Posted By on Sun, Jul 29, 2012 at 6:00 AM

On Arizona Illustrated's Political Roundtable this week: Tucson Mayor Jonthan Rothschild stops by to talk about the proposed road bonds, annexation, and downtown. Then Pima County Democratic Party chairman Jeff Rogers, Pima County Republican Party chairwoman Carolyn Cox and former state lawmaker Pete Hershberger talk about the week in politics. We tackle the proposed statewide sales-tax proposition, weigh the proposed jungle primary prop, kick around education funding, dig into whether the state's budget surplus means Arizona is on solid financial ground and more.
