Re: “The Skinny

Bog Mann, your information is incorrect.
Pima County's outstanding debt is:
COPs: $168 million (not voter approved)
General Obligation: $345 million (voter approved)
HURF revenue: $110 million (voter approved)
Sewer Revenue: $568 million (voter approved)…

Re: “Endorsements, Part 2

You must not have attended the League of Women Voters and Metropolitan Education Commission debate between Dustin Williams and Margaret Burkholder. It was the clearest demonstration of the superior qualifications of one candidate (Burkholder) over another (Williams) that I have seen in a live debate in recent memory, and served as an excellent example of why live debates are still critically important to help voters make informed choices. I usually vote Democratic, sometimes Green, but Burkholder, Napier, and Bob Burns for AZ Corporation Commission were my three R choices in 2016.

You got it right with Bob Burns and Napier, but really missed the mark on Burkholder. Who cares what she did in the aftermath of the City Council election? She is the best candidate for the office for which she is currently running. After the debate between Burkholder and Williams, I compared notes with several die-hard D voters who had attended: all were persuaded that a vote for Williams would be a vote for weak leadership.

To all who disliked my comment to Mari, I notice that none of you offered an opposing argument. Too easy, Brother. Too easy.

Re: “The Skinny

I was the first person Ally hired and I've known her for about 20 years. I've also been a friend, coworker (Honeywell) and employee of her husband, who's a great person, at Raytheon (twice). Based on my history with her, I can attest to Mr. Nintzel's reporting on this subject. It shouldn't matter if you're a liberal, moderate or conservative - a person with these behaviors should not be in public office. Decisions are made based on their perceptions rather than facts and they don't interact well with people who disagree with them to resolve issues. Most people would not want these characteristics in a public official or leader.

If the 37 year old man-child is What, Again, I'm sure that the "illegals", liberals, those with white guilt and those who sympathize with these groups were blamed for the downloading.

Re: “Editor's Note

"Now I'm wondering what happens with Clinton's election? As women, I don't think we need teabaggers to remind us, as they did with racism, that misogyny is alive and well in the good ol' U.S.A. I don't need that."

People (teabaggers you say, will reject Clinton as president because they are misogynists? I'm not buying it. The majority of voters who dislike and/or distrust Clinton, have varied reasons for their antipathy the least of which is her gender. For me, her responding to a question concerning why she accepted $775,000 from her friends at Goldman Sachs said it all: "that's what they offered."

The Clintons have accepted tens of millions from true misogynists, their wealthy donors in Quatar, Saudi Arabia and the emirates. Want to worry about sexism, start there. She is the luckiest woman alive, gets to run for the presidency against a loud mouthed fool. There are worthy women in the Democratic Party, all of them would be a better choice than Bonnie Darrow.

Re: “Endorsements, Part 2

Prop 205. TV ads are misleading, especially the vet (I'm also a vet) calling the need for Prop 205 to help his medical condition. I empathize, but there is already medical marijuana - which I think is great. 205 will not change his situation with respect to medical needs -- since his medical needs permit marijuana. The VA is a federal organization and, at present, VA employees cannot prescribe marijuana for any reason.

Re: “Editor's Note

I'm disgusted that the a-hole in the White House was not IMPEACHED the first time he crossed that boundary that he signed on first Executive Order that excerpted the Constitution. He, Hillary, Harry and Nancy all be long behind bars. (PS: He is not nor has he been MY president!)

Re: “Danehy

Phil owned a building on Broadway and kept an office there. In the 1980s, my husband worked for a company that rented the rest of the building. Phil and my husband hit it off, maybe because they were both from Chicago, and used to regularly to go lunch together.

It was really cool to visit with Phil in his office and see all his gold and platinum records on the wall. We never thought we would run into such Chicago music history in Tucson!

Re: “Editor's Note

Republican conservative extremist groups such as the Tea-Party ,skin-heads, KKK, the Senate and the House of Representatives did not spring up overnight. It's the same boiling pot that started with the Civil War and has been erupting with destructive tangents from that time.They are the tip of the iceberg that would in a heartbeat DESTROY DEMOCRACY because of their frivolous, insignificant , petty mental machinations. Republican conservatives live by an Ideology which never changes easily. Democrat Liberal Progressives live by a Philosophy which changes and adapts to new situations and stimuli.

Re: “The Skinny

One point of contention: Pima County residents have not voted for and/or endorsed many millions of dollars in the current county debt. Non-voter authorized bonds called COPS, or Certificates of Participation, are approved by the Board of Supervisors without any input from the taxpayers.

One may support or oppose debt financing, be appalled or apathetic about a billion dollar plus debt, but the fact is that much of the bond debt has never been approved by Pima County residents.

Just sayin'...

Re: “Song of the Day: 'The Rovin' Kind' (with Tucson reference) by David Ruffin

This is dope... As great as Ruffin is, he's still underrated... He could sing its smoothly, he could shout, he could take you to church, he could hit the notes, he had power, and that thing that you can't quite quantify thing that ALL the greats have -- the ability to HIT your SOUL! There will never be another...

Re: “Endorsements, Part 2

I voted for Heinz but mostly out of party loyalty. McSally has done a good job-as you point out. She has voted for some awful GOP bills, like defunding Planned Parenthood, but this is required by the GOP party leadership if she wants to get any backing for her legislative priorites-like the A-10 and supporting the military bases in her district. That's just the reality of how the system works. At least she never mentions social issues and doesn't participate in the culture wars.
