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.
The August Unified Action is to contact members of the Public Regulation Commission and urge them to do the right thing with regard to El Paso Electric’s rate case. Specifically, require EPE to use 21st century technology to manage energy demand.
Please see the Unified Action page for everything you need to know about the rate case. Make your voice heard.
The PVA executive committee will determine the next Unified Action at their September 10 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.
There were plenty of candidates—new faces and familiar ones. There were jaw-dropping facts about El Paso Electric and their desired rate hike and very encouraging facts about teen birth rate trends for Doña Ana County. The AdobeHenge Trails Project is going strong, and you can follow them on Facebook (of course) and Twitter (impressive). The Las Cruces Symphony Orchestra is bringing a pop concert under the stars. That’s the tip of the iceberg.
All events announced at the August meeting are posted in the sidebar calendar. The complete meeting recap will be posted asap.
The next meeting of the PVA will be Thursday, September 24, 2015, at Munson Center. Map.
