DFATucson Endorses Jeff Latas for Congress

Democracy For America/Tucson (a non partisan, progressive organization) is pleased to announce its endorsement of Jeff Latas for Congress in Congressional District 8.


In a field of several worthy progressive candidates, Mr. Latas stands out for DFA/T due to his commitment to election process integrity, including his support of the unique and cutting-edge Arizona State Clean Elections system, and his commitment to a verifiable paper ballot and an auditable electronic voting system, which are issues of ongoing concern and activism for DFA/T members.

Members, who overwhelmingly voted to endorse Mr. Latas and had the opportunity to make comments on their ballots, noted Mr. Latas' wealth of leadership experience (as a result of his career in the Air Force, including work in Washington D.C. and the Mideast), as well as his ability to attract a broad range of voters, especially veterans.

Members also cited Mr. Latas' strong stance on environmental issues, particularly reducing dependence on fossil fuels, and his direct, progressive and clear stand on issues as evidenced by his responses to questions posed by DFA/T and the information posted on his website.

Finally, and very significantly, DFA/T is impressed with Mr. Latas' consistent opposition to the war in Iraq and his support of the Murtha plan to bring the troops home safely as soon as feasible.

DFA/T is proud to support Mr. Latas in the Demcratic primary and is committed to support whichever progressive candidate runs in the general election.

DFA/T members are urged to volunteer for Latas and to donate funds. You may do both on his web site www.jefflatas.com or by coming to the office at 3355 N.1st Avenue (next to Click's Billiards).
