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.
June 27 Meeting
We had a spirited, informative, and fun meeting. We got a great update from Cabinet Secretary of Workforce Solutions, Bill McCamley. We were also treated to two minutes from quite a few candidates running for offices such as city council, school board, municipal judge, and mayor. We heard about several upcoming events, including a concert by ukulele celebrity Jake Shimabukuro (described by Judge Goldbaum as the Eric Clapton of the ukulele). As is tradition for June at PVA, this was a shortened meeting, so we could adjourn to The Amador and celebrate PVA’s 16th year!
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.
PVA doesn’t meet in July. Our next meeting will be Thursday, August 22, 2019, 7 p.m., at Munson Center. Map.
