Applauding students and teachers
As a retired teacher from Washington state, where they pay a living wage and fill all 100% of teaching positions with certified teachers, I heartily applaud and salute every student and teacher who let their voices and opinions be heard yesterday in Flagstaff.

Wild & Crazy Things in the Legislature
It’s always nuts when the legislature is in session, especially with Sylvia Allen and Bob Thorpe and now term-limited Brenda Barton– unfortunately our legislators in LD 6 — on the loose.

What We Did in January: Lots!
We reported in our mid-month Newsletter how our precinct committee people hit the ground running at the first monthly PC meeting of the year.

What happens when two branches of our government are missing in action?

Take Action: Stop the Tax Bill
(This article has been updated with additional information and references.) Republicans plan to ram a tax bill through Congress before Thanksgiving. We need to give this as much protest as we gave to their efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Call, write, and fax every day between now and Thanksgiving. Never before has a […]Continue reading
Health Care Sabotage
Trump has made it clear that he doesn’t care about the people he harms in his personal mission to sabotage the ACA. He’s hurting American families in a shameful attempt to score political points and tear down President Obama’s legacy. o After learning that Iowa requested permission to make certain changes to its ACA exchanges, the President went […]Continue reading
