Government of, by and for the People

Tell Democratic lawmakers to hold the line against Republican attacks on Clean Elections and Voters. Make sure progressives are heard loud and clear at the legislature. Tell lawmakers:
  1. Oppose Representatives Mesnard's and Boyer's attempts to refer anti-Clean Elections measures to the ballot.
  2. Support legislation that strengthens Clean Elections.
  3. Oppose any HB2593 fix to block an emergency clause.
  4. Oppose the repeal of HB2305.

Ask candidates to return excessive campaign cash 

Today the Arizona Court of Appeals released its expanded opinion regarding the injunction on HB2593 which illegally raised campaign contribution amounts above the voter set limits in the Clean Elections Act.  Although the court didn't require candidates to return campaign cash that exceeded these limits, we must demand they respect Arizona voters and insist they return the excessive amounts.

A 40+ page amendment to HB2305 (citizens initiatives) will likely be voted on in conference committee today or tomorrow that includes the anti-voter provisions from SB1261 andSB1003.

ACT NOW with one call and one email to help stop this sneak attack on working Arizona voters.

Call Senator John McComish at 602-926-5898 and tell him:   

"Reject any amendments to HB2305 that aren't in Title 19 like those proposed before last week's cancelled conference committee that attack voters on the permanent early voting list with changes to Title 16. Follow the legislative rules that require amendments to be germane to a bill and PLEASE, stop attacking voters.

Three Priority Calls and One Email.
Please call and leave a message TODAY!


Call #1:  Senate President Biggs 602-926-4371 - "Please DO NOT third read HB2593. Only special interest with lots of money support this bill and gain by it. Working Arizona Voters don't support it and certainly can't afford to write checks for $5000 and $10000 as allowed in the bill. Please use your leadership to stop HB2593."

Call #2: Senator Bob Worsley 602-926-5760 -  "Please VOTE NO on HB2593. Stand with voters, not special interest donors, many of whom supported your primary opponent in 2012. We can't afford to write checks for $5000 and $10000 as allowed in HB2593."

Call #3: Senator Rich Crandall 602-926-3020 - "Please VOTE NO on HB2593. You understand that the real problem candidates face is the lack of disclosure by Independent Expenditures and the corporations who attack them with half truths and outright lies. HB2593 does nothing to fix this. Please vote NO and stand with voters."
