Your Chance Sound Off Tonight

Posted By on Tue, Apr 28, 2009 at 8:58 AM

Don't forget: The Tucson City Council will be hearing from angry citizens at the Tucson Convention Center tonight beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Most council meetings are pretty boring, but this one promises to be a real hoot. As we explained in this week's Skinny, council members are considering nearly $18 million in new taxes on rental payments, utility bills and much, much more. The Arizona MultiHousing Association is busing in apartment dwellers from across the city and promising free box lunches to people who protest. And, of course, we'll have the teabag crowd.

If you can't make it, it'll be carried live on Channel 12 on your Cox Cable system, and I'm gonna make an effort to liveblog it, although I can imagine any number of technical difficulties that could cause problems with that plan. Stop by later tonight and we'll see how it's going.
