Doug Martin from KVOI uses the airways, print with Good News Tucson and now in the blogosphere to get his message out. Doug’s recent post on TucsonTownHall.com pointed to the fact that we aren’t hearing a lot from our community leaders about the Accenture Match Play. The event is a huge win for our region and national exposure for our tourism industry comes at a critical time.

Read Doug’s full post HERE. Below is a great observation;

We should show our appreciation to Accenture as the sponsor and Cottonwood Properties the developer of Ritz-Carlton in Dove Mountain. It would also be wonderful if our city and county elected officials recognized and applauded these folks for benefiting our community, instead of waiting until Accenture looks for another place to play.

I posted a few weeks back about Tucson’s 1st Annual,  First Night – New Year’s Eve Celebration HERE. You know what struck me the day after the event?  Where were our city council members? I did see Nina and her staff down town with volunteers and t-shirts, but where were the rest of our elected officials. If anyone saw a council person other than Nina leave a comment.

You would think with all the heat around Rio Nuevo we’d see all the elected kissing babies and shaking hands. The fact that a high profile event held in the heart of our downtown redevelopment would merit the “full court press” of support. I guess they were too busy.
