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: “Best Marijuana Dispensary

I completely disagree! While I certainly think Downtown deserves accolades, I think the Botanica staff is fantastic! I've only ever had great experiences each time I've been in there.

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: “Bosnian Delights

This is a tremendously touching story. Thanks for introducing us to Chef Alisah's. It would have been helpful to mention menu and location. Why exclude that stuff in Chow article spotlighting this hidden gem?
