He's a liberal Democrat, he's Union-owned, and he's the frontrunner. Below are a link to his schedule of events and a list of the next few that don't charge at the door. If anyone you know is interested in showing up and asking him some real questions, maybe even shooting a little footage where possible... it looks like he's going to be a very busy boy this Saturday. Please pass this along if you're so inclined -- preferably without my contact information on top since the subject is him, not me. :)What kind of candidate is Greg Stanton?- Endorsed by police union.- Endorsed by LGBT special interest group.- Proudly says he would have voted for the food tax.- Waves away criminal charges when the perpetrator is connected enough.- Protested SB1070 in the parking lot of the Heard Museum last year.- Tagged by the DLC in 2003 as one of the country's 100 "Rising New Democrat Stars".

, Wes GullettHi,Here is the schedule of the real enemy of the citizens of Phoenix...Greg Stanton. If you can show up at any of these events to respectfully ask the appropriate questions, please do. Jenni is right on...he is a front runner and must be forced to voice his true stand on the issues which have been revealed by his past actions. Remember, he left his City Council elected seat to take a high paying job with the then Democrat Attorney General Terry Goddard. He is a liberal professional politician and nothing more...interested in advancing his career and not us. I would recommend Saturday June 25th as the event we should attend.WesWesley W.
