The Progressive Voter Alliance is a clearinghouse and point of contact for advocates of a wide range of progressive issues. We do not endorse specific candidates or causes. For an idea of the issues that have been addressed at PVA meetings, check out the Meeting Recaps. For current issues, come to the next meeting, almost always held on the fourth Thursday of the month.
Voting is essential to our democracy. It’s also important that we advocate for the candidates we believe in. A friend’s recommendation can have a big influence on how we vote.
Encourage your network of friends to vote in this important election – every vote makes a difference.
Reach out to friends and family members who might not normally vote and let them know which candidates you support. This is an important action, even if you don’t personally live in the city of Las Cruces.
What we are asking
Urge those in your Personal Influence Network to vote for the candidate or candidates you believe are most qualified.
The PVA executive committee will determine the next Unified Action at their January 11, 2018, meeting. Suggestions for a Unified Action can be communicated to Cheryl Frank or any member of the Executive Committee. All Unified Actions are indexed here.
October 26 Meeting
At the October meeting, we heard from candidates running for all different sorts of offices: Las Cruces City Council, Municipal Judge, Magistrate Judge, PRC, Lieutenant Governor, Governor. As you can see, PVA is obviously the place to be if you want to get to know the candidates. We also heard about lots of other topics, including articles to read, movies to see, and places to go. You had to be there, but if you weren’t, all events announced at the meeting are posted in the sidebar calendar and the full recap is posted here.
We don’t meet in November or December. Our next meeting will be Thursday, January 25, 2018, 7 p.m., at Munson Center. Map.
