Re: “The Old Pueblo Blues

Yes, I think that's where a lot of confusion came on that. We held a rally (in August or September, I believe) which was just a "support the police" rally, but there were a few people with pre-fab Prop 200 signs, so it got billed in the media as a Prop 200 rally. Oh well, lesson learned.

Prop 200 was a pretty poorly thought out gimmick. I think Steve and Ben could have handily won without it. But I don't think anyone outside of City Hall realized we'd actually be faced with the possibility of both increased taxes AND less public safety positions.

January 5 should be interesting, hope to see you there!

Re: “The Old Pueblo Blues

Luke -- As I told you at the Tucson First rally, we neither supported nor opposed Prop 200, only supported public safety on the principle that it is one of the very few core reasons for even having local government.

Given that the City Council has wasted so much money in the past few years, I believe most Tea Partiers oppose the renter's tax and property tax outright. We refuse to believe that his is solely the fault of a souring economy; it is also the result of years of city mismanagement. People do not trust them to make the right decisions for this city because of it. While everyone else has taken pay cuts and reduced their spending, the city is trying to reduce their own hurt by shifting it to the taxpayer.

As for Councilman Kozachik's article, I think read it as him giving a backhand to pretty much everyone in the business community pretty evenly for being so disorganized and petty.

But you have to rock the foundation to make things happen. I think we're about to witness some major cracks unfold.

Re: “Friday Roundtable: Kozachik & Fimbres

I think Kozachik and Fimbres both did a good job answering the questions, and I liked seeing that they were in general agreement on the important issues that were brought up regarding the budget. I look forward to seeing how they work together.

The tea leaves huh? I like that choice of words.

Re: “Latest Election Results: Black Swan Triumphant!

How many additional votes were counted and how many are left to go? Given that turnout was higher on the east-side, trended anti-incumbent, not to mention Republicans don't like mailing their ballots in, this one could close within 100 either way.

Re: “Early Ballots: The Numbers

Latest numbers just posted, BBG only down by 240 votes, Kozachik widens lead...

Re: “Early Ballots: The Numbers

The suspense is killing me! What I would like to see is the precinct breakdown of turnout on election day.
