Re: “Tucson Sentinel Unearths Treasure Trove of Ally Miller's Emails That Demonstrate She's a Big Fat Liar

There's a bigger story not being told for whatever reasons: The online Arizona Daily Independent, with a FOIA request, obtained a bunch of county emails that show County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry, Deputy John Bernal, planner (Dr.) John Moffatt, PCDOT Director Priscilla Cornelio, former State Transportation Board Chair Steve Christy, and others working closely with non-government private groups and individuals -- Tucson-Metro Chamber of Commerce, Sun Corridor Inc., Imagine Greater Tucson and Southern Arizona Leadership Conference, lawyer Si Schorr, lobbyist Michael Racy, and more -- to shape county policy contrary to express Board of Supervisors' policies. Check out the July 25 story at https://arizonadailyindependent.com/?p=104….

Re: “TUSD Enrollment, 2000 to 2016

And that is exactly what lazy voters and non voters want. Somebody that promises hope and change, so they can take that literally to mean they do not have to check back and see what you are doing to/for our children.

I took my kids out of TUSD and won't be back.

Re: “TUSD Enrollment, 2000 to 2016

The public's apathy has a lot to do with it. People seem to have forgotten what "democracy" means and who is ultimately responsible when public institutions are allowed to go off the rails. Our founders and policy makers during the past 200+ years who understood what our founders were trying to achieve built mechanisms into our institutions that allow for the citizenry to solve leadership problems and get rid of people who abuse their power. But the effective use of these mechanisms depends on people paying attention to what's going on, engaging in advocacy and public commentary when needed, and campaigning in support of the vote being used the way it should be used, instead of in blind support of political machines.

Why is TUSD what it is? Because the district has constituents who are too busy scrambling to make ends meet, apathetic because their education never offered them real opportunities to be anything else, and / or afraid to speak up and say the emperor has no clothes. TUSD is also what it is because of people like David Safier, a clever and obedient servant of the local machine. He likes the phrase "caveat emptor" ("buyer beware") and that is exactly the attitude that readers should take to the sort propaganda he purveys: it serves mainly to spin, excuse, mislead and conceal rather than to reveal what voters need to know to use their votes wisely.

Ratt:

Why do you bother?

Everyone with an ounce of common sense has already figured out that the facts which you reference are false and that you don't know what you're talking about.

Go away...pleeeeze!

Shocking Mr. Nintzel, just shocking!

What's next, is someone going to expose The Donald as a narcissistic know nothing that resides in fantasy land?

I can feel my sense of security crumbling around me.

Re: “Bill (and Hillary) Clinton's For-Profit College Problem

Where oh where is the coverage of the outright scammer Trump University, still being investigated for fraud? USAID goes around the world doing well by doing good, but sometimes they don't do good and in this era I question even the reason for their existence. Much like the CIA, they are money eaters and I would like to see their balance sheet, good things versus stupid things . USAID may be under the umbrella of the State Department, but it has nothing to do with embassies across the world.

Julie Heston:

Why should anyone else pay attention to facts when you aren't?

That seems hypocritical to me.

Re: “TUSD Enrollment, 2000 to 2016

Could it be that majority politicians' hate for all things public, including public education as demonstrated by excessive control and lack of funding, has anything to do with it?

This article proves nothing, just another way the media is campaigning against the tax payers of Pima County. The media in Pima County is working together to oust the only Supervisor that looks out for the tax payer. https://arizonadailyindependent.com/2016/0…

...and when questioned she lied about it. With our national security info.

Contest that with Maricopa County reading Pima County's strategy for growth, development and transportation solutions.

Oh wait, we don't have any.

Re: “Wednesday at the DNC

I still can't believe that anybody still takes the Clintons seriously. The next e-mail revelation should finish her off. Try to pay attention to real facts, not feelings.

Re: “Wednesday at the DNC

Bernie would've lost without anything the DNC did. He lost straight up on the votes and he lost by a wide margin, wider than Hillary lost to Obama in '08 I believe.
