Raging Grannies, Peace Fair 2010.
Raging Grannies, Peace Fair 2010.

The Tucson Peace Fair is happening this Saturday, Feb. 27, at the Reid Park Bandshell. My husband Jim and I have tabled at the Peace Fair for many years first with the Progressive Democrats of America and last year as Arizonans for a New Economy (Arizona’s public banking initiative and a member of the Tucson Peace Center).

We will be at the Peace Fair again this year with our public banking materials and new flier What Wall Street Costs America (and Arizona). What does Wall Street cost America: a lot! According to the state’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR), Arizona pays $312 million per year in interest on Wall Street debt, and the state’s total debt service is over $800 million per year! To learn more about the Public Banking Institute’s What Wall Street Costs America project, go here.

We will also have petitions, $5 Clean Elections Contributions forms, literature, and buttons (!) for my campaign for the Arizona House, representing LD9. If you live in LD9, I hope you’ll stop by support my campaign with a signature and a $5.

The Peace Fair is always a fun event full of good people advocating for worthwhile causes, and the weather has been gorgeous. The fair lasts from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Come on down for a music, food, dancing, conversation and a stroll around the bandshell with friendly people– particularly old hippies (like us).

Stop by our booth for a chat in the shade. Let’s get to know each other.
