Our fellow blogger over at Blog For Arizona took aim at the Republican legislators for using end around to take control of Rio Nuevo from the City of Tucson and to institute non-partisan elections. Safier even goes as far as to rally the democrats in Southern Arizona over these issues in the 2010 elections;

Target every Republican who votes to allow Maricopa to dictate to Southern Arizona about local matters. Let them defend turning us into a colony of our imperial Maricopa overlords, or a wholly owned subsidiary of Maricopa, Inc.

News flash, Maricopa doesn’t care. We aren’t taken serious. We are tolerated and thrown a bone once in a while to keep us happy. Just like cousin Eddy from Vacation. We show up, drink all the beer, empty the sewer tanks on the RV and act like we own the place.

How about taking aim at the complete incompetence surrounding Rio Nuevo from the ruling city council (all Democrats – I did say ALL because we aren’t claiming the Mayor anymore). The miss steps, inside deals, starts and stops and choice in people to run the various programs are absolutely, unequivocally a direct sign of TERRIBLE leadership. Blame Maricopa, blame Republicans, blame their mothers for not cuddling them enough but don’t ever take personal responsibility.

As for non-partisan elections; Tucson has been Democratically controlled for decades – take a look around……how’s that working out for us? Take the politics out of the equation (we all know it’s not possible but maybe, just maybe this is a step in the positive direction) and focus on the basics of local government.

Thanks for doing what you do Blog For Arizona. The different views are always appreciated.
