I am Juan Mendez an Arizona Democratic State Rep. I recently won my Senate primary and have no opponent in the General Election. Ask Me Anything about AZ Politics and how you can help me keep moving Arizona forward.
Hi Reddit, I'm a long time redditor and look forward to sharing my experiences growing up in Arizona, how I got into politics and what I think about the state of our Democracy.
I am honored to be endorsed by Our Revolution - https://ourrevolution.com/candidates/juan-mendez
I won my August State Senate primary and move on to the general election without any competition. We can talk about Arizona politics but I would love to ask for your help Moving Arizona Forward https://www.movingazforward.com
Arizona is the only state in the U.S. with the potential to flip the Republican control of our State Senate or at least tie 15 Democrats - 15 Republicans. I am a Clean Elections politician - I don't take money from lobbyist or the wealthy. I raise my funding through small dollar donations from people in my district that get matched with public funding. But I need your help to get more progressive candidates elected in Arizona with this 2016 election. Please donate what you can to a PAC I created to move Arizoan forward - https://www.movingazforward.com
Today is also the last day to register to vote in Arizona. http://servicearizona.com/ Please help me make sure everyone in Arizona knows that we have the potential to raise the min wage (we're getting $8.05 here), legalize adult use of cannabis, elect Arizona's first Women US Senator and I'll be Arizona's first open atheist State Senator. You could help us win a Democratic controlled State Senate and I could end up chairing a State Senate committee.
Our early ballots get mailed out either this week or the next, help me raise enough money to educate voters about which candidates will help us win a Democratic State Senate Majority in Arizona!
