My dad used to say there were two things that were waste of time…trying to get your neighbor’s dog to stop pooping in your yard and telling someone how they should vote.
But, the curse of a columnist is we always think we can make a difference throwing some words around.
Tucson has a very important primary election coming up as an all mail ballot.
For reasons only those deeply embedded in Tucson’s life and culture can explain, the Republicans failed to get a candidate with enough signatures on their petitions to get on the ballot.
So up popped businesman Rick Grinnell who threw his hat in the ring as a Republican write in candidate.
A guy like Grinnell is exactly what Tucson’s city hall needs… a pro-business advocate.
If you are a Republican and you live in Tucson, I urge you to write in Rick Grinnell on your ballot and mail it in. He needs over 1,000 write in votes to advance to the general election.
Tucson needs a vigorous debate about its future.
