David Abie Morales used to blog here at Tucsoncitizen.com for about two years. Now he has his own blogsite “Three Sonorans News” at http://threesonorans.com/, “progressive and activist news from Tucson and Arizona”. He was one of our most popular bloggers, and was a Ph.D Candidate in Applied Math at the University of AZ.
I recently learned that his father with the same name David Morales is running for one of four seats on the Marana Town Council. This is a nonpartisan race with an upcoming March 12, 2013 primary, with six candidates competing:
Patti Comerford, incumbent
Herb Kai, incumbent
Carol McGorray, incumbent
Jon Post, incumbent
Website on Morales, a retired San Manuel miner and former Marana Councilmember: http://davidcmorales.com/. He also got his bachelor’s degree from the UA Eller College of Management, and is a freelance writer.
“Any candidate receiving a majority of all votes cast at the Primary Election will be declared elected without running in the General Election” on May 21, 2013. See Marana Town Elections (click here).
For info about the current Marana Town Council, click here for their website. The Mayor (Ed Honea) and two other Council members (David Bowen and Roxanne Ziegler) are up for election in 2015.
Upcoming is a candidate forum for this town council race at the Marana Health Center (MHC) on Wed. January 30, 2013, 6:30 p.m., 13395 N. Marana Main Street.
I wonder how many people who vote in this Marana Town Council non-partisan primary will confuse the two men since they have the same first and last name. David Abie Morales aka DA Morales, the son told me he is a Democrat which is obvious from his online articles, and that his dad is a Republican. By the way, the Dad’s full name is David C. Morales.
