Observer Recommendations - November 4 Election

For those going to the polls Tuesday, November 4 voters will have many decisions to make before cast their ballots in the upcoming election: from the presidential contest to see who will inherit the complete mess created by the “Bush Crime Family,” Congressional races, ballot propositions, the Arizona Legislature, county posts to local school boards, many posts and questions will have to be answered and fill, as mandating by federal and state law.

With that, the editorial staff of the Observer has compiled a list of recommendations for contested elections (with respectes to state Senator Linda Lopez, state Senator Paula Aboud, state Representatives David Bradley and Steve Farley, Pima County Supervisor Richard Elias and Pima County Recorder F. Ann Rodriguez, individuals with good records of service and support), basing the choices on statements, actions, position papers and voting records on the issues of concern to the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender), HIV/AIDS and straight supportive communities.
