August 2 debate Between Supervisor Ray Carroll and opponent, Sean Collins, part oneby Robert Harris on Aug. 25, 2012, under politics, Rosemont copper
On August 2, 2012 the Tucson tea party and KNST sponsored a debate between supervisor Ray Carroll of district 4 and the opponent. Sean Collins. It was an excellent opportunity to see the difference between supervisor Carroll, a man who is well-versed and knowledgeable in Pima County and Arizona politics and his opponent who is not knowledgeable in Pima County politics or needs.
His opponent, Sean Collins, appeared to be totally unprepared and ill-informed. Sean Collins appears to have one subject that he repeats consistently and thats his support of Rosemont Copper. In the background, you can usually find a gentleman by the name of Randy Graf, for those of you who don’t remember him he was the man who proposed Green Valley secede from Pima County. Now he works as a PR consultant and community interface for Rosemont Copper, he also appears to be the man who pulls the strings on Rosemonts puppet (Sean Collins).
Sean Collins waived a paper in the air, during one of his questions that he was to answer, the question was “Have you or would you ever support a Democratic candidate over a Repubblican candidate?” The question was asked by the host for the evening, talkshow host Garrett Lewis, who appears to have developed into an attack dog For Rosemont Copper. It is my contention that Sean Collins was given the questions in advance and prepped in advance. The preparation was not adequate concerning this question, as he answered the question in the negative he waved a paper in the air and said he had information concerning Supervisor Carroll supporting a man, whom he said was a Democrat, by the name of Salette Latas. I assume Randy Graf was one of the people who helped to prepare Sean Collins for the debate, he simply neglected to tell Sean Collins that Salette Latas was not a man but a woman.
I have refrained from making too large an issue of Mr. Collins defeat during the debate, but I am going to post, a few, articles concerning some of the questions. Ask yourself this question, why would Sean Collins happen to have a paper discussing the candidacy of Salette Latas in the 2007 Oro Valley city Council race unless he knew the questions in advance. I would say the odds are about the same as the sun and the moon colliding at three o’clock this afternoon or having an infrared camera posted at the one particular sign on Highway 83 that was reported stolen by the Collins campaign.
Take five minutes, watch the video and make your own decision. My decision is number one, he should have been better prepared or more knowledgeable, number two his handlers failed in his preparation. Salette Latas is a “Gold Star” Mother who lost her son in the war and asked Supervisor Carroll for his endorsement .
