Re: “Courting Votes

Apparently the one constant in every election since Noland's first is Noland's arrogance and double talk. Ms. Noland does not give the taxpayers enough credit for seeing through the misstatements she makes.

“Regarding DiFrank's criticism about public records, Noland says that the Arizona Supreme Court has asked all counties to have all records go through the same portal for online access.”

Noland opted out of the “same portal” in 2003/4 which was for viewing which was voluntary. How long is everyone going to tolerate her double talk? If you go to this portal, all the counties have their records accessible, including criminal files. Currently, criminal files are not accessible in Pima County Superior Court unless you go down to the courthouse. Why is it even the smaller counties have these records available and Pima County does not - - doesn't sound like she wants these records readily available to the public.

"The concerns brought up in Storts' letter from three years ago are no longer an issue, Noland says. "We took the information from the letter very seriously, responded to it and fixed the problem. We were down (clerks) at that time; several had retired, and we hadn't been able to fill the positions. ... I'm not perfect, and I don't expect all my people to be perfect, but we work to correct our mistakes."

How exactly did she correct her mistakes? The budgets filed with the Board of Supervisors show a steady decline in FTEs: 06/07 - 230.1; 07/8 - 226.1; 08/09 - 221.5; 09/10 - 217.5 and 10/11 - 212.6 Is she training, hiring qualified clerks - no. By the way, this information is available on-line.
