Re: “T.H.R.E.A.T. Watch: Ducey Descends To the Depths Of Trumpism

I take it not all of your readers were fans of the Obama's, Clinton's and Biden's. Yet Trump likes taking credit for the economy that was left for him to ruin. The only thing he really knows about is grabbing! His own words.

Re: “Strong Start Tucson 2.0: A New Early Childhood Education Proposal

"VIGILANCE" on ALL Government spending is good advice. In addition wishful thinking that awareness and involvement of the community in public affairs is happening. Do not short change education because we suspect political motives behind funding programs. Many Democrats support education even when many of them are victims of regressive taxation to pay for those programs and projects. Branding does not lift anything. {Democrats are lazy} On examination research the "high cost" of the lack of education and skill training. Spend wisely today or surely spent more tomorrow. Yes, "vigilance" is necessary but no excuse to ignore public need such as "early child education'" and "preschool" investment.

Re: “Strong Start Tucson 2.0: A New Early Childhood Education Proposal

Great Discussion. Too bad a broader range of the community are not involved and exposed to "problems and solutions" regarding early childhood education. The foundation on which we build holds the key to a solid structure. Education is the pillar upon which a rich and successful life is developed. Each and every person benefits from an educated society. It is not just just an investment for a single individual, education lifts the entire community.

Re: “Strong Start Tucson 2.0: A New Early Childhood Education Proposal

First, every effort to enhance educational opportunities in Arizona should be supported and approved provided they answer to a locally elected governing body. The County Supervisors and the county budget should not be responsible for funding education. Approval should be limited until a local tax plan can be approved the voters. While personally I would favor using the property tax, a sales tax is an alternative. Citizens realizing the pressure on county revenue and the overwhelming county budget requirements just might answer with a favorable vote. That and the proponents for early childhood education would have Pima County Preschool Investment Program "up and running" to judge the benefits. Faced with continuing with a voter approved reliable revenue source could be the correct answer.
