Radio Bilingue wanted me to chime in on the Arizona Congressional CD 9 race for their Spanish program, and as an independent woman voter — I told the Spanish news program I prefer Andrei Cherny over all of the others.
I have a lot of respect for Phoenix City Councilman Michael Nowakowski, and he endorsed former Clinton White House official Andrei Cherny for Congress. Therefore, I’m signaling to woman and independent registered voters, too, that Andrei Cherny is the best person to fight for Hispanic and middle-class families.
Independent registered voters in Arizona CAN vote in the primary elections. All you have to do is request a Republican or Democratic ballot in order to do so. As independent registered voters, I hope you will request the Democratic ballot to vote in the Democratic Primary election on August 28, 2012 and cast your ballot for Cherny. I believe he will help restore sanity to our State of Arizona.

Nowakowski Endorses Cherny for Congress
May 2, 2012
PHOENIX – Phoenix City Councilman Michael Nowakowski endorsed former Clinton White House official Andrei Cherny for Congress today, explaining that he is the best person to fight for Hispanic and middle-class families.
“Andrei Cherny grew up the son of immigrants who didn’t speak much English, and he understands what it’s like for parents to work two jobs to make ends meet,” said Nowakowski. “I know Andrei will continue to do great things for working families because he shares our values – and he’ll fight for us in Congress.”
In addition to serving on the Phoenix City Council, Nowakowski is the vice president of communications for Radio Campesina, a network of nonprofit Spanish-language radio stations.
Cherny said he’s proud to have Nowakowski’s support.
“Having the backing of such strong, well-respected Arizona leader is an honor,” he said. “I look forward to continuing to work with Councilman Nowakowski to rebuild America’s middle class.”
