GOP After Hours event with Rick Grinnell (Mayoral write-in candidate)by Carolyn Classen on Jul. 27, 2011, under Life, Politics
GOP MAYORAL WRITE-IN CANDIDATE RICK GRINNELL AT PIMA GOP AFTER HOURS
Wednesday, July 27th from 6 to 7:30 PM
From Pima County GOP newsletter:
The next Pima GOP After Hours on Wednesday, July 27th will feature Mayoral write-in candidate Rick Grinnell – “2 Ns, 2 Ls.” Rick will talk about his vision for Tucson and the specifics on writing him in on your primary ballot. For example: Be sure to fill in the bubble to the left of where you write in his name. If Rick Grinnell is written-in on the Republican primary ballot just 1060 times, he will be on the general ballot.
For more information on the write-in process and how you can help Rick’s campaign you’re going to want to be here.
Where’s here? The Pima GOP After Hours takes place at your Pima GOP Headquarters, 5447 E 5th Street, suite 100 (just west of Craycroft on the north side of 5th Street) in Tucson.
City Council candidates Jennifer Rawson (for Ward 2) and Tyler Vogt (for Ward 4) will be attending and speaking at this GOP event as well.
Last August 2010, in the LD 28 State Senate race Republican Greg Krino got 1519 write-in votes to qualify for the November election, to challenge State Senator Paula Aboud (according to Pima County elections results). Krino only needed 214 write-in votes, so getting 1060 write-in votes (City-wide) for Grinnell should not be a problem for the Pima GOP.
Daryl Peterson, a construction worker just entered the race last Thursday as a Republican Mayoral write-in candidate, just prior to the deadline for filing.
Assuming Grinnell or Peterson will get on the General election November ballot, either will face off with the winner of the Democratic primary (Jonathan Rothschild facing opposition from 3 write-in candidates– David Karr, Rich Kessler or Joseph Maher, Jr.), and either Green candidate Dave Croteau or Mary DeCamp.
