Unfortunately, the trolls are at it again. Do they actually ever consider engaging in serious discussion with fellow citizens about issues. (That question is rhetorical. No response expected.)
Steve K. is what used to be considered a moderate Republican. (I believe he switched to Democrat because his party was so unwelcoming of any moderate views.) Even though I am left of center, I support Steve. He is always well informed and is responsive to his constituency.
The Green Party candidate for Pima County attorney (me) didn't fundraise, asked supporters to donate to the causes they cared about, and refused to put up signs. That was back in 2016. But as a woman, I'm pretty used to having a man take credit for doing something I've done. #thatswhatshesaid #hesaiditsotheyheardit
My greyhounds and I will follow Steve K. anywhere. He was a one man band like a dog to a bone in pointing the finger at the Tucson Greyhound Park atrocities. Mercifully, that hell hole ended live dog racing on June 25, 2016. And for that I'm thankful as I'm sure are the 252 dogs that left the track and went into adoptive homes. Another 150 or so went to racing servitude elsewhere and some went to an Orange County blood bank as blood donating captives for 1 or 2 years.
Steve also has common sense regarding guns, the Broadway expansion and bringing more movie and TV filming into Pima County to fill our hotels, restaurants and economy.
He's got my vote.
Civility and respect. Actually listening to ideas even if they are contrary to your stated beliefs. Working hard to understand the issues and find reasonable solutions. Producing results that benefit the community at large, not just one segment of it. Being accessible and engaging in active problem-solving. Not being afraid to try out new approaches. These are attributes that make Steve K one of the best political leaders in Arizona. In a democracy, the government is us. If we do not choose our political leaders well, it is our own fault. Steve K is a good leader and a forward thinker. Thanks for the hard work and let's see if this idea of winning elections based on the job instead of the personality will take hold.
