AZ Illustrated Politics: Miranda's Retirement, Judge Slaps City of Tucson for Withholding Docs, Sunnyside Recall & More

Posted By on Fri, May 23, 2014 at 8:52 PM

On this week's penultimate episode of AZ Illustrated Politics: Andrea Kelly sat down with former California congressman Frank Riggs to talk about why he's joining the crowded field of Republicans seeking the governor's seat. Then Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Lea Marquez Peterson and Arizona Education Network President Ann-Eve Pedersen sat down with me to talk about City Manager Richard Miranda's retirement; the council's ongoing agonizing over changes to bus fares and routes; why a Pima County judge slapped the city of Tucson with a big fine for failing to turn over memos and emails related to the collapsed deal to sell El Rio Golf Course to Grand Canyon University; the ousting of two incumbents in this week's Sunnyside School District recall; and more.
