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 June 2018 Unified Action is to:
Reach out to the people in your Personal Influence Network and urge them to vote YES on the Las Cruces GO Bonds & Recall Reform Amendments in the Las Cruces Special Election
Sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Greater Las Cruces, www.lwvglc.org
Voting is essential to our democracy. A friend’s recommendation can have a big influence on how we vote.
Even if you don’t live in Las Cruces, encourage your network of friends (many of whom do live in the City of Las Cruces or know others who do) to vote YES on the issues in this important election – every vote makes a difference.
The special election will be conducted by mail only, and ballots will be sent out July 24 and must be received by the county clerk’s office, in person or by mail, by 7 pm on Tuesday, August 21.
We will send out the Unified Action again once ballots have been received by voters and our contacts with them will make a difference.
What we are asking
Urge those in your Personal Influence Network to vote YES on the Go Bonds & Recall Reform.
See the full issue here.
The PVA executive committee will determine the next Unified Action at their August 9, 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.
June 28 Meeting
Being the first meeting after the primary election, many candidates attended the June PVA meeting to express their appreciation to voters and people who supported them. PVA continues to be the place to be if you want to get to know the candidates. We also heard about other topics, including the nuclear waste storage facility proposed for Southern NM, a “Brown & Green” coalition that has formed to partner on immigration and environmental issues at the border, ways to volunteer on campaigns, weekly community supper at the MountainView Coop, what’s new with the Soil & Water district, and updates from El Paso Electric intervenors. 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.
Our next meeting will be Thursday, August 23, 2018, 7 p.m., at Munson Center. Map.
