Re: “Mailbag

RE: Prop 200
It was overwhelmingly defeated, but before the press fades on Prop 200, I wanted to speak up for the many realtors, like myself, who wanted nothing to do with it and worked hard to defeat it. It is atrocious (and possibly even illegal?) that TAR (Tucson Association of Realtors) poured over $135,000 dollars into something so ill-conceived, and without the consent of its membership. Of COURSE when surveyed, most citizens say safety is a concern. Like fresh air, enough money to pay rent, a close playground... safety is a concern. But to manipulate statistics that clearly show a decline in violent crime over this decade, to hype it up with fear-mongering like that which one hears from rightwing pundits, that's what's criminal. I am a downtown realtor who has never, not once, had a client tell me they won't choose Tucson because of our lack of adequate law enforcement. What builds community and neighborhoods are the neighbors! Events, community education & opportunities, working together to put in water harvesting, to clean up elders yards, to watch out for one another... that is the best focus for Tucsonans who want to improve well-being and a sense of comfort in our homes. Count me as one realtor pleased that we defeated Prop 200!
