Tucson's Visionaries Revealed

Posted By on Thu, Oct 1, 2009 at 8:07 PM

We got our first peek at the Tucson Vision Committee today, when the independent campaign that's targeting Democrats in this year's City Council election filed a campaign-finance report.

The biggest contributor is Michael Goodman, the man who is destroying the quality of life of homeowners north of the University of Arizona by demolishing existing houses and replacing them with gargantuan mini-dorms, with little regard to the existing residents. Goodman kicked in $5,000 of the $9,000 that the committee reporting raising between Sept. 15 and Sept. 21.

The committee showed only three other contributors through Sept. 21: Grace Howard of Phoenix ($500), who evidently has a vision of making money in Tucson; investor Charlie Bass of Tucson ($1,000); and Richard Studwell of Tucson, who has been angry with council Democrats for some time now ($2,500).

We reported on the group's first ad last week.
