Kyrsten Sinema is the right choice for AZ voters in Congressional District 9. She has been a tireless advocate for the poor and middle class in Arizona, education, improving the economic situation of the average Arizonan, women's rights, civil rights, and equal rights. She has been fearless in her defense of her American values and has genuinely proven she cares about the people of Arizona. She has stood by her principles and still has managed to work with the other side of the aisle on key decisions. She actually managed to be a leader on blocking some of the worst of the legislation coming from the Republican super majority in the State Legislature. She too has managed to get many bills passed in spite of the overwhelming Republican majority. She is Progressive in her political views but open to that seemingly old fashioned American value of compromise with moderates and conservatives. I have seen no Arizona Legislator more fearless on taking on the hard-right in this state or more able to work with the other side without sacrificing her values. Neither have I seen a legislator who seems to so genuinely care about the constituents she represents. She is one of the few voices in Arizona willing to stand up for all Arizonans even when it is politically unpopular to do so. She has been a strong advocate for better and more jobs in Arizona along with more economic opportunity for those living in poverty to rise above it. She struggled in her early life living in poverty and saw the struggles poor families face firsthand. This encouraged her to go into social work helping struggling families by not only helping direct them to programs and charities but actually helping them to better their lives and become more self sufficient. This line of work caused her to witness how broken the system is and encouraged her to get involved in politics. Arizona is a better place because of Kyrsten Sinema.
There is two other Democratic candidates running as well and both have received powerful endorsements from the party establishment. Isn't this part of the problem however the establishment. The Democratic Party establishment has not been helpful getting anything to happen in congress as of recent and is one side of the bipartisan problem in Washington. Kyrsten Sinema has received numerous endorsements from many well known and highly respected organizations and has the full support of the well liked Arizona's House Minority Leader Chad Campbell along with a number of others. She stands up for the working-class, the middle-class, education, Arizona's families, Arizona's children, womens rights, and for equal rights and her list of supporters proves it http://kyrstensinema.com/endorsements/ . I have seen neither of the other two candidates speak much if any of womens rights and equal rights and neither has a track record as good as Sinema on these issues. She was willing to speak out in defense of women's right to choose when most other Democrat's wanted to ignore the issue and against the gay marriage ban when most Arizona Democrats did not want to touch the issue. She speaks out for what is right even when what is right is unpopular and politically risky to speak out. I admire this highly in Kyrsten Sinema and her willingness to still compromise with the other side to move Arizona forward. Don't get me wrong, David Schapira is a great guy and made for a great legislator and I highly respect him. However he just in my opinion does not rise to the level of Kyrsten Sinema on all the important issues and has been much less willing to speak out for what is right because of political reasons. When it comes to Andrei Cherny in spite of the backing of former President Bill Clinton and former Arizona Attorney General and Arizona Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Terry Goddard, both of which I highly admire, I strongly disagree Andrei Cherny is the best choice for CD9. His campaign style of mud slinging and hurtful remarks towards his opponents, his arrogant personality, and being little more then a middle of the road establishment party guy has caused me to loose any faith I had left in him. This may be a harsh review but I am being completely honest in my opinions.
In closing Kyrsten Sinema is who I support. I am not directly involved with Kyrsten Sinema's campaign, a member of any of the organizations supporting Kyrsten, or have no financial gain or any gain otherwise in my support of her. I am merely a resident of CD9 in Mesa, Arizona who after years of observing all three of these candidates in their political positions and research of all three came to determine Kyrsten Sinema is the candidate I support for CD9. I may be quite a bit more progressive/liberal then many residents in CD9 but I believe I am pragmatic and level headed enough to give a fair look at all three candidates. The decisions our congressional leaders will face will be monumental and require great political courage and sufficient character in order for them to be successful. Kyrsten Sinema is both fearless in political courage and has great character. She has what it takes to stand up to those actively seeking to dismantle the middle class and do incredible harm to the working class, those seeking to restrict our liberty, to trample on women rights, and write discrimination into our Constitution. She also has the rare political ability to work with the opposing side that is both effective and still not compromising her deepest held values. She is who CD9 needs to represent them and will be the candidate most effective in creating the change that needs to occur.
