Supported Progressive Health Care Reform

In late 2009, Ed Ableser was one of more than 1,000 state legislators to sign a letter entitled "State Legislators for Progressive Health Care Reform". The letter was a project of the Progressive States Network and was developed in consultation with national health care reform advocates, including the AFL-CIO, AFSCME, Community Catalyst, Families USA, Herndon Alliance, National Women's Law Center, Northeast Action, SEIU, and Universal Health Care Action Network. The letter reads in part,[2]

"Failure to pass national comprehensive health reform now will further jeopardize state and local budgets, undermining public services like education, public safety, and transportation infrastructure... We, the undersigned, call on President Obama and the Congress to enact bold and comprehensive health care reform this year – based on these principles and a strong federal-state collaboration – and pledge our support as state legislators and allies in pursuit of guaranteed, high quality, affordable health care for all."

Recall Joe

In 2013 Phoenix Democrats supported the effort to recall Sheriff Joe Arpaio, which was spearheaded by Respect Arizona, and assisted by Citizens for a Better Arizona, headed by Randy Parraz.

The Democrats of s of Legislative District 26 donated the proceeds from a scheduled chili cookoff on Saturday, April 20, 2013 to the recall effort, which has 41 days remaining before its deadline of May 30, when the campaign must turn in all of the signatures it has gathered.

The LD26 webpage reports that the "Guest of Honor" would be Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema. Other local pols on hand include Mesa City Councilman Dennis Kavanagh, state House members Andrew Sherwood and Juan Mendez, and state Senator Ed Ableser.[3]
