Another Person Who Won't Be Tucson's Next Mayor

Posted By on Tue, Jun 28, 2011 at 5:00 PM

I applaud anyone willing to run for mayor. While the pay is pretty good for a job in this town (am I right?), this might not be the time to try to take the reins, with Rio Nuevo prosecutions still a possibility and the general malaise of the economy a likely issue for some time. Plus, since the Republicans couldn't seem to get the whole signature-gathering thing together, there won't be a lot of political drama between now and November (sorry, Greens), so any additional action to help this guy who has to write stuff a few times a day would be helpful. There are only so many videos of cats out there.

While David Karr seems like a decent guy, having spent a lot of time working in Arizona's prisons and then taking care of his ailing mother, running as a write-in on the Democratic Party's ballot might not work out so well. However, if he can develop a viable plan to bring Don Francisco Presents (and hopefully, its sister program Sabado Gigante, although Karr doesn't go that far) to town as he mentions near the end of what could be best describes as a manifesto on his website, he's got my vote. I'm not so sure about turning Speedway and 22nd Street into one-way streets, but this town could definitely use the boost that would come from a few Univision programs being filmed here.
