Garbage In, Garbage Out

Posted By on Fri, Jun 15, 2007 at 10:42 AM

Had to laugh today at Pima County Democratic Party chairman Vince Rabago's explanation of why the Democrats didn't field a mayoral candidate.

As Rob O'Dell of the morning daily reports:

Rabago said there's not as much energy in this race as in 2005 for the Democrats because the party now has a solid majority on the council, whereas in 2005 they were the minority with three seats out of seven on the council.

There is also not one big, driving emotional issue this year, Rabago said, unlike 2005 when outrage from the raising of the garbage fee inflamed the passions of voters.

Last time we checked, that garbage fee was still in place, despite the fact that, as Rabago points out, the Democrats now control the council and the 2005 candidates, Nina Trasoff and Karin Uhlich, railed against it. Funny how that's no longer an issue, isn't it?
