It is well past time for some good news, and here it is:
In August of 2016, approximately 87,000 people voted in the Democratic primary in Pima County.
Last month, DESPITE COVID, nearly 145,000 people voted in the Dem primary.
Read that again; it’s worth it. The turnout was historic.
If we can build on this, if we can get the message out that August was the warm up vote and October’s mail-in ballot is the Big Vote, anything is possible.
Team Conover is working night and day to take the overwhelming army of goodwill and support that YOU built and pay it forward to the candidates and causes important to us. Using what resources I can gather, I am still running field operations with Trace Gallagher to help other candidates. I hope to return to Spanish language radio for my unique opportunity to continue to talk about criminal justice reform in Spanish.
Why all this hard work? Criminal Justice Reform will take a village!
Here’s how it starts to come together, and this is only Part One:
Meet your Board of Supervisors candidates who will help reframe the general fund toward public health and away from incarceration.
Meet your legislative candidates who will help us work to expunge records, and move us away from the War on Drugs that fill the demands of the private prison industry.
Meet my future partner in Maricopa. Let’s get her elected to the County Attorney’s Office. History in the making, if we have two reformers from the two largest counties in Arizona.
Here’s how you can help!
I have joined the Mayor as a surrogate for the coordinated campaign for our next President Joe Biden, but I want to make sure while we are reaching voters for Biden/Harris and Captain Kelly, we are educating that our local candidates are the stars who truly make our world go ’round.
