They are corrupt, have mismanaged MILLIONS of dollars to the point of being broke, are almost at the point of pushing their biggest moneymaker (Tucson Mineral and Gem Show) out of town, and their "vision" of Rio Nuevo has been nothing but a boondoggle. They have done next to nothing to help lure new corporations to the city to help create "good" jobs. I used to be proud to say I was from Tucson, but now I am just embarrassed.
A Tale of Two Cities:

Phoenix: where 'WASP' mores still hold sway (despite Phil Gordon's best efforts) and things still get done.

Tucson: where Hispanic culture (with its incompetence and curruption) is more dominant.

Need I say more?

Flagstaff: a cut rate Boulder, Co. Both places are overpriced and have low wages. Needless to say: said Sanctuary Cities need to have their illegal alien populace kicked out; if the above towns collapse............oh well.

You'd think the city with probably the highest property crime rate in the USA might actually think this bill was a good idea. But when did good ideas ever sway your average politician?

I wonder if Tuscon and Flagstaff will state in their lawsuit that they are going to refuse state money from such a racist state. That would be the admirable thing to do.

If you're not planning on visiting the city council what difference does it make? Go to Flagstaff. Enjoy Flagstaff. Leave the politics to the powers that be. And while you're there come to my Valley and have a great time! We are only about 50 miles southwest and TONS of things to see and do.
