The Sun City Vistoso Republican Club is sponsoring an “Important Debate” Featuring Republican Candidates for Pima County Board of Supervisors, District 1 Supervisor
Tuesday April 17, 2012, 3:00 p.m. at the Social Hall Auditorium
Press release from Sun City Vistoso Republican Club:
Why is this Important? Here are some reasons:
Spending is out of Control in Pima County. Pima County has about $1.5 billion in Debt. This is about 3 times that of all the other counties in the State of Arizona COMBINED.
Property taxes continue rising while home values have dropped.
Pima County has excessive regulation and an unfriendly climate for businesses resulting in a loss of jobs for our residents.
Pima County has a $1.3 billion dollar operating budget yet roads are not maintained and have now become a public safety hazard.
It is vitally important that we elect the very best candidate for this office; someone who is up on the issues and dedicated to exposing the problems and doing everything that can be done to correct them.
Our upcoming District 1 debate forum will allow you and other residents to decide who that candidate should be and subsequently who to vote for. These issues affect all of us. All Sun City Vistoso residents are invited regardless of political affiliation.
Please arrive by 2:45 p.m. as seating is limited and the debate will start
promptly at 3:00 p.m. April 17 is the Special Election Day. No visible campaign material may be worn in the Social Hall.
Republican District 1 Supervisor Ann Day is retiring, and all four Republican candidates seeking her position were invited to this debate. Candidates Mike Hellon, Stuart McDaniel, Ally Miller have committed to attend, but LD 26 House Rep. Vic Williams may be unable to attend if the Arizona Legislature is still in session. Mike Hellon ran unsuccessfully for CD 8 House in 2006, and Miller and McDaniel are political newcomers.
April 17 is also the day for the special CD 8 House primary (seat vacated by injured Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords), so it will be a busy day. Four Republicans are running in their primary (LD 30 State Senator Frank Antenori, Jesse Kelly, Martha McSally, & Dave Sitton). Democrat Ron Barber is running unopposed, and Green Party candidate Charles Manolakis of Tucson is facing a write-in challenge from Richard Grayson of Apache Junction. Vote wisely.
