Wrapping up ONE Vote 2012 in Arizona with Richard Carmona

Senate candidate Richard Carmona with ONE Arizona

Recently, I had the great pleasure of hand-delivering ONE postcards to US Senate candidate Richard Carmona.

He graciously accepted the postcards from residents of Arizona and was eager to learn about the issues that more than 30,000 Arizonans support. We were able to speak to one another about the importance for smarter programs that help fight against preventable disease and extreme poverty.

Carmona spoke about HIV/AIDS, vaccines and other issues that are near and dear to his heart, and expressed full support to ONE and our issues. He then wanted to find ways to thank the ONE members of Arizona for informing him throughout the campaign on such important causes, as he jokingly mentioned how he’s seen us on numerous occasions at events and engagements. It was the perfect way to end the ONE Vote 2012 campaign in Arizona, where the ONE members collected more than 1,000 postcards to deliver to both candidates. Way to go AZ!
