Who Are These Fed-Up Tucsonans?

Posted By on Mon, Sep 21, 2009 at 7:17 PM

A new political ad is up on YouTube targeting Democratic Tucson City Council members Nina Trasoff and Karin Uhlich, who are both up for re-election in November.

We hear the ad also aired during the UA football game on Saturday, but we didn't see it ourselves. Anyone else out there catch it?

Here's a wrinkle: The ad says it was paid for by Lots of Fed-Up Tucsonans, but a visit to the Tucson City Clerk's Web site doesn't show any such committee. However, something called the Tucson Vision Committee was registered last week, on Thursday, Sept. 17. Could these visionaries be fed up?

Update: We're told by Adam Kinsey, executive director of the Pima County Democratic Party, that the ad carried a tag saying it was paid for the Tucson Vision Committee when it ran on TV during the Wildcat game on Saturday night.
