Secretary of State Ken Bennett announces statewide General Election town halls
Non-partisan forums designed to inform public on ballot propositions
PHOENIX – Wondering about the 10 propositions on the Arizona ballot this fall? Got a question on one of the measures dealing with health care reform, state trust land, medical marijuana or the state budget?
Stay tuned, because the Secretary of State’s Office may soon be coming to your community with its 2010 General Election Town Hall series. Secretary of State Ken Bennett has announced about two-dozen town halls across Arizona. The events are free-of-charge and open to the public as an opportunity for voters to learn about the ballot propositions and pose questions to neutral and informed staff members provided by our office.
Audience members also will hear from supporters and opponents of the ballot measures, with both sides given the opportunity to make brief statements and take questions from the crowd.
“Critical issues are at stake this General Election,” Secretary Bennett said. “These town halls are a wonderful opportunity for Arizona voters to become better informed about the ballot propositions they’ll be voting upon.”
These Community town halls began on Sept. 22 in Phoenix, and will continue through Oct. 25, with forums planned all over the state.
The Tucson town hall is scheduled for September 28, 7 p.m. at El Pueblo Neighborhood Center, Building 9 (multipurpose room), 101 W. Irvington Road.
Please turn out for this town hall to find out how to vote on the ten state-wide propositions (106, 107, 109, 110, 111, 112, 113, 203, 301, 302) on November 2nd. I blogged about the LWV meeting last week about these propositions (which included short descriptions of each, click here).
And don’t forget to learn about the City of Tucson Propositions 400 (proposed half cent sales tax increase) and 401 (proposed 80% salary increase for Mayor/Council & other City charter changes including increasing the power of the Mayor & the City Manager)…at other town halls/forums, before the General Election.
There’s one this week, also at El Pueblo:
The Southside Neighborhood Association Presidential Partnership (SNAPP) has scheduled a debate on both Propositions 400 and 401 for:
Thursday, September 30th
6:00 – 8:00PM
