Dear Whitney,

While we elect legislators to set policy and priorities for our state, in fact, as citizens, YOU have the ultimate say. And right now, your signature on several petitions is pivotal to making sure you can indeed have that final say on bills passed in this year’s legislative session that

  • create tax loopholes for the wealthiest Arizonans that will cut billions of dollars in state revenue needed for schools, infrastructure, solutions for the water shortage crisis, and other essential state responsibilities AND
  • threaten your sacred right to vote

I’ve provided a brief description of each petition farther down in this email.

Please use the power of your pen to be one of the 150,000 signatures grassroots organizers need by mid-September to place six referendums on the 2022 ballot so that voters can decide.

Read on to find out where you can go to sign these -as well as petitions to Stop Dark Money.

While you’re at it, I would also appreciate your signature on my nominating petition to help me earn a place on the 2022 ballot to represent our district.

Sincerely,
Judy
Rep Judy Schwiebert, LD20

If You’ve Already Signed Petitions

I Invite You to Be Part of  My Campaign

In this, my first year representing our community, I’ve gained a whole new appreciation for the importance of electing people who like me, want to make sure every Arizonan gets their chance to thrive.

Unfortunately, too many people at the Capitol prioritize only those who have already become financially successful, leaving the rest of us to deal with underfunded schools, a drastic teacher shortage,  soaring healthcare costs, a lack of affordable housing, not enough good-paying jobs, crumbling infrastructure, a climate crisis and other urgent issues.

I’ve also gained a new appreciation for the fact that no one can do this job alone. It truly does take a village.  I hope you will be part of our village of volunteers and contributors to ensure that I can continue to represent you and your priorities. Please sign up to donate or volunteer at my website JudyForAZ.com

Get Your Free COVID Shot!

The new Delta variant has created another spike in COVID infections. The more Arizonans who get vaccinated, the more we can all safely get back to the things we love. If you aren’t yet fully vaccinated, I urge you to contact your doctor or local healthcare provider, or go to https://noahhelps.org/covid-vaccine/ where you can schedule a vaccine appointment at a Neighborhood Outreach Access to Health (NOAH) center. 

You can also book appointments online at any state health department site at http://podvaccine.azdhs.gov or by calling 844-542-8201. A video tutorial on online appointment scheduling is available here
