Arizonans Support Election Alignment

Sincere thanks to Councilman DiCiccio for bringing this information to the public arena for discussion.  What could possibly be the motive of the City to withhold poll results from the public?  Poll results which we paid for.  Once again, our employees have shown disdain for taxpayers.

Poll results show voters favor consolidating elections

Councilman Sal DiCiccio to you

A poll conducted by the Arizona League of Cities and Towns shows that Arizonans support aligning elections.  Republicans, Democrats and independents all overwhelmingly support consolidating elections, which would increase voter participation, save taxpayer money and reduce the influence of special interests in local elections  

 
A bill sitting on Governor Brewer's desk, HB2826, would require all cities and towns and counties to align their elections so they are held concurrently with state and national elections.  
 
I heard a rumor that there was a poll out and contacted city staff this morning.  Staff confirmed there was a poll and results were in as of last week -- and there was no plan for releasing the information to the public and the Council, even though taxpayer money was used for it. When I found out about this, I demanded this information be released by 9 this morning.  If information hadn't been spread by word of mouth, I believe these results would have been withheld from you, the taxpayer, and Gov. Brewer until after she had taken action on this bill.  
 
According to Phoenix Government Relations Director Karen Peters, Ken Strobeck, League executive director, was "thinking about" whether to release the poll.   It turns out that pressure to release this poll was strong enough to force the League to take action.  
 

Here are the results: Maricopa and Pima counties support aligning elections.  Arizona  Republicans and Democrats favor consolidating elections by 14%, and independent voters favor consolidating elections by 12%.   View the results here.

 
My best to you and your family,
