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.
September 26 Meeting
We had a spirited, informative, and fun (marathon) meeting! There was lots to talk about. County Clerk Amanda Lopez-Askin and Deputy County Clerk Lindsey Bachman gave us the lowdown on Ranked Choice Voting and our new consolidated election. We were treated to two minutes from quite a few candidates running for offices such as city council, senate, school board, municipal judge, and Soil & Water Conservation District. Representatives from Rep. Torres-Small’s office reported Xochitl’s current position on the impeachment inquiry of Donald Trump. Just a few of the other topics we were informed about were an upcoming climate change seminar, KTAL’s anniversary party/fundraiser, an upcoming vote on PACE, the Pride Parade, and the movement to start a NM State Bank.
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, October 24, 2019, 7 p.m., at Munson Center. Map.
