I'd like to congratulate Nancy on a well-run campaign. She is a thoughtful and dedicated public servant and I'm sure an opportunity for her talents will persent itself.
So after Kelly's ads say that he's a small businessman, now he's saying he's just an employee:
"Even if the company itself—which is not my company—"
Mr. Kelly's father's company (Don Kelly Construction) is based in Montana. Mr. Kelly was in Texas managing a project for the compnay. Mr. Kelly moved back to Tucson with his wife and children after Rep. Giffords resigned her seat in Congress. If Mr. Kelly loses the election I would expect his family will move wherever his father sends him to manage the next project.
Mr. Kelly's family's company is based in Montana. He was in Texas running a project for them. His wife and kids moved back to Tucson with him when Rep. Giffords resigned her position. If he loses this race I would expect them to move wherever his dad tells him to move to manage the next project.
Antenori says the state may challenge federal regulations that require funding for the programs. "Maybe we should call their bluff on it," Antenori says. "We'll end up in court."
Will somebody please tell me why Antenori is soooo anxious for a federal court battle? First the light bulbs, then 1070, and now health care. Picking a fight with the federal government seems to be the only criteria guiding his votes at a time when we can ill afford to be paying more money to lawyers.
It's a sad day when an elected official openly admits that raising money is more important to him than talking to his contituents. Seems like it's time for voters to put a halt to Antenori's arrogance.
The whole point of democracy is that voters have the opportunity to learn about candidates and their positions so that they can make informed decisions about who they want to be their representative in the government. Any time I hear about someone trying to shut down communication - whether it's boycotting a debate or censoring a newspaper - a danger signal goes off in my head. People say Antenori is anti-government. I think he's anti-democracy.
