Arizona Alliance Holds Its Convention
Rep. Ruben Gallego, Rep. Greg Stanton and Fred Yamashita, Executive Director of the Arizona AFL-CIO, spoke at the Arizona Alliance’s convention last Friday in Phoenix, and Sen. Mark Kelly sent a video greeting. Richard Fiesta, Executive Director of the Alliance, discussed retiree issues and the senior vote.
“The senior vote will be critical in 2024, just as it has been in the past,” said Fiesta. “That is the case in the key state of Arizona as much as anywhere, and Arizona Alliance members will be leading the way to get out the vote for pro-retiree candidates.”
Convention delegates also elected their officers: Linda Somo, President; Vic Peterson, 1st Vice President; Saundra Cole, 2nd Vice President; Janie Hydrick, Treasurer; and Margarita Silva, Secretary.
