Sal Baldenegro articulates well the important historical perspective of why the fight to save over 100 acres of public green space is so important. The Mayor put the sale of El Rio on the agenda on Monday for the council to vote on Tuesday, hoping to rush this deal through before the public knew what was happening, but the Barrio Hollywood Neighborhood Association and concerned citizens like Sal, the golfers, Tucson Clean and Beautiful, and about a dozen other neighborhood association residents rose up and killed this bad deal. We must make sure that our public land is taken off the auction block for good. Now the question is: what is the city trying to hide by refusing to release public documents?
