.lastname@example.org * email@example.com )
On our website, www.progressiveazdems.org in the section entitled “Support our elected progressives,” there is a button entitled : “track bills, contact legislators.” Click that, and when you get to the legislative page, there is a link entitled, “How do I find my Legislators?” simply enter your zip code, and “voila: your elected representatives! Simple. (Same process works on the Senate page.)
And, if you believe your representative or senator might be interested in joining the progressive caucus, please invite them to go to our website to sign up for updates. Have them contact Rep. Downing about furthering the legislative progressive caucus, and contact me ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) to be added under “Profiles in courage” on the AZDPC website.
Soon, we will be asking for regular updates from these progressive elected officials, through our caucus, to all of you, their consituents, on the important work they do on our behalf. This way we can provide support with research, issue promotion, public meetings, and the like.
Although she is brand-new on the job, beyond congratulating her on her new post and offering her any assistance she may need, I hope you will also ask her to work with Senators Johnson and Harper to move this issue forward. email@example.com
In addition to working on other issues of interest to us as progressives, on electoral reform, Paula has has already signed on to co-sponsor a bill allowing a mail-in-ballot only election by any jursidiction (SB1108), a bill to institute a permanent list of persons who wish to vote by mail (SB1106), and one to require that if someone requests an early ballot in one election, they automatically be sent for the following two.
Please contact them and request they also work with Republican Senators Johnson and Harper to co-sponsor strong election integrity legislation. firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com
Thanks so much for all you do.
In peace and solidarity,
Gerry and Sherry
