Kyrsten Sinema is a State Representative from Arizona. She serves as the Assistant Leader to the Democratic Caucus in the House of Representatives and represents central Phoenix in the Arizona Legislature District 15. Now in her third term, she is the ranking Democrat on the House Appropriations Committee and the ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee.
Regarded as an high flyer, Sinema will almost run for national office at some point in the future.
Sinema is an Arizona native, born and raised in a border region. She graduated college with a bachelor’s degree in Social Work at the age of 18. While advocating for “marginalized and oppressed communities in the state”, she earned her master’s degree in Social Work and later went on to graduate cum laude with her juris doctorate from Arizona State University. In addition, she was hired as an adjunct professor in the School of Social Work at ASU at the age of 26 to teach master’s level courses in fundraising and political and social policy. Kyrsten Sinema was elected to the House of Representatives in 2004, after nearly a decade of professional practice as a social worker and “social justice” advocate.
The Communist Party USA, plays a major role in Arizona’s “progressive community” and has in the past counted Sinema among its affiliates.
Kyrsten Sinema was a signatory to an advertisement “May Day and Cinco de Mayo greetings” placed in the Communist Party paper People’s Weekly World May 4, 2002. Such ads were traditionally placed in the Communist Party paper every May Day, sponsored by local party clubs, members or supporters.
Arizona’s progressive community extends May Day and Cinco de Mayo greetings to all our friends across the country. We commit ourselves to resist the Bush Administration’s drive for ever increasing military spending and a neverending state of war. We must redouble our efforts to build a people’s coalition that will drive the ultra right out of Congress next November
Co-signing the advertisement with Sinema were Communist Party USA members Joe Bernick, Jack Blawis, Lem Harris, Lorenzo Torrez, Anita Torrez, Carolyn Trowbridge, Steve Valencia, the Tuscon and East Valley Clubs of the Communist Party and party fronts the Arizona Peace Council and the Salt of the Earth Labor College.

Shortly after her election in 2004, Kyrsten Sinema and former State Representative Steve May formed Arizona Together, the statewide coalition to defeat Arizona’s same-sex marriage ban. During the course of the two years leading up to the 2006 election, Sinema led the campaign’s effort to raise nearly $3 million, research, craft, and deliver a winning message, and build a broad-based, statewide coalition of community leaders, organizations, and businesses.
Arizona made history Nov. 7 2006, when its voters became the first in the nation to reject a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. Wrote Arizona Communist Party leader and Arizona Together activist Joe Bernick
So how did we do it?
The answer is: educating, organizing and mobilizing.As soon as proponents started circulating petitions to put 107 on the ballot, opponents brought out their own clipboards, signing up thousands of volunteers. Arizona Together emerged as the campaign committee, chaired by progressive state Rep. Kyrsten Sinema.
Circa 2008, four members of the Arizona state legislature, including Sinema, joined together to form a “Progressive Caucus” in the House of Representatives of the Arizona State Legislature.
In 2010, Kyrsten Sinema served on the Board of Directors for the Progressive States Network, an organization which seeks to “transform the political landscape by sparking progressive actions at the state level”. This organization is funded by George Soros‘ Open Society Institute.
Sinema serves on numerous community and national boards, including as Board President of Community Outreach and Advocacy for Refugees, the YWCA of Maricopa County, the influential Center for Progressive Leadership, and the Young Elected Officials’ Network. She is the recipient of awards for her political leadership, including the NAACP Civil Rights Award, AZ Hispanic Community Forum Friend of the Year, Planned Parenthood Legislative CHOICE Award, Sierra Club’s Most Valuable Player, and the AZ Public Health Association Legislator of the Year.
Significantly, Sinema also serves as board member of Progressive Democrats of America (as the only state legislator on the board), a project of Democratic Socialists of America, the far left Institute for Policy Studies and the Congressional Progressive Caucus, designed specifically to move the Democratic Party to the far left.
To whom does Kyrsten Sinema owe her primary allegiance – the progressive Soros agenda, her old friends in the Arizona Communist Party, or to the “mom and pop” voters of Arizona?
