Re: “Show Us the Money

Maybe Secretary Reagan would prefer to postpone an improved campaign finance reporting system until after she has run for reelection in 2018.

Re: “Larger Than Life

Martin was a blessing to his family, his community, his party and his country. Long and fondly will he be remembered.

Re: “The Skinny

Colonel Retired McSally, she who served in USAF 22 years and calls it 26, does something good -- the mental health legislation and has to try to add something not so good at all at all: letting people who should probably not be allowed near firearms to possess them more easily than they can presently. There's a commonality here: not letting well enough alone. And all this while, after crushing her opponent in the election, she's whining about her desperate need for more money to fend off her next opponent.

Re: “Guest Opinion

If I remember correctly, Steve first left the Republican party and then registered and ran for his second term as a Democrat because the Republican party, even here in Pima County, proved inhospitable to a centrist Republican council member. Republican or Democrat, Steve is the same intelligent, honest, hard-working council member for whom I wish I could vote.

Re: “Republican Clodfelter Moves Ahead in Central Tucson House Race

If Clodfelter wins, Tucson and Pima County lose. Nice guy but doubtfully willing or strong enough to stand up to the Maricopa-centric GOP caucus in the House. His site quotes Bruce Wheeler as saying Dems are ineffective in the legislature. He doesn't add that Bruce says nobody has less clout than a Republican from Pima County. Todd will go along to get along and we'll have one fewer House member to represent us.

Re: “Raising Hell

"We learned about our messaging and we absolutely need to improve how we message this to the community," Foster said.
First thing TUSD board and staff need to learn is to communicate honestly, factually and in plain English. Foster's statement quoted above would seem to illustrate the reluctance of the incumbents to do just that. 'Messaging'????? 'How we message to the community'????? C'mon, Kristel. Is this the way you talk in the classroom? Message us no messages. Just the facts, ma'am!

Re: “Endorsements, Part 2

UA Law professor Engel is Kirsten, not Kristen but by any name she is one of the best equipped candidates to come along in years.
I like your rationale for endorsing Chris Ackerley but disagree with your decision. He's a Republican, will mostly vote with Republicans, is unlikely to be a force in their caucus and sending him back to the House makes it that much more difficult for Democrats to whittle away at the Republican majority. Southern Arizona Republicans in the Legislature are doubly negative because they can't or won't stop their caucus from interfering with local home rule of our city, towns and county. Please vote for Daniel Hernandez if you're an LD 2 voter. Loved your two lines on Andrea Dalessandro!!!
