Pay $5 to hear legislators talk

Want to hear what Republican legislators have to say about the hemorrhaging state budget? It will cost you $5.

The Maricopa County Republican Committee is holding a Thursday meeting at the Scottsdale Civic Center featuring Republican legislative leaders including chairmen of the Senate and House appropriations committees.

They will “address budget problems and possible solutions,” according to a press release from the GOP committee.

The meeting is open to the public. But a $5 “donation” will be taken at the door, the release read.

That’s strange. Public officials speaking in a public building and members of the public must make a “donation” to a political party to hear them?

Legislative leaders should be traveling around the state, talking and listening to citizens concerned about the budget – and not charging admission.

They do work for us, after all.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
