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.
PVA’s Legislative Response Team (LRT) weighed in on critical issues under consideration during the legislative session in Santa Fe. Team members were informed of the most important bills, the most important people to call or email, and the best time to do it. It was a lot of work, and we are taking a break until the April 23 meeting.
The PVA executive committee will determine the next Unified Action at their April 9 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.
The PVA met on March 26 at Munson Center. Four legislators were present to give their candid assessment of the just-finished session in Santa Fe. The two-minute talks were as diverse as usual and included El Paso Electric’s longing for a rate increase, the possibility of Adobehenge, public transportation, coyotes, predatory lending, getting out the vote, protecting our brand new national monument, the recall, and New Mexico’s $4.5 billion in unspent funds. There were candidates looking ahead to 2016 and updates from the school board, the county assessor’s office, the county clerk’s office, the city council, and the city commission.
Events announced at the meeting are listed in the sidebar calendar. The complete meeting recap will be posted ASAP.
The next meeting of the PVA will be Thursday, April 23, 2015, at Munson Center. Map
