Regina Romero means well – she is concerned about the expense of El Rio golf course, which is losing the city millions of dollars, and she also wants to attract jobs and industry to Tucson to bolster the local economy.
So when she puts these two goals together what does she come up with ? Selling off city property to a “for profit” “christian” “University”.
Why not a fertilizer factory ? It would be less polluting, and pay more taxes.
Just what Tucson needs is 5,000 little Pat Robertsons running around and voting but paying no taxes.
Since our Dobson controlled State Legislature is currently busy passing the Christian Bigotry Protection Act, which allows anyone to ignore non-discrimination laws as long as they claim to be “religious”, Grand Canyon University can discriminate against gays and persecute them with impunity.
Is this the kind of “industry” Tucson wishes to attract ?
Give me copper mine pollution or exploding fertilizer plants any day.
