Re: “The Skinny

I used to admire Senator McCain, both for his service and for his willingness to stand apart from party for the good of the nation. That McCain died during his presidential campaign. Now, he's a sad, pathetic shadow of himself and we need to retire him to Sun City.

Re: “The Skinny

Someone is no longer a maverick - if he ever was. He's become a blithering embarrassment.

What the hell does that mean? It's a poster. It's an image. If he saw a picture of it, he saw it.

Re: “The Skinny

"I never saw it". -- flipping liar. What a slimy politician McCain has become.

Re: “The Skinny

City needs to step up and support transit the rest of the way beyond fares. If the routes work out, the bus is a good way to go. However, for folks who have to catch two buses, it can take two hours each way. Even on one bus, it takes 40 minutes to go from Speedway/Pantano to Downtown -I did this for seven years. The savings were incredible. Help our lower paid people keep their jobs!

Re: “The Skinny

What about SunVan? A city hall insider tells me that a one way trip on SunVan costs taxpayers $32. Is that true? The same source says that the primary destination of SunVan is to the Casinos. Is that true? I'd like to know.

Re: “The Skinny

I haven't voted for McCain in 20 years. I want to make sure I am counted as an under vote. Rather than a Kirkpatrick supporter. I find nothing about her to support.

Re: “The Skinny

If you are really unhappy with McCain and you abstain from voting for a less than perfect alternative, the pretty good Ann Kirkpatrick, you're lowering the vote total McCain needs in order to win. Didn't someone once say: "The perfect is the enemy of the good"? Refusing to vote for Kirkpatrick will prove the adage true. Think about it. By the way, I have never voted for a candidate with whom I agreed 100%. There has never been such a candidate.

Re: “The Skinny

Same here Rat. I've had it with McCain and all his bullshit.

Re: “The Skinny

I too will leave this one blank. No more McCain and no beltway insider votes.

It's a minuscule number of people polled.

Re: “The Skinny

I have a problem. I personally like Ann Kirkpatrick and think she is a good person, and I like her background. My problem with her is that she votes the beltway party line far too often, and by doing so, is not representing the state that sent her there, as beltway Democratic policies are NOT Arizona. On the other hand, John McCain has lost his way, and I don't think is representing anyone at this point. I may not even vote for either of them, and just leave that one blank. Let the chips fall where they may.

Re: “The Skinny

Looked at Suzanne for Assessor and her website could use detail. The budget for assessor is online on the Pima County website-what needs to be cut? Where would she increase services? Court cases, I don't know. But I can imagine that there are laws and regulations that need to be followed. How much does she know about that? And, so on. I'd like to see evidence of homework before I vote...

Re: “The Skinny

This is what the Democrats and John McCain and Jeff Flake have to offer Arizonans.

Austin sex assault suspect previously deported five times

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said a man accused of serial rape in the Austin area was deported five times before his most recent arrest in August.

Nicodemo Coria-Gonzales faces six charges including aggravated sexual assault and kidnapping.

Re: “The Skinny

In the LD 10 House race local small business owner and twice unsuccessful candidate Todd Clodfelter has a web site that features some great pictures and a whole lot of words that fall short of offering much in the way of substantive ideas for improving the education and economy of our state. He's a nice guy who is unlikely to champion southern Arizona, Pima County and its municipalities against his party's leadership. We'll hear him tell us that the voices of Democrats aren't heard in Phoenix and a sure way to keep it that way would be to send more southern Arizona Republicans up there, where they'll only be heard saying 'aye' to the proposals of their leadership. Southern Arizona needs Gabaldon and Hernandez, Friese and Hanley, Mach and Engel in the House.

Re: “The Skinny

Wonderful article but I would like to make a correction! The Pima County Assessor race is heating up. The current incumbent, while winning the Primary race against his opponent, will now face Independent Candidate Suzanne Droubie in the General election. Suzanne Droubie is running on a platform of transparency, conservative spending, and customer service. Check her out, don't count her out!

Re: “The Skinny

Beautiful piece. Felt like I had truly met your mother. Sounds like a beautiful spirit and strong curious questing woman. So sorry for your loss and what a blessing to have loved and been loved so fully and deeply.

Re: “The Skinny

Thanks for sharing this story. My mom had a hemorrhagic stroke at 86. She was active, involed in politics, loving her kids and grandkids, until the day of the stroke. We were given the option of surgery, but mom had always told us she didn't want to live if she couldn't walk her little dog Mac. We knew her quality of life was very important to her. So we had to honor her wishes and let her go. So hard, but 13 years later, we still know it was the right decision. Blessing to you.
