Re: “Crisis of Confidence: City Transportation Staff Called Out on Double-Dealing

Who is a stakeholder? What does someone have to do to become a recognized stakeholder?

"It is not enough that a person is merely interested as a member of the general public in the resolution of the dispute. The person must have a personal stake in the outcome of the controversy."

Why should one stakeholder have more standing than another?

How should decision makers weigh the positions taken (values expressed) of various stakeholders? How should the presumed positions (values) of segments of the general public be included that have not been expressed?

Re: “Mailbag

Re: "I can't imagine skyscrapers eight to 14 stories high in any Tucson neighborhood."

The only one I can think of is Tucson's 4th highest building, the 16 story (246 ft.) building in the SW corner of the Highland Vista Cinco Via neighborhood, at Broadway/Rosemont.

Re: “More Opposition to Public Safety First Initiative: Goldwater Institute Says Prop 200 "Won’t Put Public Safety First, It Will Just Bloat City Government"

Bottom line: Any crime is too much crime. If Tucson's crime counts or crime rates were half of what they are, it would still be too much crime. Twice the number of cops, of course, will not cut the counts or rates in half. Smarter crime prevention is our best hope.

Every year, Tucson has a record high number of people living within its boundaries. Growing community - more people at risk of being a crime victim. Crimes per 100,000 persons (or similar rates) account for this growth.

Sexual assault, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny and violent crime counts and especially rates are down since 1995.

You are safer now in Tucson than you were 14 years ago.
