From Kayenta to Washington

Written by 

Arizona Democratic voters have a choice. They may  elect a Democratic candidate who lost her seat to a TEA Party Republican,  because she voted with Republicans more often than any other Democrat in Congress. This is Ann Kirkpatrick. She voted YES on extending the Bush tax cuts.

Arizona Democratic voters have a choice. Wenona Benally Baldenegro is the other Democratic candidate for Arizona Congressional District One. She was born and raised in Kayenta, Arizona, where she graduated High School as salutatorian. A child from a single parent household in an economically depressed community, she went on to achieve not only a college education, but two Masters Degrees and a law degree from Harvard. Despite her advanced education, she has not forgotten her roots. Education such as this guarantees employment in a Wall Street legal firm. Rather than seeking wealth from the private sector, Wenona chooses to serve the People of Arizona by providing quality, affordable healthcare, protecting Social Security and Medicare, protecting our environment, and by investing in clean, sustainable energy. Despite the Arizona Democratic Party’s favoring Ann Kirkpatrick, and discouraging donors from giving monies to Wenona, then broadcasting her not being electable, because of her being unable to raise money, Wenona Benally Baldenegro tenaciously clings to her grass roots campaign, focused on winning. It is this tenacity, with her working class roots and stellar education, which make Wenona the superior candidate.

Arizona Democratic voters have a choice, and the choice is clear. Elect a candidate who  ignored the needs of the People and served corporate interests while in office, or install Wenona Benally Baldenegro as the Representative from Congressional District One. Have a leader who will stand up for working people, seniors, and middle class families, and protect our fragile environment, and who will restore our image as proud Arizonans. Representative Raul Grijalva  endorsed Wenona because she will fight for fair wages and workers rights. She endorses the DREAM Act, opposes SB 1070,  and will protect Social Security and Medicare. Wenona supports FAIR TRADE, not free trade, and is against outsourcing US jobs. Arizonans have a choice. The choice is clear. Continue and exacerbate disenfranchisement and neglect, or move toward a brighter, happier future. The choice is yours.

Join "Countdown to Coverage" Share TPP with your Daily Newspaper

CWA devised a simple plan for which they were uniquely suited: drag TPP out of the shadows and into the light - one city at a time - using a medium they understand intimately: Daily Newspapers!

Two CWA members - Dave Felice in Denver, CO and Madelyn Elder in Portland, OR have started the ball rolling. We just need to keep up the momentum leading up to a big day of petition deliveries.

Hand Deliver a Letter to your Rep on Jobs

If your Representative is not currently a cosponsor of HR 1000 they may not completely understand how important full employment is to your community; click on your state at the bottom of this page to see all the cosponsors in your state. Nothing sends a stronger message to a Congressional member than a personal visit to a district office by a voter with a written request. Phone calls and emails are incredibly important but nothing gets attention like a personal visit. Our Educate Congress page has information and a sample letter. Print the letter, sign it, deliver it.
