Rep. Vic Williams: Not on His Best Behavior Last Night

Posted By on Wed, May 18, 2011 at 5:01 PM

Apparently Rep. Vic Williams would prefer not to be associated with the sliver of the city that falls within his district, according to Bud Foster, whose KOLD piece on last night's contentious Pima County Board of Supervisors meeting has this delightful quote from Williams:

And he also took the city of Tucson to task for what he called the "miserable failures of Rio Nuevo."

"We have to work with the city of Tucson and the downtown area because we see it becoming more decayed, less prosperous and we don't want to be shackled to a corpse in our success," he says.
