Re: “It’s time for Tucson’s mayor and council to get a raise

Build roads that don't run with water when it rains -- and not that cheap chip seal crap.

Increase police response time with more officers and community service officers.

Stop getting sued for stupid stuff that you should have known about.

Stop shaking down any new business ventures for money up front.

Stop making deals with questionable real estate developers.

Bring back incentives for movies and television shows to film here.

Don't piss off Raytheon.

Don't piss off the U.S. Air Force.

Leverage the University of Arizona to create business opportunities and community value.

Last, but not least, work within the law, or work to change the laws, to make Tucson a safe place for everyone to include those who come here at the peril of their lives in their home countries.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Trump Lynching

Mr. Groves,

Ask Hillary. She and her BFF Deborah Wasserman Schultz froze Bernie Sanders out of the 2016 race and she is trying to poison the well with Tulsi Gabbard this time around.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Trump Lynching

Mr. Gandy,

While I stand by my comments, I understand your statement and I fully support your different perspective, especially based on your personal experience growing up in the time and place you describe.

It is too bad our so-called political leaders cannot open their eyes or minds to realize that not everyone has the same point of view and that respectfully acknowledging others freedoms and rights is the basis of our country.

Trying to make everyone think and feel the same way and fall into line with a single leader is the antithesis of America.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Trump Lynching

My grandmothers used to say "two wrongs do not make a right" and if there was ever a clearer example this "cartoon" is it.

The claim by the president that he is being "lynched" by the Democratic Party is classic Trump using hyperbole of the highest -- or lowest order, depending on your point of view -- with a full measure of racism that only he can get away with.

However; there is a time and place, as well as appropriate mediums and venues for conversations that are so hurtful and vile to Americans that have suffered and are still suffering crimes that have left a permanent mark on the history of this nation and scars that cannot be forgotten with wishful thinking and empty platitudes.

I fully support the First Amendment and freedom of speech, but just like yelling fire in a crowded theater is not protected, using a vision of a racially-driven murder and method of domestic terrorism for an editorial jab is yelling fire in a crowded theater.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Quid Pro Uh-Oh

It is ironic -- and sad -- that media people and democrats continue to go to the one person whose arrogance, hubris and blind ambition have done as much damage to the state of American politics and the nation as the current occupant of the Oval Office.

It would have been better for all if she had remained lost in the woods and taken up residence in a she shed version of a Ted Kaczynski cabin.

As for listening to someone making not-so-veiled accusations against a woman who has honorably served this country in uniform -- as opposed to riding her husband's coat tail to power and ignoring that same husband's frequently dropped trousers -- I have neither the time nor inclination.
