PHOENIX — ProgressNow Arizona has hit for the cycle in January, establishing the year-old organization as the go-to progressive voice holding elected leaders accountable in several television, print and radio interviews on the state’s biggest political stories.
Executive Director Robbie Sherwood has provided commentary in response to Gov. Doug Ducey’s inaugural speech, led a massive press conference and rally pushing common-sense budget solutions ahead of Ducey’s “State of the State” speech, broke down Ducey’s anti-education budget plan and stood up for President Obama’s accomplishments after his State of the Union address.
And most recently ProgressNow Arizona went head to head with Koch-backed Americans for Prosperity in Sunday’s Arizona Republic on the critical need to raise the federal minimum wage. Please check out and share that article by clicking here.
