No the "TEA" in Tea Party means "totally erroneous assessments".
Big Ed you are dead wrong! Nancy Young Wright knows how to challenge the status quo. She did it on the Amphi School Board & cleaned up that Board. In contrast Ally has no governing board experience. Furthermore, she makes unsubstantiated charges & refuses to talk with people who prove her to be wrong. She also has a "Hulk angry" attitude, as noted by Thelma Grimes of The Explorer, which is the last thing we need in a public servant. She would be a disaster just like Ed Moore was some years ago. As for being a fiscal conservative, Nancy Young Wright has over 900 contributors to her campaign and has run a "pay as you go" campaign. Ally Miller on the other hand has loaned her campaign money. Ally's problem is not only that she has things to learn but that she is incapable of learning them.
The Tea Party Republicans are a very strong presence in the Republican primary in Dist. 1, but I think Ally Miller's Tea Party ties will be a turn off to the voters in the general election. How can she honestly say she is supportive of fixing streets? It was her Tea Party friends in the state legislature like Rep. Terri Proud & Sen. Al Melvin who "balanced" the state budget by "sweeping" money that was supposed to go towards Pima County roads & applying it to the state budget instead. Furthermore Miller is someone who is quick to criticize but unable to tolerate criticism directed at her which questions the accuracy of her charges. She would be a destructive force on the Board of Supervisors.
Isn't it interesting that Ally Miller is quick to make charges against others (i.e., Pima County is spending money inappropriately), but then refuses to respond to charges directed to her (i.e., Nintzel asking her for documentation of her charges). The problem with Ally Miller & her Tea Party allies is that they aren't reality-based. They feel certain that they know the truth and then refuse to acknowledge facts that don't conform to their conspiracy theories (e.g. Obama was born in Kenya). We had someone on the Pima County Board of Supervisors before like Ally Miller. His name was Ed Moore, and when he & his allies took over Pima County government, it was a disaster. Beware.
If McClusky thinks Asta is a "nice guy", then that's all we need to know about McClusky's judgment: bad.
