"Progressive candidates"

According to Joe Bernick writing in the Peoples World, November 14, 2018.

Across the state, many progressive candidates participated and won in local races. Progressive school board members won reelection, notably, Adelita Grijalva at the Tucson Unified School District, Patrick Morales in Tempe Elementary, and Eva Carrillo Dong, unopposed at Sunnyside in Tucson.[2]

Communist Party?

From a Joelle Fishman report to the Communist Party USA National Committee meeting on November 17th 2018.

Our concept of the revolutionary process and building broad unity against the right and for peoples needs is more relevant than ever, as is the importance of a larger Communist Party.

In 2020 Tony Pecinovsky will be on the ballot for Alderman in St. Louis. Perhaps there are coalition tickets forming in other cities where we can put forward one of our own.
In Texas we had five candidates in the primaries who got a quarter million votes for US Senate and plans to run again. In the general election Penny Morales Shaw ran for county commissioner in a Republican area and got 45% of the vote in a great campaign with union support.
In Arizona, in addition to races at every level, in Tempe Patrick Morales came in first for re-election to the School Board.[3]

Patrick Morales far right

THANK YOU! Final vote counts were completed last night and we won by a margin of 10,251 votes -- proof that the force of our community is stronger than political cynicism and more powerful than millions of dollars of the negative advertising against us.

Eddy Morales connection

Ernesto Fonseca January 13 2019·


Celebrating with Eddy Morales who was sworn in on January 8th as one of the new City of Gresham Councilors. In addition he has supported a lot of our AZ Dems to get elected. Kyrsten Sinema Patrick Morales Arizona Democratic Party David Garcia — with Eddy Morales.


State Representative Bob Thorpe, Flagstaff Republican, in 2018 introduced a Bill, HB 2277, seeks to designate "American free-market capitalism" as the state's official political-economic system.

"Thorpe's lack of awareness about Americans under 40 shows us just how far the Republican party is removed from what is actually happening," said Patrick Morales, the 25-year-old organizing director of Progressive Democrats of Arizona. "To assume anyone under 40 just doesn't understand politics is to assume you will still be in office after they vote."[5]


"Socialism is inherent in the American fabric," pointed out Patrick Morales, a self-described leftist who also sits on the Tempe school board. Along with public education, institutions like the post office, Social Security, Medicare, and public libraries are socialist in theory, if not in name.

If socialists actually were running the #RedForEd movement, it might look a lot more radical. Morales, the Tempe Elementary School Board member, was critical of the teachers' decision to hold "walk-ins," which he views as counter-revolutionary. Just prior to the strike starting on April 26, teachers wore red and rallied before going to work as normal.

"You're walking into the system that's oppressing you," Morales said.

He also thinks that the leaders of the movement should have pushed Governor Doug Ducey and the legislature further, and not been so quick to accept a deal.

The typical labor negotiation tactic is "asking for a $100 and getting $50," he said. "But they’re getting $20."

Plus, he said, the teachers should have enlisted more community support. What if, he suggested, all the unionized workers at Sky Harbor had walked out in solidarity, completely shutting down the airport?[6]
