Organizing Does Work! Progressives Win APS School Board Elections

Albuquerque has a lot to be proud of this morning. All of the progressive candidates won seats in their respective APS School Boards Districts! What makes it even better is the fact that they defeated a highly organized Tea Party attempt to take over APS.

According to the Albuquerque Journal the winners of each district were:

District 3: Lorenzo Garcia

District 5: Candy Patterson

District 6: Elizabeth Armijo

District 7: David Peercy

In addition, the voter turnout has been estimated to be 6%. That may not sound like much, but it is almost twice the average turnout!

So…organizing does work. Keep up the hard work and continue the fight. We will win the Albuquerque Mayoral election this year!
