"Not Your Grandfather's Caucus"

When Arizona Grand Canyon Independent Voters set up a caucus for independent voters at the Showlow Senior Citizens Center, local press failed to post notice about the event. Local Arizona independent activists Geannie Schroeder and Scott Brannon were undetered when nobody showed up.

What's an independent activist to do? Move to the next corner!

Geannie and Scott moved their operation to the local library in Showlow, set up a table, gave out bottled water and cookies and signed up another dozen or so voters interested in political reform. A lot of folks walked by, but a lot of independents stopped and listened, says Geannie. She was motivated by the experience. The next move? The Safeway.

This is exactly the kind of grassroots activism that builds the independent movement!

Watch for Grand Canyon Independent Voters on your corner!
