Re: “Dispensaries Divided

Greed and infighting kept the last initiative from passing. We do not want a semi-monopoly of providers and growers.

Re: “Heated Struggle

This Proposition has been fueled by hatred of APS (well deserved, BTW), who, with dark money, have bought and paid for their regulators at the Corporation Commission for the last two election cycles.

However, that being said, a citizens' initiative is not the proper vehicle for an issue such as this. Like many, if not most initiatives, it is ambiguous and poorly written, and if it passes, will be litigated in the courts for a decade.

I find it enlightening that not one of the candidates for ACC Commissioner, from either Party, have endorsed this.

As for the debate itself on solar energy, both sides have valid points. We need to take better advantage of our natural resource. Most people with common sense agree. However, it will slam the lower and middle class, as well as small business, and beat up the economy, if done the way the initiative demands.

I recommend a No on Prop 127, and then vote for ACC Commissioners who you feel will best take us forward on renewable energy.

Re: “And They’re Off!

The Democrats would have had a much better chance in this race with a different candidate. Ducey is vulnerable, but not against Garcia.

Re: “Columnist Clapback

Wow. Hoffman's response must have struck a raw nerve with Ricardo.

He went on a venomous rant that addressed none of Hoffman's comments at all. Maybe it is because he can't.

Re: “The Skinny

My spouse is a Democrat and has received her early ballot. I am a Libertarian who has chosen to vote in the Republican primary. However, we discuss politics, and candidates.

She (and I) are so disgusted with the mud and the lies that Matt Heinz and Ann Kirkpatrick are throwing at each other on the airwaves, that she filled out her ballot with someone else.

My thoughts on Kirkpatrick are that she, in this campaign, has repudiated everything she has ever stood for (I used to respect her), and even if she wins the primary, I don't think she can veer back far enough to the center to win a general election.

Re: “Lefty Appeal

Kenneth Groves, I believe you have the scenario totally reversed. The media, celebrities, and the activists have moved the centerline to the 75 yard line, but in the other direction.

However, I do agree with you that Goldwater would not be welcome in today's Republican Party. He was way too libertarian.

However, on the Democratic side, John F Kennedy would not be welcome in today's Democratic Party.

The problem with both mainline parties is that they think they know better than you what is good for you, and will not hesitate to use the power of government to enforce their views.

Re: “Negative Zone

Kirkpatrick has veered so far left in her battle with Heinz, that I do not believe she can come far enough back toward the middle to win in the general election, even if she wins the primary.

The current tone of her campaign ads repudiate everything she has ever stood for..
