it is not the age of the dog in the fight that counts.. its his shoe size that matters. Just ask the punk with the nike inprint on his face. Bear down cats!!!!
Goddamn it. Let's cast this wispy little waif to play an amazonian goddess.
Hey, it's a free T-shirt. No complaints here.
Right on, Mari!
It would be ridiculous to encourage anyone to carpetbag, that is not what I was saying here, but on a side note, moving around our Valley is not quite carpetbagging. Unless, your last name is Garcia, you were raised in the Sabino area and move to Midvale park just to run! lol, yes that would be carpetbagging. The term was born in reference to a much larger distance. On a side note, Ethan has lived, worked, run a not-for-profit, raised children and was raised himself in LD 9. (Amphitheater Schools!) Looks like the Doc has been in Tucson since 2002? Does he even know the name of the local high schools? This kind of regional knowledge is important to some of us. It is not about party, for example, I would support Jason Ground (democrat) if he ran. I worked for Paul Cunningham, these guys love Tucson just about more than ANYONE I know.
With Ethan, you know you are dealing with someone who has been around our neighborhoods, does his homework, has regional experience, and listens to others. Check out his website or just run into him at the hundreds of events he attends while out of session. It scares me that we, we meaning Tucsonans, would even consider trading his energy and attendance at thousands of meetings, for the Dems just to pick up a meaningless seat? What arrogance! Is the Doc going to be retiring? Check out Ethan's activities and resume at http://www.ethanforhouse.com/
Another side note, as for health care professionals and their issues, last month, I was at an event in support of Ethan, attended by a good portion of the TMC senior level staff. They seemed to get that they have a legislator who is relevant! I think even Matt Smith, from SIMG was there! SIMG is a premier consulting and PR group that usually supports winners, candidates who matter and thus locally, mostly Dems!
News to me. What District did he move from? Most Tucson area Districts are Democrat, so why move? Being an off-year election and the usual voter turnout wouldn't he be better off in a heavy Democrat district?
I guess you are suggesting the good doctor carpetbag to find an acceptable district to run from. A lot of us dislike the folks who move at a whim or a political opportunity rather than trying to represent their neighbors and own area.
Oops, thanks for the correction! Makes the whole thing even more ridiculous.
So um, have you picked a winner yet?
I'm so incredibly stoked about this conference! And we're so lucky to have this happening in Tucson - not LA, not NYC - TUCSON.
Logical Thinker- I agree with you. The Dems would be better off running him against Terri Proud, who is been labeled as extreme by the mainstream media. Nice person, if you get to know her, but I can see where some don't like her positions, understandable. IF Doc wins, which in LD 9 district is 50/50 possibility, more than likely he is an irrelevant vote and he will soon realize that he was doing much more good helping people at UMC rather than sitting on a stool.
Mary- it is called governing and that involves compromise in a pluralistic society. Conservatives and Liberals need to learn that most prefer a moderate business oriented focus.
Hakeson-Look, if you could guarantee me a Democratic governor with a Republican House I would take that, I am not irrational. Not likely, especially with a party loyalist Democrat running for the seat. Lots could happen though in the Republican race. Ducey is my guess, his story is unique and captures the imagination.
The real issue is the redistricting process which cheats us moderate business oriented people our influence, instead we get agenda driven extremists who see the world through their PRIMARY tinted lenses.
I have known Ethan since High School, even BAJA Arizona is a better idea than attacking a voice of reason. However, you will find though that Ethan is a popular dude. He has forged relationships with many many groups over decades of service here in Tucson.
I wonder if Victoria Steele ends up the odd person out?
Ummm...2015 is *thirty* long years after 1985, unless a "long year" means something that I wasn't aware of :)
I don't hate it. I love it. Makes me proud to be a right-winger. Besides, it was Tommy who decided to shut me out after we found a middle ground. Ask him why. Maybe he'll tell you. He ignores me. Why should you care what I read ? Do us all a favor and M.Y.O.B.
^^ corey you the shit haha
His first vote in the last session was his worst.
Think about the extreme politicos he put in charge of funding our schools, our children's health care, on and on. He may be a nice person, he may have even voted less with some of the bunch bent to ruin public facilities, close state parks, underfund children services among other state duties and micro-manage Tucson city affairs, but he voted to put that group in charge. The Governor had to fight to expand federal funding for health care in Arizona and who provided the votes, it was the Democrats. Time to change course in the Legislature and elect more responsible and reasonable people, another Democrat from LD 9 would be better than half and half.
How can the expansion of Medicare be considered a fiscally conservative move? On what planet? This is exactly why the conservatives in Pima Cty are in arms about Orr. It was not a conservative move at all. They feel betrayed because they thought they were helping elect a conservative.
it was the sucky sucky wig o rama woman, ARSON
first, go after arpaio and ALL of his pedophile 'people' There's a start. The minutemen, teabaggers, his deputies...
I wish he picked a different district...
Did Brewer "expose" this or cause it through lack of funding?
