Arizona Together Opposed to Prop 102 Campaign hits airwaves statewide

As the four week Election Day home stretch begins, the Arizona Together Opposed to Prop 102 Campaign launched its statewide television campaign asking voters to Vote no again on Prop 102 to keep politicians out of marriage.

The 30-second television commercial, produced locally, focuses on the message of keeping politicians out of marriage and shows headlines of important issues that politicians should be debating rather than marriage, such as immigration; the economy; the mortgage crisis; gas prices; and the cost of groceries. In addition, the voice over asks politicians to trust the people who voted NO on this two years ago.

“We are committed to making sure every Arizona voter understands the real issues behind Prop 102 so that they can make an informed decision on Nov. 4,” said Cynthia Leigh Lewis, treasurer for Arizona Together Opposed to Prop 102. “Voters need to know that Prop 102 is a divisive issue that 49 legislators deceptively referred to this year’s ballot. Voting on the marriage issue is not important to Arizonans; politicians focusing on issues that threaten Arizona’s families are what voters are concerned with.”

According to state law, marriage in Arizona is already defined as between a man and a woman and has been upheld as constitutional by our courts. Given this fact dedicating time to debating marriage is a waste of resources. Politicians need to stay focused on more monumental issues that face our citizens.

The television campaign began today and will run statewide on cable and network television. To view the commercial visit the YouTube link or visit

Arizona Together Opposed to Prop 102 is committed to make certain that Prop 102 is soundly defeated again and are encouraging a NO vote on Prop 102 by Arizona voters on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 4.
