Rep. Patterson in on Wake Up Tucson tomorrow morning at 6:30am. Daniel is a freshman Democrat law maker representing downtown and parts of south Tucson. Daniel has a back ground as the president of a downtown neighborhood and as an ecologist working to protect the desert.

Daniel has gained bipartisan support for a bill he’s introduced to toughen Arizona’s whistle blower laws for things like Medicare fraud. Read more HERE and HERE.

Daniel had some strong words for fellow Southern Arizona legislators Antenori and Paton for their criticism of Rio Nuevo and TIF funding. Read the post HERE. It seems like Patterson has some history to back up this comments;

I actually represent downtown and have lived there with my family for a long time. I served many years on the Tucson Planning Commission, where we dealt in detail with trying to help improve and streamline conditions for business and downtown revitalization. I also served many years as an active President of a historic downtown neighborhood. Not once has my friend Antenori asked me about about anything having to do with downtown.

Rio Nuevo and the ineffective leadership in Tucson will most definitely be part of our discussions. Tune in!
