More Opposition to Public Safety First Initiative: Don Diamond Gives $$$

We're told that legendary land speculator Don Diamond has given $1K to the campaign to defeat Prop 200, the Public Safety First Initiative that Tucson voters will decide on Nov. 3. Diamond joins the Tucson Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, the Metropolitan Pima Alliance and Cox Cable as members of the local business establishment who oppose the initiative, which would force the city to spend an additional $63 million a year on police and firefighters.

Diamond is no friend of the Tucson City Council; after the firing of City Manager Mike Hein earlier this year, Diamond dismissed the body as "dysfunctional."
