From the Ward 1 incumbent:

Dear Friends and Neighbors,
 
Our campaign is off to a great start (that’s what Grijalva told me to start with).  Our team of volunteers has collected the maximum of required nominating signatures from our neighbors in Ward One, and now we’re on to the next phase.  But these are tough political times, and we’re not taking anything for granted.  In Tucson’s last city election, Republicans managed to score a narrow victory (63% is more like a decent whoopin’!)  by using independent expenditure committees and nasty anonymous attack ads. (You mean threatening layoffs and holding back revenue reports to scare voters was noble?)  Things didn’t get any better for us in 2010: we lost one of our finest (Nancy Young Wright, really?) state reps to a Tea Party novice, and watched helplessly as Governor Jan Brewer sailed to victory on corporate tax giveaways (Gadsden’s not a giveaway? Free Rent to Maynards, but not to others at Depot?) , anti-immigrant legislation and massive education cuts.
 
This year’s upcoming city election is about more than just Tucson.  It’s about whether Republicans and their corporate backers (yes, the Pima Dems refuse checks from business people!?!) can continue to erode Southern Arizona’s progressive strength (Progressive strenth like $230 million of Rio Nuevo waste, Westside embarassments like Gadsden and Mission Gardens?) and inject Pima County with the kind of politics that have embarrassed our state on the national stage. 
 
I am the only Democratic candidate (and pre-endorsed by Jeff Rogers and the Pima Dem Party, that doesnt’ sound progressive) in this year’s City Council election cycle facing opposition in the Primary, so we especially need your help now. We are trying to complete our fundraising by the end of May for the election August 30.  I am participating in the City of Tucson’s matching funds program, so each dollar you give is doubled, and will enable us to send a strong message to voters. The maximum contribution is $430—but your contribution of $10, $25, or $50 will prepare us to overcome the challenges ahead this election year.
Click HERE to contribute to my campaign today and stand up for our families, neighborhoods, and businesses!  (Having a business roundtable doesn’t mean you actually care about business.)
 
In community,
Regina Romero
 
P.S.  We still have a long way to go, and we need volunteers to help bring my message to the voters in our neighborhoods, click HERE to sign up for a shift!  We need your help knocking on doors, making phone calls, and helping out at events!

P.S. #2:  My husband and I are still using Ruth McClung campaign signs to protect our driveway from a nagging dripping oil pan on our car.
