    Today was a decisive victory for residents of our county. For two years now, an overwhelming majority of people who’ve spoken out about Operation Stonegarden, have done so in clear opposition. Any humanitarian aid for any cause across our county, should not come from a collaborative grant program that dictates oversight by US Border Patrol. It is an absolute injustice to provide supplemental funds for our Sheriff’s department, on the backs of discriminatory policies directed at our indigenous and immigrant communities.

    Representative McSally was one of the last signatories into the newly formed "problem solvers caucus". She's been making the media rounds in the last week singing political kumbaya, but in those appearances, the problems she seems intent on "solving" include scaling back the the coverage requirements for small businesses from 50 employees to 500, and messing with tax credits for medical equipment. Those don't sound like market-stabilizing ideas to me. Arizonans will not be fooled. She's on record. She voted to take healthcare away from 24 million people.

    I expect a more thorough quality of journalism here, and agree with Dennis's sentiments. I'm disappointed with this piece. We cannot take our elected officials at their word. If we could, we wouldn't need the Weekly.

    Because of course John Huppenthal would comment...that's what racist-fallen-elected-official-internet-trolls do.

    He has done no work for this community. Commendably he has served in the military, but as far as Tucson goes, he only came to and from town when it was politically advantageous.

    Come on Southern Arizona, we're not this dumb. We can't let Jesse Kelly bully his way into office. He's like a mini, more extreme Romney. Say whatever you have to say to get elected.

    It will be interesting to see if Barber decides to run for CD2. Paula Aboud is great and certainly has my support going forward.

    As a matter of fact he DOES represent the majority of those in his district quite well, hence his continuous re-election. He's a man with principle. What lobbyists control his vote? The answer is none. While mining companies have tried to get their hands on our beautiful Grand Canyon for years, he has continuously fought them off. Never has he spoken of an opponent in some passive agressive 'tea party' tone.....Oh and did you mean "senior" or Señor? If you're going to tell it, spell it.
