Ron Asta Wonders: Should I Stay or Should I Go?

Posted By on Mon, Mar 28, 2011 at 4:28 PM

Republican Ron Asta wants to know if you think he should stay in the race for Tucson mayor.

Asta, who has been hammered in the morning daily for apologizing for shoplifting a steak but not addressing a traffic accident that left an 18-year-old woman dead, has cut an ad that will air this Thursday during the news talking about the accident.

"I want to bring the issue of the traffic accident to a head," Asta says. "I want to hear from people about whether I should drop out."

Asta, a consultant to developers who served as a Democratic member of the Pima County Board of Supervisors in the 1970s, says he wants to stay in the race.

"It feels like I'm connecting with people and I want to move forward," he says.
