State Leaders Join the Fight Against Prop 121

 

PHOENIX, Ariz. – State Senator Steve Gallardo, and Maricopa County Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox have joined with Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery to co-chair the fight against Proposition 121.

Proposition 121 is an election system that would completely eliminate Arizona’s current system.  Under Proposition 121, party primaries would no longer exist.  Instead, Arizona would have one primary ballot in each district with the names of everyone running for an office in that district.  In this “jungle primary,” the two candidates that get the most votes would then move on to the general election, regardless of party.

“I am proud to be part of a strong bipartisan group of people who are concerned about the future of Arizona,” said County Attorney Bill Montgomery.  “Proposition 121 is simply an attempt by special interests to control our elections.”

“This proposition will result in a loss of choices for the voters.  We must not allow our elections to become a place for political schemes and corruption,” said Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox.

“Money spent on elections will double here in Arizona if this proposition passes,” said Senator Steve Gallardo.  “More money in politics means less of a voice for the voter, which is what the special interests pushing this issue want.”
