Re: “Ally's Follies

She is no different from half the republican caucus in the legislature, and Paul Ryan and Darrell Issa types. They throw around wild accusations with no substance, distort legitimate research to support pre determined assumptions, blow up minor, obscure incidents into major fake scandals, and outright lie. All to kowtow to the lunatic base, who are paranoid about a changing American with which they cannot cope. This is not about legitimate policy disagreements, it's whole different universe of paranoid perception. Pumped up by the Fox Faux news method.

Re: “Streets of Ire

Where the he!! is all the road repair money going anyway? Property and sales tax in Pima County is much higher than the local wages can justify and yet the road infrastructure in this town is nearly un-driveable in many places. What else could explain the disparity of tax dollars taken in versus services rendered to the public aside from mismanagement and corruption? Road projects drag on forever compared to other municipalities who demand that a road contractor complete on time and budget before they will be considered for another construction/repair bid. The sheer volume of roads torn up at any one time combined with the fact that these projects take twice as long as necessary tells the story of no one minding the store. Ally may not be right about much, but her allegations of corruption appear not far off the mark.

Re: “Ally's Follies

@franklymydears - I agree totally with your comment about Nancy Young Wright. I'm in District 1 and I definitely voted for Ms. Wright. She has had a solid record as the President of the Amphitheater School board and subsequently as a state representative. Her credentials were impeccable to be a County Supervisor. Unfortunately, many of the voters in District 1 are "Tea Party" nutz jobs and they obviously voted Ally Miller into her office.

Re: “Ally's Follies

This is just sad. She seems to have emotional issues, and never should have run for political office. I hope she gets help.

Re: “Streets of Ire

While it certainly appears Miller is quite a wack job, spending any money on the NEW pristine section of River between Campbell and Dodge while other major arterial roads fall apart is equally wacko.

Re: “Ally's Follies

Just a reminder...
" Chris Horquilla " (post #1) is the moniker used by the Rosemont Mine shill who was a prolific pro-mine poster at The Daily Star prior to their changing to Facebook comments.

From the article:
"She (Miller) is the only supervisor to support the proposed Rosemont copper mine."

Re: “Ally's Follies

A caveat regarding the description of District 1. It includes just a western fraction of the Tanque Verde Valley. Those who voted Ms. Miller into office were nothing if not naive. So much for Miller's constituents being affluent, educated et al. I live further east in the valley and am ably represented by Ray Carroll. Wouldn't Nancy Young Wright have been a marvelous Supervisor? Bright, concerned, experienced, works well with others, etc. And nothing in Ally's record as of the 2012 campaign would have led any astute observer to think the same of her.

Re: “Ally's Follies

@BogMann - we all pay taxes, we all drive on roads all over town. The roads most travelled that are in the most disrepair should be fixed first, regardless of some arbitrary district line.

Re: “Getting the Ax

Reminds me of the way I (and nearly all employees in my situation - many years' senority and earning a decent wage) - were summarily "let go" in the Spring of 2009. Our work product was not in question.......our salaries were. The company then hired some very inexperienced people at a greatly reduced salary to replace us. Well, the company eventually went out of business due, in part I am sure, to all their cost-cutting measures and now not only are we still unemployed, but our replacements working for pennies are unemployed also. It seems to me that that is no way to run a business but the companies keep trying with the expectation that cheaper is better. And they all tumbled into the ditch!

Re: “Ally's Follies

She reminds me of a spoiled athlete that will not talk to her coaches or fellow players about any issues she has with them, but instead talks to reporters and posts on Facebook and Twitter about all her woes, real and imagined.

Re: “Ally's Follies

"She co-founded the Pima County Tea Party Patriots and launched an effort to recall Bronson that went nowhere." Quote from the Weekly story. This explains the problem, she is a Tea Party person. Good reporting Weekly.

Re: “Ally's Follies

Thanks for the update of this "public servant" and her behavior. It seems this politician thinks that getting elected to a split-vote, 4-year term gives her the power to not only be mean spirited and hypocritical and clueless, but also to act mentally deranged in a wild and aggressive way. We don't live in her district, but have consistently voted for county transportation improvements. We are angered by this supervisor's "agenda" for Pima County.

Re: “Ally's Follies

Even if all the accusations about Supervisor Miller are true: that she does not get along with other Board members, that she makes unsubstantiated accusations, that she is paranoid, etc., the fact that the Board stripped her district of road money is wrong. Those residents in District 1 all pay their taxes like everyone else. They should not be penalized because the other Board members don't like her, or what she says or does. I don't like her either, but there is no justification for what they did. This action was exactly what the current Governor of New Jersey is being justly criticized about. There is no difference.

Re: “Ally's Follies

Isn't she the one who was asking for the county to send cops by her house every few minutes and phoning 911 for no reason? Or was that another Republican?

Re: “Fighting for Mom

and just to point out, she recieved one 10 1/2 year sentence, two 7 1/2 year sentences, and another three years on another charge. Theyre just running consecutively so the longest time she could be in there is 10 1/2 years. Over 28 years.
