Anyone interested in a Progressive Voting guide I've compiled?

Anyone please feel free to let me know where you think I'm wrong; this is basically something that I've compiled after doing research as to how most progressives are voting (I feel Prop 114 is probably the MOST controversial, however).

I also did a rundown of the judges based on some combination of campaign contributions, by whom they were appointed, and how they are generally viewed by those that appear in front of them. Please feel free to add any information that I may have overlooked, or "correct" me in some way. Otherwise, enjoy, and pass it along if you see fit.

President = Obama/Biden

US Senator = Carmona, Richard

US. Rep in Congress, District 9 = Sinema, Kyrsten

AZ State Senator District 26 = Ableser, Ed

AZ State Rep District 26 = Mendez, Juan & Sherwood, Andrew

Corporation Commissioner = Newman, Paul & Busching, Marcia & Kennedy, Sandra

Sheriff = Penzone, Paul

Central AZ Water Conservation Dist = Goddard, Terry & Macre, Heather & Atkins, Lisa & Bain, Robin Elizabeth

Bond Approval = Yes


"NO" Judges

Pelander, John
Ballinger, Eddward
Beene, James
Blakey, Craig
Brnovich, Susan
Contes, Connie
Coury, Christopher
Ditsworth, John
Gates, Pamela
Gerlach, Douglas
Harrison, Cari
Kiley, Daniel
Leclaire, Thomas
McVey, Michael
Palmer, David
Potts, Karen
Thompson, Peter
Udall, David

"YES" Judges

Downie, Margaret
Kessler, Donn
Norris, Patricia
Portley, Maurice
Swann, Peter
Abrams, Helene
Cohen, Bruce
Davis, Glenn
Flores, Lisa
Garcia, Jeanne
Gass, David
Gentry-Lewis, Jo Lynn
Gordon, Michael
Hannah, John
Hoffman, Kristin
Kemp, Michael
Klein, Andrew
Mahoney, Margaret
McClennen, Crane
McCoy, Michael
McMurdie, Paul
McNally, Colleen
Miles, Linda
Miles, Robert
Oberbillig, Robert
Padilla, Jose
Ryan, Timothy
Sanders, Teresa
Steinle, Roland
Stephens, Sherry
Whitten, Christopher

PROP 114 = NO (again, the most controversial, but it smacks of a "Hold Your Ground" law gone bad; I could be swayed, I suppose)
PROP 115 = NO
PROP 116 = NO
PROP 117 = NO
PROP 118 = YES
PROP 119 = YES
PROP 120 = NO
PROP 121 = NO
PROP 204 = YES

Any thoughts? If not, enjoy!

Hi I love the above list done by grown2hate

I also am voting no to 114 cause of trevon martin., rodeny King, etc..And it doesn't mean criminals automatically get anything. It just preserves the right to due process for all!!

I am stuck on judges, who to vote yes to retain on and who to vote no on

I would LOVE to find the same list above for PIMA County..I looked for an hour last night and not really getting anything.

Anyone compiled a list for Pima county

4. If I have time I can work on it his weekend, but here is a quick guide...

http://www.azvoterguide.com/?page_id=2304

This at LEAST tells you who appointed each judge. And you can try to Google each name individually to see who they contribute to, or to try and find out which way they lean politically.

7. Judges info

I've been searching for HOURS. I wish I found your list sooner. Where did you find your information/made you come to the keep/toss conclusions?

9. Honestly, I don't remember the exact site, but oddly enough it was a conservative forum.

They rated judges on a 1-10 scale based on ideology, how they were rated by their peers, how attorneys generally felt about them, and how people that appeared before them generally rated them. I essentially went against the judges that they LOVED, and when in doubt, said "no" to any other Brewer appointments (unless they seemed to trend liberally). It wasn't scientific, but seemed better than nothing.

8. Love Early Voting

It's so much easier, especially for me cause I have a hard time filling in my ballot and AZ uses scantron not touch screen. But even if I didn't have motor impairments. I still find it to make way more sense to be able to do it at home when you can look for information as you vote on props and local candidates. Next time I'll be better organized to do the judges..

I am so glad I found this forum!!

GO OBAMA!!!

10. My imperfect judge list for PIMA county



"NO Judges" cause they were appointed by Brewer or Governor Hull who supported Bush over McCain in the 2000 republican primary which tells me-conservative
Karen Adam
Kyle Bryson
Carmine Cornelio
Jane Eikleberry
Richard Gordon
Jan Kearney
Michael Miller
Scott Rash
Christopher Staring
Paul Tang
Stephen Villarreal
Jane Eikleberry
Richard Gordon
Philip Espinoza

"YES Judges" cause appointed by Napolitano
Sarah Simmons
Gus Aragon

"leave blank" Cause do not know anything about past governors
Deborah Bernini
Appointed in 1997 by Governor Fife Symington
Richard Fields Appointed in 1997 by Governor Fife Symington
Howard Hantman
Appointed in 1994 by Governor Fife Symington
Kenneth Lee Appointed in 1997 by Governor Fife Symington
Leslie Miller
Appointed in 1985 by Governor Bruce Babbitt

I only did it by who appointed them!! I am sure there's more accurate ways of taking more data into account..Feel free to do a better one!

11. wish I had checked here.

For judges, reversing teabagger lists is a great place to start; I did that too And googled 8 of them to find cases and see whether I agreed with them, when the list wasn't definitive.

Yeah 114 (passed overwhelmingly)

Sounded like common sense, but my fear is the same as yours. Especially when anything can be called terrorism, and give felony status. I prefer to leave these things in the hands of judges based on the merits of an individual case.
