Equality Arizona is excited to be hosting the first candidate forum in the 2011 Phoenix mayoral election cycle. This historic event will not only be the first opportunity for the candidates to appear together in public, it is the first time in history the candidates for mayor of the 6th largest city in the country will participate in a forum focused on LGBT equality!

The forum will be moderated by Emmy Award-winning reporter Donna Rossi of CBS 5 (KPHO). In her role at CBS 5, Donna has covered some of the most high profile stories in the valley and across the state.

We invite you to participate in this exciting event and hear what the candidates have to say about the issues that matter to you.

The forum will be held Monday, April 4th at the Sheraton Phoenix Downtown Hotel, 340 N 3rd Street. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the forum is set to start at 7 p.m. Seating will be limited. We ask that you RSVP today at www.equalityarizona.org

All of the candidates have been invited. As of today, the following have confirmed their participation:

  • Thane Eichenauer
  • Wes Gullett
  • Claude Mattox
  • Greg Stanton

Please add your name to the list of participants. RSVP online at www.equalityarizona.org.

Once you’ve let us know you plan to attend, please take a moment to submit a question for consideration by the moderator. Simply send an email to info@equalityarizona.org with your question and we’ll include it in the mix of questions for the moderator to choose from.

We look forward to seeing you at this exciting event

Announcement of a Mayoral Candidate Town Hall Meeting

Many I have talked to feel that Phoenix needs changing and that Neighborhoods, Businesses and Citizens all over the city are being harmed by present policies and direction.

This August, we will be electing a new Mayor.  Wes Gullett is one of the candidates.  He will be holding a town hall style meeting on 3/8/11 as follows:

Mountain View Lutheran Church
11002 S. 48th Street, Phoenix, AZ 85044
Tuesday, March 8th, 2011
6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

This event is NOT a fundraiser.  It is an opportunity for you to ask the hard questions on the issues that matter to you and hear the vision for the City of a candidate who could be our next mayor.  As other candidates may schedule similar town hall meetings, we shall endeavor to so inform you.

Please plan on attending on Tuesday, March 8th.  Even if you don’t ask a single question and just listen to others and watching Gullett interact with the crowd, you will have a better basis for voting than you otherwise would have.

In the last Mayoral/Council election only 11% of the city’s voters chose our Mayor and Council persons in the odd numbered districts.  This is a pathetic turnout in any city, never mind in a city the size of Phoenix.  Don’t let 11% of the voters, many driven by special interest groups – decide who your next Mayor will be?  Attend candidate town hall meetings when they are scheduled and then show up to vote.

Please send this email to your friends and members of your associations and Coalitions.

This announcement which should not be construed as an endorsement consistent with the commitment to attempt to advise whenever a mayoral candidate schedules a town hall type meeting.  The first such meeting was held by Greg Stanton.

Thank you,

Paul Barnes
