OMG!!! I can't believe I'm the first to comment. Well I just have to say that this video makes me embarrassed to be WHITE and AMERICAN!!! Ignorance is NOT bliss people....
LD28 AZ State Senate race with:
Paula Aboud, Ted Dowing, Greg Krino and Dave Ewoldt
My letter about the LD28 Senate race, was provoked by a lie being spread by party insiders, here in Tucson.
The lie is that a vote for Ted Downing is that a vote for Greg Krino. This is not true.
A vote for Ted is a vote for Ted. If you believe he is the best candidate, vote for him, that's what a democracy is about. It's not a three way race with the third person coming in hundreds of thousands of votes behind, but taking from one of the two major candidates. It's really a three way race with Greg Krino trailing.
Why does Paula always have to resort to dirty politics? Why can't she just allow people to look at the candidates and make their own choice? I will tell you why, because she's scared. She's scared that if voters realized the really poor job she's doing, showing up to vote only 50% of the time, even though our tax money is paying her for full-time, they wouldn't even consider voting for her. Even though her job was less than satisfactory, she fights ugly til the bitter end, resorting to mailers filled with lies blatant, mean spirited lies!
So, is Tucson going to let her sit there for four more years working Part-time, being paid to work Full-time?
When Ted represented LD28, he worked really hard for us, instead of working hard assassinating someone’s good character, for votes.
The Ted that Paula talks about is a fictional character, made up by people who just want to WIN at all costs, even if it costs the voters a voice.
Doesn’t the party want what’s best for Tucson? Or have political parties become like the mafia, standing together, even when people break ethical and moral codes?
I would NEVER vote for Aboud. And, if THIS is the way the Pima County Democrats operate here in Tucson, I'm changing my party affiliation to Independent, effective immediately...
Thank you Ted Downing and every other politician who have stood up to those who play dirty and still win.
I’m hoping for Tucson’s sake, that this is not one of those times!
Democrat – LD28
I don't understand why this is on the Tucson Weekly blog, but I will go ahead and write what I think.
Paula Aboud has spent this entire election season, being just as dirty as she was in 2006 and I'm hoping that Tucson voters in LD28 see what I see.
I'm sick of politicians who think they can do a lousy job, play dirty politics, than keep their seat. It's very sad to me.
VOTE TED DOWNING, he's the only chance we have....
This is the thing....
I'm an American FIRST. I will vote for Ted Downing, because he's the ONLY choice, as far as I'm concerned.
Also, I can't believe I have to read ANOTHER one of Aboud's false claims on here!!! He collected enough signatures right away, that's how he got on the ballot to begin with. And how nice of her to help Ewoldt collect signatures to get on the ballot.
As far as money goes, he isn't focusing on fundraising, he isn't focusing on money, because he isn't planning on spending a bunch of money, he just wants to reach voters.
How nice for a Democratic party backed candidate to talk about money, when she's BACKED by a PARTY....
PLEASE don't let her serve another term Tucson, for ALL of our sakes....
With Democrats like Aboud, who needs Republicans?
I'm ashamed and appauled that voters, would even consider voting for her again. We pay her full time wages, but she only shows up to work 50% of the time. I just don't get that.
But most importantly, I just don't get how she can represent us so poorly, than finishes off with lies and distortions, to try and gain votes.
If Ted Dowing doesn't win this race, I'm leaving the district, because that means, I'm surrounded by people who aren't even paying attention. Either that or they just go along with the herd, like sheep.
I am excited to be supporting Ted Downing. I wonder if Aboud's supporters are actually excited, when there's nothing to be excited about?
Ted Downing wants to represent his ALL of his constituents, REGARDLESS of party affiliation, NO OTHER candidate in that race can say that.
I would have to say that I agree with most of your endorsements, but I just don't get how you could endorse someone who's missed so much work? As bubby said Aboud missed HALF her votes in 2009 and she hasn't gotten nearly as much done as Ted Downing did, when he had that seat.
She doesn't appreciate that the voters elected her to work for THEM. The only way to let her know that it's not enough for her to be a Democrat, is to vote her OUT....
