Re: “Three’s a Crowd: Randi Dorman

SalMinella, I generally have very little use for either party, as the Republicans are run by the religious right nutcases, and the Democrats are run by the economically illiterate left.

I am being kind here, because I have much harsher descriptions of both.

Very scary. A more than semi-sane Democrat running for office. I am not sure Tucson is ready for that. The devil is always in the details, but based upon what I have read here, I would be willing to vote for her.

Re: “Revenge Of the Privatizers: Arizona, Oklahoma, West Virginia

The Democrats blew an opportunity in 2018. With the disarray in the State GOP leadership (I am being kind), and a vulnerable governor, you may have been able to get a majority in the legislature, and if you had put up a viable candidate against Ducey, you could also have had the governorship.

Instead, you kowtowed to the Education lobby, and put up a one-trick pony who had no clue about anything else, and lost.

Don't expect the same thing to happen in 2020 and 2022.

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.
