Re: “Editor's Note

It is difficult to leave a job you love, but your new job will be rewarding. Bringing change to Arizona is needed. And the grass roots is where it happens. Good luck and keep up the good work.
Here's to a brighter future.

Tammy doesn't like the N.F.L. draft, so that makes it an abomination. Nobody should watch it because she doesn't like it. Could you imagine NEVER being effective at your job? You ought to know.

Re: “Hell Yes!

Why is this not a Bond Election rather than a Sales Tax? As the article points out, the 2012 Bond Election Moneys were properly spent.
The problem that I have with the Sales Tax is that from the Beginning of the Year (January 1, 2017) All Sales Tax Collections are now processed through the Arizona Department of Revenue in Phoenix. And we know how much Phoenix and the State want to take the Tucson and Pima County funds to be used in other parts of the State. (Where are all of our HURF Funds?)
Even the Chamber says the City has been spending the Bond Funds properly.

This election should be a Bond Election rather than a Sales Tax Election.

Re: “Hell Yes!

Well, the ultimate reason we have lousy roads is a car culture that is incredibly wasteful and virtually impossible to maintain.
To show how ingrained this culture is, we have the spectacle of the local progressive paper trumpeting the "vital" need to spend 100's of millions more on it. And what are we buying? Cars and trucks for police and fire as well as the roads themselves.
All this in order to cross increasingly long miles of sprawl which looks like everywhere else: mostly covered with asphalt for cars to drive and park.

Re: “Hell Yes!

Vote NO on tax increase. We never get what they promise. Don't be fooled again. This City needs change of leadership.
