Friday Roundtable: More Opposition to the Public Safety First Initiative

Posted By on Sat, Oct 3, 2009 at 10:25 AM

UA professors Tanis Salant and Tom Volgy stop by Arizona Illustrated's Friday Roundtable. A good observation from Tanis that throws cold water on the idea that reforming the city charter is going to magically result in better elected officials: "There isn't a structure, a form of local government that guarantees any sort of person will run for local office and be elected."

Both Volgy and Salant oppose the Public Safety First Initiative because it's bad public policy to enshrine spending requirements in the city charter. Translation: Prop 200 will lead to deep cuts to city services or tax increases.

Watch it all after the jump.
