Re: “‘Let’s get to work’: Ducey Touts Accomplishments, Lists Water and Education as Top Priorities

The senate did not lose any seats to the Democrats, they had 17 and still have 17.

Re: “One-Term Wonder?

I love it when Democrats from swing districts talk about their legislation they will introduce after they win election. They forget to mention the majority if GOP does not hear bills from such people just as when the Ds controlled years ago. It is a matter of life, majority rules.

Re: “Preseason Scrimmage

How do these people work with the GOP majority? They cannot attend GOP caucus where all of the bills to pass are approved, none of their bills get hearings, so what are they going to work on with the GOP? A new state lizard? And the shots at Rio Nuevo are fiction, everything is on the web site, they just need to look, no money went to Marriott, RN paid for the parking garage open to the public with a guaranteed revenue stream from the hotel for spaces, and even that was not required in the deal after all, so no RN money. And the money RN gets would go to Phoenix if not kept here by RN, sounds like a great platform for a D from Tucson. Also, remember it was the Democrats who misspent RN money prior to 2010. And to keep sending all Democrats to the Legislature is as good of an idea as electing them to the Sonora legislature, that would be about as good a deal for Tucson, at least we would not have to pay them for their total lack of political clout.

Re: “Republican Clodfelter Moves Ahead in Central Tucson House Race

This must be from la-la land. I know Bruce Wheeler and he said the truth about a D from Pima County, and I doubt very much he said that about the Rs. The Rs from Pima County have had plenty of clout which is sorely missing these days. If the Ds forgot to show up one day in Phoenix, no one would notice, except not being able to provide the "loyal oppostion" debates which is their role in political life. Having one more Republican, dare I say the only R in the City of Tucson limits given the loss of an R in LD 2 , which is a multiple county district, will keep the City of Tucson and Pima County's voice in the majority caucus. And that is most important, as political decisions and committee chairmen emanate from there, not from the minority caucuses.

Re: “Guest Opinion

Arizona is an "at will" employment state which means you can fire anybody for anything, as long as it does not violate some law on the books. Even bueaty queens who get fat and violate their contract.

Re: “Pocketbook Politics

You have gotten she and the City Council ran Rio Nuevo prior to the legislature taking it away in 2010, what a wonderful job that was!

Re: “Rep. Randy Friese Tells Us Where He Stands on K-12 Funding

One thing missed by the media in Tucson is Rep. Friese is in the minority in Phoenix, the Republicans have controlled the House since 1966 with no interruptions by the Democrats since than until now and not likely to in the future. Thus, whatever he has to add to the debate is as the loyal opposition, which means what he proposes will not get enacted. If he did not show up no one would know it in Phoenix, or care. It is time for Tucson to elect Republicans to the House so they can particpate in the GOP caucus where the decisions are made.
