Re: “Foreign Exchange

Peggy Johnson:
Thanks for responding. While I objected to the Loft being on the County Bond. I am glad that you use grants etc.

Re: “Foreign Exchange

This is Peggy Johnson, the Executive Director, and The Loft withdrew its request to be on the bond election ballot. While we are tax exempt, we do pay sales tax and we receive no funding from the city, county or state except in the form of competitive grants for the arts from TPAC and the Arizona Commission on the Arts.

Re: “Smith Speaks: "It's Gut-Check Time"

Although I'm a raving, left wing liberal, this guy doesn't sound bad at all. Is he hiding anything? Eh! He's too sane to win the primary.

Re: “Foreign Exchange

"Raising money" for improvements? I thought that's what your profits go to make those improvements. I realize that the Loft is a "non-profit" but for the taxpayers to foot your bills with inclusion in the next Bond Package is not right. With so many more valid needs of the Bond to have the Loft in the mix is a waste of taxpayers money. I will vote against the Loft on that and will encourage my friends to do the same.
Go scam someone else for your improvements.

Much better at answering the question that Doug Ducey whose eyes glaze over every time he is asked an important question that is not about him.

Re: “Smith Speaks: "It's Gut-Check Time"

A little dicey on education. Isn't choice grand, is not an education policy or a commitment to full funding. Plus he's ok with vouchers. I don't know why any educator would vote for a Republican in this state.
