Re: “Gov Race: Ducey vs. DuVal

I voted against the ice cream man because I do not like the taste of CSC ice cream.

Re: “Associated Press Calls GOP Governor Primary for Ducey

Elections have outcomes. Either you accept it or you don't. Name calling has no place here.

Re: “Most Of The Left And Some Of The Right Agree: Police Are Over-Militarized

About 30 years ago I was living in Philadelphia when the mayor and police and fire chiefs huddled and decided to put an end to a standoff with a group named MOVE. They decided it would be a swell idea to drop a satchel bomb on the row house serving as the headquarters of MOVE. When the smoke cleared an entire city block had burned to the ground and 11 MOVE members including 5 children were incinerated. To date, the city has spent $50 million in reparations.

It's probably a good thing this happened in 1985. With today's firepower they probably would have burned the entire city.

Re: “Demolition Begins On Former Downtown Performance Center/Mat Bevel Spaces

Split the town in half? You got your trolley to go back and forth stupid. These buildings should have been gone 20 years ago. The people that pay taxes need away to get out of town.

Re: “Primary Election Results (So Far)

Good riddance Horne and Hup.



Ducey invented the ring the bell and sing a song for his ice cream staff to get tipped. He has the kids hold out a tablet for signing off on your card but you have to select $1, $2, or $3 tip to get there.

So he ought to swing back around to Hi Fi Kichens and Coctails to tip the employees that he and his own staffed STIFFED during his election party.

Do the right thing DUCEY.

Re: “Democrats Stand Together at Primary Night's Unity Party

LD 9 Objective Analysis, Lesson One Vote for candidates that reflect your views and values on issues. Lesson Two Don't count your legislators before the election, three changes in the State Senate and guess who then controls that body. Lesson Three the decisions are not made in "the room" they are made when the leadership decides appointments to committees and assignment of legislation to committee. Ethan Orr won't be in that closet, his brand of "independent thought" has very few fellow legislators trusting him. One good vote is not reason enough to send him to Phoenix again. Living in this community eight times as many years as Dr. Randy Friese won't qualify Orr for any extra pay or vote on the House Floor, so? "Normal citizens are not party ideologues" and the current bunch of Republicans up in the Legislature are not? Time to raise the IQ of the Legislature and stop being the late night show jokes. The Speaker of the House who Orr voted for just lost his Congressional election attempt to a cowboy. Enough about who controls the Arizona Legislature. Leadership on the issues important to Tucson and Southern Arizona needs a fresh approach and a figuhter without fear of targets on his back from members of his own caucus. Watch as the Republican Legislator you adore so much twists in the wind as the ideologues of his party answer to the voters this election. Downing, issues count in your objective analysis which ones do you want to debate, school vouchers, funds for public education, closing state parks again?

Re: “Democrats Stand Together at Primary Night's Unity Party

LD 9 Race Objective Analysis

Electing another Democrat State legislator from Pima County in place of ORR would only be a set back for our region! Dr. Freise and his Democratic Party handlers risk making the life of all citizens and elected officials in Southern Arizona (most of whom are dems) more challenging than it already is, when confronting State level issues with their goals. The reality is, it WILL BE, again, a republican controlled State House and Senate, thus Ethan Orr is the only elected legislator from the City of Tucson touching districts, actually in the room when the decisions are being made. The Democrats in their singular focus of winning, blindly sacrifice all of us along the way! Most, if not all, reasonable people who have business with the State, such as Pima County, COT, U of A, ordinary people etc. etc. have experienced the importance of Ethan Orr. Normal citizens who are not party ideologues will see through this regional mistake proposed by the Dems and the good intentioned Doctor will lose. Tucson is already marginalized at the capitol because of our one party nature let's not make it worse. Furthermore, when Ethan Orr returns he is a committee chair, Freise, just another vote that lacks the influence to effect much at all. Independents, moderates and Tucsonans in general should/will support having Ethan's voice working on our behalf, a voice that is RELEVANT, has common sense, is moderate in thought, thoughtful in action and MOST significantly within the majority caucus. Ethan represents a balanced approach to governance, he is a native of Tucson and a fellow Amphi Panther who has been in this community about 8 times as many years as Freise. He is courageous, fiscally accountable and takes a heartfelt approach to governance. Ethan, it seems like one party has a target on your back because you voted for the Medicaid expansion and one on your chest for their own reasons! LOVE IT! Keep up the good work, focus on right and wrong, focus on Tucson, focus on Independent thought, and let the petty party people be party people.

Re: “Most Of The Left And Some Of The Right Agree: Police Are Over-Militarized

It's a shame this issue got caught up in the shooting in Ferguson. They are two separate issues. TPD has tanks and Hummers. Purchased with millions of dollars in drug money.

Can't afford to stop the flow can we?

That money could have been given to education.

Re: “Op-ed: My Pick For Arizona Superintendent Of Public Instruction: David Garcia

Odd criteria you use. Personality? I'm not electing an entertainer.

Maybe that's what's wrong with whom the voters are selecting. They are looking to be entertained.

Re: “Arizona's Economic/Education Divide

Your video makes a powerful argument for why it would be a crime to devote any additional resources to our educational systems in southern Arizona. Thank you for busting the myth that more funding for education will raise student performance. "...we have to address the economic and social causes of poverty". David Safier makes the argument against increased funding for education and makes the point that until economic and social poverty issues are addressed in Tucson, schools will not make up the difference. Given this crisis of poverty here David, would you agree that doing everything humanly possible to bring good paying jobs to Pima County should be our highest priority, over nearly all other concerns.. for the children?
