This slimy developer Farley is all ticked off over a road he wants for a Walmart, something to the tune of 16 to 24M$ from Pima taxpayers. Walmarts do not bring jobs to an area, they take away better jobs, suck money from a community, and hurt small local businesses. Farley and all his dark money friends(aka contributors) can move to NJ where his political shell is organized, and then Arizona would be indeed brighter. Bruce Ash can go along, too.
Not to belittle the un-enployment & poverty rate. No one mentioned, that Pima's un-employment rate is influenced by the considerable sized reservations which have rates approaching 50%. Yes, they are part of our greater community and need solutions. However, for a true national level comparison, we need an adjusted value for a more apple to apple comparison to evaluate how Pima in general is doing.
In general, Arizona's national image sucks, much propagated by our governor. It is viewed as a very violent state, last in public school funding, near highest spending on prisons, etc... Just as this image has hurt the tourism industry even harder in these economic times, these attributes do not inspire confidence for the financial money centers to invest, develop, and move their employees to Arizona. We have to change our state's image. It is going to take a fair amount of time and energy to reverse this image.
As "Koz" points out there are some positive thinga happening, and we need to build on these successes.
Ms Millers says all she knows is the truth, but she sure as heck does not seem to care about it. Miller shoots without checking or knowing the facts.
- Miller doesn't seem to care about abiding by election laws.
- Miller seems to be supported by outside 'dark' interests who are incorporated in New Jersey with DC lawyers. Ms Miller seems to be one who will go to the highest bidder, whom ever they maybe, and we may not know that for some time depending on the follow-up on the complaint.
- Miller continues to propagate falsehoods, as the Weekly debunked in "We call BS" http://www.tucsonweekly.com/tucson/we-call…
- At a recent venue, Ms Miller made some lame old false attack on Nancy Young Wright's work on the Amphi school board. A similar attacks in the past were pretty much summed up in an Oct 2008 Emil Franzi conservative editorial which said "a letter published in this paper last week insanely attacked Democrat State Rep. Nancy Young Wright and completely misrepresented her actions on the Amphi School Board. She was the main player in cleaning that corrupt board up. "
I know Nancy Young Wright has the track record of integrity to look after the taxpayers money. Wright is fiscally conservative, very smart, and if something is out of order or 'smells', as the case was at Amphi, she will not be shy about asking the questions to insure proper business practices are being followed.
How do you get an endangered owl to dump? Is there an endangered owl store. " Hot mess" seems to making stuff up, to pander to her tea party wingnuts and her Phoenix developer sugar-daddies.
Babbitt does not attach his name to anyone, only to those with high integrity. Nancy Young Wright record of cleaning up and reforming Amphi is a testament to that. She'd be a great supervisor she will work for taxpayers and citizens.
There is another woman in the race, Nancy Young Wright, who has orders of magnitude of integrity over Ally Miller and a sense for the real facts. She voted to keep the HURF transportation money headed to Pima county, while the Republicans swept it away.
Ally Miller -- another tea party wacko --screw the real facts, listen to how Ioud I rant.
Bennett and other republicans want to kill public education. Let the people vote on the funding education. The Legislature continues to promote an image of a really lousy society similar to a 3rd world. With funding levels at the bottom, it is very hard to attract business to Arizona, they cant bring the top talent to a state that funds eduction poorly. The decision makers at the eastern money centers will not invest due to the difficultly to bring the bright young talent to a backward place.
