Martha by a nose ;-}
One of the last votes, if not the last vote, Barber cast was in favor of the budget deal (Cromnibus). In doing so, when he had a chance to stand as a true progressive, he voted yes on a bill that benefited the same Wall Street slime who nearly bankrupted the nation, further damaged the EPA, gave Navajo land to yet another foreign mining corporation and sold elected officials to the highest bidders. Even Jeff Flake voted against this legislative nightmare.
Nice work Ron.
Now that there's funny!
The new Congress and its members will be sworn in on January 6, 2015.
But you are correct. Right now we have NO representation in Washington.
Hillary's gonna quit. It's gonna be Joe Biden by a nose.
It's a sad day in Baja Arizona. We now have NO representation in Washington.
Don't lead him on. False hopes can be devastating.
Just take a look at Hillary.
Ron promised to finish the term and did more than voters wanted. Congratulations Ms McSally.
Keep DM alive.
Well, Davey, your resume might have been considered if your cover letter didn't start out; "Dear Dumb Doug" ;-}
Well, David a topic on which you and I remain in lock step in opposition. I'll say it here again that charter schools have become a place where it's more about the money than the education; I have seen too many kids come out of the program less prepared than their counterparts in traditional schools. But, the way for traditional schools to eliminate this shanker is a better prophylaxis, and I don't mean just more money.
Yeah, you might be subject to criticism for the opening paragraph but that is because this is your normal routine, negativism. It's raining outside right now but on the positive side I happen to know it will be a nicer day later on.
Congratulations, Col. McSally. Good luck in Washington.
@aznemesis, I haven't tried it yet, but there is plenty of horrible Mexican food made by guys named things like Juan and Jose on the southside...the proof of the pudding is in the eating.
Thanks. Sadly it's the truth.
TUCSON, AZ (KOLD) - Tucson Unified School District has ended its financial support of an adult-education program connected with "Promotoras del Barrio," due to improper use of funding, according to TUSD officials.
Tell us again how the money is for the children.
It's a great story.
AZ gave TUSD millions more, two days ago. They expanded administrative staff again.
I'll be happy when there is no more TUSD administration, no more Grijalvas polluting and corrupting not just the schools and the teachers, but probably the children too! So yeah.. if privatization cleans that up, So Be It.

"Funny Post of the day award" I owe you a coffee!!
"parents have little or no financial exposure resulting from their choice"
No, they have far more at risk than simple money - their children. So I don't get the point.
Both charter and public school systems are poor. The basic foundation of applying assembly line mentality to education of children is so completely, 180 degrees backward in the modern world, that there is virtually zero value in any taxpayer funded schools of any kind except as a daycare service.
This is not to take one thing away from all the educated, hard-working teachers who strive every day to make it work; but school as designed today is so flawed, it probably does more harm than good except in cases where kids would otherwise spend the day without supervision or in abusive or dysfunctional homes.
No, Ricky, the only ones who have had their way in Arizona are conservatives, who won't be happy until there is no more public education and all the tax money funneled into private, preferably legislative, hands. They're already well on their way and Ducey will make sure that there is nothing to slow them down.
