Pima County Interfaith, SAI & Allies Challenge Candidates for State Legislative and County Office
Over 500 local residents attended PCICEO‘s accountability assembly to challenge candidates for county and state office to support “Education and Economic Success for All.” Republican and Democratic candidates for four Arizona legislative districts and two county districts were challenged to a series of specific questions around key priorities of the organization. Issues covered include: education, hunger, SPICE (synthetic marijuana), JobPath workforce development funding, affordable housing and the impact of a $58 million bond for Amphi Unified School District.
The most electric story came from a woman whose son is addicted to a synthetic compound, SPICE. Leaders challenged legislators to change the laws to “get this stuff out of the stores and smoke shops…[and] out of the hands of our children and neighbors!”
