Re: “The Skinny

Well, once again She'sGottaGo opts for name-calling rather than fact-finding. And to join the I-11 gang says a lot -- that he/she doesn't give a flying fart about wildlife, about poor rural communities, about drug smuggling, about more development equals less water, or about a corrupt crony politics in Pima County. And those who click on the Like button -- I guess you're camp followers too. Weakly readers used to be independent thinkers, just like the Weakly used to be a free press.

Poor AVL, #LyingAlly’s flying monkey boy to the bitter end.
Hope he’s still here for the I-11 ribbon cutting...

Re: “The Skinny

I agree AVL and respect your opinion. Ms Miller worked harder on our stinking roads than anybody there. I will miss her as everybody does not need to agree in lockstep, or you can see what we got with the Democrats in Congress. We must have some variety of thought. This paper could use some too.

Re: “The Skinny

True to form, the Weakly's editor publicly gloats when he perceives that the target of his years of bullying has given up. Just like the bully in the White House. That's how bullies are -- mean-spirited and nasty to the end. I do not share Ms. Miller's politics, and I don't live in her district, but I respect that she has been the lone voice challenging the deep-seated corruption in Pima County, saying a loud NO when the rest of the Board of Supervisors is kissing the County Administrator's butt. -- an appointed semi-dictator who is ruining good county departments by staffing them with incompetent cronies; who is -- like the editor -- vindictive to those whose challenge him; one of the highest-paid county administrators in the nation who has tried to double-tax us time and again; a hireling who has championed an Avra Valley Interstate 11 for years in violation of the elected BOS's own policies and gotten away with it, no matter the threats to communities and wildlife. No, cronies come first: the Cardon Family. Diamond Ventures. There was a time when the Weakly and other Tucson Local Media papers did their job and exposed the shenanigans instead of being sycophants. That was before the Weakly went "green," when it was still a real newspaper. Thank goodness the Independent and the Sentinel still provide some semblance of a free press.

Re: “The Skinny

If we want good candidates rather than the Millers and Trumps, reasonable people of both parties must vote in primaries.

Re: “The Skinny

What an amazing record! She's obviously ready for greater things from her party, having ticked all the "crazy" boxes possible while a supervisor. On to new (R) frontiers!

Re: “The Skinny

I think voters might have gone for a 3% raise for Council, which is about what regular "civilians" have received over the past years. It was the principle of the matter, even though as an individual the cost to me would have been less than $20/year.

Nitzel presenting facts and feelings readers will reach their own conclusions? How about more of that?

Re: “The Skinny

Party affiliation was visible on the envelope? That's crazy. That needs to be changed immediately.

Congratulations to the winners, and good luck. I'm sure nothing will change as developers continue to run the city. Turnout was, indeed, impressive. And thank heaven voters overwhelmingly vetoed the silly sanctuary proposition. Tucson doesn't need to waste time inserting itself into national politics.
