Federal/County Legislative Alert

Coconino County Democratic Party with Democrats of the Red Rocks issues these calls to action.

FEDERAL

PLEASE CONTACT OUR SENATORS FOR THE BELOW ITEM:

1.  Impeachment Conviction:  Most Democratic Party senators have expressed their desire to convict President Trump under the Article of Impeachment allegation of “Incitement to Insurrection”.  Senator Mark Kelly has stated he is open to the idea but Sen. Kirsten Sinema has remained quiet.  Please contact both Senators to urge a conviction after the Senate trial, and to bar Pres. Trump from holding public office.

Script For Phone Calls  
“Hi. My name is (your full name). I’m a constituent living in (your zip code). I’m calling to strongly encourage (Senator Sinema / Senator Kelly) to publicly call for conviction in President Trump’s impeachment trial and to ban him from holding public office for his incitement of the violent insurrection at the US Capitol. What is the Senator’s position? Will they make a public statement today?”   
Sen. Sinema (202) 224-4521; Sen. Kelly (202) 224-2235,  Tag the senators @senatorsinema, @senmarkkelly and share your experience/responses on social media

PLEASE CONTACT REP O’HALLARAN FOR THESE NEXT THREE ITEMS:

1.  Statehood for Washington, D.C.  Support HR51 providing for the “Admission of the State of Washington DC into the Union.”  This is a part of the DNC national platform and would enfranchise a population that exceeds the population of two other states and is predominately African American. HR51 and a similar bill last year was co-sponsored by 4 of the 5 Arizona’s representatives, but not our Rep. Tom O’Halleran.  (O’Halleran did vote in favor of statehood in the last session but did not co-sponsor).  Contact Rep. O’Halleran to ask that he join as a co-sponsor of HR51 and actively support its adoption. Email Rep. O’Halleran at ohalleran.house.gov or call at (202) 225-3361, or Flagstaff office 928 286-5538

2.  Support HR 29. “Supporting the Teaching of Climate Change in Schools.” Sponsored by Rep. Barbara Lee (CA). Email Rep. O’Halleran at ohalleran.house.gov or call at (202) 225-3361, or Flagstaff office 928 286-5538

3.  Support HR 325.  “To Provide For Increases In The Federal Minimum Wage To $15 An Hour.”  Email Rep. O’Halleran at ohalleran.house.gov or call at (202) 225-3361, or Flagstaff office 928 286-5538
