I’m a registered Democrat, but if I was non-partisan, Republican or Independent, allowing me to vote in the Republican primary election, I would vote for Scott Bartle.  Let me state why.

Not happy with robot calls
Posted: August 13, 2014 - 4:00 am

Yesterday, Aug, 4, I received eight robot calls on my home phone from various primary candidates running for office in Arizona. I also have received “survey” polls asking me skewed questions like, “ Do you think candidate so and so is really a conservative?” It is usually followed by a statement I have paraphrased as follows.....” Did you know that this schmuck wants to take away your social security, and open the borders to Irish pub crawlers from Dublin?”

Re: Cannot vote for Hiremath, July 23 - Maksim states that “Selecting a candidate for public office based purely on his/her support for same-sex unions is silly as selecting a candidate based purely on skin color or gender – witness our recent national experience with a sitting president and with a former Secretary of State.” Facts prove that the latter part of this statement is totally false. Facts show that the American people not only once, but twice, voted their conscience and selected Barack H. Obama & Joe Biden over John McCain and Sarah Palin and more recently over Mitt Romney (Mr. 47 percent) and Paul Ryan because past performance and the debates proved that the Obama-Biden team displayed the ability to better serve the American people. Ergo, skin color proved not to be the deciding factor but ability to do the job as displayed to the American people.

Re: establishing a satellite location in Oro Valley for the Tucson Children’s Museum — I hope that a location is selected from among the many vacant business sites that are awaiting new tenants in Oro Valley.

Lack of civility
Posted: August 06, 2014 - 4:00 am

In the last two Oro Valley candidate forums the subject of “civility” has been discussed.  And the tenor of the discussion indicates the two challengers were pointing the finger at the incumbents (Hiremath, Hornat, Snider and Waters) as the source of the incivility. I believe Councilman Waters properly addressed the matter by saying that to disagree is not being uncivil. However I must agree that there is a lack of civility on the part of three sitting council members, none of whom are currently running for election.

Hiremath has demonstrated leadership
Posted: August 06, 2014 - 4:00 am

A recent opinion here went on in some length about why she simply cannot vote for Mayor Hiremath. She went on and on about her dismay that our current mayor does not demonstrate “quality leadership on her key issues that affect her/our community.”
