Re: “Balancing Act

Here is my thought. While I see the point in everything that has been said, I also see the lack of action being taken. This to me is not a Democrat/Republican or Green issue, this is a human being issue. Even this article written by Nintzel, who seems to be more Democrat then anything, states that when the current democrats took office it was a time of COMPLACENT DEMOCRATS AND SUCCESSFUL REPUBLICANS. I do not see much progress in this city. I fully understand that some of these issues were created prior to the current council, I do not see what they have done to change or rectify where they are. Kuddos to McClusky in my opinion, he is willing to discuss budget. I personally like the fact that he is not a "career political figure." I think that it is nice to have a person that is in it for Tucson not himself. I further agree with a previous thread that states all the endorsements are a joke. These organizations are party heavy and it is quite clear which ones are going to endorse which canditate. For example: if Jeffery Dahmer were running on the Democratic ticket, I believe the Star would endorse him. Simply because he is on the Democratic ticket. Mr. Nintzel if you had done your due dilligence in writing this article you would not have focused on the fact that Mr. McClusky had not voted in City Elections. You do mention that he served in the United States Air Force, but failed to mention that during some of these elections he was overseas in Iraq definding your right to vote and your right to misrepresent facts in order to shed a negative light upon and indivudual. I will be completely honest and say that there are three races in this election and only one candidate McClusky has earned my vote. It is time for a change in Tucson however, its more in the apathetic attitude we have developed and a party issue. We live in a society that strives to eliminate labels in our society however, in order to exercise your most important right as an American, you must choose a label. I am curious to know what Mr. Nintzel will do when he no longer has labels to slap on individuals and we have a non partisan election.....
